Unrealistic Expectations

Contrary to the opinion of some, sex is not a topic that God finds taboo. In fact, sex was God’s idea. He created us male and female and He instituted marriage with the intent that two would become ‘one flesh’. Why then do so many couples fail to find satisfaction in this important area of marriage? I want to suggest one major reason.

Unrealistic expectations. Films, magazines, and novels convey the idea that sexual thrill and mutual satisfaction are automatic. That is simply not true. God told Israel that a young couple should  ‘take a year’ and learn to pleasure each other. What makes us think that we can do so in less time?
