  • I'm sure if the wife or husband is ill or very tired or has something emotionally or physically wrong with them, then it is okay to do just that!

  • First, I couldn't care less about the bible. 


    Secondly, I have never and will never withhold sex from my husband because I would never use our most intimate bond as a weapon.

  • Christian or not you should never use sex as a weapon which is what you are doing if you get mad and cut each other off.

  • I am Christian, (and I'm sure many Christians and non-Christians withhold sex), but I don't for the same reasons Beeky stated.
    I hate it when women complain and say "I hate sex/ never want to have sex and my husband is getting angry because he wants some. He is being so selfish!"
    Personally I think you are being selfish if you deprive your spouse of sex then complain because they want some. Even when I am not particularly in the mood, I still love doing it because it pleases him and it is an intimate bond that brings us close together no matter how hectic our day has went. It's healthy for a couple to stay sexually active together.
    I only believe sex should be withheld for necessary reasons such as after child birth etc.
    Sex should always be a selfless act.

  • I'll remember that when I'm puking my guts OUT after a dialysis treatment... because my husband wants me. I'm sure some vomit may make things real nice and kinky. what do you think?

  • Obviously (unless you are really obtuse), times when couples should not or can not have sex are not the same thing as deliberately withholding sex as a punishment.
