Quora Answer : Why do Judaism, Christianity and Islam, in their more fundamentalist versions, have such an obsession with sex, the role of women in society, their covering up their bodies in public, and reproductive rights?

Sex is a very very powerful human motivator. Anyone who wants power over you will try to take control over sex. That ranges from corporations, who use sex in advertising to sell you things, to organised crime (pimps sell prostitutes, partly to make money, but mainly to signal their power in their community), to religions which want to assert their right to be the gatekeepers of sex.
