Inspired by Sexuary




"After reading your blog post and feeling VERY convicted by my study of Paul and Corinthians this week I did something I rarely, ok never do anymore. Got out of the shower and surprised [my husband] with a little morning quicky.
Since our child's birth almost two years ago it has been misery in that department. One of the reasons for my hysterectomy in the fall. Since that surgery, I have been so hesitant. Anyway...as you can imagine [my husband] and I have been at odds for months. His job keeps him away from home several days each week. It has been so stressful, then add in [our child with special needs] and all the therapies...well you know that drill. Anyway...all that to say, I have one happy guy this morning and I am doing pretty good too. I am resolving to make the decision to try to be more giving and open and see what happens. So thank you!"

"Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I always look forward to your blog posts. Sexuary hasn't just been about the XXX, but honesty and communication. It's forced us to add a little fire to our daily lives and break the routine. You're like the modern day Gloria Steinem."

"I'm a long time lurker of your blog and look forward to reading everything you post. My hubby of just over a year and I have been very inspired by Sexuary this year and have really amped up the sexy time in spite of colds. We also have my 17 year old step son, his girlfriend, and their 8 month old baby living with us so it's a big ball of sexy time around our house - NOT! Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for your "Booty" post you wrote the other day. Hubby and I have experimented in the past with this. I always liked it physically but couldn't get the whole Super-Christian 'This is so wrong and not the way God intended it' out of my head. So, last night, I opened up my mind and kicked the voices out. Let's just say, I was very satisfied with the result (and the Husband was very happy too)! Thanks so much for your inspiration!"

"Don't know quite how to thank you for Sexuary. These have been the hardest nine months of our marriage. I don't say that lightly considering we walked through the challenge of adultery in 1994. Adopting two children in 2 years is hard. Adopting two children with RAD sucks. We have really struggled and just began attachment therapy last month. I was starting to see some blue skies through the black clouds and then came Sexuary!! The sky has never been bluer. Ok that might be a bit of an exaggeration but WOW sex sure does help. Thanks for provoking me and challenging me. We are actually leaving to go away tomorrow for 30 hours alone. I CAN'T WAIT!!! I have actually been thinking about sex daily and that isn't something that I have done monthly the past nine months. So thanks again and my husband thanks you also!!"

"My husband was sexually abused as a child. I was sexually, physically, and mentally abused in a relationship as a teenager. Neither of us came from families that addressed our trauma. Then we got married and as you might expect sex has been an issue for us! We've had sex for six days straight, which was double our record before, including the honeymoon. After six days we both needed a break from the "expected to" feeling and so we're taking one. We plan to finish the month with another four or five days in a row. I can honestly hardly believe it, but it's true and it's good."

It is tough to put sex anywhere near the agenda at the moment. Between expressing milk for my special needs baby, cleaning up her blood-flecked vomit, waiting for the phone to ring to tell us her surgery date, taking care of our five older kids who all have their own big feelings about what is happening - a slow day usually contains a tough choice between sleep and personal hygiene. Sexury has not been very sexy for us - half of it we were not even been in the same state - but it has been a reminder that sex needs to be put on our agenda and we need to MAKE time and room. For us as a couple to grieve and cling and celebrate and love - to say some of the million things on our hearts that there are no words for. And for me as an individual to remember I am a sexy-ass woman who is the owner-driver of one incredible body that has borne six amazing children, loves one beautiful man and has the right to enjoy and celebrate every sexy curve, silvery stretch mark and thrilling sensation.

We JUST HAPPENED to be doing study of the book of Songs at our church this month also.

So our friends that don't go to church with us not only see those posts, but they've been seeing our Sexuary ones too.

They think we are sex-crazed. And, well, plain crazy too.

But that's okay with us.

I had several couples from church jump in on the Sexuary with us. It's been awesome being able to talk to them openly about it.
