I. INTRODUCTION

Sexual attraction stimulates all five senses; what we touch, smell, hear, and see. Sex is a wonderful when it is preformed the correct way. God designed it to be enjoyed by a man and a woman. As it relates to other industry platforms, the sex industry is big business, $57 billion worldwide, and $12+ billion in the United States. It is larger than all the sport franchises put together. It’s bigger than all top technology companies combined. Apple made 65 billion in sales in 2010. Microsoft made 62 billion, and Google profit 29 billion dollars. Bigger than top television broadcasting channels combined Comcast (NBC) had revenues of almost 38 billion Disney (ABC) and revenues of 38 billion. These numbers are staggering; first, it suggests that sex is for sale; secondly, we are having lots of it outside of God’s intended purpose.

Therefore God has a set of standards we must follow to control the beast inside of us. It involves principles that we must live and apply to our lives to enjoy full sexual pleasure that pleases our Father. Perhaps, this paper could explain what the Bible teaches about sex. Using the book of Proverbs and Song of Solomon we would include topics such as, courtship, adultery, homosexuality, pornography, where to draw the line on physical affection in pre-marital, dating, and masturbation. Once we have assessed the Bible’s view of sexual purity. I will provide a plan on how I intend to maintain sexual purity in my current state.

II. SEX OUTSIDE MARRIAGE

A. COURTSHIP

There are different terms in the Bible that describe pre-marital sex . Fornication is sexual intercourse between a man and women who are not married to each other.” Another way that pre-marital is described in the Bible is the word “adultery” or “lewdness.” Generally people who participate in pre-marital sex are referred to as, “whoremongers” or “whores. Courtship in the Song of Solomon express that sexual desire must be handled with great restraint when exercised by the lovers until after the wedding processional (Songs of Solomon 3:6-11) . Tommy Nelson shares, “young Jewish boys’ were not permitted to read the Songs of Solomon because the book was believed to sir strong sexual passion. The book is erotic and intoxicating in its reference . You must possess restraint to keep you within the boundaries. ” Sex after vows is the plan of God.

Those that are dating must draw the line. Choose to live inside the relationship according to God’s plan rather than your hormones (Songs of Solomon 1:4). When the beloved spoke of his love she was referring to the physical expressions of love. The Hebrew word for love is “dodim”, the statement “your love is more delightful more than wine, “means that his physical features was attractive. Her pleasing aroma of his perfumes made him even more attracted to her. Comparing perfume meant that his character was pleasing and attractive to the beloved. The Bible views it is to God’s desire to feel intimacy with our mates. However, one must draw the line because; our greatest desires should be to please God. Show restrain until you’re married.
