Today author Sheila Wray Gregoire launched her "29 Days to Great Sex" blog series. Over the next 28 days, Sheila will blog a new tip each day that will help married couples "make sex stupendous."
Sheila kicked off the series with her post, "Day 1: The Act of Marriage." Here's an excerpt:
Sex is the acting out of everything that marriage is. We become vulnerable with one another. We become naked with one another completely — and that means real intimacy, not just physical intimacy. We cherish each other. We protect each other. But we also have a ton of fun with each other! ...
[One problem] is that when we do finally get married and commit to someone, we almost stop having sex. Or at least we have it rather infrequently. In surveys I took for my book, The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex, I found that 40% of couples made love less than once a week. We’re just not connecting that often.
So the "act of marriage," that act that can be so wonderful, and so fun, and so significant, often isn't even happening.
I recommend you read more of the post. Then subscribe to Sheila's blog to receive the rest of the series in your email inbox.
