Read for yourself, this is the only way you will know for yourself. It talks about it a lot in Corr. but I'm not really sure because I'm just starting out with the bible myself The Bible is full of teaching & application regarding the topic of sex. Genesis 1:28 deals with God blessing Adam & Eve by commanding them to "Be fruitful and multiply (KJV). He then adds to this "and replenish the earth." The word "replenish" tends to confuse alot of people. In the Hebrew language (what most of the OT was originally written in) "replenish" means "to fill." That's only going to be done by Adam having children with Eve, the natural outcome of sex. Whenever you see the word "knew" in the OT, oftentimes when it's associated between a man & a woman, it means that the man had sex with the woman. It's used as well in Genesis 19:5 with the men of Sodom when they came to Lot's home. As homosexuals, they came to Lot demanding that he turn over the two angels (which they thought were just two men visiting Lot) to have sex with them ("bring them out unto us, that we may know them.")
Proverbs 5:15-21 (written to one of Solomon's sons [5:1]) deals with the sexual relationship between a husband & wife and warns about the consequences of committing adultery with another woman.
There's an entire book of the Scripture devoted to the beauties of marital sex between a husband & wife: The Song of Solomon, sometimes called the Song of Songs. There are many interpretations of this book, but the clear, literal reading of this book deals with the "ups & downs" of a marriage & highlights in beautiful language & detail the wonder of marital, sexual love.
I Corinthians 7:1-5 deal with the Lord's teaching about the rights of both husband & wife, to expect their spouse to satisfy them sexually. That's what v.3 deals with in the words "render unto ... due benevolence." And, again, notice it's to both the husband & wife. V.5 then deals with the frequency of the sexual union between husband & wife. Paul says "Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time...; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency." The God-given command of frequent sex with your spouse is the best weapon against sexual sin. And notice in Paul's command, sexual abstinence between a husband & wife is to only occur "with consent for a time." "With consent" means that both husband & wife have discussed & agreed upon refraining from sex, but only "for a time" (a short, predetermined time in our modern language).
Hebrews 13:4 says "Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled:." The phrase "the bed" in the Greek (the language the NT was originally written in) means the sexual union between husband & wife.
Sex is intended by the Lord to be a rich source of blessing & pleasure between a husband & wife. Thus, His Word is full of instruction regarding this wonderful topic. I encourage you to do further study about this. I've by no means exhausted the Scripture's teachings about sex. It talks about sex throughout the entire bible. But if you are looking for answers about how man and woman should act toward one another go to 1st Corinthians chapter 7. There is more much more but here is a very good start.
