2012 Annual Review

Well, 2013 has been here for nearly a month now and I had intended on doing a “year in review” type post for a while now, just never got around to doing it. It’s been a year and 5 days since I started this blog,

How Sex Impacts the Rest of My Life

We had a pretty rough Christmas break in 2012.  December started with everyone in the family getting colds, which, with 4 kids is a fairly regular event, nothing new.  We all got over it, except my wife.  Hers persisted for weeks.  She went to the

What Happened To Sex When Christianity Split From Judaism?

I tend to have interests that tend to borderline on are obsessions for short periods of time, sometimes a few weeks, sometimes a quarter, sometimes 6 months.  But the two main interests of my life are Theology and Sexuality.  Lately, I’ve been delving into Hebrew, I

What If Your Spouse Doesn’t Think Watching Arousing Scenes Is A Problem?

I received this question in the comments on the post What Do I Do If I Get Turned On By Someone/Something Other Than My Spouse? If you knew your spouse was deliberately looking at stuff to get aroused, but goes to you for sex, would you refuse

Why Does My Husband Want Sex In The Morning?

I’ve seen this question floating around.  Why is it that men like sex in the morning?  It drives a lot of women absolutely crazy, because they wake up in the morning feeling groggy, haven’t done their makeup, they have bed-head, etc., etc.,  basically, not feeling
