Ok!!! I know that I am going to probably get flamed by what I am about to say, but i really think that it needs to be said. And maybe it has and everyone on this forum has brow beat them down into feeling so awful about themselves that they will be in despair for years.
Anyway, SEX yes I said that, SEX has THREE, mind you THREE purposes. Unification, Procreation, and yes I will say it Recreation. I know that amongst most on this forum that to even insinuate that sex be about fun and enjoyment by both parties involved is close to if not down right heresy. I do not understand why it is so evil for a married wife and husband to want to have sex just for the pure joy of having sex. To revel in the enjoyment, the passion, the arousal, the eroticism of two married people enjoying each others bodies to the maximum potential.
Our bodies, both male and female, were to design by God to respond to sexual stimuli in a positive and enjoyable manner. Denying that we can and should enjoy marital intercourse to me is just unfathomable. Sex IS pleasure, sex IS bonding, sex IS procreative. Why not embrace all of these factor instead of just bonding and procreative. If you believe that God invented sex, and that He also created the pleasurable aspects of it. Don’t you think that we should enjoy it as much as possible?
There have been many analogies to food and sex. That we eat for nutrition and to survive. That we should have sex to procreate and to bond ONLY. I for one eat from time to time just for the enjoyment of what I am eating. I am not overly indulging but rather savoring every bite and morsel of what has been prepared for me or what I have prepared myself. Am I sinning because I am only eating something because it tastes wonderful and I enjoy it? I don’t think so.
So what is wrong with enjoy the the sexual embrace (I HATE that term:mad:, it should be sexual intercourse or *******)?
Can’t I have sex with my wife just because we want to have a little fun and physical pleasure?
