- The wife of Hillsong founder Brian Houston has issued a grovelling apology
- Bobbie Houston ‘deeply regrets’ using ‘offensive’ language in an audio book
- Apology came after the 2003 tape about couple’s sex life recently resurfaced
The wife of Hillsong founder Brian Houston has begged for forgiveness after using ‘offensive’ language including a shocking slur in an audio book describing the couple’s sex life.
Bobbie Houston, 63, issued a grovelling apology saying she has ‘deep regrets’ over her choice of words in the 2003 tape where she revealed how she keeps fit and healthy to ensure she and her pastor husband can maintain regular bedroom antics.
Mrs Houston’s Kingdom Women Love and Value their Sexuality was full of her tips and tricks for Christian wives on how to keep their husbands satisfied.
‘If I carry weight I feel like a re***d, how are you going to do anything to surprise your man when you need a hydraulic crane just to turn over in bed?’ she said on the tape.

Mrs Houston said in a statement posted on the Hillsong website the comments were made when she was teaching the subject of healthy marriage, intimacy and family.
‘In that teaching I used certain words and examples that were unwise and offensive, and especially so in a world where appropriate and sensitive language is of absolute critical importance,’ Mrs Houston said.
‘I unreservedly and humbly apologised then for any hurt incurred and I do so again.’
Mrs Houston said she has spent more than two decades seeking to champion the rights of women ‘but that was not reflected in my comments’.
She runs Hillsong’s ministry for women and organises an annual conference attended by upwards of 47,000 women focusing on health and wellbeing.
‘We live in a world where words carry enormous weight and consequence and rightfully so,’ Mrs Houston said.

‘Life brings with it many lessons and moments of deep regret. I hope and pray that those affected will find it in their hearts to forgive me.’
In the audio book box set, she urged women to keep up their pelvic floor exercises to ensure their ‘plumbing bits’ were in perfect working order and even recommended plastic surgery, The Daily Telegraph revealed.
I unreservedly and humbly apologised then for any hurt incurred, and I do so again
‘Have plastic surgery if it makes you feel better and it is for the right reasons, and girls, pelvic floor exercise – can you believe I am saying this? You know, I have heard that orgasm is not as strong if you are really sloppy in that area.’
In another part of the audio, Mrs Houston shed more light on her energetic sex life and encouraged fellow women to hone ‘good’ skills in the bedroom.
‘We need to be good at sex ourselves so that if the world happens to come knocking we can tell the story of God in our lives,’ she said.
‘Without being lurid or untruthful; I have a great marriage and a great sex life’.
She was quick to clarify that she was only referring to sex ‘within the confines of marriage’.

Mrs Houston, who co-founded the now global Christian organisation with her husband in 1983, also said women should consider having plastic surgery if it is ‘for the right reasons’.
‘When it comes to personal hygiene and maintenance works, for example, get your teeth fixed, a mouth is supposed to be very desirable,’ she said.
‘Minimise the negative of ageing, ageing does strange things to us. It discolours your teeth. Things sag when you get older.
‘Old people’s habits, don’t go there before you have to. Who cares if you have a face lift, but do it for the right reason.’
Mrs Houston said even as she ages, she will continue pampering herself and prioritising her looks.
