Seasoned journalist Victor Kaonga has written a book Holy Sexual Intercourse to project the sacredness of the marital bed and denounce all sexual impurities in married life.
In the book, the author challenges couples to attain a deeper devotion with God and love for each other. He also encourages couples to connect with God while erotically connecting with self and each other.
In an interview, Kaonga said the book targets couples who are struggling in their prayer and sexual lives. The 17 chapters of the book are courtesy of the author’s experiences and research.
“The other part of the book attempts to address over 60 common questions on sexual intercourse and general marriage issues. I also have nine premarital questions. I have also drawn lessons from my marriage of 19 years and radio programming on building marriages,” he said.
Kaonga said he decided to unpack the mysteries around sex because most people struggle to openly share the subject; hence, the hypocrisy that is present among Christians when it comes to sexual matters.
He said: “It has even come to a point where other quarters think and believe it is dirty. Yet the Bible is quite clear that sex is a blessed act within the bounds of marriage. My desire is, therefore, to encourage many to view sexual intercourse as a holy thing meant for married people.”
The broadcaster said it is unfortunate that the church has not played a rightful role to erase the taboo about sexual intercourse which is solidified by the cultural perspective which presents it as fire while ignoring the holiness attached to it.
In one of the chapters, the author writes: “Sexual intercourse is a holy thing and should be taken with gratitude. But also if you use prayer as an excuse for not having sexual intercourse, then you may also be having a wrong view of prayer.”
Kaonga works as the national director of Transworld Radio. He studied social science at the University of Malawi’s Chancellor College and a master’s degree in global journalism from Orebro University in Sweden.
His Christian life dates back to 1990 while he served as a member of Students Christians of Malawi (Scom) at Rumphi Secondary School. At the moment, Kaonga serves as a deacon for Capital City Baptist Church in Lilongwe.
This book follows his 2016 publication, From A Listener To A Broadcaster.Holy Sexual Intercourse book has been published by Pan African Publishers. It will be formally launched this Sunday at Golden Peacock Hotel in Lilongwe.
