When it comes to sex, are you and your spouse on the same page? I am not referring to whether you and your spouse want it, or how often. I am talking about that deep-down need as a couple to: connect sexually; build a relationship; bring two people together through sex; be vulnerable and get so close that you lose track of yourself.
Why’s it important to talk about sex?
Sex is a vital part of marriage. It’s not just physical intimacy, but emotional and spiritual as well. Couples who are open and honest about their sexual needs, wants, desires and fears have better marriages, more fulfilling sex lives, more intimate relationships and more satisfying sexual encounters.
Talking about sex in your marriage can help you prepare for what lies ahead. You may feel awkward at first, but talking about sex helps both spouses understand each other better. The more you talk about sex, the more comfortable you’ll become with each other and with having open conversations about such topics.
When couples have healthy communication, they are able to communicate their needs to each other without fear of judgment or rejection from their spouse. This allows them to express their desires freely without feeling embarrassed or ashamed when asking for something as simple as oral sex or wanting more foreplay before actual intercourse occurs between them both physically and mentally speaking!
The purpose of this article is to speak of sex in a positive light, offer advice on how to be open and honest with your spouse, approach marriage as a sexual union, and lastly the importance of physical intimacy in marriage and the benefits of sexual intimacy in marriage.
Many couples don’t talk about sex and intimacy, so they don’t know what it takes to have a great sexual relationship. Here are some of the things you need to do:
Communicate your sexual needs.
It’s important to communicate your sexual needs with your spouse because he or she may not know what you want or need in bed. This can lead to frustration on both sides. Communicating effectively will help you avoid this frustration and disappointment.
Sexual intimacy is an important part of marriage.
Sexual intimacy is so important for a couple’s overall relationship because it provides a safe place for them to be vulnerable with one another in ways that they can’t be with anyone else — even family members or friends. When couples are able to share their most intimate thoughts and feelings with each other through sex, they become closer emotionally as well as physically. This makes them feel safer in other aspects of their marriage too!
Marital sex is one of the most important things in life. It’s a major part of marriage and it can either make or break your relationship.
Sex is an important part of marriage and it’s something that both spouses need to agree on.
Sex is a natural, healthy and pleasurable activity. It is also a way to express your feelings and closeness to your spouse. Sex can and always should be a positive experience, but it can also be risky if you do not take proper precautions, or bring things into the bedroom and relationship that don’t belong there.

Here are some of the benefits of having sex:
Better sleep. Sex can help people sleep better because it releases the hormone oxytocin, which helps people feel more relaxed and happy. Oxytocin is also released during pregnancy and breastfeeding, which can help women fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.
Reduced stress levels. Although having sex does not cure stress, it can help reduce symptoms of stress such as headaches, muscle tension and depression.
Improved immunity system. The immune system is responsible for fighting off bacteria and viruses that cause illness in the body. Having sex can improve the function of your immune system by increasing levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA), an antibody that helps fight off colds and other illnesses by keeping harmful bacteria out of your body through mucus membranes like those in your nose or mouth.
Improved cardiovascular health. Having regular sex helps prevent coronary heart disease by lowering blood pressure, reducing cholesterol levels and improving circulation throughout the body while boosting endorphin production, which reduces pain.
Better overall marriage. Couples who have frequent sex typically have much better emotional intimacy as well and overall satisfaction in their marriage.
This importance of healthy sex in marriage cannot be overstated. Put a plan together with your spouse and discuss sex openly in your marriage and you will see great things happen in your relationship.
