Sex is an important aspect in most every marriage. It’s what differentiates your relationship with your spouse from all others. It’s powerful, chaotic, and wild. Full of all types of energy—spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical. Everyone who ventures into the world of sex does so with some level of anxiousness, nervousness, excitement, and perhaps even fear.
Sex is also everywhere. Stand in line at the grocery store and see if you can avoid seeing the word sex on a magazine cover. I bet you can’t.
It seems that everyone is doing it.
Talking about sex however, is possibly one of the more difficult conversations in life. Having a conversation about sex with your children is one thing. But what about with your spouse?
Did you realize that for many people, it’s easier to talk about sex with friends than it is with their sexual partner? It’s because of the anxiety this most intimate subject and act creates.
Remember how nervous you were during your first sexual encounter? Filled with uncertainty, the exploration of the unknown, being vulnerable with someone else, sharing new parts of yourself with another person?
After a while, the nervousness subsides, confidence increases, but … routine takes over.
