Naked Time

Last Night, the Big Dude said, "By the way, I haven't forgotten Naked Time. I'm too sick tonight so - tomorrow night!".

There are three good things about that statement:

  • He brought it up, not me
  • He is keeping track of this issue by himself, with no prompting from me

If he follows through, we will actually have had some kind of sexual interaction five times in one month. In the past, whole years have gone by with less than that.

In the future, if anyone asks me what to do about a bad sex life, I'm going to say, "Have a baby! Its working for us!"

Are we talking the past month (ie, since October 14), or just calendar November?

Smiles and hugs to you both. . .

"if anyone asks me what to do about a bad sex life, I'm going to say, "Have a baby! Its working for us!"

And also, if I may add,

"Communicate"

which is what you have been doing really well at Emily.

Isn't it so much nicer when the other person initiates intimacy?

Hope the warm fuzzy feelings continue for you both :-)

I've never seen such a positive post about NOT having sex.

Which means he definitely is on his way to mastering the art of rejection. There is a right way to turn down sex! Even planned sex!

Hope the "reschedule" works out.

Ditto what BEC said.

Also, I think it's not so much that Big Dude has/lacks the skills to "keep track" of stuff like this, but that he has finally put your needs on his radar screen. And that should make you feel good, Emily!

So what you're saying is that I need to start spawning?

I'll tell SD you said so. I'm sure he'll be excited about the increase in sex. :P

Yes, the communication has been good. But then, I was communicating plenty before we had the baby. It just wasn't having much effect.

So I really do think having the Little Dude has made a difference - having him has really added a whole positivity about our relationship, greater commitment to working things out, etc.

So I'm the only mum I know whose sex life has *improved* after having a baby - mind you, we were coming off a pretty low base!
