Honeymoon Happy Story
When my husband and I first got engaged we tried to have “the talk” about sexual intimacy and expectations. We were both really shy and the night that we discussed things basically ended in, “Well, I have never been naked in front of anyone before, so this is going to be an interesting experience.”
I had been to several bridal showers of my friends and always felt uncomfortable when they received lingerie and every one made “Ooo la la” comments. However, that changed and I became very excited for our opportunity to experience and learn from each other.
This change happened because we decided to read and listen to your book, “And They Were Not Ashamed.” I am deeply grateful for our decision to do this. For the remainder of our engagement, we had open discussions based off of what we had read/listened to that day. It made it a lot easier to know what questions to ask and what to talk about with each other.
Before reading this book, neither of us really knew what to expect. While media was one of the sources of info concerning sex, we avoided that influence as much as possible, knowing it was distorted. Church was the other source where we were strongly discouraged from sexual intimacy before marriage, but were never really told how beautiful it could be in marriage.
Knowledge of Sexual Differences
Your book has helped us to be open about sexual intimacy from the start, which has been a huge blessing!! My sweet husband has been so diligent throughout our marriage in satisfying my needs every time we enjoy sexual intimacy together. And I believe that is because both he and I were made aware of the differences between men and women from your book. Understanding the importance of the clitoris and the different phases of sex has been extremely helpful for us.
Our honeymoon was such a sweet experience, because we were already so comfortable opening up to each other and were both willing and anxious to learn. Thank you again for writing such a helpful book!
