    FORNICATION IS NOT A SIN IF YOU ARE SINGLE.... UNLESS IT INVOLVES PROSTITUTION

    The Civil Writer Magazine

    Religious institutions and their scholars have used fornication as a mechanism to stop teen pregnancies and to scare single adults from having sex. Simply lying for a good cause. Christian dictionaries have ignored its etymology [origin] in Hebrew and Latin and put an incorrect Christian spin on it serving only as a control mechanism. The prefix fornix (n.) from 1680s in reference to various arched formations (especially in anatomy), from Latin fornix "arch", from a source akin to fornus "brick oven of arched or domed shape". On the surface it seems to have nothing to do with sex but it is capable of being understood from something involving an archway although it is not biblically implied.

    A brothel is commonly called a lupanar or lupanarium, from lupa, "she-wolf", slang for "prostitute," or fornix, a general term for a vaulted space or cellar where prostitutes hang out under an archway.

    Let me break this down; fornication is having paid sex with a "prostitute," or "fornix" it has no relationship to two consenting single people having sex. The only reason fornication would involve a single person is {if} they engaged in sex with a prostitute where money is exchanged for services. Note: For Roman Prostitutes, the brothels for prostitution was the arches under the circus a favorite location for prostitutes. The circuses were places ardent frequenters of the games of the circus were always ready at hand to satisfy the inclinations when the spectacles aroused. These arcade dens were called "fornices" from which comes our generic fornication. https://www.dictionary.com/browse/fornices
