Mrs. Happy recalls a recent time when, for about four weeks, she had very little interest in being intimate with her spouse via sex--and even when she did have sex, it wasn’t anywhere near as good as usual.
By Tesh Njokanma A heading like this can create different kinds of reactions. Curiosity in the minds of some people. Controversial discussions amongst some people. While some others may be stunned to see a heading like this. The reason being that a lot of people believe sex isn’t something a Holy and Righteous God has any […]
Quite a few wives find themselves with diminished or completely absent sexual desire, especially after the initial thrill of marriage has worn off. Often by this time, sex has become a disappointing experience, and the wife feels like something is wrong with her because she doesn’t enjoy sex as much as her husband seems to.
This is an important question because we are daily bombarded with misinformation and perverted ideas about sex and human sexuality
sex is often portrayed in the popular culture as a medium of ultimate pleasure and delight. Seldom is it seen as an expression of spirituality.
God created sex; He pronounced it good; it is for the benefit of both the man and the woman; and it is righteous and holy and intended for joy. It is one of God's most wonderful gifts to us. It can be one of the most thoroughly enjoyable aspects of marriage. “Let’s start over with sex.”
There. I gave you a way to start the conversation.
Good sex has three elements:
It is a good thing to open a dialogue about sex with your spouse if things aren’t right. But once you initiate the conversation, you must continue with it and not lose hope. Yes, you may suffer blows and hear some things you don’t want to hear, but when you open up the site of a deep wound, the festering substances begin to seep out.
Mark and Grace Driscoll have written a book on marriage, sex, and friendship with your spouse. It’s spicy. No stranger to controversy, Mark Driscoll has received rabid criticism from other theologically conservative Christians for his NC-17 discussions of sexuality. He’s even inferred that marriages would be stronger if wives gave more oral sex.
Millennials want nothing more (and nothing less) than relationship from older believers. They know they’re troubled in their marriages and friendships, and they’re looking to spiritually mature believers to point and model The Way.
Not much, if you’re trying to live a chaste life. Our brains don’t need much of an excuse to think about sex, especially when we’re not having any. So any detailed conversation about sex with your fiancé can easily lead to arousal. In fact, if he is alive and breathing and pumping red blood cells, the conversation is leading to arousal. Might as well just admit it.
“Mmmmm…” That is the sound of Mrs. Happy yawning on a Saturday morning. After a week of hard work and general sleep deprivation, she looks forward to sleeping in a few minutes. Oh, and visiting Mr. Happy. Or Mr. Happy visiting her. However it goes. And everyone is happy in the end, if you know what I mean.
“And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave clothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.” -John 11:43-44 (KJV)
Christian men are well acquainted with this struggle. They want to know how to satisfy their wives and themselves, but wonder if Christian sex allows for turning up the heat inside the bedroom. There is no shame in fanning the flames as sex is as natural as the rising and setting of the sun.
