Just Do It!

On New Year’s Eve when my son was 13 months old, I resolved never to turn down sex. If it was hinted at, suggested, or boldly offered by my partner, I would go for it.

It didn’t matter if I was in the mood or not. Because let’s face it, waiting until we were both in the mood, the baby was asleep and the sheets were clean was like waiting for my lucky numbers to win the lottery.

So I lowered the bar.

The result was- a lot more sex! And guess what? Once we started fooling around, my desire caught up with my body and it felt great.

A couple months ago New York magazine asked Babeland for some sex tips for living a happier life. I proffered my “say yes to sex” resolution as something other people in long term relationships might want to try. All hell broke loose! Some folks seemed to think I was telling women to say yes to rape! Someone even unfriended us on Facebook.

So to clarify, if you really don’t feel like it, don’t do it. But if it’s just a kinda don’t feel like it, then I say go for it.

So here’s my recipe for improving your partnered, parenting sex life:

  • Say “yes”
  • Keep supplies (Lube) handy
  • Repeat as needed
