I think it’s safe to say in our culture that most men are targeted for being the ones in the relationship who want more sex. The ones who crave it, think about it, even obsess over it. And while men’s minds were designed very differently from ours, that doesn’t mean that we women don’t want what we want in the bedroom, too.

Now if you’re anything like me, once the idea of sex comes into your mind, it can be really hard to push it aside. Because when my thoughts race to these intimate places in the bedroom with my husband, it keeps me longing for more of him and more of our time together. And I can’t get it out of my mind.

Yes, I’m the woman and I want more sex. Here’s how I get it.

  1. I hint at it first thing in the morning. No, men aren’t the only ones who think about sex when they first wake up. Now that we’ve had kids, there are usually a few extra little bodies curled up in bed with us watching cartoons in the morning, but that doesn’t mean that sex still doesn’t cross my mind. Rather than getting some before we both start our days, a quick mention of it later that night gets both of our minds going in the right direction and begins the anticipation of what’s to come. And I’ve found that anticipation makes sex all the more exciting for both of us. Because when that much passion is built up after thinking about it all day, chances are it’s going to be a hot night.
  2. Add a little something extra to your kiss. How many times do we just give our men a quick kiss in passing, but never take the time to make it a passionate one? Taking 15 extra seconds and using a little more than just your lips to kiss your man or adding a grab to your favorite part of his body will definitely give him the signal that you’re wanting more than just a kiss. Give him a slip of the tongue, run your fingers through his hair, grab onto his arms, or any part of his backside. I promise, he will get the hint.
  3. Give him a back rub. Sometimes men need to be loosened up just like we do. We can’t expect them to be able to flip a switch and become a sex unicorn, nor can they expect the same from us! Sometimes all they need is the chance to relax and get in the mood. Start up in his neck and shoulders, he’s probably tense and tired from working all day. And if you’re feeling feisty, let your hands wander. Don’t be afraid to kiss his neck and pull him in close. Let him know you love being near to him.
  4. Make it really obvious. Sure your man sees you on your hands and knees picking up toys, folding laundry, and unloading the dishwasher. But have you bent over just for him? I’m totally serious. There is nothing that will get my husband’s attention off of the tv or his phone and onto me like pulling and Elle Woods right in front of him. Climb onto his lap, give him one of those long, passionate kisses we talked about earlier. LET HIM KNOW YOU WANT HIM, ladies. Men want to be wanted and chased after.
  5. Once you get in the bedroom, let him know what you want. I think so often as women, it can be difficult, maybe even embarrassing, for us to verbalize what we want in bed. Maybe we think the fireworks should just “happen” or we think something might be wrong with us if it doesn’t feel good. But most of the time, we aren’t getting what we want in the bedroom because we are afraid to speak up. Tell him what feels good and what doesn’t, suggest a new position, ask him what HE wants. Conversations in the bedroom during the deed don’t have to be awkward, but they do have to be honest!

So if you’re one of those ladies who wants more sex, this is your time girlfriend! One of the things that I think is just the coolest is that God designed us for intimacy, He created sex to be pleasurable. And because He made each one of us so uniquely, there isn’t anything wrong with wanting more of what He made to be good.

I Thought Our Friendship Would Be Unbreakable

In: Friendship, Journal, Relationships
Two friends selfie

The message notification pinged on my phone. A woman, once one of my best friends, was reaching out to me via Facebook. Her message simply read, “Wanted to catch up and see how life was treating you!”  I had very conflicting feelings. It seemed with that one single message, a flood of memories surfaced. Some held some great moments and laughter. Other memories held disappointment and hurt of a friendship that simply had run its course. Out of morbid curiosity, I clicked on her profile page to see how the years had been treating her. She was divorced and still...

The First Ten Years: How Two Broken People Kept Their Marriage from Breaking www.herviewfromhome.com

We met online in October of 2005, by way of a spam email ad I was THIS CLOSE to marking as trash. Meet Single Christians! My cheese alert siren sounded loudly, but for some reason, I unchecked the delete box and clicked through to the site. We met face-to-face that Thanksgiving. As I awaited your arrival in my mother’s kitchen, my dad whispered to my little brother, “Hide your valuables. Stacy has some guy she met online coming for Thanksgiving dinner.” We embraced for the first time in my parents’ driveway. I was wearing my black cashmere sweater with the...

Dear Husband, I Loved You First

Man and woman kissing in love

Dear husband, I loved you first. But often, you get the last of me. I remember you picking me up for our first date. I spent a whole hour getting ready for you. Making sure every hair was in place and my make-up was perfect. When you see me now at the end of the day, the make-up that is left on my face is smeared. My hair is more than likely in a ponytail or some rat’s nest on the top of my head. And my outfit, 100% has someone’s bodily fluids smeared somewhere. But there were days when...

Stop Being a Butthole Wife

Man and woman sit on the end of a dock with arms around each other

Stop being a butthole wife. No, I’m serious. End it.  Let’s start with the laundry angst. I get it, the guy can’t find the hamper. It’s maddening. It’s insanity. Why, why, must he leave piles of clothes scattered, the same way that the toddler does, right? I mean, grow up and help out around here, man. There is no laundry fairy. What if that pile of laundry is a gift in disguise from a God you can’t (yet) see? Don’t roll your eyes, hear me out on this one. I was a butthole wife. Until my husband died. The day...

I Can’t Be Everyone’s Chick-fil-A Sauce

A couple of friends and I went and grabbed lunch at Chick-fil-A a couple of weeks ago. It was delightful. We spent roughly $20 apiece, and our kids ran in and out of the play area barefoot and stinky and begged us for ice cream, to which we responded, “Not until you finish your nuggets,” to which they responded with a whine, and then ran off again like a bolt of crazy energy. One friend had to climb into the play tubes a few times to save her 22-month-old, but it was still worth every penny. Every. Single. One. Even...

Sometimes Friendships End, No Matter How Hard You Try

Sad woman alone without a friend

I tried. We say these words for two reasons. One: for our own justification that we made an effort to complete a task; and two: to admit that we fell short of that task. I wrote those words in an e-mail tonight to a friend I had for nearly 25 years after not speaking to her for eight months. It was the third e-mail I’ve sent over the past few weeks to try to reconcile with a woman who was more of a sister to me at some points than my own biological sister was. It’s sad when we drift...

Goodbye to the House That Built Me

Ranch style home as seen from the curb

In the winter of 1985, while I was halfway done growing in my mom’s belly, my parents moved into a little brown 3 bedroom/1.5 bath that was halfway between the school and the prison in which my dad worked as a corrections officer. I would be the first baby they brought home to their new house, joining my older sister. I’d take my first steps across the brown shag carpet that the previous owner had installed. The back bedroom was mine, and mom plastered Smurf-themed wallpaper on the accent wall to try to get me to sleep in there every...

Mamas, look after your middles. Those babies who are born second, third, fourth or so in the birth order. The ones who are sandwiched between the idolized older sibling and the teeny tiny baby who stole everyone’s hearts. They need you more than you know. They need a little extra love from time to time. A hug and a “good job” here and there just to remind them that nobody has taken their spot in your heart since you added to your family. Try to remember they weren’t given a choice of their place in the lineup. If given the...
