"Managing Sexpectations" pt.1
This is one of those unspoken topics, one that is close to my heart and one that I don't think gets much attention, especially within the Christian circles. I'm talking about SEX (ba-by!). For something that is so sacred and ordained by the good Lord, I've found it's rarely spoken about, especially in church. I, like many other Christian guys I know, thought as soon as I got married, that was it - the chains were off! From now on, it will be sex on tap every day for the remainder of my days. Unfortunately, I quickly discovered that was not to be my reality at all.
I discovered a word called "libido" and how my wife and I differed in this area causing quite a lot of bedroom debate when I'd much rather be in the bedroom mating. Unknown to me at the time, I've found that this is not is not just my own solitary experience but a common one for a number of Christian men. Are you one of them? In the next few weeks, I would like to share some of the challenges, frustrations, rejections and revelations that I and others like me have come across during our time in marriage. Our hope is that it might help you navigate you way around this delicate area and manage your "sexpectations" on this journey. Stay tuned because it's about to get real!
