I said intimacy but really what I wanted to say was sex. And I said better, but what I really meant was MORE.
Honesty. That title just seemed safer. Because I wanted you to open this blog. Because if I saw that title I probably would get on my high horse and say I don’t need to read that! But I wanna talk about something we aren’t ‘supposed’ to talk about…but is a real struggle that I know many of us grapple with…or have at some season in our lives.
Married 11 years. We waited til our wedding day to have sex. So honestly…when we started this journey we weren’t great at it. But we all know it gets better. With practice. And practice we did!
(Ha. This is so odd to type, but watch, this will be one of my most read blog posts!)
I believe that in marriage – sex is a beautiful glorious thing. And I believe that as a married woman I don’t have nearly as much of it as I should.
Kids. Work. Friends. Family. Laziness. You get it. I could literally go on but I think those are good enough.
Our every sexy night routine at the start of our marriage eventually tapered down to 5 nights then three and then that first three years of parenthood…I’m embarrassed to say once a week or even every other week was the norm (if at all), 2 was amazing and three times was a downright miracle.
Now that we are in years 5 of parenthood we are getting…have gotten better. I dont think we will ever be able to get back to those early days of marriage because life…but today I wanna share a few things that have helped us have better intimacy…more sex. (And can proudly shout from the rooftop that we are CONSISTENTLY 3X a week now…and you can too if you wanna)
You are not alone my friend. You and your boo are not failing. The tapering off is normal, the decreased passion is normal. BUT I am telling you it’s doesn’t have to be YOUR norm. Take a few notes and try something different. Not everything works for everyone but whatever you do – move towards making a change for you, for both of you!
Resonate with what you read above? Need a little something to reignite the spark for you and your boo? I’d love to spoil you guys in a couples boudoir session. The photo above is from mine earlier this year and it absolutely stoked the connection my hubby and I have. Email me! Or visit my website for more information.
