Weird sexual attractions.

So, what do you think of people attracted to things very abnormal, some of which may even seem evil, but which the Bible is silent on.

For example, let us say someone is sexually attracted to balls... I do mean sport balls, like soccer balls, base balls, ect.

Or chairs? Or sound? You know, the freakishly weird stuff which until you see it you wouldn't believe a person could be sexually attracted to it.

Is it wrong? Is it part of God's plan? Should they be allowed to 'have sex' with said things? Should they 'marry' said things first. Or does this all fall under sexual perversions? And if it does, what about a tad bit more normal things, S/M, foot fetish, ect.? Are those a sexual perversion? Where do you draw a line at? Just asking.

Is it wrong?
Yes.

Is it part of God's plan?
Everything is part of God's plan.

Should they be allowed to 'have sex' with said things?
No.

Should they 'marry' said things first.
No, that would be silly.

Or does this all fall under sexual perversions?
Yes.

And if it does, what about a tad bit more normal things, S/M, foot fetish, ect.? Are those a sexual perversion?
If those things are done with your married partner they are fine; they are part a normal sexual relationship.

Where do you draw a line at? Just asking.
At the Biblical foundation for the function and purpose of marriage.

So, what happens with both the man and woman (married) are into something weird (let us use chairs), and as such they add a chair into the mix? Is that adultery? And if so, what about sex toys?

And is having sex with a chair actually having sex, or just masturbating?

Having sex with a chair is masturbating, a chair does not have feelings or sexual organs or a life or anything making it a partner capable of having sex with you or with another chair. All it would really be is a sex toy, there is only one person involved in the act.

A married couple using sex toys on eachother is the same as masturbating eachother which again is a common thing to do in a sexual relationship and okay as ong as you're married.

Masturbation by oneself (with or without sex toys) is a sin if you're unmarried and/or thinking of someone who is not your spouse. However, personally (and some may disagree with me on this) I believe it to be okay if you are thinking about your spouse.

I have heard that it isn't a sin if you aren't thinking about anyone, so if your attracted to the chair, and thus are thinking about he chair (and in the case of the man and woman, they are thinking about the chair, not each others), would you consider it a sin because the chair isn't their husband/wife, or not a sin because the chair is only an object.

It's a sin not becasue of the thoughts but because it is self-gratification.

Well, I think it's no sin in it self to be attracted to random physical object, and as long as it is witin a marriage I can't see anything wrong with a couple having a chair in the bed as long as this is something that make them happy, but i certainly can't see how this is something christians should want to do either.

But my eating lunch is self-gratification. Is it a sin too? Or is it only sexual self-gratification that counts?
