Did Mary and Joseph ever have sex?

Did Mary and Joseph ever have sex?
How do Christian denominations differ on this? From what I know, it is unthinkable for Catholics that Mary ever had sex with anyone, even her husband, and probably because Catholics are obsessed that their clergy is abstinent, so they see married couple not having sex as an inspiration.

Although "Matthew" is clear on this and says that they had sex, like in 1:25 "But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus."

Of course, he says "consummate" and not like vaginal or anal sex, so maybe Catholics interpret "consummate their marriage" as drinking tea from the same cup.

But how do other denominations stand on this? I gather that Mormons probably think they had plenty of sex, with lots of kids because they are big on family and polygamy.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

It's wicked even to think about Holy people having sex (or any other bodily function for that matter) You will burn in hell for even contemplating it! Mad
The meek shall inherit the Earth, the rest of us will fly to the stars.

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups

If we take Paul literally and seriously, Jesus had a brother named James.  

Galatians 1

18 Then after three years, I went up to Jerusalem to get acquainted with Cephas[b] and stayed with him fifteen days. 19 I saw none of the other apostles—only James, the Lord’s brother. 20 I assure you before God that what I am writing you is no lie.

Well you can imagine that, according to Vatican, God restored Mary's hymen after Jesus was born only so Joseph can tear it apart later. I mean would Joseph make God look like a fool?

They had sex as Jesus identifies james as a half brother.

James was a son of Mary and Joseph and therefore a half-brother to Jesus and brother to Joseph, Simon, Judas, and their sisters (Matthew 13:55). In the Gospels, James is mentioned a couple of times, but at that time he misunderstood Jesus’ ministry and was not a believer (John 7:2-5). James becomes one of the earliest witnesses of Jesus’ resurrection ().

Asking the question "Did Mary and Joseph have sex?", is like asking "Did Micky and Mini have sex?".

Maybe Jesus magically slipped around her saintly hymen, leaving Mary intact, since it would be a sin for him to take her virginity.  Plus, we know heavenly jizz works topically.  For reference:

I will have to add this to the list of things that keep me up at night like the question regarding 'did Adam and Eve have belly buttons'.   Dodgy
