Reflecting on the book of Genesis (2:25), John Paul II writes:

The human body, with its sex – its masculinity and femininity – seen in the very mystery of creation, is not only a source of fruitfulness and of procreation, as in the whole natural order, but contains “from the beginning” the “spousal” attribute, that is, the power to express love: precisely that love in which the human person becomes a gift and – through this gift – fulfills the very meaning of his being and existence. (TOB 15:1)

“Man…cannot fully find himself except through a sincere gift of himself” Gaudium et Spes, 24
