No. First, You only consider sex a sin if it is within your religion to call it such. Second, Most religions (That I know of) Only consider sex outside of marriage a sin. (Or in some, just recreational sex is also a sin) You only call it a sin, if your religion states it to be one. So, To some, Sin doesn't exist. Making the answer "no".
According to some religions people should only have sex to procreate and that recreational sex is bad. NO. sex is not a sin but recreational sex can now kill you these days. Some STDs have that ability now. Also, a lot of diseases are becoming more and more antibiotic resistant, so you keep them forever.

God is the creator of sex. Part of his purpose in creating sex was for our pleasure. But God also set limits for the enjoyment of sex, for our protection. When we go outside those boundaries, we enter into sexual sin.
This day and age being promiscuous is common. It really depends on your religion.
God intended sex for procreation. Man turned it into a perversion! God intended it for intimate pleasure Between a married ( one man and one woman). It was His first institution ! The institution of marriage!)
Now regarding the questions you asked in your letter. Yes, it is good to abstain from sexual relations. But because there is so much sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman should have her own husband. But if they can?t control themselves, they should go ahead and marry. It?s better to marry than to burn with lust. (1 Corinthians 7:1, 2, 9 NLT)================================Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery. (Hebrews 13:4 NLT)
No, sex is not a sin. It was first used to procreate and fill the planet earth. God provided this provision for Adam and Eve. (Genesis 1:22) however, due to sin and imperfection, mankind has degraded the sexual provision. This is stated at Ephesians 4:19 and 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.
“For this is what God wills, the sanctifying of you, that you abstain from fornication... For God called us, not with allowance for uncleanness, but in connection with sanctification. So, then, the man that shows disregard is disregarding, not man, but God, who puts his holy spirit in you.”— 1 Thess. 4:3,7,8
“No fornicator or unclean person or greedy person—which means being an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of the Christ and of God.” — Ephesians 5:5
The bible teaches that sex should be reserved for a man and woman who are married to each other. "...it is well for a man not to touch woman; yet, because of prevalence of fornication, let each man have his own wife and each woman have her own husband."- 1 Corinthians 7:1,2.
From the Christian worldview, 'no' in some cases and 'yes' in some cases. The Biblical and Christian worldview is clear. God created man and woman, distinct and unique yet complimentary. Before there was 'sin' God brought man and woman together and blessed marriage and sex. Jesus blessed marriage between man and woman and the physical union.
It is consistently and rationally upheld as sacred for a committed married man and woman to enjoy all aspects of the oneness in marriage, including the gift of sex.
The Christian worldview is equally clear about the misuse and abuse of one's sexuality. It forbids pre-marital (fornication) sex, extra-marital (adultery), same-sex (homosexuality), bestiality. God's design and instructions are not random or capricious but for our own good.
Was sex the original sin that was committed by Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden? ? Answer: Many people are under the impression that the forbidden fruit in the garden of Eden represented sexual relations. However, that is not what the Bible teaches. Consider: Even before Eve was created, God commanded Adam not to eat the fruit of “the tree of the knowledge of good and bad.” (Genesis 2:15-18) Because Adam was alone, this prohibition could not have referred to sexual relations. In addition, God gave Adam and Eve an unambiguous command to “be fruitful and become many and fill the earth.” (Genesis 1:28) Would a loving God instruct the first couple to “fill the earth”—which, of course, involved having sexual relations—and then sentence them to death for obeying his instructions?—1 John 4:8.
No offense taken. PLEASE view the link below. There is one brief paragraph that provides an answer to your inquiry, based off Bible principles. Please view with your personal copy of the Bible and you will determine the answer for yourself. Hope this helps!
It depends. If you're married to the person you're having sex with, then it's totally fine. If you're having sex with another person besides your spouse (adultery,) or having sex before marriage, then it's a sin.
