With the rise of modernism, an opposing, permissive approach to sexual morality rose to usurp the traditional approach in American culture. Under modernism, which denies spiritual life, sex has no necessary purpose or signiﬁcance. Individuals use sex however they choose, and what they choose does not matter to anyone else. Sex is strictly a personal choice, and the only thing everyone must accept is that everyone must have sex regardless of whether or not he or she is married.
