How do you feel about scheduled intimacy? Many couples feel it’s only necessary for those who lack passion or have marital issues. However, I’m here to tell you that’s just not true. We make time for other things we value, like exercise and eating regularly. Why shouldn’t we also carve out designated time for intimacy? In this episode of The Intimate Marriage Podcast, I’m talking about the misconceptions surrounding this and the many benefits that couples experience when they priortize sex in this way.


  • [00:46] How do you feel about scheduling sex?
  • [4:48] How to alter your perception of scheduled intimacy 
  • [07:57] The anticipation of scheduled intimacy 
  • [13:51] Guiding intimate expectations and communication
  • [17:40] The Intimacy Program


  • There is a misunderstanding that scheduling sex is only for couples that lack passion or are having marital issues – that’s not true.
  • When we value things, we schedule it into our lives like exercise or eating regularly. Why shouldn’t we priortize sex in the same way?
  • Just like looking forward to dining at a nice restaurant or going out on a date with your partner, scheduling intimacy builds anticipation.
  • Scheduling sex increases intentionality and communication within your relationship, which leads to greater intimacy.
