When I was supposed to be working yesterday, I was IM-ing with my Dear Husband. He was politely and nicely reading my Healthy Living posts because he knows that makes me very happy.
But he had a few concerns about one of my recent sex stories.
Cafe Kristen: You're probably right.
DH: Also, you say that sex boosts immunity. Maybe if you'd, um, you know, I wouldn't have had to go on antibiotics last week when I had a sinus infection.
CK: Very funny.
DH: You said sex burns calories, and you know we're both trying to lose a few pounds.
DH: I want to add that a Harvard University study from 2004 found men who reported frequent sexual activity had a 33 percent lower risk of cancer.
CK: Wow. I should write about that.
DH: Another study found that sex has protective health benefits for men as we age.
CK: You're doing research?
DH: The bottom line is that if you want me to live long and be happy and healthy, maybe you should have tons of sex with me.
CK: I'm definitely writing about this!
Hee, hee. He's going to kill me. Do you think my husband needs a little more nooky? I think he does. And I do, too. We've just been too busy lately, and not the right kind of busy, if you know what I mean. This year, what to get him for Valentine's Day is a no-brainer.
What do you plan to get your honey for Valentine's Day?
