Christians say, "I thought the Bible said anal sex was a sin."

This is a common misconception. Anal sex is confusing to many Christians because of the attention paid to the Bibleís condemnation of homosexual acts. However, itís important to realize that these often quoted scriptures refer only to sexual acts between two men. Nowhere does the Bible forbid anal sex between a male and female.

In fact, many Biblical passages allude to the act of anal sex between men and women. Lamentations 2:10 describes how "The virgins of Jerusalem have bowed their heads to the ground," indicating how a virginal maidens should position themselves to receive anal sex. Another suggestive scripture tells of a womanís pride in her "valley" (referring to her buttocks and the cleft between them) and entices her lover to ejaculate against her backside: "How boastful you are about the valleys! O backsliding daughter who trusts in her treasures,{saying,}' Who will come against me?'" (Jeremiah 49:4)

And in the Song of Songs, the lover urges his mate to allow him to enter her from behind: "Draw me after you, let us make haste." (Song of Solomon, 1:4)

Christians ask, "Isnít anal sex dirty?"

The Bible says, "To the pure, all things are pure." (Titus 1:15) The Lord created your body, and no part of it is imperfect or unclean. God also created our bodies for pleasure, and anal sex is just one of the many ways, including standard sexual intercourse, that we can enjoy this pleasure and share it with a partner.

Although the anus is used for elimination, in reality it is not as dirty as you think, especially after a shower or bath. Elimination is also a natural process of our God-given bodies, so our conception of the anal area as dirty has more to do with our own psychological hang-ups. If the idea of direct contact with this area is still distasteful to you, the male can wear a condom as a barrier.

Christians ask, "If youíre going to have anal sex, why not just have regular sex?"

If youíre going to have sexual contact before marriage, why not just go the whole nine yards and have regular sex? There are many good reasons for having anal sex instead. The first reason is practical: having conventional vaginal intercourse can lead to unwanted pregnancies. While itís true that the Lord bade us to "be fruitful and multiply," (Gen 1:22) the Bible also counsels that "For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven." (Ecclesiastes. 3:1) Pregnancy outside of wedlock can have dire and life-altering consequences for all those involved. Having anal sex allows you to greatly reduce this risk.

Second, for a young woman who has never engaged in sexual intercourse, having anal sex allows her to preserve her virginity (i.e., maintain an intact hymen) until marriage. There is no greater gift that a bride can give than to offer her pure, unsullied maidenhead to her husband on their wedding night.

Finally, anal sex allows both partners to save the most intimate and powerful sexual act, that of face-to-face vaginal intercourse, for their mates in marriage. This type of sexual relationship represents the most powerful union between a man and a woman, and so it rightfully should be reserved for oneís life partner. Fortunately, you can engage in anal sex prior to marriage and still be able to share the deeper, more meaningful act of consecrated love through vaginal intercourse with your wedded spouse.

It is my understanding that any sex act where the possabity of makeing a baby is removed or even lowered with say a condom is bad in the eyes of god.

I don't understand gods problem with condoms.He can make the whole of the universe in six 24 hour long days but can't put a hole in a condom if he wanted a sex act to produce a baby.

..... There are all sorts of speculations and fiction stories about God and/or any other spirits. Treat them just like any other stories in fiction books.

..... Never mind what it says about this in the bible. Any sex involving 2 or more people can be very dangerous to the health of those concerned, and therefore various preventive measures to limit, even if possible eradicate, diseases are recommended, and possibly also legislated, in some countries.

yah ,as u have mentioned the benefits of anal sex, esp unwanted pregnancies could be eliminated, and at times due 2 our personal limitations and in my case due my personal problems i kept delaying my marriage, and so i had no option but 2 engage in sex ,as i cannot keep on abstaining from it ,as i not have any other option i feel sex out side marriage esp anal sex , should not be concedered a sin , and its upto me 2 decide , rather than on some one else .

According to the bible anal and oral sex is a sin.....if people know whats good for them here they would stop posting that its ok to do cause I protest against the lies that its perfectly normal. God goes against it! The natural use of the woman man left it says in Romans 1. The natural use is not butt ring sex nor oral dangit. If this crap was ok to do then why are so many people recieving the penalty for it? Which is the same as curses for disobedience laid out in Deut.28. The bible says you sin against your own body you are going to get it. Anal sex is also consider abuse.

Let me further elaborate on the recompence for your error spoken of in Romans 1:27. Everyone that freely and continually has butt sex and oral, married or not will recieve or better put reap what you sow, and since you are sowing to the flesh (sexual immorality) you will of the flesh reap corruption. Simply put you are going to get jacked up health wise some kinda way. Std's, or some kinda ailment....I don't believe there is one person,porn star,homosexual ect that can honestly say or participate and engage in oral & anal sex and come out ailment free.

Um, the question here with you being a man is are you the reciever or the giver? And its real easy to voice over the net that you have a clean bill of health, nobody sees you or truly knows your health issues. But just like that old motto>''You do the crime,you will do the time'' you have an earthly judge that will render your just dues, as well as a heavenly Father that will do the same. We may not like that but neither judge truly cares whether or not that we do. You best to obey the laws given.

Oral sex with my wife is not a crime where I come from, whether given or received.

Um....dude, it may be legal according to the laws of this earth but it ain't in the eyes of God. But yea, yea...you don't believe in God as you have said, regardless though your dis-belief does not stop his judgement upon you for going against the grain. Married or not you are defiling your body which is a violation! Go on about your narrow minded hard-headed business. smh

No need to to single out my behavior as narrow minded hard headed business. I am sure there are bigger issues in the world more worthy of attention than a couple engaging in a perfectly natural act.

Have a nice weekend.

You come from the school of hard knocks thats what your problem is....most likely you have recieved these unlawful sex acts so much that you are bent on them,it has become the norm for you, but you or nobody else for that matter can't keep ingesting bacteria and all the other organism recieved from oral and anal sex and suffer no illness....its just logical as well as actual+factual.

Um, thank u...your purpose seemingly on this christian forum is to remain in opposition and battle against God and His word, I say right you say wrong and you want to convince me that its perfectly ok. Maybe you just started out in your immoral practices whatever the case may be your arms are too short to box with God.

If someone wants to save themselves for marriage, they need to abstain from anal, oral, or any type of sex. One gentleman that I know was taught that if a bathing suit covers it, you don't touch it until you are married to that person. Any of that out of marriage is impure.

God ordained sex between a man and a woman, in marriage only of course. But He did not ordain no oral and anal....to.be.frank.here these two sex acts are nothing but demonic,demon inspired devil ordain and ecetera. Those that choose to practice it whether professing to be christian or not....yous basically damning yourselves and partners soul to Hell.
