Not for Just Anyone

“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” (Proverbs 5:18-19).  I see that verse 19 as a good measure to use when it comes to physical intimacy.


When I was at school, I’m sure teenagers knew that underage sex wasn’t the way to go, but I still remember the comments:  “He had his hand up my top” or “He asked her to go topless.”  It’s our responsibility to think what we’re asking of another person, and how much we’ll share with them.  According to this verse, your wife’s breasts should satisfy you, so it’s not just sex that should be saved until marriage.


What I really want you to take away from this is that you’re special, and the parts of your body aren’t for just anyone.
