The Corinthian church was coming out of idolatry and needed guidelines for marriage and marrying. Chapter 7 :1 Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. The Word here for touch is haptomai which is to attach oneself to another, [ie to touch] in many implied relations. This makes more sense as he’s not talking about just a touch, but joining, because below he talks about temptation to immorality. Better to be joined, than walk in immorality. Paul addresses issues about marrying.
