Bring Passion Back into Your Marriage
7 Nights to Sexual Intimacy
Follow this weeklong program and watch the slow burn of passion become a fireworks display.
By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach
For many years, I have sought to draw attention, as a marriage counselor and author, to the diminishing sex life of the American couple. CNN recently reported that 4o million Americans live in marriages that are utterly platonic. Sexual reconnection for married couples is not a luxury but a necessity, and a marriage devoid of lovemaking is akin to a body devoid of life. So I “modestly” propose a week of sex, especially for those couples who have a moribund sex life. What you’ll be practicing is the journey of sexual intimacy, rather than a goal-oriented sprint toward climax. Try this 7-day program of passion, and see if you can reignite the sexual soul of your marriage.
Experience the first step to sexual intimacy.
