Now that I have your attention
Im considering selling sex toys to help with the wedding costs. Like the Pleasure Parties and whatever… There is always money in sex but as a Christian woman (I am married) Im battling with religion and spirtuality. I know that once your married not too much is taboo but I wonder if selling sex toys is a Sin?
My husband says yes, but sin is sin no sin is greater than anyother. I’ll admit I still dabble in the world but im growing closer to God everyday.
What are your oppions please be honest and not snarky

Thats a great question, I think using them within your marriage is fine and dandy.
Is being a pure romance seller the best and only option you have to make some extra money?
Your right a sin is a sin- there is no classification system, you have to trust your conscious . If you feel convicted, i wouldn’t do it.

@Eva Peron: its pretty easy and not very time consuming because im working and going to school. I do feel convicted im not sure why… i guess im wondering if masterbation is a sin?

Have you been to one of these parties? Because if there’s some aspect to selling the product that you look down on or are uncomfortable with, it’s going to show. What made you pick the sex toys option, versus something like Pampered Chef? (Just curious)

@Eva Peron: agreed 🙂
Honestly, I dont think its a sin… but you might want to be careful with your own conscience.. pray about it, God will answer you!

The people who usually host Pleasure Parties/sell sex toys are those who have full knowledge of the items. So if you’re wondering about masterbation, I’m guessing you haven’t tested out all of the models. Are you going to be comfortable discussing clits, cocks, cum, other sexual terms with women who may be polar opposite from your beliefs? It doesn’t sound like it.
I think you can find another option to earn some extra cash that would fit your personality/beliefs/time schedule MUCH better. Tutoring, waitressing, dog walking, you name it.

If you’re Christian and looking for opportunities in direct sales, have you looked into Thirty-One Gifts? I am not completely familiar with the company, but I do know several Christian women who sell their merchandise (http://www.31gifts.com/). Seems like this would be a direct sales opportunity closely related to your beliefs.

I personally would find something else. More importantly, if you think it might be a sin and you do it anyway, you might risk going further away from God and keeping a stronger foothold in the world.
Continue to pray on it and good luck!

I don’t know if this helps, I am not affiliated with this company, but a lady from my former church actually works with this Christian Based Company. She does quite well with it, I don’t know too much about it, but their products are very nice. I have a few and have had good luck with them. http://scrip.cc/shopsite_sc/page1.html They have scriptures on all of their products which is really marvelous packaging!

I was going to suggest Pampered Chef or 31 bags as alternative options… But it looks like PPs beat me to it 🙂
I don’t have an answer to this question – I personally would not do it…
I do have a response though… I think that if you Darling Husband would rather you not do it, then you should find something else. Simply because… I don’t think this is a big enough deal to cause strife in your marriage – And it sounds like it WOULD cause strife if he views it as sin…
So, maybe a different genre, but a similar job? Like… tupperware, mary kay, pampered chef, 31 bags, etc… 🙂

@Jenlon: I was going to say the same thing.
You said your hubby thinks it’s a sin, so I would just side with him on that one. He might not like you selling dildos and could possibly be embarrased by it?

I’ve heard a great sermon on this before, I think by Mark Driscoll. Basically, he was saying that the toys themselves are not bad (within a marriage obviously). But the thing that can be not helpful is the erotic images that are displayed on the toys packaging. There is nothing wrong with wanting to pleasure your spouse more and zest things up in the bedroom. You have to be careful though that we aren’t putting images infront of our spouses or ourselves that aren’t helpful.
A PP linked a Christian sexy toy site, I didn’t clikc on the link, but I believe that they package the toys up without images.
Good luck to you & if you do decide to sell, I really hope it works out for you, when I’m married I will certainly be buying toys! 🙂

@missmarchmommy: I’m not sure if sex toys used for masturbation is really sinful….it depends how strict your relgious beliefs are
I’m going to assume you use them yourself so it’s not really that different to sell them is it

I don’t think it would be a sin at all to sell sex toys. Using sex toys isn’t a sin (IMO). And you can’t determine how people would use them. It’s not like you’re selling drugs… I wouldn’t consider it a sin, and I wouldn’t be offended at all if another christian I knew sold them. I would probably book a party 🙂
