Are 'vibrators' a sin? - 5th January 2006, 08:31 PM

Thought this would be a interesting topic. Is the use of a vibrator a sin? Is it ok for a married woman to use one when her partner's away? or with him/her? What about a single woman?

I once asked a priest if it was okay to kiss a nun. He said yes, just so long as I didn't get into the habit....

Dunno about sin, but there are several states where it's illegal to even own a vibrator.

But it's an interesting point. If the husband cared enough to provide his wife with several "toys" to use while he was away, then I suppose whenever he left, he would say, "Good-bye, my dear; I'll leave you to your own devices."

You are so silly and I love it!

I certainly wouldn't think so. It sure would be better than being tempted to take on a lover. Now, don't get me wrong...I think that the adultry comes into play when people do things without the knowledge of their partner. I realize that some couples have no problem with having lovers, and they both know all about it. That will work for some, but not for others, and it is up to the couple to determine where their borders are. But I'm primarily referring to the couple who have agreed not to do anything with anyone else (or haven't set the boundaries yet). Everyone has a need for sexual gratification, and the more we restrict our sexual expression, the greater the chance is that we will give in to temptations.

"And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself. And He said, Who told thee that thou was naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?"

I'm uncertain where you were going with that, but I agree with it. We are imperfect, and it would be arrogant not to realize and accept it. Forcing ourselves into a position where we are more likely to transgress is not wise, nor is it doing anything to honor the Grandfather.

You're kidding, right? What business is it of anyone else's whether a person uses a vibrator or not?

And I don't believe that using a vibrator is a sin.


So much to learn and see and do

Well, if I was going to be technical, I guess I'd say if it was used outside the relationship without the partner's knowledge, then yes, it probably is. As part of the relationship and with the knowledge of the partner, then, no...


Maggie, I actually agree with you, who's business is it? Same argument about committed relationships without marriage, homosexuality and the like.

Both Alabama and Texas have similar laws against sex toys and while many people simply laugh them off as a joke (oh, those silly Texans) these laws hurt people who really aren't doing anything wrong.

Earlier this year, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a case filed by the American Civil Liberties Union that contested the Alabama law, which has now been upheld.

The case was a constitutional challenge to a 1998 (no, these laws are not prehistoric) amendment to Alabama's obscenity provisions that made it illegal to sell or produce "any device designed or marketed as useful primarily for the stimulation of human genital organs." A violation can lead to up to a $10,000 fine and up to one year in jail.

Here's an article about Texas and Alabama laws regarding vibrators.

...hmm, goes to show that our judicial system needs to stop stepping away from religion and prohibiting it, but rather to start embracing the ideals contained within it. (Hey, you know why the judges, congressmen, and senators want to remove the ten commandments, don't you? They have a problem with "Thou shalt not steal", though shalt not have another god before me", and "thou shalt not commit adultery"...since none of them can pass these three tests, they want to remove the commandments. )
