7 Sexy Things I Don't Do Anymore Since Having Kids

Mom Moment 22

7 sexy things I don't do anymore since having kidsAs much as I want to believe that having kids shouldn't affect your sex life, I'd be a big fat liar if I said it didn't. And it's not just because I'm much busier now and pretty darn tired, though that certainly does help matters.

Some things -- well, a lot of things -- just aren't as fun as they used to be, and if I had my druthers, I'd probably never do these 7 sexy things ever again.

1. Sex in a moving car: Let's face it, I'm rarely alone in the car with my husband, and if I am, I'm enjoying the peace and quiet and not trying to hop on top of him or give him oral sex. And call me a fuddy duddy, but it's kind of dangerous.

2. Sex in a parked car: Seriously, was I ever that desperate that I had to squish myself into a car to get laid? Maybe it's because I'm pretty tall, but no thanks. I'll take my bed any day.

3. Upside-down sex: It seemed like crazy awesome fun back in the day, but now I just get really dizzy. And I feel like I'm going to get hit in the face with my post-four-kids boobs. 

4. 69: Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of 69, but in actuality, you're always bent in a weird position and it's more uncomfortable than actually satisfying.

5. Sex with the bright lights on: I don't mind a little bit of light, but man, when the sun is shining and all the lights are on, I feel like I'm having sex on a stage and not in the privacy of my own home. Mood lighting, please!

6. Hand jobs: To be clear, I don't mind hand jobs that lead to something else, but the pure stand-alone hand job leaves much to be desired, at least for me, anyway.

7. Phone sex: Maybe it's because my husband and I rarely talk on the phone anymore, but I'd just as soon wait until he gets home to get it on than waste calling minutes.

What sexy things do you do less of now that you're a parent?

#3?  hmmmm, might have to try that sometime...hopefully won't wind up needing to call 911 or anything.

In full agreement about hand jobs though. Unless it's foreplay, there's nothing in it for the woman and sex should be a shared experience...not assisted masturbation.

Upside down? Whoa! The thing that's changed most for me is the noise level. B.C. (before children), we lived in the country on five acres and could primal scream if I wanted. Can't do that now ... in town with neighbors and never a kid that sleeps at the same time and the others and still would have to be mindful about keeping quiet. :(

Being a military wife who goes to visit her parents for up to 3 weeks at a time, car (moving or parked)sex is necessary. As is phone sex due to frequent deployments. You may not be into giving a HJ, but i guarantee your husband wi be pleasantly surprised and will put a kot more effort into making you happy (both in and out of the bedroom). I'm all for no more upside down, or bright light sex, but everything else is a go.

With the exception of #1 (I was never stupid enough to attempt that), I am so glad that I haven't lumped myself into the "I can't do this anymore because I'M A MOM" category.

funny how women always think its all about them (re:5) and then will make that claim about men and demonize them.Heaven forbid any of you actually do something that isn't ALL about you-even once in awhile...zzzzzzzzz
