Dear married sisters— Mountain Housewife🌷 (@mtnhousewife) May 13, 2022
You simply cannot afford to be anything except over-the-top-sex-positive with your husband. 🌷
10) Connect before sex.
Sexy Time is more than a physical connection.— Stu Gray 🙌 (@stugray) May 9, 2022
It's an emotional and spiritual connection too.
If those last 2 are lacking (before sexy time)
Then sexy time will likely feel like a chore, icky, or won't happen at all.
11) Listen to understand.

12) Value your spouse.
