Sex has been a particularly important topic in religion, where scholars and theologians have debated the definition, purpose, and modus operandi. The religion of Judaism takes a conservative but somewhat middle ground stance regarding the issue of human sexuality. Judaism regards sex as a "divine gift" from God, not solely for the purpose of procreation, as some Western religions might believe, but for the purpose of companionship and pleasure.

Instead, sexual activity is highly circumscribed in Jewish tradition, as the rabbis of the Talmud sought to use the human libido as a tool for increasing the population and strengthening marriage.
