Do you ever wish your husband would take more initiative in the bedroom?

GS teaches how important being grounded, taking the lead, and responding rather than …
 
I’ve learned that intimacy problems can creep into the marriage because of unrealistic expectations and patterns of avoiding the issue. Whether it’s performance anxiety, body image issues, or even a sexless marriage, you can break out of your patterns that keep you stuck by getting a clearer understanding of your dynamic. I’m honored to have Braxto…
 
Experiencing pain with sex is, unfortunately, all too common for many women. According to one peer-reviewed study I read out of Australia, 20% of women regularly experience pain with sex. Other research suggests that just about every woman at one point in their life will experience pain with sex. But sex shouldn’t be painful. There are tons of reso…
 
Let’s get one thing out of the way first — dirty talk isn’t dirty. It’s actually an intimate form of communication to let your spouse into your heart and mind. It’s a way to express the erotic part of you with your lover. It’s about using your words to arouse. The nice thing about married sex is that it’s a place you can go where things don’t have …
 
Abuse of any kind, whether it’s physical, emotional, or sexual, is evil and wrong. Sexual abuse is particularly harmful because our sexuality is so personal to us. There is often some shame around our sexuality anyway, and the abuser takes advantage of it to make us feel less worthy. But healing is possible! If abuse is part of your story, I hope t…
 
I am so excited to talk about today’s topic! The idea for this podcast episode was partially inspired by an upcoming podcast episode I’ll be releasing in a few weeks.

There are so many parallels between money and intimacy when it comes to marriage. For many people, money represents security. When money issues creep up, it can threaten our ability to trust our spouse. Issues revolving around spending habits in a marriage can add a lot of stress to the relationship.

Initiating sex can be a very powerful way to communicate love and desire to your spouse. Initiating is a powerful bid for connection. It’s a way of saying, “I want to connect with you.” Initiating can be very intimate. And it’s very validating to be wanted sexually. To prepare for this episode, I ran an informal survey of our Instagram followers to…
 
I'm interested in doing a podcast episode primarily for men about understanding intimacy, especially if it wasn't modeled in your home growing up. To be clear, I don't mean “intimacy” as a euphemism for sex. I mean Intimacy as in relational closeness: a willingness to know and be fully known by your spouse. Many men struggle to get emotionally clos…
 
In every marriage, there is a spouse with higher desire for sex and a spouse with lower desire for sex. In this episode, I'll talk about the benefits of being higher or being lower desire.

It’s normal to seek validation from our spouse in marriage. By validation I mean to get a sense of our legitimacy as a person and a spouse, such as being told we’re sexy enough, pretty enough, and desirable. And it’s normal to seek that validation. But what do you do when you don’t feel it? What do you do when you feel like your spouse isn’t intere…
 
Like most kids, I loved taking on new roles when I’d play with my friends and siblings… whether it was cops and robbers, or ninjas, or race car drivers, there’s a creative & playful element to trying on new roles and identities.

Some couples really struggle with intimacy. And I’m not referring to “intimacy” as a euphemism for sex. I mean their relationship feels superficial and they’ve run out of “safe” topics they can discuss because all the harder topics make one or both of them anxious and uncomfortable. As a result, the marriage starts to feel a bit empty and unexcitin…

Al Carraway is probably the most optimistic and positive person I’ve ever met. Just being with her for an hour was life-changing. “Life is too short to stay unsatisfied.” and “Stubbornly refuse to have a bad sex life.” are two quotes that have rung in my head ever since our conversation. Al is from New York, and became a Christian in her early 20s.…

These are the questions I’ve had on my mind as I…
 
Talking about sex with your spouse is not easy for most of us. Whether it’s about preferences, desire level differences, pornography use, physical difficulties, or a number of issues, many of us find it easier to just resent our spouse rather than see the situation honestly as it is and take responsibility for our role in the matter. I enjoyed this…

The thing that stood out to me the most in this interview you’re about to hear is how important it is to focus on being our best selves if we want to fix our marriage. Also how important it is to shed our egos. And when we married, we signed up to love our spouse: meaning, to be their champion and cheerleader, not their critic. Laura Doyle is The N…

A few years ago, I was sitting around a campfire with other dads, hearing their stories of exciting trips and getaways they've been on with their wives. I was depressed, thinking, "woe is me!" With 6 young kids, and on a budget, all I could think of was reasons why I would never be able to enjoy that kind of an experience. Fast forward six months l…

We communicate a lot about who we are and how we feel about our spouse by the way we engage (or avoid) sex. Intimacy is about a willingness to let ourselves known, and that can be scary sometimes.

I’ve heard it said that issues relating to money are the second leading cause of divorce in America.
