Are you wondering can Christians have oral sex? Some people think oral sex within marriage is a sin, when the truth is nothing in the Bible says it’s a sin or leads us to believe it’s a sin.
1 Corinthians 7:3-5 “The husband should fulfill his wife’s sexual needs, and the wife should fulfill her husband’s needs. The wife gives authority over her body to her husband, and the husband gives authority over his body to his wife. Do not deprive each other of sexual relations, unless you both agree to refrain from sexual intimacy for a limited time so you can give yourselves more completely to prayer. Afterward, you should come together again so that Satan won’t be able to tempt you because of your lack of self-control.”
You both must share your feelings on this matter. Obviously you have to have respect for one another. You can’t pressure someone to do something that they don’t want to do, but as long as you’re both OK with it oral sex is perfectly fine.
Song Of Solomon
Song of Solomon was a love poem between a husband and his wife and it was very steamy.
Song of Solomon 8:1-2 “O that thou wert as my brother, that sucked the breasts of my mother! when I should find thee without, I would kiss thee; yea, I should not be despised. 2 I would lead thee, and bring thee into my mother’s house, who would instruct me: I would cause thee to drink of spiced wine of the juice of my pomegranate.”
Song of Solomon 2:2-3 “Like a lily among the thorns, so is my darling among the maidens. 3 Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest, so is my beloved among the young men. I delight to sit in his shade, and his fruit is sweet to my taste.”
Song of Solomon 4:15-16 “You are a garden spring, a well of fresh water, streams flowing from Lebanon. Awake, north wind, and come, south wind. 16 Make my garden breathe out, let its fragrance flow. Let my beloved come into his garden, and let him eat its choicest fruits.”
Through the metaphors you can see it was more than just regular sex. So is oral sex within marriage a sin? No it isn’t, but it should be discussed. If no one feels condemned and you both agree on it, then oral sex is OK.
Is oral sex a sin before marriage?
Yes, we must not perform oral with our boyfriends and girlfriends outside of marriage as a way to satisfy our sexual desires.
Hebrews 13:4 “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.”
1 Corinthians 6:18 “Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body.”
Galatians 5:19-20 “When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.”
