I cam across an article that I found very interesting.  The writer was very candid about her intimate relationship with her husband.  Here is an excerpt:

“I am a conservative Christian wife and mother and I love sex. Every Sunday morning, I attend church. Every school morning, I take my son to school. Every weekday afternoon, I kiss my husband when he gets home from work. Every evening, I cook supper for my family, and almost every night, I close my bedroom door to partake in my favorite cardio activity: sex.

While I proclaim boldly that I love sex, many of my Christian female friends do not. In fact, when I bring up my sexual appetite and prowess, my friends react like children and giggle or stare at me in dismay. My Christian friends aren't the only ones who act surprised when I vocalize my love of sex.

Somehow it has become an oxymoron to be a Christian woman and sexual. Often times the church encourages silence on issues regarding sex. God wants us to celebrate sex.”

So this brings me to my question:  Do you have any problems  discussing your sex life with friends?  Or is it a subject matter that should remain behind closed doors?

    • It’s true that many women feel apprehensive discussing sex in their bedroom, some open up when they hear other women participate in conversations, some make nasty comments and act prudish.  

      One of my very prudish friends and I had a discussion that turned on the topic of  sex. After few minutes she proclaimed: “Sex is like cereal“. I was shocked to hear such comparison, I asked “how so?“and she said: “It’s the same thing every morning“.

      Well....I set her down and we had a very long talk....she has changed her mind since but that took years I attribute her change of heart and mind to turning 40 which she finally did last year.

    • There is nothing incongruous about being Christian and enjoying sex.  The subject is often taboo, depending on how it was addressed in the nuclear family.  Some people just can’t open up and discuss it. When I was married, I had some friends with whom I could discuss this and others with whom I could not.  It (sex) is nothing to be ashamed of (it’s the way God created the male-female dynamic) but this topic does strike a sensitive nerve with some women.
