About this Episode

How often should married couples have intercourse? How do I relate to my relative who is undergoing a sex reassignment surgery? Is it normal to experience resistance when trying to teach Theology of the Body at my parish?

Ask Christopher West is a weekly podcast in which Theology of the Body Institute Director Christopher West and his beloved wife Wendy share their humor and wisdom, answering questions about marriage, relationships, life, and the Catholic faith, all in light of John Paul II’s beautiful teachings on the Theology of the Body.

  1. Is there an ideal number of times a couple should be having intercourse in marriage?

  2. Yesterday I was informed by my son and daughter-in-law, that my daughter-in-law’s father has begun the process to change his sex. He’s on hormone therapy and in the near future will have sex reassignment surgery to “become a woman”. My daughter-in-law is not thrilled with this but has expressed that she just wants her father to be happy. He has struggled with depression his whole life. My heart is heavy for all involved. How should I react when I see my daughter-in-law’s father changed in this way for the first time?

  3. We’ve been running into resistance when trying to teach and promote TOB at our parish. Is this normal?
