As you said, her talk about "immoral" stems from her religious beliefs. Right?
Are you religious as well?
I suppose I'm something like a naturalistic buddhist. In my view, there is no God up in the sky looking down and frowning on us because we like to relish in intimacy and sexual pleasure. Perhaps you could ask her questions about her religious views around sexuality which might help her reconsider some of them? Maybe ask her if God dislikes sexual pleasure. If He does, well, you could ask why God then made us so dang horny/sexy to begin with. Stuff like that.
One often can't reason at all with people who adhere to strong religious convictions. >sigh<
