About 8 years ago, I was staying at an older friends house, not even sure I can call her a friend because she was more. She was much older, a friend of the family and like a big sister to me and we were pretty close.
We talked about everything, I told her about my crushes and she would gossip about her husband (in a good way) , I would go to her for advice and she would be open, honest and transparent, always reminding me not to make the same mistakes she did growing up, she would stop me from making crazy decisions and I would in turn push her to let her hair down, she would send me cash a lot of times and I would come to her house for the weekend and offer to clean for her (stop rolling your eyes please, I love to clean and sometimes I get paid for it, my gift was making room).
Anyway, I was cleaning up her entire walk-in closet that weekend, taking out the old and un-used stuff, keeping the new, trying out her clothes and making a to-go pile ,when something wrapped in clothes dropped and when I looked down it was a sex toy, She walked in about the same time and I am not sure who was more embarrassed, but I turned to her to apologise, when I noticed the tears running down her face….
She took my hand dragged me to the bed and she said simply, he won’t touch me, He is a fantastic man, provides, works hard, brings home the bacon, spoils me but he won’t touch me. I try to initiate sex, but he has excuses for days, he is fasting, tired, had a long day at work, stressed (yeah right, or he is probably having enough of it outside or something, I thought).
We kept talking, well I actually just listened but eventually she said, she didn’t get married a virgin but he was, they never discussed sex before marriage, they just knew they would wait, she could never ask for more because he would look at her funny and every time she initiated sex, the response was “do you think of anything else”? So instead she got herself a few toys, it was Afterall better than seeking satisfaction outside.
She is 15 years older, so I really could not compare my crush’s and college boyfriend to this, I could not even judge her ,what did I know? this was big people problems, so I hugged her and told her what I knew, I said talk to him, if he is half the person you say he is, he will listen.
This is not fiction, these things happen, to a lot more people than you think. So I thought to ask you married sisters an honest question today;
Are you having sex? Are you so busy with the babies that you don’t have time to satisfy him? Does hubby give you a look when you initiate sex? have you found alternative ways to please yourself? Is hubby always fasting or tired? Are you team headache for days or school runs in the morning or team pretend to sleep gang or team once a year?
Today I came to do the Lord’s work and to remind you that sex is beautiful and dutiful, sex is good and is of God but even better there is a whole page dedicated to sex with real experts who know a lot about these things and if you are like me and you “like bad things”

@wholesomesexuality on Instagram and YouTube, if you ask them nicely they might give you a free consultation (until we start to bill you)
The other thing I want you to do, is to grab hubby and get him to watch Pastor K’s latest video on YouTube (25 wrong mindsets about sex) just click here, there is also a part 2 so make sure you watch this too, I promise you its so good and you will learn a thing or two.
Maybe it won’t fix the problems but I am sure it will spark the right conversations and that is a good place to start.
So sis Uche after all the celebrating we celebrated you yesterday, please go and do the do you promised to Do.
love and light
