Mom Gets Real About 'Parent Sex' in Super-Honest Facebook Post

candace hallWhoever said parenting was sexy -- wait, nobody ever said parenting was sexy. That's because not only are all the duties involved with raising kids inherently unsexy (spit-up? diapers? Legos?), but all those duties also leave parents with no free time for doing anything sexy. That's why we love the extremely honest #AfterSex selfie one mom recently posted to Facebook!


Australian mom Candace Hall says she was tired of people on social media making it seem "that they have these amazing sex lives, and I wondered if that was true," as she told Mic.

"'Cause it sure as shit wasn't happening for us!"

So Hall snapped a pic of herself and her husband after they somehow miraculously managed to have what she calls "parent sex," along with a hilariously detailed and commendably candid description of what, exactly, "parent sex" really means. Check it out: 

We had "parent sex" yesterday. You know what parent sex is, it's that 3.5 minutes you get in between changing nappies...

The struggle is real! Seriously, how many of us can relate? As universal as these experiences are, though, parents (at least the parents I know) hardly ever actually talk about this kind of thing. Maybe, maybe after five glasses of wine one of your girlfriends lets something slip about how she and her man can never seem to get it on because there's an octopus-like toddler taking up half their bed most nights. Maybe another girlfriend casually mentions that she stopped getting bikini waxes because, well, why bother? Or maybe you and your BFF walk past a Victoria's Secret while walking through the mall together and start laughing hysterically because, ha, remember lingerie?!

My personal favorite on Hall's list of observations?

"Where you position the bed to have one foot against the door because for a loud bunch of kids, yours can be pretty quiet when they're sneaking up on people."

Preach, sister!
