Let's Talk About S.E.X.-Bringing the "O" Back into Romance2.09.2015
Yep, you most definitely read the title of this post correctly. Today, we are going to talk about the big S word...Sex. For those who know me very well, they will tell you that I am definitely not one to shy away from this topic. I love absolutely everything about it. So, I think it's safe to say that Sex is a favorite past time and discussion topic of mine.
As you know, we love to keep things honest and insightful here at Mumsy. Which is exactly why I wanted to write about this sometimes controversial topic. Not to cause a heated debate about the dos and don'ts of sex, but to have an open and real conversation about one of the most important aspects of sex that I think we as women don't talk enough about.
Wanting nothing more than for this to be an educational and enlightening post, I decided to let my friend Britny take the reigns on this conversation.
Britny, first and foremost is a mother and wife. Living and loving life in Homer, Alaska. But, aside from celebrating 14 years of marriage to her husband and raising 4 beautiful children, Britny is also a consultant with Pure Romance; a company that focuses on empowering and educating women about sex in a professional environment. Which is why I asked her to do this. Britny really knows her stuff when it comes to sex; and I honestly think she is the the perfect woman to lead this discussion.
“I can’t remember the last time I felt excited about the idea of being intimate with my husband.”
“Ever since the birth of my first baby I don’t want sex—period. Now we have three kids and I just go through the motions.”
-37% feel that their time between the sheets ends too quickly
-84% of women have sex to get their guy to do more around the house
-50% believe our sex lives lack excitement and variety
-48% of women have faked an orgasm
-90% believe it is possible for sex to get better after years of being together
-60-75% of couples say their routine is marked by the “missionary position” every Saturday morning.
So, there you have it. Our first real conversation about Sex. As I said before, sex is a very important aspect of my life. And I hope it is for you too! However, if it's not, my greatest wish is that this feature will get you communicating more with your loved one about what you want out of the intimate side of your relationship; making it an enjoyable and truly bonding experience for you both.
