Intriguing article in Newsweek- What The Bible Really Says About Sex. Great Bible study!
I think god would want us to procreate.
Only under controlled circumstances and definitely not for fun if you believe the "official" authorities.
Thats an interesting article, yes. Although the part you quoted in your original post doesn't seem to get to the heart of the matter-- like sex without foreplay.
sensational media is sensational...
The article omits some important information: chapter and verse numbers for the quoted Bible-passages, the name of Bible translation she quoted from, and a citation for the Bible scholar's comments.
Bone it up people, thats what jesus would do.
Sonic the Hedgehog says: "Wait until marriage!"
Most every English translation I've seen does a terrible job of translating the raunchier parts of Song of Solomon. In one part, the man describes his mostly naked lover, working his way from her feet, all the way to her head. After her legs, it compares the next part of her body to a goblet, never lacking wine or juice. This part of her body typically gets translated as 'navel' in English. Seriously?! How many men would skip from the legs to the belly button? And how could a belly button ever be described that way? When I read that this was a mistranslation, the verse suddenly made a lot more sense!
There's lots of very debatable stuff in that article, but at least people are starting to get a bit more honest about the nature of this poem. Essentially, it's about love and sex — hot, passionate sex. And why not? God invented it!
sonic the hedgehog should go ahead and come out of the closet then.
King Solomon allegedly did enjoy the company of the lasses. The thing that scares me is what happens when all those women living together start to synchronize?
That's hot. Thanks, now I have to work with a boner.
Is that all you have to say?
Interesting article. There's lots of sex in the Bible if you look for it-
What do you think they mean by that? Lots of other examples to.
Thankfully, I don't follow the Bible's 'morality'!
Apparently the Bible can't speak for itself unless there are minders around to make sure we get the "correct" message.
Not the end result I was looking for, lol! You know what I think? The Bible was written men, men with sex drives.
Old men of the third age.

I've always lived my life believing the Bible was firmly in favor of it . . .
In some passage there are numerous opinions, even if it is infallible it needs an infallible interpreter
Mark Driscoll preached a really good series on this book of the bible, I believe he called it "The Peasent Princess." He even points out how the English translation tends to skip over the "naval" as someone else here did earlier. Anyways, check it out if your interested, I think you'll find him more open and direct then most pastors.
Good to know that God posts in PRSI.
I thought there was also a bit that said if your wife is barren, you can do it with her maid. Luckily my wife is not barren, as our maid is not that attractive.
I think she's from Alberta. All 250lbs of her.
Do you know what flour is used for? Don't answer that!!!
