Below is an excerpt from a comment that I recently received from a woman calling herself Elyse.
“I work full time, have two young kids so I totally get the “I’m so tired” shtick. But hear me out. I’ve recently decided to conscientiously submit to my husband better in all of life and that includes sexually. I let him know that I’m ready to submit to him in all ways including the bed and that my body is his. Surprisingly, this has had an amazing impact on our marriage as a whole…”
To read the rest of her story as well as my take on it and my challenge to Christian wives see my full article on BiblicalSexology.com.
I recently had a woman named Monica write me about 10 rules for sex that her husband gave her at the beginning their marriage. These rules are very good applications of what the Bible says about submission and sex in marriage. I asked how many years Monica and her husband have been married in a followup email and she responded that they have been married for 13 years. So ladies listen up. These rules have made for both a holy and happy marriage for Monica and her husband and they will for you as well if you follow them.
“Is it wrong for me to motivate my wife into having good sex with me using money? Am I treating my wife like a prostitute by doing this?” This was part of an email I received from a Christian husband going by the name of Luke.
But before I answer this question from a Biblical perspective, I want to show more of his email to add more context to this story.
I was hoping you could tell me if I am properly applying the principles, you teach based on the Bible on how to handle sexual refusal from your wife. My wife told me I was treating her like a prostitute because I decided to start crediting her spending account based on how often she has sex with me and I also give her bonuses for doing extra things like giving me oral sex and wearing lingerie.
Let me give you a little background to my story before I started rewarding my wife for good sex. My wife and I have been married for over 25 years and we have three wonderful children who as of this last year have all left the nest. We have attended the same Baptist church for over 30 years (that is where my wife and I met). I work in a high paying profession and this allowed my wife to care for our children and our home for all these years which I still thank the Lord for each day…”

I am happy to announce that a project I have had in the works for a couple months now has finally come to fruition. I have launched a new spin-off blog called BiblicalSexology.com It is still of course a work in progress.
I already started migrating several articles from this site over to that new site and pointing people from my older articles on sex to that new site. Some of my older articles I have edited a bit, while others I have rewritten completely. It also has several brand new articles as well.
I also have a new political site in the works and once that is done I will be porting my older political articles to that site.
Biblicalgenderroles.com will of course remain but the content here will be more focused on gender roles, marriage, courting and discipline in marriage.
