"Let's talk about sex baby, let's talk about you and me...."
This afternoon, hubby sent me an article on HuffPost about a writer that agreed to have sex with her husband every day for one year. And blog about it. The whole idea being if this would change their level of intimacy, self esteem issues, communication skills, overall relationship, yada yada yada.
I’ve seen this done before and have always been intrigued. I read the article, laughed and said eh, why not?! But with certain conditions.
Here’s how the convo went:
ME: Every day? Oy, sounds like work. But cute article.
ME: Is this a hint?
HIM: Could be fun to try. Also give you awesome blog material.
ME: How about we start with every day for a month, then go from there…
HIM: OK, starting Sunday.
ME: Won’t you be exhausted after camping?
HIM: For sex with you. No. Please wear the Monkey PJs.
ME: HA! Sure, ya weirdo.
HIM: What, ME, ha.
And that, my friends, is how most contracts in life are agreed upon.
So starting Sunday, this 30 day challenge will begin.
Now don’t get me wrong – I LOVE sex. Like, a lot. I’m notoriously known amongst my friends for having the most crazy sex toy parties every year. My drawer of goodies, lotions and lubes would make most ladies blush. Vibrating tickle whips and bondage tape don’t scare me.
Believe it or not, us suburban woman have sex. In every way, shape and scenario imagined. And then some. City folk tend to think we live a life of strip malls, ballet practice, soccer games and monotony. When in all actuality, quite the opposite is true. I grew up in the city, south side specifically. I know how we think. But I’ve got a heads-up on my fellow southsiders, because I’ve seen and experienced shit out here in the ‘burbs that would blow most people’s minds.
Maybe somehow during this 30-day challenge I’ll share stories. But for now, I’ll start slow, one day at a time.
So here’s what the issue is: Being primarily a "mommy blogger", I will be going so far out of my comfort zone to write about sex. Every. Damn. Day. It’s not a part of me I openly share. But I'm up to the challenge. Pun intended.
