Married sex gets a bad rap, but hey — we once believed the earth was flat! Forget the rumors of marriage monotony and infrequency; there’s plenty of toe-curling intimacy to be had between husband and wife.
Check out this list of reasons why married sex trumps singlehood sex and then get your husband alone, stat!
1. Morning sex
Morning sex anytime you want it — you share the same bed! You might have to set your alarm a little earlier, but it’ll be worth it.
2. You can initiate
You know that he wants you — he married you, after all!
3. You don’t have to look perfect
He’s seen you when you’re exhausted and after you’ve gotten out of the shower when you forgot to take off your eye makeup — and he still loves you. Sex is stress-free when you don’t have to worry about having the perfect makeup, the perfect lingerie, or even being perfectly groomed.
4. Be the boss
You can be vocal or bossy without fear of rejection. Fear of rejection is so mid-20s.
5. The daylong foreplay
The touch in the kitchen, the look during a drive, the accidental innuendo that thankfully goes above your kids’ heads, the flirty emails — it all makes it so much hotter when you finally can get each other alone.
6. Show and tell
You can ask for what you want without worrying about being too forward. He’ll call you in the morning — scratch that, you’ll be in the same bed together when you wake up in the morning!
7. Sneaking is sexy
Stolen moments feel illicit and sexy, especially if you’re sneaking around while the kids are (briefly) napping.
8. You can experiment more
You know each other so well that you can be open about your fantasies, desires, and curiosities. You can try your hand at dirty talk and not feel ridiculous.
9. The beauty of quickies
Some sex is better than no sex. You can make up a quickie signal with your live-in mate and go at it during any time of the day or night, whenever the mood strikes.
10. Say goodbye to STDs
You’ve both been tested and you’re in a monogamous love nest, so now the nerve-wracking risk is gone!
11. The birth control plague
In school you were consumed with fear about getting pregnant, but now you and your husband can plan when to try to have a baby, which means less birth control concerns.
Booty calls are never far away — in fact, one is probably down the hall from you right now!
13. Laughing while lovin’
Before you really know someone, a bedroom act can be embarrassing. With your husband, you can try something and if it fails, laugh instead of feeling self-conscious.
14. He knows…
how to turn you on. You’ve had a lot of practice together, after all.
15. Sexual healing (no, we’re not kidding)
Sex in a marriage can help you both get past ruts. Getting cozy in between the sheets will foster a sense of intimacy even if things aren’t perfect in other aspects of your marriage.
16. No weird surprises
You’ve met your husband; in fact, you know him quite well. He won’t all of a sudden ask you to call him King whatever (thank God) or play out a strange fantasy without giving you a heads up first.
17. No pretending
You don’t have to pretend to be into that weird acrobatic move or that tiring role-play narrative if you’re just not feeling it.
18. Practice makes perfect
You have no reason to hold back. By now you’ve become one another’s gifted sex god and sex goddess.
19. Memory eraser
A well-timed seduction will take his mind off the fact that you forgot to pick up his favorite beer when he asked you twice or that you’re all about to have dinner with your parents.
20. Work hard, play harder
He’ll do any chore you ask if he knows nookie is coming right after.
21. Sincerity — aww
He’s your husband, so he’ll say sweet and sincere things, and actually mean them. You think your butt has seen better days? He thinks otherwise!
22. The post-coital cuddle
It never gets old.
23. Sex is transporting
Dinner, daycare and dry cleaning can lose their luster fast. Sex with your hot husband can break up your day and keep you glowing well into the night.
24. Relive your favorite romp
By now, you’ve had a lot of sex together. Part of the fun of having such a long history is that you can talk about your favorite times and do your best to recreate the heat!
25. Love tops all
