182: Intimacy Isn’t Always a Walk in the Park – Answering Your Questions About Relationships, Sex, Communication, Orgasms, and Fantasies

by | Apr 12, 2024 | General Posts, Podcast

I’m humbled that you’d trust me with your most urgent and private questions–I receive anonymous questions every day through our website. We address a handful of these questions today and I’ll plan another Q &A episode in a few weeks. Sometimes I’ll combine a few related questions together to address things more efficiently. (Go to our website to submit your questions.)

As I address these questions today, I hope you see a common thread in everything I share. It’s my belief that really good sex and intimacy doesn’t come easily because everything of value in life takes consistent effort.

Building an intimate marriage isn’t supposed to be an overnight task.  I want to invite you to think of it in this way: the obstacles you experienced in intimacy in your relationship is God’s way of calling you to step in and grow up a little more in yourself and in your relationship with your spouse. Think of it as an invitation to learn how to take more personal responsibility, to learn to speak up, to learn, to be more humble, to be more honest, to be more patient, to be more kind, to be more compassionate, and to cherish your spouse more deeply than ever. Building a rewarding intimate marriage is indeed spiritual work.

I also believe sex is very core to who we are as an individual. Sex is so very personal. As a marriage coach, I solve sexual issues in the marriage first (with lots of compassion, by the way). These are delicate and real feelings, but if a couple can get the courage to address and work through their sexual difficulties first everything else in their marriage becomes a lot easier.

Whether it be finances, parenting in-laws, faith matters, or what direction the toilet paper roll should be loaded on the dispenser. I’m very grateful you’ve joined us today! Get ready to dive into these wonderful questions!
