Is Oral Sex, Sex?

1 Cor. 6:18 Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.

“I did not have sexual relations with that woman” -President Clinton

I keep getting this question asked over and over again from singles so to answer your question is yes. (Isn’t it interesting how people try to find loopholes to everything)? To say that oral sex isn’t sex is like telling a half truth or a little white lie. Either tell the whole truth or it’s a lie! People like to make oral sex like a little white lie and then the full act of sex like the truth so oral sex is having sex and I will tell you why:

Oral sex is very intimate. There’s a great deal of trust involved between the two parties who would engage in the act of oral sex. That type of trust should only be between a husband and wife. It wouldn’t be God honoring for you to share something that personal with someone you aren’t married to. The very act of having sex outside of marriage is a sin, so to think about putting your mouth on someone’s genitalia, has got to be worse!

If you start out with oral sex with your boyfriend or girlfriend, it will ultimately lead to the full act of sex. People think “I’ll just do this to satisfy them so we won’t have sex,” but in most cases people are hoping that it will lead to the full act of sex. Once you get started it will be hard to stop so don’t be misled by people’s intentions. Married or not, we are all sexual but something this intimate should only be shared between a husband and wife (if both parties are willing and comfortable).

The end result is to climax, right? So what’s the difference between oral sex and the full act of sex? It’s the same common goal. As the Bible read, “but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body,” why would you want to make your brother or sister sin against God?

So what’s the solution? Flee from sexual immorality! Don’t give opportunities that will open doors in this area of sexual temptation. Sometimes it’s just as bad to do “sexual favors” for someone because it gives a negative view on the one performing the act. Remember bad news travel fast and no one wants to be known as….
