Hebrews 13:4 says "Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled." That is pretty much saying that married couples can do whatever in their own bedroom as long as it is consenual. However my question is what if a couple who goes by the bible but they are ok with bringing in a 3rd person into the bedroom? I'm not going to get into graphic details so use your imagination. My question is would this be considered a sin? Why or why not?

Yes. It is no longer between married parties if a third is there.

what translation are you using? The NIV which is much closer to what the original greek says is "marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and the sexually immoral." Which is a much different translation from what you are using.

In both translations it's a sin. Good enough?

Yeah I know that God probably wouldn't be down with any of that I just wanted to hear different peoples opinion on the subject.

The reason being a third person puts it outside the marriage.

I don't think God wrote that, it's just in the Bible.

and what about polygamy, then you could have more than 2 people and they would be married?

Are the wives considered married to each other?

No I believe that the husbands wives having relations with each other would be prohibited.

I thought that the wives would only be married to the man and not each other per religious guidelines. However I am not an expert on polygamy so I could be wrong.
