Sometimes I just need to learn to keep my mouth shut. If you missed The Today Show on Tuesday morning, then you missed this crazy story about the couple that challenged themselves to have sex for 101 days...yeah, I did say have sex for 101 DAYS! I know, they're crazy. And oh yeah, he wrote a book about it. How could he not.
The whole time I was watching this story, I was either laughing or saying out loud 'crazy.' The reason I was laughing was for the simple fact that yeah you had sex for 101 days, and you're now talking about it on National television. And I can only imagine what Ann Curry was thinking as her eyes appeared to be popping out of her head the whole time, let alone the rest of America. If you go on to read the comment section beware, they've got some braggers on there, that apparently having sex for 101 days is nothing to them because their record seems to be 1000 times a year. Blah, blah, blah!
So, here's where I learned my lesson though. Because I thought the story was so comical, I decided to email the link along to my husband, stating check out these crazy people. Well, he hasn't dropped the subject since. He keeps insisting we try it, better yet because our lucky number is 7, let's do it 107 days daily. What have I done? What does he think I am, wonder woman. OK, I'll admit it, I've obviously been thinking about this too. Don't ask me why because I honestly don't think we could pull it off. I still can't figure out how this couple pulled it off (what about her period? What if you just plain didn't want to? )Today though, I even thought about starting a competition with one of our friends. Nothing crazy, but ya know how when you're on a diet and you get encouragement from your friends that are also on a diet? Kind of like that.
So what do you think, are these people crazy? Do you think it's something worth trying? One thing the couple did say it did for their relationship is that at the end of the day, it wasn't about the sex it was about the time spent together, the intimacy and isn't that really what sex is all about? Being close together and sharing your love. I think we all could use more of that. I know my life gets pretty hectic between kids, job, house, cleaning, laundry, family, etc, etc. I tend to let myself and my marriage go and get put on the back burner and it's not suppose to be this way. What about you? How do you find ways to balance out your life? I'm not totally committed to this 101 day thing yet, but I may go buy the book. Just do it
