When I first heard this query...my heart leapt when I heard the words "In a loving adult relationship in a context of mutual responsibility, sexuality brings delight, fulfillment and celebration." Yes, my heart said. That is right. Delight. Fulfillment. Celebration. And I added in my mind: Joy.

"I find that these queries offer a contrast between my experience as a Quaker and my experience as a Latter-day Saint."

That is interesting, Jana, because as I was reading through this advice and query, I was thinking how much it reminded me of a good Relief Society discussion! I think most good and godly worship experiences follow this pattern, whatever the religious setting.
