How Intimately Us Came to Be

by | Jun 23, 2020 | General Posts

I’m so glad you’ve visited our blog on Intimately Us. Here you’ll find a ton of resources and ideas to keep intimacy fun & exciting in your marriage! 

Can I get a little personal and vulnerable with you? To introduce myself, I’m the lucky husband to a beautiful, amazing, and inspiring wife of 16 years. Together we have 6 children, ages 15 to 3. 

A Life-changing Conversation

Although we’ve had a really good marriage, a conversation with someone a little while ago made me realize our love life wasn’t what it could be. We were in a rut but didn’t realize it because we didn’t know any better. As Christians we didn’t feel like turning to porn or other raunchy material was right for us. But when it comes to intimacy, ignorance is not bliss! 

We were missing out on all the fun, and we needed more good & healthy information to figure each other out. 

In true nerd fashion, my wife and I went all-in. We binge-listened to podcasts, devoured entire blogs, and consumed 12 marriage books in a matter of months. And what could be more fun? As we learned and applied what we learned, the twitterpated feelings we once had in the beginning of our marriage returned stronger than ever! Our conversations became more deep and meaningful, we were more playful and flirtatious with each other. 

Our Sex Life Started to Rock!

Our disagreements tended to not last for more than a day. I started to do all sorts of fun romantic things for my wife. I felt myself get excited about coming home and eager to help out around the house and to be with our children. In short, my marriage covenant took on a whole new meaning, and I found motivation to become the very best husband I could be.

Of course there’s a lot more than great sex alone to making a marriage work. A couple needs to learn how to communicate effectively, resolve conflicts, and build a relationship with a healthy & positive emotional climate.

Intimacy Made a Big Difference

After seeing our own marriage go from good to great in a short amount of time, we couldn’t keep it to ourselves. I couldn’t believe what a big difference intimacy made. Turns out I’m not alone — many couples have found greater meaning in their lives when intimacy deepens in their marriages.

Unfortunately too much of what’s out there in the world is raunchy, degrading to women, and just doesn’t jive with our values. Some resources were outright anti-marriage and anti-family (polyamory anyone?). Perhaps you can relate. As Christians with a conservative background, we recognized there is a need for helpful, uplifting, and healthy resources.

And fun!! It has to be fun! What can be more fun than sexy games you can play in the privacy of your bedroom? 

Intimately Us Was Born!

After three years of careful research and planning (and lots of testing ?) Intimately Us was born! We teamed up with other sex experts devoted to strengthening marriages to develop Intimately Us: the fun and sexy app for your marriage. We hope you enjoy this app and that it’s a blessing to your marriage.
