5 Ways Moms Say 'No' to Sex

5 ways moms say no to sexOnce you become a mom, there are already plenty of excuses for not having sex. In fact, it often seems that the sun and the moon have to align perfectly in order to get some get-down time when no one is sleeping, has the flu, or is taking one of the kids to yet another birthday party. Still, if you really want to give non-verbal cues to your partner, why not go the extra mile and try one of these messages that screams, "Don't even think about it tonight, honey. You're not going there."

(If you actually like having sex with your partner, please use this list as a cautionary tale.)

1. Dress Like You Just Don't Care

Sure you could break out the acid wash mom jeans, but why not just say you've completely devoted your days and nights to inhabiting your child's world? The Koobli (as seen above) will certainly keep you protected from dirty toddler hands and dirty husband talk. Oh, look! There's a man version too!

2. An Evening With the Real Housewives

Definitely invite your husband to watch, but be very clear that the night will not end until Parts 1 and 2 of the reunion show have been viewed and tweeted about. 

3. Costco-Sized Midol Bottle by the Bed

It's stereotypical, because it's true. If your significant other doesn't get the hint by the huge pain reliever bottle you're clutching, let out a well-timed moan.

4. Integrate Baby Talk Into Your Daily Convos

Because isn't he a cutsie-wootsie lil' hubby?

5. Take a Facebook Lover

Because nothing says, "I don't care about my actual life" like living for the next status update from your high school sweetheart. Or co-worker. Or cute dad at pick-up. Really, anyone else who is as checked out as you are*.


*Please note, if you really don't ever want to have sex with your partner, it's time to seek some marital counseling.

LOL yeah right afraid NONE of those would work for me.  I just have to say "date for XXXX" naming the day and he's good with that.  Why make up a bunch of stuff if you just aren't in the mood??

If I am really too tired, I make a plan for the next night. As for the rest, they don't matter in my marriage because I usually initiate by saying let's go to bed early and get naked. Really doesn't matter what I'm wearing at that point.

If I don't want to have sex I just tell him.
