I read a blog entry called Married, Saved and Still Sexy, and I can actually say that I wish I had the same kind of women friends that this author does! It sounds really cool to be in her circle!
Unfortunately in most of my circle of friends, it seems taboo to talk about married sexuality. My dear, Christian friends, if we cannot talk about married sex, how in the world do our younger generations of believers learn that it is OKAY to enjoy sex once you are married?? I don’t mean about going into detail about what you and your DH do in bed, but just praising with the angels and your friends when things are going well in your marriage bed, and offering guidance and assistance to friends when maybe things aren’t going so great. I love the passage in Titus 2 about “3 Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. 4 Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
So, I love to read blogs where they are in line with what I believe in. That God intended the marriage bed to be not only pure and holy, but wild and sexy, too! SO what can we do to continue to spread this good news to others? How many blogs such as mine do you read and spread the word on?
i LOVE this post! this is something i feel strongly about. just under a year ago my dh and i uprooted our family to move to a new state. it’s been hard, but it’s been so rewarding. for the first time in my life, i finally have found a group of girlfriends that i can talk married sex with! and it’s so nice! i totally agree. if we act like it’s taboo, then our kids get the wrong message. of course, there are boundaries, and spouses need to know and be okay with what we’re sharing, but i think it’s so great to be able to talk about these things that are a special part of marriage. i recently went to a party and heard a very funny story about (and from) a woman at church and one of her “adventures”. a woman i never would’ve thought would have such a story! it made me laugh and made me respect her just a little more knowing that she was a happily married woman who believed in the sanctity of being one with her spouse. is it weird that i have just a little more respect for her now? (i had heaps before). if more people were willing to talk and share, some problems could possibly be fixed and some avoided. more good, clean dialogue is needed in this area!
