Quoting Quiverfull: Defrauding Your Spouse?

by Michael Pearl from his book ‘Holy Sex’ at the 80% mark on the Kindle since Michael didn’t provide page counts for the electronic version.

“Defraud ye not one the other…[To withhold sexual satisfaction from one’s partner is to defraud]… except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency” (1 Corinthians 7:5)

Again, the assumption is that when one does not have his or her sexual needs met in marriage, it leaves  them open to be tempted of Satan. God intended for a spouse to give more than passive submission. If a woman or a man is not an active and interested participant, they are defrauding their partner.

Next part Michael compares sex with worshiping God.
