Sextraordinary Marriages Billboard ~ VIDEO - "Mini Couples' Cruise on Land"
Audio Books Available ~ VIDEO - 12 T's to Know HER Intimately
It's important for men to not take on the world's view of sex and have expectations of the intimate relationship in marriage that are not realistic for real wives. This article has three helpful suggestions for men who have been affected by pornography or just have a sense of entitlement when it comes to sex.

"In our society, even among Christians, many guys are secondhand participants in sex via pornography...So a lot of guys grow up thinking that what they watch on their computers is what sex is really like. And then they get married and carry those expectations into their marriage bed and get disappointed when real life is very different."

Taking the Squeamishness out of Sex
We're super excited to finally have our first SEXtraordinaryMarriages billboard go live Monday, July 30th!! With your help this is hopefully just the first of many billboards to restore some light and positive affirmation to healthy marital sexuality--the way God designed it. We want to "change the air" regarding marital sexuality and take some of the squeamishness out of sex. Ultimately, we hope to help create many "sextraordinary marriages!" :) 

Our end goal is for individuals, couples, families and organizations to: 1) more openly, comfortably and confidently talk about and affirm marital sexuality, and 2) to help people have a more positive association with sexuality. But we need your help! Click here to donate to our GoFundMe campaign and share it with your friends who might also help us "change the air" regarding healthy marital sexuality! ;)
Donate Today! (...you can even do so anonymously!)
