Getting Back to the Truth about Sex

Posted on January 4, 2012

In less than a week, Sexperiment will begin to strengthen marriages, repair families and ultimately change the way people see the connection between God and sex. For too long, we have been falling for the world’s lies about what sex is. It’s time to get back to understanding the truth about this amazing gift – God’s truth!

Here’s just a sample of what you’ll find in our upcoming book.

Sex. For such a small word, it has an enormous influence on our lives. From the time we’re very young, sex is something we hear about, talk about, and think about—whether it’s in a healthy way or not. It’s in our music. It’s in our movies, television programs, magazines, and books. Conventional wisdom in the advertising industry is “sex sells.” If they want to sell a product, from shampoo to automobiles, they do all they can to get us to believe it will make us be more sexy, or get more sex. Yet, no matter what we may think we know about sex, so many people don’t understand the full effect it was designed to have.

The Sexperiment is a challenge that was created to help you and your spouse reconnect with what sex is supposed to be. The premise of the challenge is simple and clear: Have sex with your spouse once a day for seven consecutive days. It may not seem like a lot on its surface, but the implications of having sex for a week, as you will discover in reading this book, are much more intricate and will produce long-lasting results. For one week of your life, if you decide to take it on and get it on, the Sexperiment is designed to help you realize just how much sexual intimacy can do for your marriage.

This is just the beginning of a week that could revolutionize your marriage! Make sure you start today!

    There are at least 3 couples that I know whose marraige could be saved because of these talks. Not to mention the countless numbers of students who will get a glimpse of what a healthy relationship looks like. Major props for hitting such a relevant topic!!

    I agree with this but it’s so hard for me bc sex has
    Been misused by me and others. It’s also hard to do when your spouse has issues with pornography. I don’t feel sexy at all and I’m tired of being judged by my appearance / attractiveness. This is so hard for me. I’m glad you are talking and without shame. I feel so empty when I have sex.

    Mary, I’m so sorry! You are not alone. God knows everything you are facing. Keep praying. He can do a miracle in your life and marriage. You would be surprised to know how many women are facing the same situation. If possible, I hope you will seek the wisdom of a Christian counselor to walk you through this.
    And, if you live in the DFW area or Miami, come to Flavour. You can find details at We are going to be talking through a lot of these issues this spring and there are women there who will support and encourage you. Praying for you today…Lisa

    Ed and Lisa,

    I am just wondering if you have ever read or heard about John Paul II’s Theology of the Body? The pope dedicated a greater part of his life to writing about the beauty and sanctity of the sexual union between husband and wife, and its mirror of Christ’s love for the His Church…it would be a great resource for you all. The pope’s original work is really academic and theologically dense, but Christopher West has a series of books that breaks down the teaching to make it a bit more accessible.

    With prayer,

Got something to say?
