Jewish traditions across different eras and regions devote considerable attention to sexuality. In Judaism, sexuality is viewed as having both positive and negative potential, depending on the context in which it is expressed. Many sources express a positive attitude towards sex between a married couple. On the other hand, sexual activity is also viewed as a grave sin if it is outside of the bounds of permissible behavior. According to medieval Rabbinical enumerations of the commandments , the commandment to procreate Genesis is the first mitzvah in the Torah. There is another Torah commandment known as onah which obligates a man to provide pleasurable sexual intercourse to his wife on a regular basis if she desires it , even if they have already had children, or are incapable of having children.
