Writers, we need you. We are at our best over here at Hello, Darling when we have a variety of voices. For the month of August we’re going to be talking about marriage and sex, and we want to know what you have to say on the topic.

The Summer 2014 issue of Hello, Darling is focused on the Privilege of Femininity. We spent a lot of hours, and much heartache putting together what it means to be a woman, and now we want to keep that conversation going over topics more in depth.

Here are some topics that might spur some interest for you.

(But don’t feel limited by these sub-topics!)


  • What does it mean to maintain a friendship in your marriage? And what does it take?
  • Maintaining a sense of individual identity
  • What are the biggest pitfalls in your marriage, and how do you remedy them?
  • If you were to say this one thing is a game changer in your marriage, what would it be?


  • The importance of sex in marriage
  • His needs, her needs
  • How do you manage varying levels of sex drives?
  • How do you create an environment of intimacy during sex so that each person’s needs are being met?
  • Scheduling sex dates, how to make space for sex with small children

Submission deadline: 3 July 2014
