“Challenges are what make life interesting, overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” —Joshua J. Marine

sex challenges

With all the different challenges that life offers, have you ever considered a sex challenge? You may have thought about it and yet a common question is…

Is it only about the sex?

The honest answer is yes and no. 

Fundamentally, sex challenges are about having sex for a set period of time. For example, it could be 7 days, 14 days, 30 days, 60 days or more. The length depends on what the two of you agree on.

From day one, there is a commitment to sexual intimacy. But once you start, you’ll begin to realize that at its core, it’s more than just having sex.

Emotional, physical, spiritual, financial, and recreational intimacies can all grow during a sex challenge. Why?

Because when you both engage, it’s about more than just sex. It’s about who you are as a couple and how you are making one another a priority.

But before you even consider doing sex challenges, you need to know what you desire in your marriage beyond just having sex.

Sex challenges always have a “reason” behind them. So what’s yours?

Sharing the reason behind the challenge is a great conversation starter with your spouse.

For example, how do you think the challenge will strengthen your marriage? What intimacies do you see being impacted?

Or how will the two of you get closer during this time? What will romance look like?

Sharing your heart is a way to build the emotional connection around this physical act.

As you embark on a challenge, be open to the changes a challenge will ask you to make in your life. Making that time together a priority may have you evaluating how you tend to spend your time. You may start making decisions on what you are doing or saying so that your spouse feels loved, cherished, and desired. 

Once you’ve thought about your why, the two of you have talked about expectations, and you are ready to make each other a priority, it’s time to consider something like the 30 day sex challenge. You’ll be amazed at what 30 days can do for your marriage!
