Sexual intimacy is so much more than the mere act of sex. Nurturing an emotional connection with your wife outside of the bedroom is just as important as tending to her needs inside of it. One of the ways you can do that is by going out of your way to encourage her with words of affirmation. Helping her feel adored, understood, and appreciated plays an essential part in creating the vibrant sex life you desire.
Husbands, you have the unique opportunity to connect with your wife when she’s most vulnerable. She’s sharing her body and soul with you and trusting you with her rawest self — no one else has that privilege! Building her up every chance you get creates a safe place for her to share all of who she is with you.
As a wife, I can’t encourage you enough to use your words wisely. One of the biggest shame triggers for a woman is her appearance, so be generous with your kindness. There is a constant assault against your wife regarding her value and beauty so more is more when it comes to honoring the way she looks and communicating how valuable she is to you.
