Daily Sex

Why am I not surprised that the most emailed article on the Times site today is the one about two recently published books about married people having sex every day? As in, every single day. As in, 365 days in one book and 101 nights in the other.

What I’d love to know is who’s sending it to whom. Is it wives to husbands, or vice versa? Is it woman to best friends, or men to co-workers? Hell, is it wife to wife, husband to husband?

Did you send it to your spouse? Will you now that you've seen it?

Um, no and no.

I read it too. Interesting concept, but ummm, no.

If I were a betting woman, my money is on husbands to wives along with a little note like, "Read this and thought it was INTERESTING..."

Huh. I don't know that I am all that opposed really. I sleep better....

Probably a lot of women are sending it to either their husband or boyfriend.

But I'll be covering all my bases (as it were) by making sure they both get a copy.

funny, niobe. i would have thought that it's the HUSBANDS sending it to the WIVES -- the implication being, "See? See what other people are doing?"

And as for the other questions, no. And no.

Haven't read the article yet...I'm just relieved that you didn't ask me to send something else to my husband, ya know, enough is enough and that's sure not 365 days a year!

Life As I Know It said...

No and No.
Actually, no and Hell No.

That's funny - I just read that article today and was hoping that my husband has no way of finding out about it.

I can't read it. I have a headache.

I read that article and kept my mouth shut!

I've heard of this before -- only it was every night for a week. (A whole year? Really?)

I really wish I could do it!

It would just be impossible at the moment. Unless we wanted to pay thousands on babysitting and maybe lose our jobs.

I'm in total denial. I keep thinking that at some point, when our lives settle down, we'll just go back to the every single day thing. It's like thinking I am going to get my convertible back and be a size 8 again. I can't face the inevitable decline.

Since I was trying to conceive and am restarting then I can say that my cheeks had that youthful glow. But seriously, I was late for meetings, etc.

Anyway, I'd be the one to send it to him and he'd be like--'Yeah, right. Remember when you said we were going to be vegetarians?'

I realize there's an unspoken rule that we aren't supposed to talk about actual sex on the mommynet--just allude. Sorry for breaking that rule.

I'm tired just from reading about it.

I'm guessing it gets forwarded with a lot of eye-roll emoticons and tee-hees. 'Cause really? Who the hell wants that much sex? Not me. Especially not on sad days and moody days and thinky days... Face it, there are sex days and then there are not-sex days and a couple with a good relationship can figure out the balance.

I think it was WIVES sending it to HUSBANDS with the explanation that all men involved in the scientific research were dead in less than two weeks and that the appropriate amount of sex is the third Tueday of every month.

But what do I know, I'm not married.

My husband and I both saw that on some morning "news" show over the weekend, and I'm pretty sure we both laughed a little "pffthth" under our breaths and looked away. There was no time to comment on it. The baby was napping and there were things to get done.
