#45 - Let's Talk About Sex: Marriage Edition
Whether we acknowledge it or not, sex is more than just a physical act. In today’s episode, Billy and Joy discuss nine intimacy principles that impact every relationship and then they tee up a list of questions that should open the flow of communication. Take a listen and, more importantly, have a chat!
Talk about this:
- What eternal factors seem to affect our sex life the most … (schedule, low energy, distractions are a few suggestions)? What are some ideas to manage them?
- What from our past (individually or together) seems to affects our sex life the most? What are ideas to deal with them in a healthy way?
- What impact does body image plays into our sex life?
- With 10 being “best ever” and 1 being “very poor,” how would you rate our communication about the feelings / thoughts regarding our sex life? What are some ways that we can communicate better?
- What are some things you enjoy most about our sex life? What could I do to help you enjoy it more?
- Is there something you desire sexually that I can help fulfill?
- Are there moments you are uncomfortable sexually? If so, what can I do to help?
- What boundaries do we or should we have in place to protect our intimacy?
- What role do you think that our natural wirings (either as male, female, or simply individuals) play into our sexual desires or habits?
- How well does our sex life fit into your expectations? Are there things we need to do differently to better manage our expectations? If so, what are they?
