Bringing Sexy Back?


Do you ever find yourself wondering, “Uhh, where did my sex life go, and why is it so hard to bring it back?” I have a person here that I married, and I SHOULD be able to have sex almost as much as I want, right?

Well, it just isn’t as easy as it sounds.

One night, my husband and I had DECIDED that we were going to have sex later that night. Yes, it was a decision. A very exciting decision.

But, first, before exciting things could happen, we had The Bed Time Ritual to get through. The little maniac relaxes on the couch with a cup of milk and watches a show on our Tivo list before we go upstairs to get ready for bed. This particular night, he chose a rousing episode of Chuggington. Titillating stuff. Anyone getting excited yet?

I decided some wine was in order, but, oops, I had a little too much. Perhaps I was trying to take the edge off the DECISION and the anticipation it had caused. I was sitting on the couch, and I kid you not, I had to shut one eye to focus on Chuggington. This is a sorry, sad state of affairs when you find yourself watching Chuggington with one eye closed because you have had too much to drink. (Trust me, it didn’t make the damn show any better either.)

So with Chuggington as our foreplay, upstairs we went. I will leave the rest to your imagination, but I beg of you, how do you bring sexy back on a semi-regular basis without taking too much time or staying up too damn late (Let’s face it, I’m pretty sure there are many studies to support the fact that a tired mother will choose sleep over sex 10 times out of 10). And we wonder why we don’t do this more often…

Ha! I haven't figured this one out, and mine are 19 and 11! Late doesnt' work as this is when 19 yr old is coming in from God knows what, and I have to make sure he's "all in one piece"...did I mention that 11 yr old daahhhlin daughter still loves to sleep with me...alot...

I have no idea either. 'Our time' used to be in the morning; we'd wake up late, have a nice chat, and commence with the marital relations. Those sleep-in's don't exist anymore. Maybe my little girl needs to start having regular sleep overs with Nan and Pop!

Until my second babe was born last July, doing the deed was a pretty regular occurance around here. Now, we go 2-3 weeks between and I know we *need* to work on that one. Intimacy and sex is such a big part of a relationship, yet it's the first thing to be put on the backburner when babies come along!

Ha, THIS! Since when do we have to schedule our sex, oh my!

Jen said...

You know, I often wonder the same thing. What in the world did happened to our sex life?

It's difficult but we try to find a way a few nights a week. We've made it a priority and it works for us. It's not easy, but totally worth it to stay connected and make it a point to have a sex life :)

LMAO... I thought I was the only one who watched TV through one eye?

So, I'm just gonna put it out there. Sex really isn't that important to me, but it is really, really important to my husband. There is no way he could go 2-3 weeks without it...even after our children were born, he was ready to go at it! So whenever the kids are occupied with piano lessons or a wii game or playing with the neighbor's kid, I try to offer it up. For me, it's easier to give it up a few times a week than it is to listen to him complain about not getting sex enough. It's not always romantic or sexy but it feeds the beast and saves my sanity. Did I really just confess to "getting it over with" on the internet?

Kristy said...

Oh, Amanda, bless you for your honesty. That was great. And, at least you only admitted it in a comment that your husband will never really read and not on your own blog! However, I do think that "feed the beast and save my sanity" could be a hilarious and great blog post!

You are right. end of it...you are right.

When I go to sleep at nite, Mr. Fairway snores in my ear. No sweet nothings anymore!

Renee said...

Sex? What's that?

kathryn said...

Of course, the more emphasis you put on it, the harder you're making it on yourselves. I'd say spontaneity but who can do that with a toddler??

I think guys are always in the mood...so, you need to find something (oysters, perhaps?) to get you going...and hurry! There's not much time!!

Mama Grits said...

Cracking up over here...chuggington with one eye open..surely the only way to go!

Michelle said...

I agree! A tired mother will choose sleep over sex 10 times out of 10. Sad fact but true!
