Why does God care about S E X?

Why does God care about S E X?
Boru brought up a good point in the Gay thread and I thought we could dive deeper with the question as the actual focus.

Why does god care about our genitals so much?

It's one of the things that really influenced my incredulity and atheism that a god would be so focused on our genitals and what we're doing with them. I know in Mormonism, the focus on sexual purity and repression is part of the BITE model programming for the cult(sex being such a natural part of being human, you can influence and control people by making them feel guilt and shame around this natural instinct they'll never be free from) and a core part of the doctrine(you can't have trans or gay folks because the model for the planetary rewards in the afterlife is Adam and 5+ Eves; The harem god factory doesn't work with Adam and 5+ Steves or if Eve was assigned male at birth, although it'd probably be more fun to run around an empty planet with a bunch of very gay god sex happening). So, I understand for that religious cult why they focus on genitals so much.

But why does god have this focus in other religions?

Religion in the ancient World was about control, and controlling who had (and did not have) access to fertile females was naturally coopted by those in power who used religious authorities to maintain that power and access to that limited and valuable resource.
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

More like gigayears. If he ever does come, it's going to be a huge mess.
If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.

God would rather you masturbate than have sex with strange females. If you can't find a consistent sex partner, you're better off going solo. This is not unjustified.......the more females you have sex with, the greater your risk of getting a disease, plus getting a bunch of females pregnant would be a nightmare. God is just watching out for you, when He wants to "restrict" your sex life. Although you're free to do what you want. I know a lot of people would rather act like monkeys than dignified human beings.

Gods are interested in sex because we are. It’s not a control thing, or, if we prefer..not just or only or always. Anything at all fundamental to the human experience will find a story relating that thing to gods, to the divine. That’s what they’re for.

So, yes, well tell god stories about the confluence of sex and control- but also about liberation, freedom, release.

I have met quite a few "strange" females ... sometimes strange can be fun!

For the Catholics sex was all about procreation. All that 'be fruitful and multiply' stuff. It wasn't for fun or pleasure. It was just for breeding more Catholics...within the confines of a Catholic marriage of course. Or in the case of a Catholic and an other having kids, the kids were to be raised Catholic...like my siblings and me.
                              It's like herding cats around here...feral cats, at that.
