XXX: THE EMAIL THAT MADE ONE HUSBAND NEVER WANT TO WATCH IT AGAIN!

Wow, this topic just came out of nowhere, didn't it? Well, you see, I spend some time each week talking with couples openly and honestly about sex (or lack thereof) in marriage and relationships on a number of platforms. Sex has never been a topic I find difficult to talk about and I feel that it is important for couples to communicate effectively and honestly about sex at all times. With that said - there are two recurring issues that I have frequently heard about from couples over the past 10+ years. 1. spouses/partners who feel there is not enough sex in their bedroom; and 2. wives/partners who lament their husband's/partner's porno watching. Often neither of the pair can understand the other or why they do what they do or feel the way they feel in relation to sex. Frequently also, one cannot determine why the other refuses sex on most occasions, and on the other hand one of the pair is cautious about their significant other watching triple x videos. And who could blame either of the two? Today, we are going to touch briefly about spouses/partners who sometimes opt to enjoy a blue movie (porn video); and a quirky way the husband of a friend of mine had his porn watching habits instantly ended (yikes!).

MY [EX]HUSBAND TRIED TO KILL ME: PRAYER SAVED MY LIFE

Today I am feeling so grateful for so many wonderful reasons - but my top reasons are life and health and the opportunity to spend today with my seven unique and wonderful daughters. I am happy to be at home with no where to go and to spend time reflecting on how far my life has come from the sadness and darkness it was less than a decade ago. Sex, drugs, alcohol and severe domestic violence threatened to take my life on multiple occasions. I lived confused and depressed - nothing ever went right and one night things got much worst... "My moment of realization came the night I screamed out to God to save my life as my ex-husband stood on my back while I lay face-down in a lily pond he had thrown me in to. I can hardly remember anything except praying for life as my head was under the murky water. Somehow I did lift my head and saw three of my daughters standing in the doorway helpless and crying as he proceeded to hold a post and jump on my back a few times shoving me to the bottom."...

TALKING TO TEEN GIRLS: SEX AND SELF-WORTH

Talking to teens about sex is never an easy topic for most parents but it is one of the most important discussions we must have. In this short post I chose to share some encouragement for mommas who are preparing to or worrying about the day they have to open up and talk to their daughters about sex.
