Why I’m never going to write another post on SexWithinMarriage.com

Sep 25, 2016

Well, it’s the end of an era, at least for me. Nearly 5 years ago, I started a little, unknown blog called Sex Within Marriage. In the first month, I think only about 100 people read it. This month I just broke a million page views

This month I just broke a million page views FOR THE YEAR.  I’m over 3 million overall.  Best estimates are that about a quarter of a million people have visited this little unknown blog.

And we continue to grow!

So, why am I shutting down SexWithinMarriage.com?

Well, because I want to reach even more people.  I want to help more Christians.  And while my current readers (who are awesome!) are generally sex-positive … their friends and family aren’t always the same way.  It’s intimidating to “Like” a Facebook page called SexWithinMarriage knowing your mom, or your brother are going to see “Jay Dee likes Sex Within Marriage!”  And I always wondered how many people have shared a post with a friend and said “…ignore the blog name, it’s actually a good post”.

More so, I worry about how many people didn’t share a post they knew would help someone because of the name.

As well, I’m finding I’m expanding beyond “just sex”.  I truly believe that marriage is a holistic relationship, that your sexual relationship affects your spiritual relationship, your emotional relationship, and all the other facets.  As I continue to expand, “Sex Within Marriage” becomes more and more of a misnomer.

So, I’ve been kicking around the idea of a re-brand for a while and finally decided to pull the trigger.  So, welcome to the new site: UncoveringIntimacy.com where we’ll be exploring all facets of married life.  Of course, this is still going to be a huge sex-positive Christian community, because that’s built into the DNA of the site, but we’re going to start exploring things like finances and spirituality, recreation and other experiences.

I hope my regular readers will help by sharing the new Facebook page and will feel more comfortable sharing the blog with their friends and family.  I also am planning to re-brand the podcast to make that more shareable as well.

I haven’t managed to get everything switched over yet, but I’m working on it.  If you see something out-of-wack on the website, don’t hesitate to let me know.  You can reach me here.

Thanks for sticking with me over the last (nearly) 5 years.  I anticipate the next 5 being just as exciting!
