According to Nazi ideology, sexuality should function to produce children to make the “German racial community” grow larger and stronger. The regime persecuted those who engaged in sexual activity that did not produce children as a threat to the German nation. Authorities tried to repress sexual desires that did not conform to Nazi goals. At the same time, Nazi policies also upended social traditions and provided new opportunities for sexual contact and exploration.
