Just Do It?

While perusing the local book store, I came upon this book called Just Do It. The subtitle says "How One Couple Turned Off the TV and Turned On Their Sex Lives For 101 Days (No Excuses!)." Wow is all I could think. Sure, most couples have sex every day in the first month or so, but after that, it happens more like a couple times a week! It's a known fact that life gets in the way of sex but it seems like the middle-aged couple in this book weren't willing to stand for it anymore. They made a pact to have sex every day for 101 days straight, no matter what.

I'm in awe that any couple would try this sort of experiment as a way to rekindle their love. Do you think you and your partner could ever commit to this type of sexathon? Would agreeing to get it on every single day for over three months prove to be beneficial to your relationship, or do you think it would turn sex and intimacy into a chore?

I think of sex as a special thing. My boyfriend and I don't live together, and because of school and work, we only get to see each other a couple times a week. On which days we do have sex But I think if I had sex every day, it would get boring... you know?

i guess it depends on why you having sex. meaning were they trying to fix a realationship or just going at like rabbits? :) if trying to rekindle their love, they yea, i can understand. my man and i went a thru a real bad patch last summer when we weren't so sure of our emotions for each other. and the only way at that time he could really express his love for me was :sex. and we did, every day, sometimes two times a day for over 2 months. did it help, hell yes it helped. the closeness of it, i really can't describe how it really worked for us, cause what worked for us doesn't mean it works for others.

I think this exact topic was addressed recently. Well, I didn't respond then, so I will, now. I think a couple should do what makes them happy. Couples shouldn't feel like they have an unhealthy sex life, they're falling short of other couples, or feel bad about themselves because they don't have sex on a daily basis. One can also rekindle love by agreeing to have a date night every Saturday, go dancing once a week, set aside half an hour a day to cuddle, and the list goes on. There's to much emphasis on sex. Sure, it's important, but if a relationship has lost its romance, there are many more things that can be done other than a pact to have sex everyday for over three months. Have sex everyday because you want to, not because you think it's a fix-all cure for the relationship.

I don't think I could have the time for it.

This concept has already been written about in at least two books that were published this year. There's nothing new about it.

Sounds fun but not for the purpose to rekindle any lost connection but maybe just as a funny thing to "achieve". I don't understand how you could do that 100% because of periods, trips, illness though . . .I think though having a tv in the bedroom is the worst thing you can do to your sex life so we don't now and don't plan to ever have a tv in the bedroom. To each his own though- congrats for the couples that needed this and worked it out ;)

No, this is not for us. We're content with our sex life the way it is. My husband and I are very close. We've been together for over 10 years, and we're told we still look like newlyweds. We don't have to rekindle our love, as it never went out.

With the occurrances of my period, or him feeling sick, or my being sick, or spicy mexican and indian food, it's not an every day thing for us.

on the view, they talked about (and to) a couple who had sex every day for a year. it was a birthday present to him but became so much more. I'm pretty sure they wrote a book about it. I'm only 24 and i wouldnt be able to! plus when we both work all day, there's usually one of us who is just way too tired.
