Good Girls Do, or Don’t?
One of the greatest obstacles to intimacy in marriage, for many women, is figuring out how to feel about sexual pleasure. Our mothers’ generation was probably brought up to reject the idea of women enjoying or discussing sex—even within marriage (even though Good Sex Starts with Good Communication). For many of them, the great challenge was conquering the “good girls don’t” mentality. For the younger wives who’ve been raised in a world saturated in sexual images and talk, the challenge may be discerning where to draw the line.
