Lighten Up! And Laugh a Little about Sex

When it comes to the marital bedroom, I honestly believe a lot of us church folks need to lighten up and learn to enjoy a smile, a chuckle, and even a big belly laugh. We can get so tightly wound about sexual issues and challenges that we fail to see the funny involved in this gift of sex from God.

What makes sex funny? Here are just a few options:

  • Um, yeah, I’m getting naked, and he can see all my stuff. Plus, there’s my potentially weird facial expressions and unusual noises coming from one’s mouth…or other places.
  • Oh, the positions we married couples get into to have sex or increase our pleasure! And has anyone else ever fallen or accidentally injured their spouse during the act?
  • Hello, having sex with kids in your house. Trying to get undisturbed time and keep the kids out of your bedroom can feel impossible in certain moments, and getting that knock on the door when you’re “busy” can bring on a laugh or two.

So in my ongoing effort to help us all lighten up and see the humorous side of married sex, today I decided to share a video clip from Christian comedian Chonda Pierce. Enjoy!

So are you able to laugh about sex in marriage? What has given you a good belly laugh?
