Jill has been challenging us to step up our game when it comes to intimacy with our mates. In this week’s illuminating challenge, she really raises cranks up the wattage!
Last week’s challenge got me thinking about how much of a factor self image is in our marital sex lives. Let’s just admit that there isn’t a whole lot sexy about the post baby body. A flabby tummy, stretch marks, saggy boobs, the list goes on.
I once heard a speaker at a marital conference say, “When wives are naked they are thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, I am so fat (flat, ugly, flabby, etc).’, while their husbands are thinking, ‘Holy cow my wife is naked and I get to have sex!’”
Seriously ladies we need to cut ourselves some slack and give our hubbies some credit. I will admit I am shocked sometimes my hubby still finds me sexy, but for some reason he does. I would bet a large amount of cash that your hubby does also (wait, you not me…that would be very wrong).
So this week’s challenge, I will admit may be difficult for many of us. Your first two weeks were easy though so lets step it up a bit. Are you ready…have sex with the lights on. Most women I know typically prefer it to be so dark they can’t even see their hand in front their face, but men are visual creatures. They were created by God to be that way. So let’s put aside our own insecurities and enjoy our husband’s enjoyment of us.
