Is sex on Sunday a sin???

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

Not pleased with the reply, he seeks out a Rabbi, a man of
thousands of years tradition and knowledge. The Rabbi
ponders the question, then states, "My son, sex is definitely play."
The man replies, "Rabbi, how can you be so sure when so many
others tell me sex is work?"

The Rabbi softly speaks, "My son, if sex were work, my wife
would have the maid do it."
