Although I try to balance the articles on CalmHealthySexy between sex topics and healthy living topics, I have to admit that the sex and intimacy articles tend to get the most traffic. And in a lot of ways, that makes sense.
Because it’s fairly easy to find good advice on how to eat well, make time for exercise, lose weight, and otherwise take care of your health. But it’s not so easy to find good advice on creating a sexy marriage – tips on how to feel sexier and enjoy sex and intimacy in your marriage.
Yes, there’s a lot of sex advice available online, but let’s face it – most of it isn’t written for married women! And little of it focuses on how really, really hard it can be for married women to manage their lives, families and schedules and still have time for – and interest in – creating a sexy marriage.
So in 2016, as in previous years, most of the top articles on this blog focused on that very thing – offering practical ideas that busy wives and moms can do to feel sexier, embrace their sexuality, and enjoy having sex with their husbands.
