When life gets busy, one of the first things to go in a relationship is
se.x. Couples are too tired, too full, too stressed, too distracted.
Simply put: not in the mood.
We get it — there are a million and one legitimate reasons not to have
sex tonight, tomorrow or the day after that. But there are plenty of
couples out there who are doing the deed five, six, seven or more
times a week . We recently asked married HuffPost readers who have
se.x every night (barring things like sickness, business trips or other
extenuating circumstances, of course) how it has improved their lives
and relationships. Below are 13 good reasons to get it on with your
spouse on a near daily basis.
1. It provides some much-needed couple time.
“My husband and I have se.x every night because it’s a moment in the
day that is just about the two of us. We are parents to a toddler, so
when we lay him down for bed each night, we can then spend the rest
of the night expressing how we feel about each other physically.
Having se.x allows us to be passionate, to show affection and we
enjoy pleasing each other.” – Christie M. of Arkansas; married 3 years
2. It leads to more PDA outside of the bedroom.
“We’re very physically expressive with one another, even when we’re
not having se.x. We hold hands a lot, he slaps my butt when I’m
working in the kitchen, I nuzzle his neck when he’s working on
research papers at the desk.” – Jesse N. of Ontario, Canada; married
less than one year
3. It can be a workout if you do it right.
“When you have four kids and no time, se.x is the best exercise.” –
Tera M. of Oklahoma, married less than one year
4. It gets you out of your head for a little while.
“Se.x for me, and now for my husband since we’ve gotten together, is
a complete escape from reality. We are both very much into role-
playing and it’s such a wonderful feeling to not have to be me for a
while, to completely shut off from our crappy day-to-day existence and
strictly be about ourselves and our enjoyment.” – Sara C., of Panama
City, Florida; married one year
