  • I can only answer from the viewpoint of an "outsider" (non-Christian) who has read the Bible a couple of times. So my answer/opinion really means nothing to be honest. I'll share it anyway.. lol

    Anal sex is sodomy. Therefore according to the Bible, it is a sin or "wrong" (whichever term one chooses to use). However. Much like everything in the Bible. It is up to individual interpretation. Some view it as okay if it's between a man/woman, some view it as wrong only if it's between man/man, and some view it as wrong all the way around.

  • According to the Bible it is wrong, because it is a form of sodomy.

  • It's not a form of sodomy, that's what sodomy is. And yes the Bible says it's wrong. From what I understand it can be interpreted for reasons as not safe, desecrating your body, unclean etc.

  • .Love for our spouse, and respect for the bodies and minds God created, requires us to avoid anything which can cause serious problems: (Ephesians 5:29 & 33, 1 Corinthians 6:19)

  • If the Bible did say anything about anal sex you would not hear any preacher preaching about it. I am sure that there is nothing in the Bible stating about anal sex.

  • Oh wow, go look it up. I didn't state an opinion, I stated what was in the Bible and how it tends to be interpreted.

  • IF you believe that Sodomy is wrong (which is the basis for the homosexual argument) then you should abstain from oral or anal sex. The definition of Sodomy is anal or oral copulation, copulation with members of the opposite sex or with animals...

    To me, if you enjoy it, go for it... But when I was growing up (I was raised Christian) I was always told that Sodomy in ANY form is just as bad as any other, even within a marriage.

  • Sooo, I guess if you like oral and you are Christian you are screwed huh? lol

    autbot, that's one definition they have out of others. It's also a direct term used to describe anal sex. It's often the word used to describe anal sex in crime reports as well.
