Sextember Couple’s Highlights

September this year took on a whole new meaning with the inauguration of Sextember! This month consisted of daily challenges that you and your spouse got to plan together on a special calendar in the Intimately Us app. Each challenge helped thousands of couples to grow closer to each other by prioritizing their relationships for a whole month. We loved hearing from couples how Sextember increased their intimacy in all aspects of their relationship!

The first and last challenge of Sextember was to take a before and after photo of you and your spouse. Below are some of the before and after photos couples shared with us. Seeing the change in countenance in these couples at the end of the Sextember challenge is truly inspiring! We hope seeing these photos and reading their stories will inspire you to continue to prioritize your relationship and work to improve intimacy in your marriage year round! And look forward to next September- we have a feeling Sextember will be returning for many years to come 😉

Just wanted to say thank you for this. I felt like a dork asking my husband if he wanted to do this, this month and he enthusiastically said “Yes!”

This month has helped us to get out of our rut with the same old, same old bedroom routine. We’ve been emboldened to venture so far out of our comfort zones to find new things to try (even a vibrator for the first time!) And we’ve been able to shed some of the horrible things we were taught about sex from our parents. 

A few of our “write your own challenges” have included things like just lay together and snuggle, naked movie night (looking forward to that. Not sure what movie we won’t be watching yet) and last night’s late dinner in bed with lingerie. Thank you so much for hosting this challenge. Our marriage thanks you.

Before Sextember- Sep 1 at 4am before we left for our jobs.

After Sextember- a few days after a baseball took a nasty hop and gave C. a black eye. The injury was not from this challenge! Lol. C & C

Sextember was such a great adventure. It was fun to plan and anticipate each encounter. It gave us ideas and provided the vehicle to talk often about our sex life. We look forward to our next Intimately Us event!

We have never done a challenge like this and had so much fun! We didn’t miss a day! Really liked that we could make our own challenges so we could focus on things we had been wanting to work on. Gave us the motivation we needed. S & L Nelson.

This was such a fun month considering 3 weeks of it was spent with one or both of us fighting covid. Brent is just finishing his quarantine tomorrow,  Oct 1st, thus we thought it fitting to wear our masks in our selfie. 

I’m pretty sure that we don’t look any younger because we were fighting the virus,  but the extra endorphins helped us recover quicker.

Thank you, 
B & D

We somehow ended up wearing the same “shirts” for both days! ? BEFORE photo taken the morning of 09/01. AFTER taken last night (9/30). This was a great challenge and I’m glad to say we did all 30 days! R & M

We truly hope these couples will inspire you to make each day great and use it as an opportunity to grow your relationships. Now go and Get Your Marriage On!

I love this app! My husband and I are such busy people, this helps us stop and make sure we show the love that we have for each other. I’d give 6 stars if I could!

This is by far the #1 sex app for Christian couples! My wife and I played the games like 5 times over the last week. Sparks are flying and we’ve never felt so close before. Thank you!
