I love God’s Design of Sex
“…male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number, fill the earth and subdue it,’……God saw all that he had made and it was very good…” Genesis 1:27-31.
Everything else was just good, until male and female and fruitfulness were called extraordinarily good.
Now, if you hop on over to the Song of Solomon, you’ll see lots of sexual imagery without any mention of being fruitful. This couple enjoys sexual intimacy in multiple occasions and in different ways. So, this makes me think that sex isn’t confined to just fruitfulness but is for physical and emotional bliss, as well. (Oh, those pomegranates!)
The female clitoris is a highly sensitive structure involved in orgasm. It’s only function is to create pleasure. It is a much larger and more complicated internally than the little visible hot spot. (See, The Exquisite Clitoris, for an in-depth look at this fascinating creation.)
Why would God create the clitoris to have no other function than to be a luscious little button? Because sex is supposed to feel great for the wife, too. (See, A Window Into O’s, if it’s not feeling great for you.)
“This is why a man leaves his father and mother and bonds with his wife, and they will become one flesh,” Genesis 2:24 (Holman Christian Standard Bible).
….and they will become one flesh.
As a new bride, I couldn’t wait to be immersed into my husband’s life. I didn’t fully realize that when we marry we bind together the physical and the spiritual. We marry what we see and what we don’t see. Therefore the visceral experience of sexual union makes us physically one flesh and also represents the spiritual oneness we now have in God’s eyes.
Marriages continue to build ‘oneness’ for the rest of their lives. Building ‘oneness’ emotionally involves discovering lots of hidden darkness. That’s where the light of sexual intimacy burns away the impurities and softens the rough edges of a life together that can sometimes be hard.
It wasn’t until after we had reached a point of consistent sexual intimacy that I saw the spiritual balm of sexual intimacy seep down into our emotional connection.
I love God’s design of sexual intimacy because it is physically pleasing, spiritually unifying, and softens hearts.
