Just Plain Fun!
Too many Christians simply do not know how to relax, enjoy life, and simply be “good animals,” good physical creatures. They always have to be working, always worshipping, frequently worrying, and continually weighted down.
God, on the other hand, wants us to enjoy life, and our Life in Him. Play is a wonderful thing. So is relaxation. God gave us a capacity and a need for both. And we need both if we are to be well-balanced individuals.
The Act of Marriage is wonderful adult play between a man and a woman united for life in Holy Matrimony before God. During sex intimacy is experienced and expressed. There is the giving and receiving of pleasure. Lovemaking is just plain fun, fun that is blessed by God. After all, He “invented” it.
For those of us without a spouse, or without a spouse available, the Act of Masturbation is also wonderful adult play. Sure, it may not be “the ultimate” that the Act of Marriage is, but it sure is a whole lot better than nothing.
