Sex, when properly used, has a good effect upon the body and health. The problem is that most people dont know, and are not taught, the proper use. first of all, sexual intercourse is served only for married people, and then only with the one you are married to until you are separated by death. Only at this time you have legal and moral liberty to choose another partner. In reality, the act of intercourse is marriage. We must avoid being guilty of polygamy.
When both the husband and wife are feeling well, and have had an opportunity to lovingly be in each other's presence for a few hours, the act of intercourse can be very relaxing and beneficial to the nerves and the health in general. It has to be an unselfish thing, and each one trying to give rather than receive. Only when both can reach a successful climax is the maximum benefit received. After the first year of marriage, this act should not take place more frequently than once a week to maintain the best of health. The woman is usually much slower to reach a climax than the man. The man must be considerate and patient to give his lover equal rights. In sickness or sorrow, willful abstinence should be practiced. Also, to prevent venereal disease and sin, it is important to abstain for seven days every month beginning with the first day of the menstrual period. Why? because God said so, and it is best for your health.
One of the biggest causes of disease in the world today is guilt. Unlawful and secret sex has caused a lot of guilt. Adultery, fornication, masturbation or self abuse, homo-sexuality, and rape have killed many people and caused others great misery. The months, years and lifetime of misery caused by a few moments of pleasure are not worth it. Amnon and Tamar were half brother and sister, children of King David. Amon loved his sister and finally trapper her into rape. The story says that immediately after this act, he had a hate for her which was greater than the former love that he had. Why? because of guilt. Read the story in Second Samuel chapter thirteen, verses six to eighteen. On further it tells how this caused death in the family. Just as children must have parents to guide them, so adults must have God to guide them. All these abuses of sex cause premature aging, insanity and disease. Obedience to God and His law is liberty and health.
It takes about a week to replace in your body the fluids lost during the sex act. These are needed as hormones in your body to give you health and intelligence. To waste it is like borrowing money from bank and never repaying it. The debt of health is worse than the debt of money. We have seen hundreds of sex perverts and masturbates live a miserable existence and die young. In Exodus twenty of the bible, when God said, "thou salt not commit adultery", he was thinking of your health and happiness.
