Do not deprive her

Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
1 Corinthians 7:5 ESV

It’s easy to miss this implicit command. We often neglect and disregard the importance of her pleasure.

Even the best Bible teachers and commenters tend to assume sexual deprivation is a male problem.

A great pastor recently apologized for missing this himself.

Thank God for his word, which corrects our presuppositions and implicit biases, if we’re open to being corrected.
