190: Cultivating Healthy Eroticism in Long-term Marriages, with Dan Purcell

by | Jun 7, 2024 | General Posts, Podcast

For a lot of us, we associate the word “eroticism” with something that’s distasteful or something that we probably shouldn’t want as a Christ-loving people, right? 

We don’t go embracing the things we see on Las Vegas billboards, for example. So eroticism to to some is kind of something hard to hear.  Now, this is a concept I teach towards the end of our retreats and my program because there’s a lot of groundwork to cover first to understand it. And I understand that we generally don’t talk about eroticism because it’s very personal.

But whether you believe that the book of Songs of Solomon / The Song of Songs in the Old Testament was inspired by God or just purely, really good Hebrew poetry, we have many examples, even in the Bible, of married couples using their eroticism to create something special within their relationship, something precious. 

And that’s the kind of eroticism I want to talk about today. It’s the kind that will strengthen your marriage and bring you closer together.
