On this Focus on the Family broadcast, Debra Fileta and Gary Thomas offer married couples guidance for understanding what it takes to cultivate a sexual intimacy that's more deeply satisfying and mutually fulfilling. Our guests explain how to overcome common barriers to this kind of intimacy, one of the foremost of which is faulty "sexpectations," which are the expectations couples have that they don't have to talk about intimacy, and that good sex should just happen naturally. Other topics addressed include the vulnerability a husband feels when approaching his wife for sex, the misconception that there's a "formula" for arousal, and how what happens throughout the day and "above the sheets" affects a wife's desire for and enjoyment of sex.
