Let's Talk About Sex

I have loved the dialogue these last few weeks, and would love to get your questions about a series I’m preparing for later in May called "XXX: God and Sex". 

What are your questions about sex?  What do you wonder about? What have you been afraid to ask anyone about?  I’m not going to specifically ‘answer’ them on the blog, but I’d love to ‘collect’ them as part of my prep for the series next month at Connexus.

I know this is a potentially embarrassing subject to even ask questions about, so if you want to change your user profile on the comments to "anonymous" or something, that’s fine.  Or maybe you just want to ask the questions your friends are asking.  I’m totally cool with all of that.

Ask away.  We want to make sure we’re actually answering the questions people are asking, so I’m totally listening. Be as bold and honest as you want to be.

    I think that society today almost expects that there will be some type of sexual activity before marriage. As a 30 something virgin it has been difficult to have and maintain a relationship with this boundary but it is something that I feel strongly about maintaining.

    just curious…sex before marriage…is it still wrong if you think you could see yourself marrying this person? because with most relationships nowadays it seems that it is a common understanding that there will be sex…or maybe i'm just finding myself in the wrong relationships.?

    The question that has come up quite a bit in conversations is about masterbation–is it a sin or is it preperation for marital intercourse? The Bible doesn't really talk about this one way or another.

    Why not ask that question of "how much can I play with fire?" That's probably the biggest question. My question however is "What is the definition of Marriage?". I realize that sex is supposed to happen inside a Marriage in order to glorify God but… what constitutes a Marriage these days. Is it that legal document that you both sign? or is it more of a mutual commitment to be exclusive to each other as life partners. I think that some common-law marriages are more committed than some documented marriages.So…at which point does it become a Marriage where sex would cease to be a sin and become glorifying to God?

    So… have you read Sex God by Rob Bell? Very interesting… intruiging… gets me thinking about sex/marriage in a whole new light! If you haven't, maybe think about reading it… plus, it's "all the rage" amoung many young adults I know!

    Some personal questions:

    "how far is too far?" It's been asked (and answered) a million times in a million different ways. The Bible say sexual expression is for marriage, right? But is kissing not a form of sexual expression? So then is kissing also meant to be saved for marriage. Seriously – ?

    This question is not asked in a 'how much can I play with fire' sense or a 'lets see how far we can push it sense' but seriously – ?

    What is glorifying to God in marriage? What is glorifying to God outside marriage? In both situations, what ISN'T glorifying to God?

    What IS sex?

    As long as you don't use that stupid feet sticking out of the bottom of the bed picture.
