Sex on the Sabbath

A man wonders if having sex on the Sabbath is a sin, because he is not sure if sex is WORK or PLAY.

So he goes to a Priest and asks for his opinion on this question.

After consulting the Bible, the Priest says, “My son, after an exhaustive search,

I am positive that sex is WORK and is therefore not permitted on Sundays.”

The man thinks, “What does a Priest know about sex? So he goes to a Minister, who after all is a married man, and experienced in  this matter. He queries the Minister and receives the same reply.

Sex is WORK, and therefore not for the Sabbath.

Not pleased with this reply, he seeks out the ultimate authority, a man of a thousand years of tradition and knowledge.

In other words, he goes to see a Rabbi.

The Rabbi ponders the question, then states, “My son, sex is definitely PLAY.

Shocked, the man replies, “Rabbi, how can you be so sure it is PLAY when so many others tell me sex is WORK?”

The Rabbi softly speaks, “If sex were WORK, ……… Wife would have the Maid do it.
