From a metaphorical standpoint, the original sin could be lust/sex.

Eve states she was 'beguiled' by the 'serpent': ie, the woman was fascinated at first sight of an erect penis.

The serpent used Eve as a mitigator to 'get to' Adam: her curiousity and the resulting 'sexual exploration' led to Adam's 'tasting the fruit of the tree' (knowledge of sexual interaction/lust).

It was never specifically discussed in my family when I was growing up, but sex-for-pleasure or unwed sex, or lust, was always implied as 'the original sin'.

Just my 2 cents ....
