Sexuality in Orwell's 1984 is frowned upon. Sex between outer party members is strictly forbidden and punishable by death. The Party seeks to stamp out the sex instinct. The Party only recognizes sanctioned unions for the purpose of procreation to provide people to keep the party going. Huxley's novel bills sex to a favourite past time like going to Starbucks or something. Sex without meaning is encouraged. People are encouraged to live out their sexual fantasies every day until the act has little intrinsic meaning.
