The Sin of Adam and Eve According to John of Damascus
According to John of Damascus, writing in the eighth century:

Adam and Eve were created sexless; their sin in Eden led to the horrors of
sexual reproduction. If only our earliest progenitors had obeyed God, we would be procreating less sinfully now
(although he didn't specify exactly how man would procreate if Adam and Eve had not sinned).
