Can You Clarify Love, Sex, and Lust in Marriage?
I am confused about what is love and what is sex. Is it ok to turn my husband on? Is it ok for him to see my body or does that just encourage lust?
Sex is one aspect of love. It is a unique experience that a man and his wife can share together. There is nothing wrong with enjoying it! If you love your husband, you want to please him and, within proper limits, do whatever you can to satisfy him.
God wired men to be attracted to and turned on by women’s bodies. A husband’s sexual desire for his wife is a healthy thing. Lust is unnatural sexual desire aimed at unlawful objects, such as the bodies of other women. Therefore, it is perfectly permissible for you to turn your husband on—whether it is through seeing your body or through your involvement in lovemaking.
