I am just curious to see how the sex lives of the many Christians out here are fulfilling and satisfying, not just physically, but emotionally. Is there anything "off-limits" so to speak? And primarily this is to married couples, as singles really should not be having sex yet.

Bible research shows us little, except to say that we should always "give in" to our spouses needs. I thought about this after Dr Ed Young told his congregation to have sex for 7 straight days. I wondered why, and then decided to write this, to see why.


since I had made the comment on another post about sharing themselves first:

My sex life is fantastic. Really not too much is off limits, but that isn't to say there is much that hasn't been explored. Before, when I was still in a "carnal" state, I had my try-outs, so to speak, and some of the woman I had met were quite boring. Missionary, and THAT IS IT. If you know what I mean. "Are you done yet", was the feeling I got. Sometimes it felt like pity. But having been married now for 19 years, my wife is the absolute best. I know God has put us together, even though my views on religion and such get me a blank look sometimes.

I could always wonder though, sometimes, as those women who don't have much drive for these things, about how they would or even could keep their husbands satisfied. And not just physically, but emotionally.

We hit a low point in our relationship many years ago, concerning this very topic. We almost didn't make it. But we compromised, talked, and found out what our "lacking" was from each other, and to my surprise, 19 years later, our desire for each other remains "soul" strong.

Sorry if this is too personal for some of you, but hey,,,we are on the forums, and we ARE Christians!

the bedroom is UNDEFILED because God believes in Man/Woman being Married so they wont be fornicating or committing adultery.

From my experience in churches and among fellow Christians, I would say that overall I think Christians tend to have a less fulfilling, less satisfying sex life than their non-Christian neighbors.

My married sex life was great thank you (not married anymore). Our pastor used to preach, "The married bed is undefiled." Make of it what you will.

LOL Oh ye of little faith. Having been a non-Christian until I was 30, I can say without hesitation that that may be true for you but for me, nothing could be further from the truth--just the opposite as a matter of fact. Sex before Christianity for me was empty, unfulfilling and left me feeling rather tense about sex. My husband said the same thing. Not all men like meaningless, empty sex, thank God.

I think the sex lives of Christians should remain private

I am not sure what faith has to do with this topic.

I was speaking of my observations from years of being active in the church and couples counseling.

That's true enough. I didn't plan on saying anymore, I promise.
