Are you missing sex with your spouse lately?
When you are too busy at work, raising a family, and running through your responsibilities at home, sex becomes a tiresome activity for you and your spouse.
What’s worse is that sex does not excite you anymore because you have been too familiar with it.
It’s time to spice it up!
According to Marriage.com in their article entitled 10 Health Benefits of Having Sex with Your Spouse Frequently, frequent sex with your spouse can actually help you reduce stress, lower blood pressure, boost immunity, have better sleep, prevent heart attack or stroke, drive away depression, help look younger and attractive, and improve self-esteem.
Having said that, below are strategies from Beyond Small Talk hosts Peter and Christine Kairuz that will help you solve common sex problems in your marriage:
1. Wives, do not withhold your body from your spouse. Freshen up. Be ready for your spouse.
Take a shower. Brush your teeth. Spray on his favorite scent. Dress sexy for him. Your mindset should always be to prepare and make yourself beautiful and attractive before your husband comes home. Do not withhold your bodies from each other.
2. Husbands, build up the momentum.
Don’t just do it right away. You need to lay a foundation first. Begin by sending sweet and meaningful messages to her before you make love at night. Romance her. Communicate with her. Wives love it when they are being pursued.
3. Husbands, stay with your wife after making love.
Don’t just disappear or watch TV after sex. Continue to talk to her and romance her. Shower her with kisses and cuddle her. Don’t rush. Take time to enjoy each other’s presence.
4. Enjoy making love with your spouse.
“Especially for young married couples, you have no excuse not to have sex,” says Peter Kairuz.
You should be in total energy and enjoy the moment when making love with your spouse.
5. For the older married couples, exercise and take supplements.
Your age should not hinder you from enjoying sex with your partner. Do some exercises like push-ups and sit-ups to strengthen your muscles for better sex. Take vitamins and supplements to boost your sex drive.
Sex is the highest expression of love with your spouse. It is a sacred and beautiful gift from God that’s meant to be enjoyed between married couples.
As it says in 1 Corinthians 7:4-5 NKJV, “The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise, the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.”
