    Besides the "72 virgins" is there sex in the afterlife? Like sex in heaven or hell?
    buddhism has reincarnation so in theory there would be sex. What you think. Your opinions please.... and should there be.

    Also if there is sex, what about weddings? ...

    ) but Jesus did say there was no marriage.

    Although, thinking about it, if you have no physical body how would you have sex?

    I think there should be sex. It'll only last a couple of decades anyway before they get bored of it and then they'll have all of eternity to look forward to watching Matlock re-runs.

    I do not think there is a place that people go when they die and do anything like sex, marriage or anything else. Once your dead, your dead and there's nothing else afterwards. Now I do realize that many BELIEVE there is something else but as yet no one has ever come back from there and told us about it. There needs to be proof it exists, the afterlife that is, to me but there's no way it can be proven even if someone did ever return because all they would have is their word and nothing else.

    If there were, wouldn't you get sick of it after 1,000 years or so?

    Just take a couple centuries hiatus from it. Everything in moderation. You would be raring to go and maybe have thought up some new positions.

    and I hear it takes a long time to master everything about karma sutra.

    I would speculate that IF there were a place like that time itself wouldn't be noticed at all so therefore you'd never really know how "long" you were there.

    Hilarious. Heaven is like a zoo full of horny primates, and this is god's plan?

    Some early, non-dualist Christians (who still grazed older Judaism) believed that you got your body back in the afterlife, rather than becoming genderless immaterial beings. So debate over whether or not the applicable equipment would still be functional did arise. However, today's retro-liberal Christians (like Nancey Murphy), of a similar school of thought, point-out that those "new bodies" would be resistant to all the decay of ordinary flesh and blood. Ergo their interpretations are equivalent to some biblical version of a transhuman or posthuman soma -- no traditional "soul" involved but instead restoration of the former brain's information patterns in a new type of physical body.

    Ironically, the belief in a sexless intellectual existence following death may have its roots more in Plato and Aristotle than semitic / Abrahamic origins (as illustrated again by male-centrist Islam featuring "each man can be married to dark-eyed female entities called houri"). Alan Segal of Columbia University's Barnard College also contends that "Zoroastrians believed there was sex in heaven, but people would wean themselves away from both food and sex as they got used to being dead." Whether or not that indirectly contributed to or influenced later muslim beliefs is anyone's guess.

    Well there can't be marriage in heaven since it's "'till death do we part."
