Bridling & Surrender - Success Stories ~ "Mini Couples' Cruise on Land"
Couples' Cruise Highlights ~ Blissful Marriage Retreat
Video - Tips for Fun and Flirty ~ Marital Intimacy Institute

Definitely one of the hardest things men often have to face in order to improve the sexual relationship is bridling their sexuality and developing a relaxed state of spiritual surrender about sex... This is vital for creating an environment where she can freely choose to engage or not, or all she will be able to genuinely give is "duty sex." It often feels to men like we're asking them to "walk on water." But what kind of sex do men really want?! 

Without testosterone or the feeling that they actually have the freedom to choose, women have a tough time getting to what men want most... freely and enthusiastically wanting and desiring them... not just servicing them out of obligation! Women can't freely "want to" if they just feel pressured to "put out!" It's one of the toughest conundrums in the sexual relationship.

The following are just a few of the many success stories where men have mustered the wherewithal to develop the necessary surrender to dramatically change the sexual relationship in their marriages. This is part of the husband's soul-stretching work toward creating a "sextraordinary" marriage.

"This is the first time in my life that I've talked about sexuality and intimacy in detail when there was more than one other person in the room. It was refreshing to hear other couples ask questions and share comments in such a wholesome and candid environment."
