  1. Good questions!!!!

  2. yeah, i was a catholic bride. they did not teach much about this stuff 20 years ago either.

    i mentioned this in another thread, but i will repeat here. i got several sex books and read them. i found the one i liked, and bought my fiance the exact same one. it covered all the stuff above and was illustrated … one of those everything you wanted to know illustrated type books. i gave it too him several months before we were married and had him put post-it notes on the different pages, rating the different things. like 100 points for i want to try this right away, 80 points for i want to try it someday, 50 points for i do not care one way or the other, 25 points for i would rather not but might if you want, 0 for no way.

    then about a month prior we exchanged books and discussed. i actually combined our notes and brought the book on our honeymoon.

  3. Hi

    I just wanted to thank you so much for these questions! I am really nervous about the first night of our marriage but really want it to be special. My hubby to be is “born again virgin” and is really understanding of my fears and insecurities. However we have agreed to work through these questions and decided on expectations together so THANKYOU!

    Your site is a huge blessing it has taught me to set boundaries with my hubby to be but showed me that sex is a great thing to look forward. To often as Christian singles we are taught to despise sex but are never told what to do after we get married! God bless you all!

  4. that’s a good idea. my fh and i have a couple of marriedsex books from our premarital mentoring. might give that a try; we’re both still very unused to talking about sex… 😛

  5. these are great questions! thanks!

  6. I am getting married in 4 days! My husband to be and I are both virgins (amazing since he is 40 and I am 44!!) and nervous but excited about our first night together. What is the name of that book?

    We are great communicators and have talked about our first time together but we really could use a “how to” book. After all as he says, “even stupid people can do it” we ought to be able to figure it out. We are finally getting comfortable with, the “it’s going to be okay now, we’re married…we can have fun” after so many years of celibacy and being good “Christians”

    Anyone out there with some helpful advice would be appreciated! Thanks.

  7. Nice and very helpful
