The oral sex ban, however, was neither removed, modified, or clarified as the only additional directive to leaders was that "if the member has enough anxiety about the propriety of the conduct to ask about it, the best course would be to discontinue it".
Subsequent discussion of marital sex warned against behaviors that the church considered unnatural, impure, and unholy including Spencer Condie's warning that when couples "participate in unholy practices" during their physical intimacy it can become a "disruptive force" in their marriage.
Since 1985 the church has provided a manual for parents to use in discussing sexuality with their children.
The manual includes statements that "prophets have condemned [masturbation] as a sin" and "perversion of the body's passions" that causes one to "become carnal".
Additionally, individuals reporting higher religiosity were more likely to consider themselves addicted to porn regardless of their comparative usage rate.
Such a marriage is called a "celestial marriage" and is a particular instance of a "sealing" which binds people together in the afterlife.Sexuality has a prominent role within the theology of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), which teaches that gender is defined in the premortal existence, and that part of the purpose of mortal life is for men and women to be sealed together, forming bonds that allow them to progress eternally together in the afterlife.It also teaches that sexual relations within the framework of opposite-sex marriage is healthy, necessary, and ordained of God.For example, church president Spencer Kimball, called the "soul kiss" an "abomination" that leads to necking, petting, and "illegitimate babies".
He further stated that even when dating for a time a kiss should be a "clean, decent, sexless one like the kiss between a mother and son".In his influential 1956 treatise Doctrines of Salvation, then apostle Joseph Fielding Smith called birth control a wickedness which leads to damnation and caused the downfall of nations.
