Message: Even the Bible Teaches Anal Sex is Natural
Anal Evangelist: Many think the Bible teaches that anal sex is wrong. To the contrary, I believe the Bible teaches anal sex is the “natural use of a woman.”
The intention of this post is not to attack homosexuality, but to point out some interesting things I noticed regarding the teachings of the Bible in regard to anal sex. This is why I have truncated the following verses, as the remainder doesn’t effect the context in regard to anal sex between a man and a woman.
Some may say the Bible teaches sex is just for procreation, but that flies in the face of Proverbs 5:18-19:
Proverbs 5:18-19 says, “May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth. A loving doe, a graceful deer — may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be intoxicated with her love.”
That doesn’t sound like the writer is talking about procreation, but recreation.
Romans 1:27 says, “And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another…”
What then is the “natural use of the woman?”
Leviticus 20:13 says, “If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman…”
As anal sex is the only way a man can have sexual relations with another man, the logical conclusion is that “the natural use of the woman” would be for anal sex. In other words, normal sexual relations for pleasure were meant to be anal sex. This seems only logical in that there was limited means of birth control at the time these passages were written.
1 Corinthians 7:5 says, “Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.”
This verse seems to indicate sexual relations were expected to be frequent. As it is today, with limited resources, few couples could afford to feed and clothe a large family. Anal sex was (as it is today) the perfect solution to allow frequent sexual relations, while limiting the number of children a family would have.
I’d be interested to know what others think.
It’s an interesting theory, and looking back at it from our perspective it makes sense, and we do know that there were a number of cultures in history who engaged in anal sex as their primary form of sex in part for birth control purposes. I don’t think there’s enough evidence within the Bible to definitively say this was the case there, but it’s fun to imagine if nothing else!
