Does Sexual Intimacy Have Any Effect?

My Response on a friend's post..
.
There are several dimensions to the effect of sexual intimacy – medical, physical, psychological, spiritual and emotional. 
.
Medically, sex with a diseased partner will lead to a transfer of STDs. Using condoms might prevent it but I’m not in support of premarital or extramarital sex. Physically, their body joins together during the act and they experience a state of pleasure – climax and orgasm before relaxation where one of the party sleep off (Men are guilty of this).
.
Psychologically, it comes with guilt, condemnation and frequent sexually intimacy might lead a person to become a sex maniac. Emotionally, sex fuses two souls together. Although soul tie can occur without sex. David and Jonathan didn’t have sex and their souls were knitted together. Communication is key!
.
On the matter of the spiritual implication of illicit sexual affair. First, sex makes you ONE FLESH with whosoever you have it with because it is a covenant. One flesh literally means the spiritual and physical union of two people in a relationship, especially marriage. This is fostered through intimacy - either sexual or emotional. 
.
Are spirits transferred through sex? No! Biblically, it was not proved. But through it, a binding covenant is initiated especially when it is consented sex. Does our spirit have sex? No! Even in the Bible, the fallen angels had to take up the body of men to commit whoredom with the children of men which led to the birth of giants (Gen. 6:1-4). 
.
Are curses and blessings transferred through sex? Somehow. A covenant is established through sexual union. A covenant is an agreement which binds two people together. When a man has sex with a woman, an agreement which involves their soul and spirit has been established. If man A carries a curse and intimate sexually with lady B, she agrees to be ONE with him. This is why some contact ill-luck and misfortune when they have illicit sexual affair with strange women or men.
.
On the issue of blessing transfer, the same applies as it were in the case of curse. I agree with the fact that sex is beyond a physical activity. Curses and blessings are not physical but spiritual. They convey a spiritual force that attracts blessing or curse into the life of whosoever it is directed to. If you have sex, whether protected or unprotected with a demonized person, the demon in his life has the access to trouble your life because there’s an agreement (covenant) between you two.
.
A rape victim, if not medically attended to will end up becoming pregnant. If she is not spiritually catered for, she might end up having an agreement with the soul of the rapist. Although, it was coerced.
.
Biblically, if you have sex with someone who is NOT your spouse, you hurt your soul, your life will be reduced to a piece of bread, you’ll bring shame and dishonour to your life (Prov. 6:26, 32-33). If you engage in illicit sex, your life cannot remain the same because something is reduced, something is missing and something has been introduced (Prov. 2:19). 
.
Is sex evil? No! But doing it outside the legalized environment makes it evil and destructive. But without spiritual understanding, you’ll think sex is JUST pleasure, fun, enjoyment and so on. May God give you all the grace to abstain from illicit sex before and during marriage.
