Oh come now...we're all adults.
Let me start by saying, do you know how hard it was to find the right picture for this? I needed one to express what I was going to write about, yet still not completely shock anyone before getting too far into reading this. I think I did ok. We're all adults. And this topic is about sex after all. Stay with me.
Once upon a time, I would've had a hard time getting some of you off each other. Anytime, any place, as many times as one can fit in a day. If you're still that couple..close this email. You've got better, more fun things to do, apparently. ;) But, for most reading this email, while it was once like that, pregnancy happened...then baby happened...then life happened...and maybe somewhere baby 2 magically happened and then..you get the picture.
Yet, in the middle of the busy times of life, the stress and challenges that can come with raising a little one(s), we're not doing enough of the very thing that can help with relaxation, bonding and connection. Sex. Most parents of young children simply aren't having enough sex.
Let's talk about the many benefits of sex, shall we?
- Reduces stress
- Stronger immune system (bye bye colds and flu!)
- Regulates menstrual cycle
- Improves heart health
- Lower blood pressure
- Helps build a strong relationship
- Skin...glows (who doesn't want that?!)
- Burns calories (skip the gym! just kidding...but maybe!)
- Increases confidence
- Builds stronger pelvic muscles
- Happiness (in the form of the oxytocin hormone)
- Increases sexual desires
- Improves sleep (sweet!!)
- I could go on...
I forgot...why aren't we doing this more often again?! Oh yeah...life. So, how do you make this happen.
Making Sex Happen
For real, book it. Make a sex appointment with your partner and make it happen. Maybe not the most romantic method there is, but as busy people, even sex needs to be penciled in or it may not happen.
Forget the Bed
Got a kid still in your bed or worried that the kiddo sleeping next to your bedroom will hear you? Then skip the bed! Go to the kitchen, the bathroom, the living room...get creative.
Day or Night. Anytime
Too tired at night? Ok. Then have sex other times of the 24 hours in a day.
Bye, Bye Kiddo!
Have family or friends that want to take your little one for a few hours? Perfect. Let them do that and then have fun at home!
Remember, at the beginning there was you and your partner. This still matters. Have fun, touch each other more during the day, more hugs, more hand holding and more building up that bond that makes sex even easier to make a part of your life. Enjoy!
