Speaking about the unspeakable

Hey there, dear Readers!

Here at GoodHusbanding, we try to talk about all aspects of marriage, like communication, housekeeping, fashion, future planningparenting, and making your wife feel special.  One subject we’ve shied away from more than the others is very important – the subject of sex.

To be honest, part of the reason that we don’t write about sex very often is that we’re simply not sure how our readers (aka – YOU) would react.  As a tiny start-up site, we don’t want to alienate any of our precious readers by talking about such a racy subject.  On the other hand, I don’t think we can talk about marriage without talking about sex – it’s a very important part of marriage and shouldn’t be ignored.

Many of the other spousal advice sites I’ve seen are religion-based, and therefore don’t speak of such things.  Since we are a religion-agnostic site, I think that we have an interesting opportunity that the other sites may not have.  Also, we’ve gotten a few requests to write about certain aspects of sex, like dry spells and how often is often enough; so I feel that many of you may want to read more about it.


Please let me know your opinion in the comments!


Thank you,

About the Author: Abby Dryer's goal in life is to bridge the communication gap between men and women. She finds herself giving lots of marital advice to her guy friends whose wives don’t want to have to explain *everything* to their husbands. “Women are hard to understand. I’m a woman, and *I* don’t even get us sometimes! Goodhusbanding is a great guide to help men understand their women, and hopefully communicate with a little more confidence, because that’s what works… communication!”

    Sex is an essential part of a committed relationship. If this site maintains a goal of addressing the needs and interests of men (and their partners) in committed relationships, then yes, I think sex should be a topic available for conversation and comment.

    I say “Bring it on!!” but keep it classy! 😉 That’s where it becomes tricky: Talking about a dirty subject while keeping it clean!! Lol!!

    All topics need to be open for discussion, especially sex.
