Concluding his remarks, Piper addressed husbands specifically, encouraging them to seek their wife’s affection by non-sexual means. “Finally, I would say to men especially, if you hope to have a thrilling, joyful, mutually satisfying sexual relationship with your wife for the next fifty years, you absolutely will not have it by demanding or expecting ever more bizarre exploits,” Piper said. “Rather, you will have it by devoting 99 percent of your effort to loving your wife well outside the bedroom, so that she finds you somebody she really desires.”
Piper did not directly address the anonymous listeners who submitted their questions, whether to comment specifically on the details they shared or to encourage them to seek marital counseling.
