Driving down the winding, wooded streets of Cornwall, New York, a woman’s voice projected from my car’s speakers as I listened to Focus on the Family. It was a voice that would change my sex life forever. Dr. Juli Slattery, the founder of Authentic Intimacy, discussed God’s design for sexual intimacy and how to fix intimacy problems in a marriage. I felt like I was in a sex-ed class all over again, but this time for adults.
Listening to Dr. Slattery, I had two significant revelations. One, I had no idea how ignorant I was about sex. Two, all my challenges in the bedroom were fixable! I wanted to experience sex the way she described it, and I was ready to start doing the work to get there. After years of learning from her podcast, Java with Juli, my sex life has never been more fulfilling. If you are ready to achieve intoxicating intimacy in your marriage, here are 5 fixable problems hindering you in the bedroom.
