Quick thought for Sunday:
It’s always fun to look at some of the ways people get to our site. What we have learned is that we get lots of visits from people who are looking for ways to initiate sex with their spouses. Some of the phrases people use are really interesting like “I am uncomfortable initiating sex with my wife“, “how to initiate sex with husband“, “how to get your husbands attention sexually“, “why dont wives initiate sex?” Just to point out a few.
Today, I wanted to offer 3 Quick Tips for folks who need help initiating sex with their spouse. (More great thoughts on sexual intimacy for married couples are coming soon – so sign up to get updates from Stupendous Marriage)
1. Use Signals To Alert Your Spouse You Are In The Mood.
Sometimes there is a stigma – or pressure with who starts what, when. So, use a signal. A code word, a candle lit on the table , a familiar love song, a certain piece of clothing, a favorite meal, a certain dessert, a rose in a vase displayed on the table. You decide what the signal is, and what it means.
2. Be Direct.
Instead of hemming and hawing, say, “I would like to be intimate with you, when can we connect to make that happen?” Or just show up naked.
3. Take Turns.
If you find that one of you initiates more often than the other, balance it out by taking turns. Tony and Alisa DiLorenzo suggest you break the week up 3/3/1 . You have 3 days to initiate sex and so does your spouse (and one day off). At least once during your 3 days, step up and make something happen in the intimacy department. Their book deals with all types of intimacy. (aff link)
