The production of amateur porn can actually be a ministry and be honoring to God

Previously I have answered objections that Christians and non-Christians have to the use of porn and I have also stated that I believe the use of porn can help societies bring down the rate of sex crimes as well as help Christian men to avoid sexually sinning by having sexual relations outside of marriage.

But if porn is good and healthy for men to use then it must somehow be produced right? In my “Argument #6 Porn is wrong because we are enjoying other people’s sin” I said this about the “source”, “inspiration” or way that porn is produced:

“The Apostle Paul told Christians how to handle a situation where you go to the market to buy something and you are worried about its source:

“Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake”

I Corinthians 10:25 (KJV)

In this example Paul was talking about Christians worrying that the meat they were buying in the market had been sacrificed to idols before it was sold to them.  He told them to worry about the source that it was simply meat.

In the same way it would be irrelevant for a man when he was buying that erotic image painted on stone to grill the artist as to his inspiration.  Would he prefer that the artist’s inspiration was not from watching a prostitute with a man? Of course.  Would the man buying meat in the market prefer that the meat had not been sacrificed to an idol? Of course.

And now bringing this full circle back to this modern topic of the use pornography by Christians. Would we prefer that all images of men and women having sex were inspired by (photographs of) married couples? Of course we would.  But once the image is made, it is simply that – an image. Just as meat was just meat.”

The issue of porn production is not that much different than movie productions in general.  Would we prefer that every movie we watched adhere to Christian values throughout the movie? Of course we would. Many great Christian movie production companies have started in the last 20 years and we enjoy these great Christian movies and we would like to see more of them.

In the same way we as Christians should support the production of pornographic movies that adhere to a Christian worldview of sex.  That means movies that use only married actors to perform sex scenes. It also means that these movies do not have types of sexual activities that violate God’s law such as homosexual acts and orgies.

From an amateur perspective, we should encourage Christian married couples to produce nude images and images of sex acts that are within the bounds of God’s law.

The production of these images would be a ministry in two ways:

The primary way they would minister to others in giving men material to use as tool to exercise their sexual desires.  Whether it is because the man’s wife is ill and unable to have sex, or his wife sexually denies him or just because he has a higher sex drive and need for variety these images would be a powerful tool in actually keeping these men from sinning.

A secondary benefit of the production of these types of images by Christian married couples would be that they could actually teach and instruct both men and women on proper sexual techniques and give them ways to do things they had not thought of before.   There is no area where the phrase “a picture speaks a thousand words” is more true than in the area of sexual education.  Trying to describe sexual acts and displaying images of them are two very different things.

Safeguards that are needed

When it comes to sex as with many other things we do in life safeguards are always needed. If a Christian married couple were to decide to try and minister to others by producing pornographic images this would have to be done under the direction of the husband.  A wife cannot decide to this on her own, neither should a husband force his wife to do this.  This must be calling that they both agree to.

And let’s be realistic, in the same way most people have stage-fright about singing a solo or giving a speech in front of a crowd most people would be too shy to produce pornography and that is ok.  But just as in acting, singing and public speaking there are a few brave souls that can do this, and some actually enjoy do it there are some Christians that would have absolutely no problem doing this.

But this is where safeguards come in.  The husband directing and overseeing this ministry with his wife would have to guard himself and her from any type of virtual sex or communications with others.  No man could be allowed to converse with his wife sexually or make requests of her via email, instant message or any other communication. He would also have to refrain from allowing any inappropriate communication between himself and other women. In fact, it would probably be best that when couples engage in this type of ministry that their contact information is kept confidential.

What I have just described here about porn being a ministry is not original to me.  It is already happening on some Christian amateur porn sites. But the key to this type of ministry in most cases comes down to wife’s view of sex.

While there are many women that enjoy sex with their husbands, 95% of these women would never want a film of themselves or them having sex with their husbands released.  But there is a small fraction of Christian women that have no problem making these kinds of images that would minister to men and Christian couples in the ways I have previously mentioned.

So if you have a shy wife then don’t push this.  If you have a shy husband, then don’t push this.  But if you are reading this and you know that both you and your husband are “free spirits” when it comes to sex and you are not shy about showing your bodies then by all means you both should pray about this as a ministry that you could do together that could possibly help people all over the world.
