8 Bible Verses About Sex


When people think of a timeless book that holds the keys to great sex, their first thought might be the Kama Sutra, but I’d argue a better choice would actually be the Bible. Perhaps it surprises you to think of the Bible as a practical manual for your sex life, but I’m convinced its the most important resource at your disposal to help you have a healthy sex life (and every other part of your life as well). So why not check out some Bible verses about sex?

God created sex. He created love. He created life.

He created YOU and He has a beautiful plan for your life. Regardless of your faith (or lack of faith), I’d encourage to to explore God’s plan for sex, because the world’s plan for sex is creating a culture of heartbreak, objectifying women, broken marriages, pain and regret. God’s plan is MUCH better.

Bible Verses About Sex

Here are eight Bible verses about sex with some steamy and surprising truths (in no particular order)…

1. “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.” 1 Corinthians 7:3-4

Both the husband and the wife should make sexual intimacy and fulfillment a high priority in the marriage and each spouse should put the other spouse’s needs ahead of his/her own needs. This mutual selflessness is the key to a great sex life, but it’s also the key to a great marriage outside the bedroom.

#2 of our Bible verses about sex comes from a book in the Bible that is so erotic, it used to be illegal in some parts of the world to read it...

2. “Kiss me and kiss me again, for your love is sweeter than wine.” Song of Solomon 1:2

Somewhere along the line, people started believing the myth that God doesn’t like sex or He doesn’t want us to enjoy sex. Nothing could be further form the truth! Sex is a powerful gift and when enjoyed within a committed marriage, it can can should be passionate and pleasurable. Just read the book of “Song of Solomon” in the Bible, which is essentially erotic love poetry. God wants us to have this kind of passionate, playful intimacy within marriage.

#3 paints the first picture of sex and marriage in the Bible

3. “Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame.” Genesis 2:25

The first picture of sex and marriage the Bible paints for us tells us that the couple was naked but felt no shame. This is a beautiful image of the vulnerability, trust, honesty, transparency and intimacy that should create a healthy foundation for every marriage. God wants a husband and wife to be “naked” physically, spiritually and emotionally with one another. When you have a “naked marriage” with no secrets and total vulnerability, you can experience perfect intimacy without shame or fear.
