Procreation is not the only reason for people to have sex, a sister argues - a breath of air in a stultifying church. It's hard to say what Wives looking nsa Ford Heights weirder: A Sister of Mercy writing about the Kama Sutra, sexual desire and "our yearnings for pleasure.
Just the latest chapter in the Vatican's thuggish crusade to push U. Even for a church that moves glacially, this was classic.
