What the Bible Really Says About Sex . . . Really?
Uh, it’s a good thing and should be done in a moral/ethical fashion.
So that you don’t ever feel ashamed of how you treat the person willing
Actually, I was a bit shocked when hearing a reading from (IIRC) proceedings
from a Puritan church proceedings when a husband was being chastized for
not have “intimate relations” with his spouse as often as she desired.
And I grew up thinking Puritans were a bunch of prudes?
Maybe no subculture in history has been more misunderstood than the Puritans. They were a life-loving, exuberant people who believed that God gave life to be enjoyed. They tended to wear colorful clothing, had some of the most well-stocked wine cellars anywhere, and knew how to get busy in the sack.
Most of the stuff people think they about the Puritans is wrong, or a stereotype. Ditto, our grandparents, who were people who kept things to themselves. The Puritans were a passionate race, passionately concerned about the states of their souls, and by our standards narrowly but deep in their appreciation of things. Still water runs deep.
