I’m so glad Jim and Carrie Gordon of The Intimate Couple are adding their insights to my “altar” series. Their below post is a perfect follow up to my post the other day about unintentionally killing your sexual intimacy.

That’s why I’m thrilled Mrs. Hot Holy Humorous has decided to chime in on my “altar” series. Truth be told, a lot of couples are just so serious when it comes to sex.
