Sounds of sex?
When first married, the couple living in the apt. above us would have loud sessions, mainly the woman expressing pleasure and encouraging her partner. I don’t recall it turning us on, maybe because we were already turned on most of the time already. The structure overall transmitted sounds readily. Based on the other non-sexual sounds, I deducted that they most likely had a large anvil collection and would move it around frequently with lots of drops. Maybe their fingers were still slippery from the loud sessions!
I think it would probably be like most things that aren’t specifically mentioned in the Bible: first, determine whether there is a principal given in the Bible that covers it. (For myself I don’t really think there is; at least not that comes readily to mind. If I had a notion to do this, I would have to do some study, to make sure.) Second, it would likely be a heart issue. Why is this something you want? Are you hoping to and predicting it will add to the intimacy and enjoyment of your special unique time together or are you just bored and looking for a quickie arousal aid? Or something else? Examine your motive before God and if it stands up, you probably can rest easy in his gift of playful sexuality with your spouse.
@ Earl that is an interesting idea to record our own sex sounds. I may try that 🙂 Just some background because I think someone asked: My husband & I have been married for 20 years. We do not have as much sex as we did when we were younger but now we are more adventurous.
Speaking from the male perspective, God clearly designed the most powerful sex organ in your body…. the brain. When you combine physical touch, with sexual sounds, smells and taste… you are fully engaged in love making. This is not to say that if you don’t include all of this in each love making session that you are not love making… just to say that each of these senses can play a role in increasing the pleasure you receive (and give) in a love making session with your spouse.
I feel strongly that the church and Christians have wrongly constrained enjoyment in the marriage bed to the missionary position (nothing wrong with that position just it is not the only one but instead one of thousands of ways to enjoy intimacy with your spouse as you enjoy what the Intimacy Buffer has to offer).
God has provided an entire Intimacy buffet of ways to enjoy love making with your spouse and yet many mainstream churchs/Christians have roped off most of it saying it is out of bounds.
Is it possible that the lack of pleasure which God intended for Christian couples is largely responsible for the high divorce rate in Christian marriages?
Is it possible that Christians have chosen to draw the line based on some notion of high society’s boundary rather than where God draws the line?
I think the position of Christians should be; if God didn’t forbid it… then it is on the Intimacy buffet should you and your spouse choose to partake.
