187: How Often Are Couples Actually Having Sex & Your Other Intimate Questions Answered, with Hailey Reidhead

As you know, I love answering your questions all about sex, marriage, intimacy, and more. I recently had the opportunity to answer anonymous questions from my friend Hailey Reidhead’s audience. Her listeners sent in questions which I was able to answer on her podcast, “She’s a Lady,” and Hailey allowed me to share it here with you.

In this episode, we’re going to address these great questions such as the following:

  • Does hormonal birth control affect libido even after you stop using it?
  • How often are couples actually having sex every week?
  • What to do when one spouse has a much bigger sex drive and it’s hard to keep up (and then you feel guilty for not having sex as often as they want) and how it feels bad telling them no so much.
  • How to spice up a long term marriage
  • And more!

The Most Rewarding Work of Our Lives

I believe building an intimate marriage is one of the most rewarding, most satisfying work we can experience in this life. I also believe strongly that sex is a gift from God to be enjoyed by husbands and wives and I encourage you to ask questions and seek answers about your sexual relationship. I used to think that sex was taboo and I was afraid to ask my questions about it mostly because others didn’t talk about it much or if they did, they did it in an irreverent joking way that really felt dirty or superficial.

I’ve come to learn that sex, in the intimate marriage relationship context where it belongs, is indeed something we should be talking about in constructive and appropriate ways, and all questions are always welcome. I hope this podcast gives you and your spouse permission to have conversations about your intimate relationship in ways that build you up.

I recognize that these conversations aren’t easy as there are many layers of history behind you. Sometimes a trusted guide is precisely what you need to help you get your marriage to your next level and get some help that’s adapted to your specific circumstances. I’ve been there, and I truly want to invest in your marriage.

This is why my team and I have put together the new Get Your Marriage On Program. This program is designed for busy couples that want to fix the difficulties around sex and intimacy in their marriage for good. This program isn’t about new positions or ways to spice things up. It’s not superficial like that.

It’s about going much, much deeper.

This program is ideal for anyone that is experiencing mismatched libidos, hang ups around intimacy, struggles with good girl or good boy syndrome, facing challenges from pornography use, or want help with communication. People in this program get real results. Check out the details on my website.
