Religion Sex Politics Setting Sex record Straight

Integration of Sex & Religion

Although sex and spirituality are often treated as very separate issues, and even understood to be in conflict in many societies, including U.S. society, we believe that sexuality and spirituality are natural and intersecting parts of human being’s lives and that for many people sex is deeply spiritual. The Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance understands that sexual freedom and freedom of religion are both fundamental human rights, and that neither one can negate the other.

Our culture needs a sexual ethic focused on personal relationships and social justice rather than particular sexual acts. All persons have the right and responsibility to lead sexual lives that express love, justice, mutuality, commitment, consent and pleasure. Grounded in respect for the body and for the vulnerability that intimacy brings, this ethic fosters physical, emotional and spiritual health. It accepts no double standards and applies to all persons, without regard to sex, gender, color, age, bodily condition, marital status or sexual orientation.
