    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.
     
  2. Yes.

    Everything is part of God's plan.

    No.

    No, that would be silly.

    Yes.

    If those things are done with your married partner they are fine; they are part a normal sexual relationship.

    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?
     
  4. 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?

    Yes, sexual self-gratification. Eating lunch serves a very good purpose, namely keeping you alive. Gratifying ourselves sexually through masturbation is sin.

    But lunch doesn't keep me alive. I could easily survive off of breakfast and supper. I had to for a number of weeks at college, had too many noon classes.
     
  14. lol, I think when someone refers to their car as "sexy" that is a figure of speech :p
     
  15. But eating three meals a day is more healthy - and living a healthy lifestyle is part of being good stewards of the bodies God gave us.

    I'm talking about someone who went and actually had sex with them. He calls one his wife, though he has about 1000 'partners' throughout his years.

    Is it. How do you know 2 or 4 aren't healthier? Do you have any evidence?
     
  18. Well if we're going to talk about that subject; 4 is actually healthier than 3, and 5 is healthier than 4... in fact most scientific research done on the topic indicates it is healthiest to eat around 5-6 small meals a day, to keep your metabolism up and keep your body in an anabolic (tissue building) state... this is agreed upon almost unaminously by dietitians...

    Granted, but that simply sidesteps the point that the intake of food is necessary to life. However, if you want to travel down that road, then yes self-gratification with food is also sinful. We must eat food with thanksgiving to God. Getting our pleasure from the food, and not Him who provided the food is wrong.

    Sexual gratification was only ever meant for marriage. To have sexual gratification by yourself, from an object or outside of marriage is sinful.
     
  20. Good point, and that is also what leads to gluttony, another sin.
