ANNOUNCING THE 7 DAYS OF SEX CHALLENGE

We are excited to have you join us for the 1st Annual ONE Extraordinary Marriage 7 Days of Sex Challenge!

As this year rolls by faster than the last, Alisa and I have decided once again to have sex for 7 days straight leading up to our church’s marriage retreat.

Over the past 5 months we have heard from many of you that you would like to do a 7 Days of Sex Challenge, but are not quite sure if you and your spouse would be ready for such a challenge.

Well, it’s time to stop thinking about having sex for 7 days straight and join us from June 6th to June 12th, 2010 as the ONE Community comes together to make our bed sheets and our marriages shake with enjoyment.

  • Have you heard us talk about our 60 Days of Sex and thought “I wonder if we could do that?”
  • Has your marriage lost some of the spark because life gets in the way? We’re talking about bills, jobs, and all of the other commitments you both have.
  • Are you ready to make a change in your physical intimacy that would push the limits of what you’ve done sexually in your marriage?
  • Are you excited about this challenge, but don’t know what to do.  You’ve come to the right place…

 

Make sure to listen to Episode 013 – The Difference One Week Can Make in Your Marriage to help you wrap you mind around having sex for 7 days straight.

What is the 7 Days of Sex Challenge?

At the most basic level it is you and your spouse having sex for 7 days straight from June 6th to June 12th, 2010.  But it really is so much more than just sex.

  • This is an opportunity for you and your spouse to really focus on each other and make intimacy a priority in your marriage.
  • This is a chance to take your communication to the next level as you plan each day’s rendezvous and negotiate through life as well.
  • It’s a time for you to get creative-let’s face it, having sex in the same place, same position and at the same time of day for seven days straight will get a little boring.
  • Use this challenge as a way to break out of your routines and try something new, romantic, and different.

Ultimately the 7 Days of Sex Challenge is a way for you and your spouse to get Stripped Down before each other and ignite the intimacy in your marriage, for these 7 days and well into the future.

7 Days of Sex Challenge Book Kindle Edition

Why Now?

Since we launched the ONE Extraordinary Marriage podcast and started sharing our story, we have heard from a number of people that they don’t know if they could ever do what we did (40 out of 60 days).  To be honest, we’re not even sure we could attempt the 60 Days of Sex again (That’s Alisa talking, I’m up for it)!  We found that 7 days is a lot easier to think about and to work into our schedule.   Some of you have shared that you were able to do 3-4 days in a row and then life got in the way.  As our community has grown we are constantly aware of the tremendous amount of support and encouragement you provide to one another. We feel that the time is right to launch an effort where everyone who attempts the 7 Days of Sex Challenge can do it with the support and encouragement from the ONE Community.

4.  You will have the support and encouragement from the ONE Community going through this amazing experience.  It’s much easier to embark on an adventure with support and community than to do it by yourself.
