Java with Juli podcast
Hosted by Dr. Juli Slattery
Is this really all there is?
If you’ve ever felt this way about your sex life, you’re not alone. In this episode, Dr. Juli Slattery and Gary Thomas grab java in a crowded hotel lobby – but that doesn’t stop them from having a candid conversation about God’s good gift of knock-your-socks-off sex.
Guest: Gary Thomas
We love hearing from you. We love answering your questions and teaching you how to hear from God through His Word and through His Spirit.
This post is a partial transcript of a jewel from the "Java with Juli" archive, episode #132, "Honest Answers to Your Questions About Sex" where Dr. Juli Slattery and Linda Dillow address questions about sex in marriage, confessing sexual sin, and understanding the difference between comfort versus conscience when it comes to "What's OK in the bedroom?"
"There is a tension between desperately wanting to build the hero in your husband and being too proud or afraid to trust him. And so, we end up using our power to overpower our husbands." - Dr. Juli Slattery
Have you experienced this? What if the strength you long to see in your husband begins with your very own heart as a wife? If you're tired of trying to control your marriage, then dive into Dr. Juli Slattery's latest rewrite of her first book. She will give you time-tested biblical principles to help you release control and deepen intimacy with your spouse.
Authentic Intimacy helps you make sense of your sexuality. Through teaching & discipleship, Dr. Juli Slattery helps believers understand and apply God's design for sexuality.
Each week on "Java with Juli," Dr. Juli Slattery has coffee with friends and trusted Christian leaders to talk about intimacy, sexuality, and the real-life questions that surround them. No small talk. No simple answers. Grab your Java and join us!
The Christian church has largely avoided honest conversations about sexuality — so many of us don't know how to have them. The "Rethinking Sexuality" curriculum will teach you how to think biblically about sexuality and equip you to have conversations that point people to Jesus as their Lord, Savior, and Healer.
Authentic Intimacy exists to equip men and women with resources around sexuality. Stop by our online store to check out our books, Java Packs (audio studies), and conference videos. Our blog has hundreds of posts on topics for every season of sexuality, and we offer online book studies each quarter.
This digital resource center is a space to equip Christian leaders with a biblical framework to understand God's design for sexuality. Through an e- course, including certification, you'll learn how to answer questions about sexuality and engage conversations with gospel-centered truth.

Many Christians believe that their sexual choices and beliefs are separate from their spiritual pursuits. They assume that God doesn’t have an opinion about their sexuality — that He allows them to make those choices for themselves.
This is a destructive lie. In fact, sexuality and spirituality were designed to be inseparable. Our sexual beliefs and behaviors are a reflection of what we truly believe about God. Every sexual question is ultimately a spiritual question.
Engaging in conversations about our sexuality is a necessary part of the Great Commission (making disciples). People need help understanding their sexuality within the context of God’s character and biblical teaching.
