    Is there anything in the Bible that teaches sex is for enjoyment?”

      Well, the answer is yes.  But your question is odd at best.  It is like asking if the Bible says anything about the need to see a dentist.  Or, does the Bible say anything about the need to take a vacation and say go to Disneyland.  Are all things invalid if not specifically, categorically, mentioned in the Word of God?  1 Cor. 7:3-5 talks about the human sexual need and the obligation of the spouse to satisfy that need.  The specific need is not identified but can be safely assumed to be inclusive of procreation and recreation.  Yes, the Bible is an advocate of marital sexual pleasure – its pursuit, its conquest and its glory as all subject to the Glory of God.

        Proverbs 5:19 kind of teaches that.

          I am sure Song of Solomon has something in it….otherwise why do kids read it during church? 😉

          Yes, but while SOS talks about sex, it does not teach about sex.  It is not clear what the purpose of SOS is.  In the big picture, it is a fantasy of an already married man about a young virgin.  This man is eventually led away from God by women.  How do we know it is not a cautionary tale?

            I think of 1 Tim. 6:17 where we are told that  God richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment! Sex is also something that God has provided – albeit within the confines of a marriage covenant.

              I grew up never hearing about sex at all, only that you weren’t supposed to do it until you got married. So for years and years you get told that sex is bad and then all of a sudden one day it’s supposed to be the greatest thing ever.
              That didn’t sit well with me and I’m sure I’m not alone.
