2010 Sex-periment Challenge


It's February. The month of loooooooove.

So, what better time than to put out a big, fat challenge to all of us in the whacka-whacka department?

It was a year ago that my husband and I had seven straight days of sex, beating the Ed Young Jr.'s and only being outdone by one other couple (who, I'm pretty sure, have sexual organs made of steel - is that a "missionary" thing?). I've been wondering why I haven't asked the rest of you to join in. It was such an interesting (sometimes itchy, sometimes awkward, sometimes just-get-er-dun and ALWAYS challenging) experience. I wasn't sure Michael would be up for it again (bu-dum-bum-CHING!), but he was all, "Why not?"

So, here is the challenge: in the month of February, have more sex than you are currently having. YOU decide. Do you want to try for one full week? Two nights in a row may be a big step for you. Heck, I've been in libido hell and kept the goods to myself for months on end. So, if you're in that predicament, you may want to plan for one actual sexual encounter this month. Because, seriously, planned no-frills sex is ALWAYS better than no sex at all.

The point is to get us connecting again, physically, with our spouses. In case you haven't been around long, I've run the whole gambit on whoopie (for encouragement, you can read everything I've written on the subject here).

I'll be checking each Monday to keep us all on track. The hubster and I will be doing another week-long venture, but have not yet set a start date.

So, make a goal. Write it down. And (for lack of a better term) ... DO IT!

you are just so awesome!

ange said...

if you do the 40 day sex diet it helps. 40 days of sex makes a woman lose weight, makes you feel more appealing, and heck it is free and fun!
and with 9 kids in the house it can be very creative

Kim said...

I'll think about it ... but since I'm almost 37 weeks pregnant? Let's get serious - sex is not exactly foremost on my mind :D

Christine said...

Ah, Kim ... that's the point. Has nothing to do with libido. Just good, old fashioned get-at-it.

Last year I was sick the whole week and ... well .... let's just say we were dealing with lots and lots of behaviors in the house which were way, way, way, way not pretty (and not bloggable). I had zero desire.

Like ... zero.

Get all Nike and just do it!

dbmamaz said...

Remember, Kim, there are hormonse in semen that can soften the cervix! I cant believe, tho, that I feel chicken to put this on my blog . . . i used to be so wild! But its a new blog . . . i'll think about it. Umm, think about seeing if dh is willing first, I guess. Cuz it would certainly seem hypocritical to post it and not take the challenge!

we must withdraw (pun intended) from this competition this year ... we would love to beat you badly some other time though. Earthquakes wreck your sex life. Just so you know.

Christine said...

Notice I could have waited to do this several months from now ... but planned it while you were still dealing with the earthquake handicap. I'm no fool.

Sexual organs of STEEL, I say!

ohchicken said...

what if one's spousalness is not recognized by law? still qualify? i'd hate to be disqualified on a technicality.

Christine said...

chicken, you have to have TWICE as much sex to make up for it. And none of this, "But I'm pregnant and sick all the time ..." blah, blah, blah. Buck up, soldier. Put on some Carmen and rock the house.

I went into labor with two different children from getting with it! First one started started contractions and I had a baby less than 12 hours later, the other one my water broke and I had a baby an hour later! Of course, it doesn't work everytime. Our daughter wouldn't budge no matter how much we did it!

NeeCee said...

I talked to my husband and he's up for the challenge. In fact, he wondered why I hadn't mentioned this challenge before. LOL

Kerrie said...

Been looking for an excuse to try the 40-day thing anyway- thanks for providing it. :) I'm in.

Brenda said...

This is going to bring you some whacky google searches : ) lol!

Kim said...

Well Christine, fine. I'll talk to my husband about it.

Funny thing is, he wants this baby to stay put for as long as possible and is trying to AVOID having sex right now!! LOL

Shan said...

It's time for THIS already? I merely misplaced my libido before but since discovering anti-depressants over the summer, it packed up and totally moved out!

I was going to ask you about this actually because you and M. seemed to be having threesomes with your meds. ;)

Alright, I tried the week bit last time and things seemed to be getting wounded by day three. I'll set a goal of more.

Sorry, I can't put such a button on my blog without both our parents suspecting what goes on at my house. (blush)

Amy said...

Ok! So I finally sent my Husband your blog site. Yesterday I listened to you talk about Therapeutic Parenting and thought we could use some of the information you are providing when we parent. I also checked your blog off and on all day to see if you had made anymore videos. Just would like to say glad you didn't post a video with this post! So, back to my story, last night he opened your blog and found the sex challenge. He's like a kid in the candy store! I will have to revisit the therapeutic parenting tips at a later date! We are taking the challenge!

Jennifer said...

I am with Kim and almost 37 weeks pregnant, but at this point I will try anything to get this little one out. So I am up for the challenge!

Jessi Hacker said...

Givens family...My hubby broke my water with my first, lol!

Kristine, I completely agree with you. I tend to be of the belief that when all else fails you can have the physical connection. There have been times when I am so stressed and so aggravated, and definately had the edge taken off by the hubby.

It's a mindset I think. There were definitely times when I did not "feel" like having sex. But I was always glad I did.

Of course that also means being honest with your spouse and saying "um no over there, lol"

You gotta speak up for what you want ladies!

ldw said...

AWWWW - this is so NOT fair!!!

prenticefamily said...

I have major libido problems right now and decided to just put my issues on the shelf and initiate last night. I may not have enjoyed myself but our (husband and I) interactions, conversations, disagreements today have been so much easier to navigate.

I feel like this is the beginning of the reestablishment of our friendship that had gone stale instead of just being parenting partners.

Thanks for being the kick in the pants I needed. <3

Christine said...

ldw, you can have sex with YOURSELF! *wink* heh. heh.

Prenticefamily, I am so very, very, very, very, very, very happy for you. It DOES open a door to so much more (I totally rhymed).

Did I mention I'm happy for you?

Givans Family said...

We are IN! What's the record btw?

:)De said...

LOL @ Idw as I am in the same boat, but leave it to Christine to not leave out the single ladies. ~Smile~

LOL! Well, that is so true! And maybe myself and I can get along a bit better! We need bonding too!

Summer said...

We actually made it 6 days straight, and it was pretty fun. Then I got sick and I'm just too tired and blah to even consider sex.

Stori said...

This is just what we needed! We have recently adopted 2 baby boys (now 11 months and 21 months) fromthe D.R. of Congo. It's been 8years since I have had babies and I was just exhausted! But I am a competitive lady and brought this to my husband. He quickly agreed. And now I have a lot more energy! Thank you!
