What No One Tells You About Sex After Kids

If you told me five years ago–actually, if you told me five days ago—I’d be talking on the internet about sex, I would have said you were insane.


But for some reason women feel comfortable telling me about their struggles, and for some reason I have a deep desire to see women thriving in their marriages as mothers.

It seems so many women are unaware that men were born with a physiological NEED for sex. It’s portrayed in media as some animalistic desire, but they were created to physically need a woman.

I hear people moan over and over about how sex after kids is difficult and painful and tiring and lame. But physical intimacy is more than a mechanical act. It’s a way to consistently put effort and passion into marriage.

If we aren’t willing to work on our sex lives, we aren’t willing to work on the health of our marriage, and that, my friends, is a very scary place to be. 

My mother helped form my opinion and perspective on sex after marriage with three simple, yet powerful truths, and I am so grateful for the way it impacts my marriage on a daily basis.

I share those tips and my experience, here.

Learning with You!

  1. Hi Katie! It was so great reconnecting with you at camp Dwight. That was one of my highlights of the camp :). And I’ve really enjoyed following your blog and YouTube channel. Love reading/watching what you have to share. I tried to watch this video that you posted on here and for some reason it’s saying it’s on restricted mode. Do you have it posted on YouTube by any chance? I love hearing ways I can help to better my marriage so I’d love to watch what you have to share. Thanks for the encouragement!

    1. Kathryn! I enjoyed reconnecting with you at Camp Dwight as well! I admire your marriage with Jr. and I wish we lived closer! I don’t know why the website says it’s restricted, but here is that video on YouTube! 🙂

  2. “That’s what their pack n’ plays are for” ? love that comment and couldn’t agree more. Loved the video, event though it’s a tough subject to talk about, someone has to do it right!?
    Also – why don’t you have any flyaway baby hairs?? I’m 10 months pp & my hair is ridiculous ?
