What does the Bible say regarding sex?
The couple is addressing questions on sex in a newly released video series that is intended to encourage married couples, especially those of the Christian faith, to have great sex. It's God's way of keeping intimacy and romance in a marriage," Craig Gross, who is known for handing out Bibles at porn shows, said in a released statement. Among the questions that the Grosses and another couple address include: Are sex toys, lingerie and sexting okay for Christians? How do we know what we can or can't do? What if my spouse does not want to have sex? When deciding on sex toys or "extras" such as lubricants and lingerie for the marriage bedroom, Gross recommends that spouses play to each other's personality rather than blindly taking someone else's advice. As for sexting and sending sexually explicit photos, Dave Willis, a pastor and founder of StrongerMarriages. Both Willis and his wife, Ashley, are more cautious when it comes to photos "sexy selfies" and videos but are open to sending flirtatious texts to each other. I think there's things that we can do throughout the day through texting, through notes, phone calls, just to let them know you're on my mind, I want you, I desire you. I think there's nothing wrong with that and that's healthy," Ashley says.
Does the Bible address these specific issues?
Should Christians use sex toys? The question came to me from a reader who is unsure of how to feel about the use of sex toys between married couples. This is another topic often skirted past by women's ministry leaders, pastors, and bloggers but it is a valid and important question to explore.
Is it okay to use marital aids such as dildos or vibrators with your spouse if both are in agreement? The Bible does not speak against it, but they also can be used for evil. We want to know boundaries and we also want to honor the Lord. The Bible does not say anything about married couples using sex toys such as dildos or vibrators. Yet, there are biblical principles that help us to understand that it is best to avoid them.
