I totally disagree with certain sex practices between a husband and wife. For example, anal and oral, for health reasons. You can do research as to why these practices in itself are dangerous. As far as sex toys...why? Making love is suppose to be beautiful, not raunchy. I can't understand why a couple would want to spice up their sex life with "gadgets", as we know where "gadgets" are inserted. When gadgets no longer do the trick, then it's on to more demeaning sex. Mankind will devise all sorts of degrading sex "toys" for a wife to use to satisfy the lustful passionless tastes of her husband. There's other acts that are not mentioned in the bible, but when you know the heart of God and what He's written in total, you know He does not want these practices. Oral? Simply degrading, insulting, and not healthy. Mankind always turns something God meant to be beautiful...ugly.

Anal sex was classed as buggery and illegal between husband and wife. How can we as Christians encourage this by saying anything goes within marriage This is and has been a homosexual practice; one cannot conceive by allowing this. It’s medically known the anus especially harbours all manner of viruses, whereas the vagina is actually self cleaning I have learned. 

I think oral sex, toys and the likes are misguiding us to think pornographic thoughts, and it's best that a Christian couple stay away from them. Our god-given bodies should be honoured.
