Just my opinion… February 23, 2008

There has been a lot of buzz about this church in Tampa doing a sex series. If you haven’t heard about it, just Google “30 day sex challenge” and you will find hundreds of articles about it. It’s getting national attention and many people are blogging with their opinions.

I thought I would share mine.

I am all about doing whatever it takes to bring the rate of divorce among Christians way down. I think the 30 day sex idea is good and it will probably help save a lot of marriages. But I can just tell that it was thought up by a man because I mean, duh, what man doesn’t want to have sex everyday? I don’t think I’d be off target if I said that the majority of women would be OK if they never had sex. Other things like affection and conversation are way important to us (at least for me, they are). Am I right ladies??

Personally I think having sex every day for 30 days a little overkill. I think it’s all about making the time for it and if you have to, plan it. At least, that’s what I’ve learned in the 2 1/2 years I’ve been married.

Whether you are married or single, I would definitely recommend going through the questionnaire they offer on their website. Joel and I sat down together and went through it for about an hour and a half. It was wonderful. I finally got to get some stuff off my chest that I’ve been wanting to say but didn’t know exactly how. He also got to say what he wanted. It might’ve been the best conversation we had in weeks. You find out what your emotional needs are and how your spouse can meet them. Go do it! They also offer a married/single guide for the 30 days. Each day asks a question and you journal about it. We’re going to do that, too.

As for whether we’re gonna do the challenge…well, that’s none of your business! 🙂

I was going back and forth on whether I should post something about this, but I decided I’m just gonna go for it. If it offends you, I am deeply sorry but I think it’s something the church should talk more about. I don’t always agree with the method or the marketing necessarily but I do agree with saving more marriages, so there ya go.
