Sexual relationships

Quakers aim to be non-judgemental about people and things. They tend to see sex as fundamentally a gift, and their attention is focused on the way it is used in human relationships.

Sexual activity is essentially neither good nor evil; it is a normal biological activity which, like most other human activities, can be indulged in destructively or creatively. Towards a Quaker view of sex, 1963

No relationship can be a right one which makes use of another person through selfish desire. Advices, 1964

An act which (for example) expresses true affection between two individuals and gives pleasure to them both, does not seem to us to be sinful by reason alone of the fact that it is homosexual. Towards a Quaker view of sex, 1963
