Let’s Bring Sexy Back To Your Marriage Bed (Part 2)
Have your sexual encounters with your husband become a series of quickies? You know you should have sex but you’re just so tired, busy, or distracted all the time that sex just seems like one more thing to add to your to-do list.
Many wives will say they like sex when they take the time to enjoy it. But for most, life presses in, kids demand their time and attention, and sex just isn’t a priority.
So let’s look at some practical steps you can take when you long for more than just obligatory sex.
Caress him while you kiss him.
Whether you put your hands on your husband’s face–run your fingers up and down his arm–or play with the hair on the back of his neck, make it a point to touch him in a gentle way.
Whoa now, I hear what you’re thinking…you’re concerned if you kiss him in anything other than a quick peck on the lips, he will expect you to take him to bed.
Most likely he will hope for sex to be the happy ending to a romantic smooch. And why shouldn’t this be his desire?
You would do well to learn not to be irritated by his desire for you. Truth be known, it’s not his desire for you that may irritate you, but rather the long list of chores you still have to accomplish before you can even think about getting into bed at night. Am I right?*
Save your energy for the fireworks
Though your husband may be oblivious to the many items on your late night to-do list, if you asked him what he would prefer you accomplish on any given evening, I’m willing to bet he would say having you save your energy to enjoy sex with him would be at the top of his to-do list.**
So, look at that busy schedule of yours, and choose at one day next week where you are going to feed the kids cereal for dinner (in disposable bowls), maybe even have them skip their baths for one night (so the bedtime ritual can be simplified), and save your energy for a roll in the hay with your man. And bring sexy back to your marriage bed…You won’t regret it!
