The Bible doesn’t shy away from talking about human sexuality.

In fact, God starts talking about it on page 1 in the Bible…
So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply.” (Genesis 1:27-28)

Do you realize the 1st commandment God gave humans was to have sex?

OK, granted…this was mainly for reproduction purposes...
But in Gen 2, we find more details about how God created man & woman…
Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man. “At last!” the man exclaimed. “This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called ‘woman,’ because she was taken from ‘man.’” This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one. Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame. (Genesis 2:22-25)

Notice what it says..."the man and HIS WIFE"...they were married...
This is different from the earlier references of "man and woman" or "male and female". At this moment, the man and woman were married and that's when God starts talking about sex.

Sex is to only be experienced within the commitment of marriage
Anything outside of that is not in the design of God.
