At times it’s easy to fall into a rut.

Falling into a rut happens for a lot of reasons. Mainly because it’s comfortable there; it’s easier to go with the flow, or maybe you don’t want to rock the boat.

Well, it’s time to get out of that rut and start talking about sex with your spouse. It’s an important conversation. 

You may have been raised to think that sex is something that you shouldn’t talk about. 

But you should know that not having those conversations is more about your parents being uncomfortable bringing it up than it being something you shouldn’t do. 

Not having these conversations may have left you in a situation where you’ve felt you it was solely upon you to figure it all out.

There is also the fact that you may have been taught funny terms to discuss body parts, which in reality heightens the embarrassment and awkwardness in talking about sex.

Jokes about sex and countless innuendos more than likely are not helping you either. 

And at the end of the day, there is the awkward assumption between you and your spouse that you’re married and should be having sex.

But where do you learn about talking about sex and intimacy in marriage?

You may have realized that our society as a whole has not equipped those who have or are getting married. When you get out of your comfort zone to talk about this area, there comes a freedom to experience the sexual intimacy with the one you said “I do” to.

Each of you came to your marriage with different experiences when it comes to intimacy, physical connection, and sex. There is not a one size fit all guide that can be created because of those differences. 

And yet, when you and your spouse get out of your comfort zone and start talking about sex, this vital component of your marriage is unlocked. Today is the day for the two of you to break down the stigma around talking about sex in your marriage.
