Works For Me Wednesday- Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby February 26, 2008

worksformewednesday.jpg More sex talk for you. Well, if you are coming here by way of Rocks In My Dryer, you may not realize, we have been talkin’ bout sex around here. For 20 weeks to be exact. See I think we Christian wives need to be havin’ more sex with our hubbies so I threw down the gauntlet and my readers stepped up to the plate (how’s that for a mixed metaphor). Well, some of my readers, but I know there are some of you out there who are still leavin’ your hubbies high and dry.

So first, 20 weeks of challenges and then I am throwin’ down a big huge challenge at the end. Newbies, pick a week that looks good and jump in. Veterans, hang onto your hat for the ending.

Week 1: Fix Your Boudoir

Week 2: Mama Needs a New Pair of Panties

Week 3: How Illuminating!

Week 4: Shock and Awe

Week 5: Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Fun

Week 6: When in France

Week 7: How Bout Something a Little Racy (and Lacy)?

Week 8: Take it Off!

Week 9: Tell Him What You Want

Week 10: A Weekend Getaway

Week 11: Shake It Up Baby Now!

Week 12: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Week 13: Let’s Get Physical

Week 14: A Challenge of Purity

Week 15: A Change in Scenery

Week 16:Try a Nooner

Week 17: I Feel Like Making Love (On Sunday at 10:30)

Week 18: Who Knew the Brain Could be so Sexy?

Week 19: Laughter, The Best Aphrodisiac

Week 20: The Grand Finale!

Ok, here is the graduate level challenge. I mentioned it in week 20, but I have decided to take the 30 day challenge. The hubby doesn’t know, so he will be so shocked when this baby lands in his inbox he might just have a heart attack. Actually if you see him skipping through work tomorrow, that means he has just read my blog.

Anyway, I know a few of my regular readers are game. How about you? I am not gonna lie. I am a little scared? That’s a lot of sex on nights when I will probably be so tired I will just want to curl up in a ball and drift off to sleep. But, I got friends doin’ this challenge who just had babies and friends competing with other friends to see who can have the most sex in 30 days. The competitive nature in me just has to jump in and not let myself get “out challenged.” So the new challenge has begun…are you in?

For more (G rated) ideas, head over to Rocks In My Dryer.

    wow, that *is* ambitious! good luck.

  2. Lady Why Says:

    Wow! This is quite a Works for Me Wednesday post! Interesting reading for sure!

  3. Kathy in WA Says:

    This is such a wonderful series! Thank you for helping Christian wives to take this area more seriously and encouraging us to be exciting and vibrant in this area of our lives.

    You’re awesome!

  4. everychapter Says:

    Brilliant, well I might have joined you but I have a baby due in two weeks so maybe I’ll just mark this blog for later reading- like in 8 to 10 weeks! Good luck. 🙂

  5. pamelotta Says:

    I don’t think I’ll be competing on this one. My husband is scheduled for a vasectomy in April and I’m not on the pill! Just over the counter methods so I don’t think I want to chance 30 days straight with a success rate of only 94%!

    I’ll do other “things” for my hubby and he’ll be just fine!

    Great idea, by the way.

  6. I won’t be working on this challenge, but best of luck to you!

  7. Jenn Says:

    Can I say that I have bookmarked this post? Be back soon! ;o)

  8. Wow- what a way to start the morning. I can’t wait to dig a little deeper (I’m sure my husband will be glad too)!

    Thanks for a great WFMW- maybe it should be titled WFHM- Works for HIM Wednesday! hee hee!

  9. Jan Says:

    I also found your post from Rocks in My Dryer and am really impressed that you have the courage to write about such an important topic. As a woman in my 50’s who has been married for 30 years with two grown children and a grandson, I know the importance sex plays in a marriage. Even now (at my advanced age!) sex is an important part of our marriage. And so much easier with no kids around! This is great advice for all women and they should take it seriously. But have fun too!

  10. Susan Says:

    All right! My hubby wouldn’t complain. Will have to check this out.

  11. Melissa Says:

    This certainly caught my eye. I will have to come back and do some more reading:) My husband is currently working out of town and is gone during the week. Our weekend time is precious, but with two children, it is so hard to steal even a few moments away!

  12. Char Says:

    Good luck with this one. That’s a whole lot of sex, I don’t know if I’m brave enough to do that challenge!

  13. mom2fur Says:

    Wonderful! And ha, ha…you knew the title next to your name would get people over here, I bet!
    After 35+ years together, I’m still romantically in love with my husband. I’m going to peruse your essays, because we can always learn something new…even old ladies of 52 like me!

