The Puritans and Sex: Happy Valentine's Day!

In modern-day usage the word "puritanical" means "stern, refraining from worldly pleasures and sensuality." (See definition.)

The reality is that the Puritans exalted sex within marriage, far above the Catholic Church, and above most of their contemporaries. See this article and this article for more details.

A toast to our Puritan forebears! And Happy Valentine's Day!
