I love hearing from you in comments. However, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Low-libido women hurt. They feel like failures. They don’t feel motivated or adequate to engage. Some are not that enthused about sexual intimacy. Because of fragile hearts, comments will be highly moderated.
Comments are welcomed from both genders. Comments most welcomed will be gentle, using rated G or PG language (please use anatomical terms or mild euphemisms), with no profanity, please.
I reserve the right to edit comments if I feel there is too much personal information or if what is being written will not benefit my low-libido friends. Only links that I feel are beneficial to my readers and the mission of this blog will be allowed.
Ultimately, I’d like our fruit to show while interacting through comments.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law,” Galatians 5:22-23.
Guest posts are welcome here! However, I only entertain guest posts from Christian writers. If you feel your post will benefit my low-libido readers and God’s mission here, please message me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The mission of OysterBed7 is to minister to wives who find sexual intimacy hard, experiencing low sexual desire compared to their higher drive husband, to help her understand and think noble/beautiful/true thoughts in regards to God’s design of sexual intimacy. This blog will always point women to the truth found within God’s Word.
This blog is all about God’s hope.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit,” Romans 15:13 (NIV).
Low-libido can be a physical problem, an emotional/relational issue, or a spiritual issue, or a combination of these three. Low libido seems defeating, but I want to give you hope. Low libido is not a permanent condition. Low libido is not a defect. It is a place where God can prove his power (2 Corinthians 12:9).
It’s not always about sex. It’s not always about feeling ‘steamy.’ Three-fourths of the desire dilemma is how you feel about yourself, your marriage, and Christ.
The goal of OysterBed7 is to help you understand that sex-drive isn’t just quivering with the gotta-have-you-now feeling. Your drive for sexual intimacy encompasses your entire life. Every interaction, every moment of stress or peace, every Bible study, everything you let into your brain and feed your belly, affects your desire, all within the grace of Christ and honoring to God’s divine plan.
ASSUMING HONORABLE MARRIAGES
I make the assumption that my readers’ are married to good-willed spouses. They are not perfect, but they are not abusive in any way. Good-willed spouses may not be connecting or showing love in the best manner, but their underlying intention is honorable.
I will never encourage anyone to stay in an abusive situation. Seek professional assistance and a safe place for you and your children if you are in fear of being harmed.
