I remember this story I heard a long time ago, about a motivation expert who was holding a seminar. To start thing off he asked his audience how many people had sex that day. About 10% of the audience put their hands up. He then asked how many people had sex at least once a week, and roughly 70% put their hands up. Next he asked how many had sex at least once a month and 20-30% put their hands up.
There was a bit of a buzz in the room by then, and when he asked how many had sex once a year, a little geeky looking guy started jumping up and down, screaming excitedly, “Thats me, that’s me! I have sex once a year!”
The motivation expert, a little incredulous asked, “Really? Only once a year? Well, if that’s the case, I can’t for the life of me understand why your so excited about it?”
That little story leads into this post perfectly. I’ve found on more that one occasion that nothing builds up the sexual juices more than anticipation. When you’ve been married for awhile and especially if you have kids, there just doesn’t seem to be enough time for sex and you tend to squeeze it in when you can. It almost becomes robotic, and while it released the sexual urges, it’s not what you call particularly exciting.
What I reckon couples should do is to plan a special night where there will be no interruptions. See if you can offload the kids for the night so that you can let your inhibitions run wild.
One great way to get the juices going is to have a little play acting. Perhaps the little lady could dress up as a Dallas Cowgirl Cheerleader, or you could lead up to the big event by trying some adult style games.
The thing is that this is something that you should plan together for a future date. Seeing as Halloween is not all that far away, perhaps something with a Halloween theme is in order. Personally I reckon sex on Halloween would be a whole lot better than getting candy. Then again, why not have a bit of candy as well.
