Sex: Work or Play


A a newly married man wonders if having sex on Good Friday is a sin because he is not sure if sex is work or play. He asks a priest for his opinion on this question.

The priest says after consulting the Bible, “My son, after an exhaustive search I am positive sex is work and is not permitted on Good Friday.”

“The man thinks: “What does a priest know about sex?””

He goes to minister…a married man…for the answer and receives the same reply. “Sex is work and not for Good Friday!”

Not pleased with the reply, he seeks out a Rabbi. The Rabbi ponders the question and states, “My son — sex is definitely play.”

The man replies, “But Rabbi, how can you be so sure when so many others tell me sex is work?”

The Rabbi softly speaks, “If sex were work — my wife would have the maid do it.”
