I have 2 signed copies of Stripped Down: 13 Keys to Unlocking Intimacy in Your Marriage (aff link) by Tony & Alisa DiLorenzo of OneExtraordinaryMarriage. This is the book that my husband and I used for a marriage study. We gathered several couples, read a chapter or two a week and discussed how the material could apply to us. Several couples had some significant breakthroughs in communication and in working out difficult areas of their marriage. I think books like this are great for reading with your spouse because they make such a nice jumping off point for all kinds of discussions.
So the challenge: Leave a comment on this post with your ideas for “ways of inviting your husband to join you for sex.” Direct, indirect, funny, silly, serious, sexy, whatever. Your suggestions just need to be relatively doable and believable. (If you don’t see your post immediately, wait a bit because most posts will land in “pending” until I can get to them and approve them.)
Next Sunday (October 30th) I’ll ask my husband to give me two numbers (for example: 5 and 27) and the posters in those slots (5th and 27th posters) will win the books. I’ll announce the winners with Monday’s tip.
