Hot One-Flesh Union with Robby George

George argues that only vaginal intercourse—“procreative-type” sex acts, as George puts it—can consummate this “multilevel” mind-body union. Only in reproduction, unlike digestion, circulation, respiration or any other bodily function, do two individuals perform a single function and thus become, in effect, “one organism.” … Unloving sex between married partners does not perform the same multilevel function, he argues, nor does oral or anal sex—even between loving spouses.

Awww yeah, baby, I’m ready
for some bodily sharing.
You know what I mean:
the earthy stuff. Let’s become
one organism. You on top?
I guess that’s OK as long as the
quarterback stays in the pocket.
It’s kinda unnatural, but I guess
the Lord thought it was all right…
after all…we’re still vaginal…OK,
now let me do my business.
Com! pre! hen! sive! UNITY!!!!!
Phew. Excellent coitus.
I’m sorry the Lord thinks your
orgasms are superfluous, dear,
but we’ve been over the
“extra rubbing” bit before. That’s not
part of the Lord’s great design.
Face it: Eve was responsible for the Fall.
Payback, as the kids say, is a female dog.
