Blog Post: Ten Tips For Dealing with a Frigid Spouse

When you’ve been raised in an environment in which sex is shameful, it isn’t unusual to be sexually frigid or marry someone who is. I must disclose that I am not a huge fan of the term frigid because it can be used as a diss and in a disrespectful manner.

Purity culture often reinforces frigid behaviors that already are impressed upon women when it comes to sex. This leads many spouses to confusion and sexual frustration.

In this podcast episode of The Scarlet Virgins, Rebecca offers 10 Tips for Dealing with a Sexually Frigid Spouse.

I did not have the energy to write out a post to accompany this like I mentioned in the podcast but all the content is within the podcast. I am still looking for a Christian sex therapist to recommend, when I find one I will update this. 🙂
