Afternoon Delight: Spicing It Up During the Day

| Sex

A healthy sexual relationship is as vital to a healthy marriage as healthy communication is, but we sometimes get so bogged down in the day-to-day craziness of parenthood that we forget about intimacy. Sexy time with your partner is one of the easiest activities to forgo once life gets hectic, but keeping things spicy could be the key to your sanity. The problem is that once your head hits the pillow at night, you're most likely too exhausted to even think about a romp in the hay. And once the alarm goes off in the morning, it's a mad dash to get the kids to the bus stop on time for once. So when else are you supposed to get intimate? During the day, of course.

An afternoon delight can be a welcome change in schedule. Instead of spending a (rare) lazy Sunday afternoon watching March Madness, force your hubby's eyes away from the TV for half an hour for a different kind of afternoon special. Not only will it spice up your afternoon, but also your relationship! Spontaneous sex can bring the two of you closer together and bridge a gap that may have been there before. We bet you'll be lovey-dovey and happy together for the rest of the day.

An afternoon delight can bring back creativity to the bedroom. After a while, it seems like there are only so many ways to get creative in the bedroom. To avoid getting stuck in a sexual rut, try an afternoon delight every once in a while. It may be a bit unnerving without the usual blanket of darkness or dim lighting, but stepping out of your comfort zone ultimately promotes growth in your sexual relationship.

An afternoon delight can alleviate a busy schedule. As much as we look forward to the weekends, sometimes Saturdays and Sundays are just as busy as Mondays through Fridays. If you've got a busy Saturday night, oftentimes by the end of the night, both you and your hubby will be exhausted and not ready to even think about sex. Instead of eliminating sex from your weekend completely, simply plan ahead and do the deed the afternoon before a busy night! You'll be able to enjoy a hot and sweaty session before a stuffing dinner or exhausting night of dancing. Plus, you'll be happy and glowing together later in the evening.
