#22: Intimacy, Sex & Aging

Intimacy with your spouse is important is all phases of life--even when you're celebrating your 50th wedding anniversary! Many aspects of our relationships change as we get older, but don't assume you have to stop having sex or physical intimacy together. In this episode, Dr. Gary Chapman and Linda Dillow join Juli to discuss how the dynamics of sexual intimacy change as we age.

Guests: Linda Dillow & Gary Chapman

    Ritchie Mullen, thanks for listening! I don't know the exact compound that Linda used, but it would have been prescribed by her doctor. We recommend consulting with a gynecologist or other specialist. It can be hard to find the right specialist, but worth the effort!

    My wife cannot take hormones - there's a lot of cancer in her family. And there is not one thing that I've not tried. I've read every book that might offer help, every therapy. I've even asked my doctor about chemical castration... I would do anything to find peace and plenitude without any sexual expression at all. I am still a man, a sexual being. But with no hope of any sexual expression/connection with my lesbian wife.

    We are getting toward our 80s. I am committed to my wife (MyLove) to love her as Christ loves the church. We have not been intimacy for a number of years but are going to re-start. I had heard Dr Juli S on Focus on the family and thought her book "Re-thinking Sexuality" would be good book to read out loud to help us re-engage. Hopefully its connect will go beyond cultural issue and lead us into God's perspective on intimacy. I was hoping more info on audio for us. But God knows the way through this wilderness... Because He live... Michael
