"Kai eiden o Theos ta panta osa epoiese, kai idou, kala lian."
"And God saw all the things that He had made, and behold, they were very good."
(Genesis 1:31 LXX)

And isn't what is blessed by God not only good but holy too? Well then, after the Flood:
"...God blessed Noe and his sons and said to them:'Increase and multiply and fill the Earth and have dominion over it.'" (Genesis 9:1 LXX)

Now Noe and his sons were not in Paradise, but living under the conditions of the Fall, so how exactly were they to multiply in the way God blessed them to? Surely God wasn't blessing them to have sex?  Shocked Goodness, that would mean that sexual love between a man and a woman in marriage is not only good, but holy! Wink

George we are living under the New Testement!
Did you read my New Testement quotes?

And I did not insinuate you did; merely stated that is what you believe.

A.

Actually what Christ said about the two becoming one flesh makes me pause for thought. However Christians are called to a supernatural as opposed to merely natural destiny ( and what is natural cannot in itself be said to be sinful).

you can't convince me that it is not possible to objectify your spouse
That's just spiffing, because I don't think anyone here is trying to.

- and I'm not even in a relationship.
I have a lovely cousin in Greece. She's an accomplished pianist, runs a bookshop and comes from a pious family, 30 years old.....Cheesy

Hang on! If you two get together and marry that would mean you and I would be related! Shocked

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
