Is There Sex in Heaven?

The Human
 
Is there sex in Heaven?
  It seems there'd be no use
For those who are in Heaven
  Don't need to reproduce
No need for little babies
  No need of man and wife
For those who are in Heaven
  Enjoy eternal Life
 
The Angel
 
Sadly, my friend
When it comes to the end
The bodily pleasures are few,
There's no need to eat
You've no legs and no feet
So a walk in the hills is out too!
 
Your body, once sound,
Has been left in the ground -
It's only your spirit that's free,
So there's nothing to do
But admire the view
From the clouds floating over the sea.
 
The Human
 
So there's no sex in Heaven
  As far as we can tell
I've just got one more question -
  Is there any sex in Hell?
