Sexuality has a prominent role within the theology of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints LDS Churchwhich teaches that gender is defined in the premortal existenceand that part of the purpose of mortal life is for men and women to be sealed together, forming bonds that allow them to progress eternally together in the afterlife. It also teaches that sexual relations within the framework of opposite-sex marriage is healthy, necessary, and ordained of God. In contrast with some orthodox Christian movements, sexuality in the Church's theology is neither a product of original sin nor a "necessary evil".

The two-piece garments, worn every day by faithful Mormons beneath their clothing, represent covenants made by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. For years, Mormon women have complained -- privately -- about the fit, fabric choices and quality of the garments. The new survey conducted by their church gives them hope that meaningful changes can be made to their most intimate apparel.
I know it's a question of personal interpretation, but it seems to be one about which there could be some interesting discussion. That being said, what do y'all think. When do you think it's appropriate to remove your temple garments, and why?
To outsiders there is little more fascinating about the Mormon religion than the underwear that Mormon temple initiates are expected to wear day and night. All that time, the underwear questions were the first ones I got from people who found out I had been Mormon. A friend brought it up again last week at lunch.
