The Marriage ABCs – S for Sex and Sexuality


naked

It’s the subject we can’t avoid.  SEX!  It’s the most talked about subject, yet, it is the most embarrassing and most misunderstood.  A lot of the embarrassment and misunderstanding is to do with those who feel they are in power or control, communicating false messages to those, who feel or are made to feel powerless about this thing called sex.  And for a lack of knowledge, and understanding, the people perish indeed.

Marriages perish for a lack of knowledge, understanding and wisdom concerning sex.  For most of their lives, people are told to shy away from anything sexual, and given the impression that sex is a bad thing.  If and when they talk about it, they do it secretly…because it is only the bad people who talk about sex openly…so they are told.  And so people are not prepared to deal with sex in their marriage in a healthy way…

There has been some good reason for the scandal and fear that surrounds sex, because sex has been abused for almost as long as it has been practiced.  People have misunderstood sex, and made it a selfish venture, when it was always supposed to be the expression of true love…

  1. Shame is a powerful weapon indeed! I have recently purchased a book to help my husband and I in our sex life, because I have struggled ever since we were married to consistently enjoy sex. In my experience it is difficult for politically conservative christians to admit it when we have issues with sex in our marriage, because people who have a grudge against religious people are often waiting to jump on our flaws, and they are often convinced that married conservative Christians MUST have boring sex lives by default. Such shame tactics make it difficult to talk honestly about sex, and it has hindered my ability to be honest with even myself about it.

    But I’ll let you in on a little secret I’ve found since reading this book called Slow Sex. The “boringness” of Christian ideals for sexual expression are actually pretty close to getting it right. The author of this book makes it very clear that fulfilling sex is not about adding more, but about taking away the extra. It’s about stripping sex down to the bare essentials and then building it up again between yourself and your spouse (author uses partner, I shall specify with spouse).

    Ah! I could talk so much about sex! It is a beautiful thing which has been deeply misunderstood! Thank you for being unafraid to write about it. 🙂