  14. Jessica Says:

    All these “brave” comments make me think that it is my head that keeps me from saying yes. Not an actual hardship – like teething babies. hmmmm….. Still thinking.

  15. Christy Says:

    Love it! I’m doing a 30-day series “Spice Up Your Marriage” at my blog … but THIS takes the cake. Great job! I’ll be reading your challenge over the next couple of days.

  16. Nikki Says:

    Wow. I just read every single week.

  17. Linda Says:

    Baw Chicka Baw Waw!
    Great post indeed!

  18. Sandy M Says:

    OK, I’m in. Taking on this challenge.

  19. Not to shamelessly plug myself (okay, I guess that’s what I’m doing), but one of my books is called Is That All He Thinks About? (Harvest House, 2007). It’s a super-fun read, full of great ideas, based on Scripture.

    30 day sex marathon. YOWZERS. 🙂

  20. Kristen M. Says:

    I saw the title of your post and my mind went instantly to the “30 Day Challenge.”

  21. Meshellyn Says:

    Very ambitious, but great! I had my husband print up the worksheets the other day and he was pretty excited, too bad he caught the flu the very next day!

  22. Devon Says:

    I, too, have it on my heart to help women feel better about sex and to have more positive attitudes about it in general. I think that too many wives think of it as a “chore” rather than a blessing. I think too many wives think of it as something for the husband, when it can be so much more than that. I’m not sure if I’m up to every night…WHEW! That is intimidating! BUT, I do think that if women even did the “double it” thing and then made it a goal to double every few weeks or every month or something, all of our hubbies would be walking with their heads held a little higher. BUT, why shouldn’t that make us wives walk with our heads a little higher, too? SO, I think I’ll do the doubling challenge and then build from there. 🙂 I’m in!

  23. Thanks for the okay to plug my book. 🙂 I just told my hubby about the challenge. His eyes lit up like nobody’s business. So I’m in too!

  24. MKLiquidator Says:

    *SHOUT OUT* to a fellow former Iowan.

    OT: thanks for commenting on my blog! If you e-mail me, I’ll share which part of blackhole, Iowa I belong to.

  25. Tricia Says:

    We watched a news clip on the challenge this past weekend. My husband sooooo wants to do this!! LOL

    Me…. not so certain.

  26. Llama Momma Says:

    I’ve been reading about this challenge. It sounds so interesting. Honestly, my first thought? Some man must have come up with it. I mean, really. 30 days in a row? What about your cycle??

    More power to you…

  27. Stacy Says:

    We started the 30 day challenge 4 days ago and it’s been a great 4 days, lemme tell you. I can’t wait to read through the back weeks of your challenge and get started on those!

    Kudos to you for having the courage to blog about it. I love that Christians are opening up about sex. It’s an awesome gift from God!

  28. I am not one who is inclined to discuss my sex life, so I won’t comment on whether or not to take your last challenge but I will say that I think this has been an awesome thing you have done here!!

  29. Krysty Says:

    Yes! You go girl! I’m not jumping in the challenge quite yet…but wanted to ward off your fears about the b.c. method. That’s NEVER happened to us before…another confirmation it’s God’s message. Like you said, God knows your plans, heart and motives in doing this for your hubby, so pray that He will bless you guys and keep the swimmies away. lol. Laughed at “he’ll be so shocked when this baby lands in his inbox…” I was reading the “baby” in a literal way based on your comment…again, no fears.
    Love the seasoned women’s comments…excellent to hear.

  30. lifeafterbaby Says:

    I like it. I love it. I want some more of it. I’m sad to see this series go.

  31. Very brave of you and I can’t wait to read all your posts.

    I’m not blogging about my sex life but good for you 🙂

  32. I’ve just discovered your blog, and this has been a terrific find. Here’s the funny thing: I’m an American who lives in a conservative Middle Eastern country with a tight censor on websites. I was able to access yours, but I cannot actually access the Relevant Church site or their 30 Day Challenge site. It’s blocked.

    Other funny thing: I’m returning to the States for 4 months to have our second baby, and my husband will only be in the States with me for 6 weeks of those four months.

    So much for practicing all this great stuff! Ha! I’m bookmarking YOUR challenge, however, and when I can actually read it back in the States, I will.

    God bless.

  33. Awesome. Our church just had a six week series entitled “Thank God for Sex!” and it included many topics that you have highlighted in your challenge. It’s such a private topic but so important for a healthy marriage – although it can also be difficult when you have lots of little children running about and are so exhausted you can’t see straight. We’ve got 4 under 4, including an 8-month old that I’m nursing and sex is the LAST thing on my mind.

    Must do something about that.

    Maybe tomorrow…
