My husband and I had some really, really *Bad Married Sex the other day. And it was awesome.
"Sex is like pizza. And there's no such thing as bad pizza." --Tom B
Let me explain....
It had been awhile and the husband was getting desperate. I was aware of this, but also all too aware of the million things on my holiday "To Do" list and that had been taking precedence for close to two weeks. Two. Weeks.
So even though I was NOT in the mood I knew I had to give it up or suffer the consequences: a moody, grumpy and, for all intents and purposes, useless husband. That was just not going to work around the holidays.
But let's be honest, I wasn't exactly gagging for it. I was doing my wifely duty - while trying to decide what to get the babysitter for Christmas - and that showed in our performance. It was some of the worst sex we've had to date.
About halfway through I thought about calling the whole thing off, but we were already undressed and the kids were halfway through a show so I hung in there.
Still, somehow yin found yang and we both got there in the end.
The funny thing was, not only did it change his mood, it changed mine. I felt lighter. Calm. Centered. Satisfied.
I went back to my "To Do" list with a spring in my step, humming a Christmas tune.
I wouldn't agree with Tom 100% - I've had plenty of bad pizza. But even bad pizza has it's advantages.
