• Oral Sex

    During the years I was in full time pastoral ministry the one intimate thing about which I received the most inquiry was oral sex. Not masturbation, pornography, fornication, or adultery, and there was no hint of today’s controversies over homosexuality. No, the issue over which most were troubled was oral sex. Was it true that it is an evil perversion as some old-time Pentecostal preacher was declaring or was it actually ok in the eyes of God?

    When I counseled with
    the men of my congregation
    and shared what the Bible says
    about the blessing of oral-genital contact,
    the truth was met with much relief, and joy.

    There are those who believe that the only appropriate place into which a man can ejaculate is his wife’s vagina. While I disagree, I honor those whose desire to have a sanctified sex life leads them to this conclusion. But I do disagree. I see no such prohibition in either the Word of God, or logic.

    More serious though is the teaching that any and all oral-genital contact is sinful, sordid, and leads to serious spiritual defilement. This is a belief for which I hold no respect, and with which I fervently disagree. I condemn it as a prohibition not just absent from the Word of God, but as openly contradictory to the Scriptures. It is seriously misguided to say something is unbiblical and sinful when the Bible in the Song of Solomon clearly contains vivid examples of the same!

    Delighted Husbands, Grateful Wives

    When I counseled with the men of my congregation and shared what the Bible says about the blessing of oral-genital contact, the truth was met with much relief, and joy. I became their friend for life! They rejoiced that they now felt free to both give and receive such sublime pleasure and to, at the very least, make it a part of their pre-coital foreplay. Their wives were delighted as well!

    Surprisingly, since those days I have encountered Inner Healing ministries outside of classical Pentecostalism which one way or another teach against the practice. I found this such an odd and curious thing that some years ago I made direct inquiry of several of them. After examining reading their responses and further examining their materials, I found both their teaching and their prayer practice concerning oral sex to be wanting in both logic and Biblical foundation. You can come to your own conclusions.

    Only with fear and trembling should teachers and preachers of the Word of God offer advice on what a Christian couple enjoys in the sacred Holy of Holies of the marital bedroom. Especially if that advice is prohibitive.
