I often hear among younger, apparently fromm men the aphorism "[gentile women]1 are for [sexual] practice". This has always struck me as bizarre, due to the importance of the reproductive act for its explicit purpose. Does anyone actually weigh in as to whether this is as problematic as it seems?

1 The actual quote I've heard uses a derogatory term here.

    Is your question "Is sex with a gentile prohibited?" or "How prohibited is sex with a gentile?" or something else? – Double AA Jun 8 '14 at 4:48

    Effectively, I'm asking about the halachic/hashkafic stance regarding both whether sex with non-Jews is prohibited and the laissez-faire attitude associated with this. – Noach MiFrankfurt Jun 8 '14 at 14:33

    I find it odd that you "often hear" this, considering that I've never heard this. If you really hear this often, I suggest that you stop associating with slimy reprobates in the future regardless of whether they masquerade as religious. – Fred Jun 10 '14 at 20:19

The Rambam in Hilchos Issurei Biah 12:6 holds there is an issue kares,see the chapter in detail. See also the Shulchan Aruch Even Haezer 16 with the meforshim who hold its not only a Rabbinic prohibition but rather a Torah prohibition.

The saying is just an immature attitude of relationships on a whole and is entirely prohibited.
