080: How to Have Better Sex in Marriage (feat. Chris & Megan Rea)

Let’s cut right to the chase. Because it’s February. And because cupid is on the move, I’ll just say it: God wants you to have amazing sex. He designed it. And He wants you to enjoy it in the covenant of marriage. But here’s the thing—and this is why we’re even talking about it today—culture has hijacked sex and prescribed it through the jaded, broken, convoluted lens of 50 Shades of Grey and mass media as a whole. And just because people asked, we’re not talking about technique today. That’s not even close to the focus. Instead we’re talking about the original design and intent for this incredible God-given gift to married couples. Joining me today are relationship coaches, speakers, and founders of NoSmallLife, Chris and Megan Rea. And today, we are talking about how to have better sex in your marriage. But our focus is what happens way before the bedroom. Folks, we shouldn’t be ashamed to talk about sex. In fact, I believe if more married couples engaged in open, healthy, appropriate conversation with their kids, we’d chip away at the polluted, skewed counterfeit that culture is propagating each and every day. Our conversation is both serious and light-hearted. We laugh. We joke. We have fun. But know this: our goal is to celebrate and promote the original design God intended for marriage. Singles, take notes. File them away in a time capsule for use in the future.
