It’s Week One of the Date Your Wife Podcast, so you know what that means: SEX. Married co-hosts Garrett and Danielle share from their own perspective what sex really means to them, offering up tips for a healthy sex life that they have discovered within their own lives, tackling topics that are sometimes considered taboo in more traditional settings regarding marriage.


In this Week’s Episode….

Point #1: Middle Initials to Segue into the Background of Taboo Sex

  • Garrett and Danielle share their backstories behind sex, not having sex with each other until marriage due to a strict Christian religious background.
  • Regardless of the type of approach that both were taught, they found that they discovered sex together, creating a rhythm with each other, taking a very different approach with their own children.

QUESTION:

Which parent should be having the talk with their children? Should it be gender specific?

 

Point #2: Surrendering to Tough Conversations About Sex in Marriage

  • Even after marriage, the topic of sex isn’t always the easiest conversation to have, especially when approaching it from a male and female perspective, not understanding the reason behind why one partner wants or doesn’t want sex.
  • There’s a sense of entitlement that puts a tension in the relationship until there’s a level of comfort to own your own shit and be more chilled out about what it is that you want, respecting the other’s differing views at the same time.

QUESTION:

Do you find it’s hard to talk about sex with your spouse? Why?

 

Point #3: The Magical Formula

  • Garrett would go into pouty asshole mode to become standoffish after not having the entitlement of sex that he expects to come with marriage to also be felt by Danielle.
  • Her solution after a decade of rejection was that porn star sex is necessary every 3rd time they have sex, spending time to connect with each other on a deeper level without feeling like it has to happen every single time they wanted to connect.

QUESTION:

What needs do you think your partner feels is necessary for you? What do you think their needs are?

 


Challenge of the Week:

Danielle’s Tip for Women:

Find your magical formula in which everyone is happy.

Garrett’s Tip for Men:

The story you’re telling yourself about how your wife sees sex may be simply that: a story. You’re going to have to change your story and investigate it to give you the tools that you need to have a better approach to get what you want.

 


Quote of the Day:

“Every couple has their formula to combat against the rejection factor that inevitably comes within marriage, and I could see that Garrett was putting in the effort the way that he knew how, which came to a willingness to go all in. If you have really good sex, they’re not thinking about porn or another woman but they’re thinking about YOU, putting their focus on having a good time.”
