Hello

Hello everyone!

I’ve been lurking here for the last six months or so. I grew up in a Christian family where sex was never discussed. My mom is a bit of a prude. When I got engaged last year I started reading here in an attempt to educate myself. I eventually found the forums and I have read them pretty steadily since then.

I got married last month and we are very happy together 🙂 My username is a mythology reference. My husband and I have a running joke that he has my seal skin hidden somewhere.

Thank you to everyone who contributes to these discussions. You helped grow my perspective on sex and sexuality so much. I felt much more prepared for my wedding night and marriage due to these forums. My husband and I like to discuss the questions of the day together before we go to sleep.

I don’t know how much I will post since I don’t have much experience to add and share, but I appreciate reading everyone’s opinions and how positive these forums are.

    Welcome Selkie!

    Thank you for your introduction and sharing a bit with us. So helpful! Thanks for coming out of lurkingdom and joining us.

    How exciting to know that you have benefited from TMB! Makes it feel like we already kind of know you! I’m so curious to know what was helpful!

      Everyone has something to contribute at sometime, I hope you jump in when you can. The great thing about the QOTD is it’s something just about everyone can answer, if they desire.

      Glad you are here!

      Thank you! I’m sure that I will sometimes.  I always think about what I read so maybe I’ll have more things to share than I would expect.

        Don’t be silent. If you don’t have answers, ask questions. I enjoy hearing everyone’s perspectives.

              Welcome as well.  As you have seen from hanging around this is a very encouragement group of people sharing the ups and downs of life’s journey we call marriage.  It’s a place to get tips and to provide feedback, so don’t be embarrassed, ask away or give some input.  It’s been positive and enjoyable for me with the kinship we share in Christ.  It’s also a place to be encouraged when you have a life event that needs prayer, so don’t be afraid to ask.  Be blessed.

              I love how encouraging these forums are! That is probably what kept me reading when I first found them. Thank you!

                It’s a rare but awesomely great thing that you (and he) have found and are taking advantage of a forum like this at such an early stage in your lives together. Many, if not most, only get to here or places like here after a long period of pain and anguish. Being here now will not completely eliminate problems in your marriage (sorry to say that, but truth is freeing), but it can certainly lessen them to a great degree. endeavor with all your power to keep the communication lines open between you. Practice compassion with intentionality, but also tactful honesty. And remember – “God’s way works every time its tried.”   (I don’t know who first said that, but he was a smart guy 😉 )

                Thank you! God bless the google search engine, because TMB was one of the top results when I looked up Christian sex articles. It came at the right time.

                I have never heard that quote before, but I love it! Thank you for sharing!

                  Welcome!  Awesome on you for taking the steps to have a good sex life!  You and your husband will both be blessed!  God has given you wisdom to make this priority.
