Porneia.


Por-nei'a

Porneia is a broad term referring to sexual behavior that is not considered acceptable in a culture, religion, or tribal society. One could say it is 'illicit' sex or sexual practices.

Porneia is not allowed and is against the rules of the Jehovah's Witness religion. Even flirting is not allowed.

Porneia involves 'immoral use of the genitals, whether in a natural or in a perverted way'. This includes oral sex, anal sex, and manipulation of the genitals between individuals who are not married to each other. Porneia does not require skin contact, copulation, or sexual climax.
