Pre-Marital Sex Article Comments

The following e-mails I have been receiving in 2001 commenting on the article Is Pre-Marital Sex Always A Sin? The e-mailers' comments are in black and enclosed in greater than and lesser than signs. My responses are in red.

>Dear Sir,

This site has helped me in planning to minister to the youth on Pre-Marital sex. I feel these things are important and should not be compromised. God's word should never be compromised.

Thank you again and God bless you.


In one of your articles you mentioned certain body parts that are inherently sexual, the pelvic regions on both genders, as well as the female breast. Are there any principles on the male breast since it has some such feelings (even if it is not nearly as much as that of the female).<

In our culture and in the Bible, the male breast does not have the same sexual connotations as the female breast does (Prov 5:18,19). But you are correct, that stimulating the male breast, especially the nipples can be sexually stimulating. And I would say, that if being touched on the breasts or anywhere else causes problems for a guy, then he should tell the person he is with to not touch him there. It's just a matter of avoiding temptation, not that it would be sinful in and of itself.

> especially in regards to unwanted touching there?


Unwanted touching anywhere on the body is always wrong. "No" applies to anything someone does not want. If the person someone is with doesn't respect this, it would be best to stay away from that person. If someone doesn't respect such boundaries, then there's sure to be other problems down the road.
