"Well Dear, we're married, and have 3 small kids, the reality is that we're not going to have as much sex as we used to, not for now anyway."
It's good to know about other's normalcies, not because everyone should be "normal," but because it can certainly help to minimize the amount of guilt that you might feel for not being good enough.
We often think that normal is better than what we are, setting ourselves up for not being happy with ourselves.
It can also give you a sense of peace, knowing that you're not the only one in your situation.
Moms, rest assured, that if you're not having sex a whole lot right now, you're not the only one.
So, here are the results to the poll.
"How Often Do You Have Sex?"
64% of Moms are having sex about 0-3 times a week
26% of Moms are having sex about 3-5 times a week
5% of Moms are having sex about 5-10 times a week
And, 2% of Moms are having sex about 10 + times a week
If anyone is interested, I fit into 3 of the 4 categories, depending on the week. But, I checked off 5-10, although my husband begs to differ! He thinks we belong in th 0-3 category, lol.
Why is it that men always think that they get less than they actually get, and they always want more, more, more - it's because they are MEN.
Maybe I ought to keep score, but I'm not that kind of a gal. We'll just have to agree to disagree.
