As you build your lives together they inevitably become more and more hectic with stressful careers, financial pressure, demanding kids and an endless list of domestic duties. Finding time in your relationship to sit and talk, let alone the physical and emotional energy required to make love is difficult to say the least.
In one such attempt to keep complacency at bay and fan the fading flame, Charla Muller came up with a bold and unique 40th birthday gift for her husband: sex every day for a year. According to her book, 365 Nights, the gift idea went over pretty well and while her husband was sceptical, he was definitely willing. Despite hitting a low point around the tenth month where Muller referred to the gift as her "stupid idea", the determined couple saw it through to the end and had sex nearly every day for an entire year.
Spurred on by Charla Muller’s experience, and the success of her resulting book, many couples are taking up the challenge to spice up their relationship. So would you do it? Would you commit to having sex every day for a year?
Depending where you are at in your relationship the idea might sound anywhere from romantic or downright ridiculous. The challenge might seem doable when you’ve had a relaxing day at the spa and your partner has been showering you with affection, but what about those other days? The days when you have your period, you’ve been up with the baby all night or you’ve just had a fight. The true commitment behind this challenge quickly becomes apparent.
While committing to sex every single day might be a bit extreme, there is definitely something to be said for prioritising regular intimacy with your partner. Not only will it benefit your relationship, but your health and happiness, too.
