Three years has passed since Brittany Gibbons had sex every day for a year. 365 days of non-negotiable sex with her husband, Andy.
Three years on, the pair are no longer having sex every day (phew! – 1125 consecutive days of sex sounds like a lot of work, and I’m sure certain body parts would start complaining. Loudly).
But Brittany thought it was time for reflection:
“First, we learned that it’s hard and that’s normal,” she wrote for Good Housekeeping. ” Fitting sex into all of that is difficult, but for us, it’s necessary. Sex is what reminds us that we’re intimate partners and not just roommates in charge of keeping kids alive.”
“We learned the exact amount of sex life we need to keep us happy in our marriage, and we’re able to adjust our lives around that. Intimacy doesn’t always mean penetration. Sometimes it’s making out on the couch like teenagers, sometimes it’s Andy triple checking the DVR to make sure all my fall TV shows are set to record,” she added. “Finally, I learned that I am a better wife, a better mother and a better woman when I take the time to be secure in my relationship and selfish about feeling good about myself.”
