The Vatican called sex “a gift from God” and urged Catholics not to watch porn

Pope Francis called sexual pleasure “a gift from God” and at the same time urged Catholics not to watch porn.

According to the pontiff, sex “undermines pornography”, writes The Guardian.

Sexual pleasure “should be valued”, but sex without a relationship can give rise to “various forms of addiction”, Pope Francis said.

“We must defend love, and winning the battle with lust can be a lifelong endeavor“, says the head of the Catholic Church.

The topic of sex was probably raised by the Vatican leader in response to the indignation of some parishioners due to the appointment to the position of the head of the Vatican Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith of the author of a book with “overtly sexual content” – Argentine Cardinal Victor Manuel Fernandez.

It is noted that one of the chapters of the book “Mystical Passion: Spirituality and Sensuality”, which the cardinal wrote in 1998, describes the difference between male and female orgasms.

After his appointment, the cardinal said that “I would not write about it now.”

Earlier we reported that Pope Francis told whether there is a place for gender diversity in the church.
