Do You Have More or Less Sex Over the Holidays?

When it comes to the holidays, the quality of your sex life really can go either way. Spending time with your family might mean you're having less sex — either you're away from your significant other, relegated to separate bedrooms, or if you're single, you might be sequestered from the dating world. And it's hard to get in the mood if you're feeling lazy after a big holiday meal.

But the holidays also offer an opportunity to spice up your sex life along with your eggnog. All the cheer might make you appreciate your lover a little bit more, or maybe you have some time off to go on a romantic vacation before the new year. Not to mention, all those holiday parties might help you make a new love connection!

Less. We both live with our parents and come holiday time we NEVER get time alone. It's depressing.

Less. The winter kills it for me. I can't stand being cold and I'm just lazier in general until the warm weather returns. Come back summer!

I voted "more", although it's really about the same. Even if we visit family, we still try to make alone time for ourselves, which is what we did last night. Plus, after having dinner with his family, we were really in the mood. New Years is our 3rd anniversary, so of course we will be making some alone time then as well.

My boyfriend and I are farther away from each other, and both living with our parents on breaks. So, no privacy + living apart = no sex.

It matters on how busy it gets. If we spend the holidays at home, more. If we are traveling, less.

I would almost say it's about the same? When you're spending time with your family obviously not, but when my husband and I are spending our personal holiday time together... the opportunity seems to knock more...
