According to Nazi ideology, sexuality should function to produce children to make the German “national community” grow larger and stronger. The Nazi regime treated sexual activity that did not produce children as a threat to the nation. Authorities tried to repress sexual desires that did not conform to Nazi goals—this included same-sex relationships. At the same time, Nazi policies also upended social traditions and provided new opportunities for sexual contact and exploration.
