God gives us very clear guidance in His Word on how we can best experience the gift of intimacy and love that He gave to us through sex.
If you are wondering what the Bible says about pre-marital sex or marital sex, use the verses below to study in context what God would have for you to learn.
Sex was meant as a wonderful experience between husband and wife to provide physical, emotional and spiritual bonding.
If you are feeling overwhelmed with a sexual sin remember that God promises to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).

Casual sex takes many forms. You know the obvious ones: the one-night stand, the booty call, sex by appointment.
More recent variations include "rec" (recreational) sex, which exists because, as one friend told me, "every great athlete needs practice."
And then there's "cereal" sex, which is a one-night stand amid a dry spell that, like cereal, is satisfying at the moment but leaves you needing further sustenance shortly thereafter.
1. Find porn you both like
Whether you’re already a seasoned expert with a curated collection of X-rated videos or you’re a curious novice, talking about porn with your partner can be both illuminating and a turn-on.
And if you don’t think you’d be into porn, don’t forget that there’s a lot of variety out there, so it may just be a matter of figuring out what works for you (and your partner if the two of you can get in sync).
Porn has come a long way in [terms of] diversity and quality over the past several years, and there is a vast variety available, ranging from hot and nasty all-action to full-blown cinematic films with pirate ships.
2. Work on fighting more fairly
The tip here is to develop strong conflict-resolution skills in order to keep the relationship strong and healthy and don't let conflict make sex a symptom.
3. Create a sex menu
When you’re in a long-term relationship, especially when you cohabitate, one of the most common texts you’ll shoot each other’s way is “What should we have for dinner?”
Each partner will write three sexual acts that they would like to do as an appetizer, three sexual acts that they would want as a main course, and three sexual acts that they would want as dessert.
Then the couple will read each other’s menus and negotiate a sex menu that they will engage in that night.
4. Trade off playing giver and receiver
If one of you is much more of a giver than the other and that’s worked for your relationship, awesome. But that doesn’t mean that switching up those roles every once in a while is a bad idea, especially if you make it a unique, erotic experience.
5. Try a new non-sexual hobby together
Even if you’re generally happy in your relationship, you might run into a period of time when you don’t feel as turned on or connected — and that’s very common and totally okay.
One way to reignite the spark is to do something nonsexual together that makes you feel more excited to jump back into bed when you’re done.
