The other day, I had a thought: Why don’t I give my wife more massages? Seriously. This isn’t a rhetorical question. I mean, let’s think about it. In my marriage (and I’m guessing many more), massages:
- Help her relax
- Help her transition from “mother” or “teacher” or whatever-else to wife
- Help get her in the mood
- Help get her ready for more sexual touch
- Let me see her body
- Let me feel her body
- Let me give her pleasure
- Usually lead to better-than-average sex (and our average is pretty amazing already). Continue reading
We had a pretty rough Christmas break in 2012. December started with everyone in the family getting colds, which, with 4 kids is a fairly regular event, nothing new. We all got over it, except my wife. Hers persisted for weeks. She went to the doctor after the first couple of weeks, was told it’s just a cough and cold, you’ll get over it.
A few weeks later with no improvement, she went back. Turns out she had bronchitis. So, she went on the medication, which made her feel worse than ever. Finally, by mid-January, she’s pretty much back to normal.
So, what does this have to do with Sex Within Marriage? Well, basically, our sex-life tanked during this sickness. Now, our marriage is pretty solid, and we can weather dry-spells like this these days. I’ll admit, after a while, I do get a bit cranky, but I’m not feeling depressed or wondering if my wife still loves me like I used to.
But, after a week or two of our frequency being back up near normal, I have noticed quite a few things are different that I wasn’t really noticing during the month. Now, I always knew that I performed better in life when we’re having regular sex, but I didn’t realize how much. Continue reading
I often read, in forums and comments, complaints from one spouse or another who isn’t getting what they want out of sex. Sometimes it has to do with a very simple problem of the spouses not knowing each others goals in a sexual encounter (or all of them).
So, what are some potential goals for a sexual encounter? Continue reading
This Christian family has a tradition, for 8 generations (at least, might be more), the grandmothers have sat their granddaughters down during their engagements and unloaded everything they know about sex to them over a week or two visit. Completely in private, no one around, giving time for questions, repetition, and time to let all the information sink in.
I love this concept. I hope I can remember to do with this my grand children.
The book came about because one of the daughters became terminally ill and couldn’t bear the thought of breaking the tradition. So, she started typing out everything we wanted her granddaughters to know. Eventually word got out (discretely among the other wives) and they started adding what they knew and were taught, and learned on their own to the body of knowledge.
Now, I thought this was the holy grail of sex knowledge. 8 generations of a large Christian families sex tips and tricks including a former lesbian and a former high-end call girl.
Now, here’s the catch, there are two problems: Continue reading
