Make Out With Your Wife

Sex is without a doubt the most fulfilling physical expression of love between a husband and wife. Speaking from a husband's point of view, it is impossible for me to think of anything else that is as pleasurable – mind, body, and soul.

But when was the last time you and your wife made out? Remember when passionate kissing played a very important role in your relationship? What happened to those days?

Very naturally kissing frequently takes a back seat to sex. Too often it becomes an item on the list of things to do to get sex; a box to mark on the Foreplay Checklist. Like I said, this happens naturally, it's supposed to be this way. There are few inhibitions between a husband and wife so there is no questioning how "far" you can go— or should go—so it's normal to just let things go. And there's nothing wrong with that.

But recently my wife and I have experienced the fun of passionate kissing again, and it's been great. It's reminded me of the importance of sexual passion outside of sex itself. This passion lights a flame inside of you and makes the sex that much more exciting, whenever the lovemaking may come.

When was the last time you made out with your wife? I challenge you to give this some quality time in your relationship. This is exciting and can spice things up a bit. Give your wife some passion, and keep her guessing by not going all the way right away. Tell her you just want to spend some time kissing, and then really kiss her.

But if she wants to keep things going, by all means, change the rules.

  2. good post. making out in a relationship totally gets underrated after a while in a relationship, and i think its great you pointed that out

  3. Interesting timing on this post. My wife just had a baby three weeks ago, so sex is still definitely off the table. I've been trying to initiate a make-out session like you describe, but she's not quite ready for that yet, either.

    Seems like it would be natural for husbands to re-discover this form of physical expression when they first become a dad. At this point I will be grateful for whatever I can get!

  4. Thanks for the great post. You have been added to my blog list.

  5. Thanks for your email. I changed it up on the blog. Keep up the great work!

  6. What do you do with a wife who doesn't want to be intimate anymore because of how she looks. It's really hard to try to get her into "the mood" and whenever I make a run for it she slams the door in my face. Hopefully i'm not the only one going threw this.

  7. I've tried, but my wife has no interest in making out or even French kissing any more. Not even when we have sex : (

    What's more. . . she refuses to discuss it and gets really angry when I try to kiss her or even bring it up. . . She acts like it's MY problem or I'm 'needy' for wanting to kiss. Once she told me that married people don't do 'that'!

    At least it's heartening to know that other folks still share passionate kissing with their spouses.

  8. I love making out!! It's awesome and intimate and exciting and fun! Yes!!
