1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. The bible says to abstain from it. Sex outside of marriage is a sin. The ability to procreate is a sacred ability and purpose given to man by God. when God first create the world, he made Adam and eve, and said neither the man is without the woman nor the woman without the man. He commanded them to multiply and replenish the earth. Se.x should be a sacred and private act between a married man and women, as a way to make children and to express love. it is not meant to be abused. yes, it's a sin.
I didn't see oral... but that is still a sexual act.

Sex is Sex .. any kind of sexual activity .. even kissing can be construed as sexual activity. I'm not talking about kissing your dear ol' Gramma kind of kissing .. I'm talking about sexually charged kinda kissing .. although harmless between two unmarried people .. kissing in a sexual manner is considered as adultery if a person who is married is doing it with someone other than their spouse.

Sex is the Bible is defined in a very limited way compared with modern definitions. In the Bible sex is ONLY between a man and a woman, with penetration (some say only vaginal, others say including anal). Oral sex is not considered sex in the Bible, and is not disallowed explicitly, as it was not considered sex. Also, homosexual relations between two men are disallowed (because one man takes on the woman's role), but not between two women. You may ask then if we are to conclude that the Bible does not condemn oral sex between two unmarried people. It does, but indirectly. The Bible commands us, "You shall be holy, for I, the Lord thy God, am holy" (Leviticus 19:2). The rabbis have learned from this commandment that unwholesome acts are also disallowed, although not banned explicitly. That is why most orthodox rabbis are against lesbianism or oral sex between unmarried couples.(Some are against the latter also between married couples for the same reasons.) Rashi indeed commented that "you shall be holy" means to "...refrain from sex and sexual transgressions, for on the other side of the boundary of sexual transgressions is where you find holiness".
