I don't think it clearly says so anywhere (unless we define "sexual immorality" to be a list that includes it), but Paul implies it here, IMO:

1 Cor 7:9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.

So, in his opinion ("But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment"), the only good reason for getting married is to have sex, if you really need to. Could this one scripture be the entire basis for the taboo against premarital sex, in the Christian world?

In the OT, if premarital sex were forbidden, why is there a long list of people (close kin) who you were not to approach for sex, in Leviticus 18?

Someone said to a woman one time, "Sex before marriage is important. Who would buy a pair of shoes without trying them on?" To which the woman replied, "And who would want to buy used shoes?"

Re: Sex Before Marriage: Does God Approve?

from what I understand there are a lot of husbands who, after being pursued, enticed, seduced, and then married to that sweet Apostolic girl, are now wondering, "How come we're not allowed to have sex after marriage?"

I wasnt joking! It was a crude remark but there is a lot of truth in it. Sexual incompatibly is a major cause for indescretions.
