“As Christians, we believe that your body is a temple and that in marriage a man and a woman give their bodies to each other,” he explained.
“So I want to give her my best and make sure she likes what she sees.

Slots – increase your range of movement to obtain depth in different positions. Develops endurance in hips, buttocks and thighs

Hip Thrusts – simulate being on the bottom and strengthen and create greater endurance in the glutes and hips. Activates the pelvic floor to help prevent pre-ejaculation
Sprints/races – cardiovascular endurance so as not to get tired
Kegel – supports the erectile strength and duration of the perineal muscles
Naya added: “I also went to the gym to get ready and Jonathan helped me.
“For me, it’s as much preparing for the wedding day as it is preparing for the honeymoon – I have to look beautiful in my dress.
“But I’m also looking forward to our first time together – that waiting is no fun.”
Both Jonathan and Naya have had sex in the past, but have been abstinent in the time they have known each other.
They became an item in October 2022 before Jonathan proposed in May of this year.
He said waiting until marriage hasn’t been easy and hasn’t been without its moments of temptation.
He said: “If we’re out late at night we decide to meet somewhere in the middle of the two of us so we’re not tempted to sleep in because of a long journey home.
“What also helps is honest conversation – admitting ‘I’m horny and you’re horny’ can help ease the tension.”
Jonathan goes to the gym up to four times a week in preparation for their first time.
He also does some personal training work with Naya – to make sure they’re both ready.
He said: “The goal is to be at my best. I want to be good for her so she can enjoy my body.
“Some of the benefits of abstaining while being together have been having the chance to get to know each other without being blindsided by a sexual high,” Naya said.
He argued that “it’s not just for the bedroom.” Jonathan wants to be the “best person” he can be for her “physically, mentally and emotionally”
Jonathan believes that “abstaining is not supposed to be perfection. It’s supposed to be something you’re shooting for.
“It’s not just for the bedroom – I want to be the best person I can be for her physically, mentally and emotionally.
“But our private time together is the point of all the preparation.”
Jonathan takes supplements that are rumored to help in the bedroom and increase libido – like sea moss, horny goat weed, maca root and ashwagandha.
He also did exercises like hip thrusts and squats to hit all the right muscle groups so he knows he’ll be good on their wedding night.
He said: “I’m doing all this cardio, all these HIIT workouts and burpees too – I don’t want to run out of steam! »
But he said what he looks forward to most is “spending time with her endlessly.”
Jonathan said: “Without physical intimacy it can be a challenge.
“I can’t wait to wake up and sleep together.”
