“Sex is only dirty when done right.” I’m not sure who I originally heard that from but I completely agree.
For all my married friends, this is for you. My friend Jake Kampe wrote an honest and raw post about sex this week. He’s someone who I can respect for living in the gray area of life and speaking about things that are usually uncomfortable or taboo to most people.
He asks some great questions like:
Does the Church inadvertently create an atmosphere of fear, embarrassment or even shame when it comes to sex?
Should we be more open and willing to talk about the “details”, no matter how graphic in nature they might be?
How do newly married couples know what is acceptable and what’s not if we aren’t willing to discuss it?
Jake says it’s vital that we provide strong Biblical advice on sexual boundaries for two reasons: First, married couples need to know what’s off limits so they don’t venture off into some freaky stuff that would cause Hugh Hefner to blush. And secondly, married couples need to know what’s within acceptable limits so they can venture off into some freaky stuff that God is totally OK with! And they don’t need to feel guilty, strange or perverted.
If you’re interested in hearing his thoughts on oral sex, boundaries and Biblical perspectives on sex I encourage you to read his blog.
