“Too many Christian women are losing their salvation because they masturbate. Dildos and all of those other sex toys have been used for thousands of years in demonic sex rituals. It’s one of the main ways ancient pagan societies worshiped their demonic gods.
Masturbation is a direct path to Satan. There’s nothing normal about it. And shame on any Christian that says so.” (Read more here)
Dear Eden Decoded,
First of all, I must compliment you on your choice of photography to accompany your Facebook post. Did you download that picture from a photo stock website, or did you photograph it in person? If the latter, please let me know where I can find this magic garden of penises, because it looks downright enchanting.
Now, on to the content of your actual post. First of all, I am not aware of any Bible verse that says “Thou shalt not use sex toys.” Is this PSA for single or married women (and why did you only address it to women, anyway? Did you mean to imply that male masturbation is totes okay with God?)? You didn’t specify, so I’m going to assume you’re addressing both demographics. But what if a husband and wife engage in this practice because it’s the only way the wife gets any enjoyment out of sex? Asking for a friend.
My guess, however, is that you’re not all that concerned about what the woman feels during sex. Maybe you think that sex for pleasure and not procreation is a sin as well (in which case, you’re gonna be really shocked by the Song of Songs in the Old Testament). The thing is, ED, that sex SHOULD be an act of bonding and intimacy for married couples. You may or may not be aware that sex, for many women, is a highly unpleasant experience. Not all women are able to orgasm via intercourse, and no matter how much lubricant is used, it can still feel like attempting to slide down a water slide without water. Hence why sex toys can be, er, helpful.
Is this too graphic for you? Sorry, but Christians aren’t doing anyone any favors by not discussing the reality of sex: it’s a bone of contention (snicker, snicker) for many couples when they find out that abstinence until the wedding night doesn’t guarantee fireworks. Couples who are not advised to communicate and experiment in the bedroom will have problems. Maybe in your world, abstinence is all it takes to have magic sex, but reality disagrees with that notion. Therefore, I have to assume you are male, because honestly? Lack of sensitivity for women who find intercourse painful or unpleasant is such a typical man thing.
Many people, Christian and otherwise, would call that “sexist.” And I must inform you, ED, that sexism is probably a much more direct path to satan than couples using sex toys.
A sex-positive, married Christian
