Sex On The Sabbath
It wasn't the answer the man was hoping for though, and he thought to himself, "Wait! What does a priest know about sex? He's celibate and abstinent"
So he went to consult a protestant minister - one who was a married man and had sexual experience. He asked the minister for the answer and received the same reply. "Sex is work and not appropriate for the Sabbath!"
Not pleased with the reply either and getting frustrated, he sought out the ultimate authority - a man of thousands of years of tradition and knowledge. He asked a rabbi.
The rabbi pondered the question and stated, "My son, sex is definitely play." The man replied, "Rabbi, how can you be so sure when so many others tell me sex is work?" The rabbi softly spoke, "Because, my son ... if sex were work, then my wife would have the maid do it."
