The Bible never addresses the question of sex toys or “marital aids” — so we’d suggest (tentatively) that couples use their own judgment. But we’d be quick to add that mutual consent is absolutely critical. If you have any reservations about sex toys, don’t make a decision until you and your husband can talk.
A marriage class at BYU many years ago said "as long as things wound up in the right place," there wasn't much that was off limits. You're left to your own determination of what's the right place, but I think most people can figure that one out on their own. There's a thriving sex toy business in Utah, btw.
The LDS position is that SSM marriage is immoral inspite of whether sex is actually part of the equation, so from their perspective “gay sex” is never an expression of anything other than lustful impulses. I not stating this as an objective fact, but as how I percieve the Church to view homosexual “activity”.
Sexuality has a prominent role within the theology of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), which teaches that gender is defined in the premortal existence, and that part of the purpose of mortal life is for men and women to be sealed together, forming bonds that allow them to progress eternally together in the afterlife.
When two Latter-day Saints are united together in marriage, promises are made to them concerning their offspring, that reach from eternity to eternity. They are promised that they shall have the power and the right to govern and control and administer salvation and exaltation and glory to their offspring worlds without end.
Really I wrote this blog for curious LDS people who want to know more about sex from a Mormon's perspective. I'm not a doctor or a sex therapist or a psychologist or an expert of any kind, just a person who wants to give to others what she didn't have - a resource for some details about sex from a Mormon perspective.
If a sex toy is used, it should bring the couple closer and/or result in one or both of them enjoying sex more. If it results in either person feeling embarrassed or shamed, that is not good. The biggest obstacle to sex toys for most Christians may be finding a way to buy them without being exposed to objectionable products and pornography.
Sexuality can be one of the most perplexing and yet rewarding area of life for spiritually minded individuals.
