Let’s Talk About Sex

My friend use to say she could have sex with different men without becoming emotionally attached. Think about it. She could experience all the sexual pleasure she wanted without ever getting her feelings hurt. In her own way she created an emotionally safe way to do something inherently dangerous.

Have you ever taken the time to think about the idea of “safe sex?” When this idea is applied to sex outside of a faithful marital relationship, it usually means taking precautionary measures to protect against anticipated consequences. The people that taught us that term made us think they had covered all of the bases. Sex outside of marriage would no longer be “unsafe.”

Hard reality—sex comes with rules that do not change. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 6:18, “Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.” Sex outside of marriage does not please God and will never be safe. We may try to negate the consequences sex has on the outside but nobody can change the consequences imposed by God.

That means, we could have sex without getting a disease, getting pregnant or getting caught but we would still be doing damage to ourselves. Take for instance my friend who never stopped to think beyond the pleasure of her actions. In the end, the ultimate threat did not come from the potential of an external predator but she was her own worst enemy.
