"Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life."
- Mark Twain
That's a tall order right there, but we are here to share with you what you and your spouse can do to increase intimacy in your marriage in seven days. Yep, you read that right, seven days.
Recently, Lifetime launched their newest show 7 Days of Sex. The premise of the show is for couples to have sex for 7 days straight, which in turn could have an impact in their marriage.
We are here to share with you that we have done three 7 Days of Sex Challenges! One each year for the last three years and we are planning our fourth as we write. Our first challenge was the 60 Days of Sex Challenge where we completed 40 out of 60 days. Talk about putting ourselves out there to each other. The 60 day challenge did just this. Each challenge has been a learning experience that has allowed our marriage to flourish and grow.
Your marriage can grow too if you follow these three simple steps to the fastest way to increase intimacy in your marrage.
Commit to doing the 7 Days of Sex Challenge together.
This is huge. The two of you need to take time to talk about this and commit to doing it no matter what. Both of you need to grab your calendars and determine what can be wiped off for the week you taken on your challenge. Many times the reason we are not sexually intimate is that we have too many things going on. During this week you can take a break from everything else and focus in on each other.
Spice up your love life.
If you been married for any length of time you've probably have been in a sexual rut at one point and time. We've been there many of times in our 15 years of marriage. What we have learned during each of our challenges is that we were having sex so often that we wanted to spice up the bedroom. Live out what you desire during this time. Try something new and most of all have fun.
Talk, talk, and then talk some more.
As married couples we get very good at talking about the surface stuff. When it comes to have an amazing sex life the surface talk doesn't cut it.
We want to be emotionally tied to our spouse so that we can give our all to them in bed. During our four challenges we have come to realize that we need to leave time, 30-45 minutes, each day to talk. This could be at one time or broken up throughout the day.
This is deep intimate conversations that allow us to connect emotionally. When we talk like this we are then able to fully engage ourselves sexually. Is this tough at time? Sure is, but it is also the most rewarding.
Having sex for 7 days straight can increase the intimacy in your marriage faster than you expect. Take each of these tips, put them to good use, and watch the fireworks explode.
