I had a reader comment come into my email, and I know there are probably many women curious about this as well.
Men are always thought to be visually stimulated. When a man in visually stimulated, it’s usually pretty obvious, but what about women? Are women visually stimulated? Is it OK to be visually stimulated?
Of course it is okay for a woman to be visually stimulated. If the sight of her husband’s erection really turns her on, there is absolutely no problem with that. He probably LOVES it! Now, it’s harder to tell visually that a woman is stimulated visually, but that doesn’t mean in doesn’t happen.
Me? Yes, I love to watch my husband’s naked body and his erection. I am not one that is visually stimulated. My stimulation comes from touch and smell more than sight. There is nothing wrong, biblically with visual stimulation. Reading Song of Solomon or going through the Peasant Princess series (Mars Hill Church, Mark Driscoll pastor) are good resources can give you some insight.
If you are not visually stimulated, there is nothing wrong with you. Please don’t think you are defective or anything. If you are visually stimulated, there is nothing wrong with you either! God created each of us differently and unique, but all in His image. Embrace the way God created you in your marriage. Bless your husband no matter if you are visually stimulated or not. God approves either way!
