QOTD-9-21-2020- “Christening” the new house?
So DW and I just signed the contract for our first house and if all goes well we’ll be moving in in the near future. 🙂
I have been thinking of ways to “christen” this new house both from a sexual and non-sexual perspective. Anybody have any ideas or thoughts? Anyone want to share what they did to “christen” their new house?
Non-sexual….. our house was a foreclosure, so we had to rip up and replace all the flooring, and we repainted the whole interior. I picked out verses to cover and bless the ones in that room or for the purpose of that room. I painted the references on the floor before the new flooring was laid, they are there unseen, until the flooring gets replaced again.
Congratulations on e new home!
For a sexual christening, you will want to make love in every room. Don’t be in a hurry to do this, make sure that the lovemaking in each room is special and memorable. So, in the kitchen you could have a well-planned naked picnic on the floor. Have DW on the washer or dryer in the laundry room. Make full use of the living room sofa. Don’t forget the garage- you can get it on in the car without any worries about getting caught. etc etc
Years from now, you will still be able to smile as you remember each of these adventures. And, the memory just might prompt a repeat.
Non-sexually, I don’t think we’ve done anything.
Sexually, the question really only applies to our current home, as our previous place had me living alone there before we married and she moved in. For our current place, we were in the middle of our first trimester for our second born–a point at which I’d label as the start of our “drought” years. Thus, we didn’t really do anything immediately. Probably the closest thing we did do was to ML in the nursery right after we painted it a few months after moving in. Also, sex in front of the fireplace, though that’s happened multiple times since.
If I had to do it over again, I’d have made sure to have sex on the stairs…never done that before.
A non-sexual suggestion would be to pray over each room, that each in some way might be used to bring God glory.
For sexual suggestions, well, use your imagination. I like what grey_hornet said, take your time and make it memorable and like washing hair, lather, rinse, repeat.
Sexually, I don’t think we have done anything special to christen all the houses we have lived in. When we moved into our permanent one, it was such a difference from any of our old ones that we didn’t mind sleeping on a mattress on the floor for months, maybe even a year.
Non-sexual? Well, someone planned a large housewarming for us. There were people everywhere, is all I can say. And we have a large house.
We just got moved into what we hope will be our last new house. We’ve always enjoyed the “firsts” in each new place, though, and have always made an effort to sexually “christen” the spaces we can (kitchen and dining rooms are off limits for me – I don’t mix food and sex – and the kids’spaces are too). The fun is in realizing that it’s your own place, and you get to do what you want there.
I also try to hold a special family prayer in each home, asking God to dedicate the edifice to His work and service.
Congratulations! So…I think this is an amazing opportunity to romance your wife. I would make a wonderful candlelight picnic/takeout to enjoy together. I would pray over the house together, and I would pray for God to bless your marriage in the house. Express how happy you are that you get to share this house with her, and make memories together in the house. I would lay out blankets on the floor and give your wife a wonderful full body massage. You are starting your experience in the new house as serving her. Sex may follow, but honestly, you will have lots of time to have sex in the house. If there is a room that will be challenging to have sex in once you move in (because of other family), maybe tell her you would love to have sex there.
