Enjoying Her Erotic Garden
A garden enclosed is my sister, my spouse,
a spring shut up, a fountain sealed.
Your plants are an orchard of pomegranates
with pleasant fruits,
fragrant henna with spikenard,
spikenard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon,
with all trees of frankincense,
myrrh and aloes,
with all the chief spices—
a fountain of gardens, a well of living waters,
and streams from Lebanon.”
Awake, O north wind,
And come, O south!
Blow upon my garden,
That its spices may flow out.
Let my beloved come to his garden
And eat its pleasant fruits.
Song of Solomon 4: 12 – 18 NKJV
So, there you have it, Pomegranates, figs, nuts, apples, grapes, and mandrake all enjoyed in a "garden.” This young woman is a garden, and her spouse is invited to enter the garden and eat the pleasant fruits This means he is to manually and orally stimulate his bride in preparation, and then enjoy the pleasures of lovemaking as his penis enters the warm embrace of her secret garden, bringing both of them great pleasure in the sensations leading up to it and the actual moment of orgasm and ejaculation when his “seed” comes forth. Enjoyment of sex was called “eating,” and what a feast of face, and neck, and breast, and thigh, clitoris, and sweet vagina he enjoyed.
“I entered your garden and plucked your pomegranates.”
Yes, he did! The man fully erect enters his garden engulfed by the fragrance of myrrh, aloes, cinnamon, and frankincense. It was well known that these spices were used to perfume a bed in preparation for lovemaking.
"I have sprinkled my bed with myrrh,
aloes and cinnamon.
Come, let us drink our fill of love until morning;
let us delight ourselves with caresses.”
Proverbs 7:17 – 18
The spouse in the Song of Solomon says,
Until the day breaks
And the shadows flee away,
I will go my way to the mountain of myrrh
And to the hill of frankincense.
Song of Solomon 4:6 NKJV
Ah yes, the mountain of myrrh, that raised area above the secret garden, covered in soft curly hair, a clear reference to the pubic area. I will visit your mons Veneris, your pubic mound and we will make love all night long!
This woman is described as “a garden enclosed, a fountain sealed.” Only her spouse can come into this garden. The Interpreter's Bible says that in Oriental imagery "the wife is described in terms of a fountain, and sexual enjoyment in terms of drinking water."
Drink water from your own cistern,
And running water from your own well.
Should your fountains be dispersed abroad,
Streams of water in the streets?
Let them be only your own,
And not for strangers with you.
Let your fountain be blessed,
And rejoice with the wife of your youth.
As a loving deer and a graceful doe,
Let her breasts satisfy you at all times;
And always be enraptured with her love.
For why should you, my son, be enraptured by an immoral woman,
And be embraced in the arms of a seductress?
Proverbs 5:15-20 NKJV
Have a Blessed Orgasm and Joyous Ejaculation
The word fountain not only describes the delights of a wife, but is also an apt description of a man at the moment of orgasm. Let your fountain, your erect penis at the moment when it erupts in a sensual flow of semen, be blessed. Be blessed in all of your sexual ecstasy and release.
Again and again eating and drinking are used as euphemisms for sexual activity.
I have come to my garden, my sister, my spouse;
I have gathered my myrrh with my spice;
I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey;
I have drunk my wine with my milk.
(To His Friends)
Eat, O friends!
Drink, yes, drink deeply,
O beloved ones!
Song of Solomon 5:1 NKJV
The invitation went forth. He responded. With his manhood he has entered the garden and enjoyed the bliss of sexual union.
There are some who regard our sexuality as a lower part of our humanity. But by describing intercourse and orgasm as "eating" honey and "drinking" milk and wine, the Bible is saying that our sexual appetite is just as legitimate and blessed as our appetite for food, and it is God given and meant to be fulfilled. An erection is a glorious thing, as is a moist and ready-for-pleasure vulva and vagina. Our sexuality is holy.
