The 30-day sex challenge: Day 1

So as you all read in my previous blog, Hubby and I decided to embark on this very, um, interesting challenge of having ‘Relations’ every day for 30 days, to see if this would change our level of intimacy, communication, and overall marital health.

The big question being does daily sex really make a difference in a relationship?

This was all inspired by an article that Hubby saw on HuffPost. Thanks HuffPost, thanks a fucking lot. But I was intrigued and agreed.

Day 1 of this challenged proved to be interesting. What happened was absolutely…nothing. Instead of foreplay and sensuality, we engaged in fighting and screaming. Something silly sparked a disagreement, to which neither of us would back down, which then turned into an epic display of two crazy, passionate people trying to make a point.  Using really loud voices and really, really bad language.

If you’ve never seen an Irish gal and a Sicilian fight, it’s quite an experience.

So needless to say, when it was all over, the last thing I wanted to do was have sex. I went to bed exhausted, angry and hurt. He went down to his man cave to do…whatever.

Not quite what I planned, but it happens. Married people fight, and sex may suffer.

Let’s see what happens on Day 2.
