Default Why is recreational sex the first to go

after having children?

I mean honestly, it takes what 30 minutes to an hour out of ones "busy" life.

I do recognize that timing is a factor but, all too often I hear couples complain that they have no time for each other and that sex is minimal to gone.

And yet, these same people see something walk by and they are the first to dang near spooge themselves. Apparently, the desire is still there so, why is the time "given up"?

Before marriage, rabbits have a hard time keeping up. After marriage, there are still some places you haven't played in. Post children, even porcupines seem to have sex more often than do married couples.

Ohh, and I ask this on behalf of one of my "friends" issues. Ummm, really.


Seriously.

I'm married with children and you have to know two things.

1. You have to make time for sex whenever and wherever you can.

2. Pursuant to #1, aloe is very good for carpet burns.

Okay. Someone contributing something. To this I add;

3. A couple is better than solo.

4. #2 also helps with chaffing.

Well, with infants sometimes it's damn near impossible to get more than 6 hrs or sleep a night. But after 3-4 months at the most, that baby should be hitting the sack at 8pm or 9pm max. All three of my kids go to bed at 8:30pm, which leaves plenty of time for extracuricular "activities". Bedtime for me is usually 11pm, so that gives me what, like 2 hours and 25 minutes for other stuff???

Well i'm a new dad (son is 10 months) and certainly my drive is the same if not greater. I'm even more attracted to my wife now that she's had our baby. Seems to me my 'problem' is that she's always tired. She does most of the feedings (breast) and is the one that takes him to daycare (across the street from her work) so she admittedly handles him more and is likely more tired.

So what do i do? Well i try to do a bit more cooking, help in other ways...but as she's his primary food source...there is only so much I can do. Point being we don't do it as much as we used to...maybe 3x a week now. I try to pick up slack whenever i can so she isn't so tired.

At least i have other projects now...working on a kegerator. I can only hope that as our son starts learning to feed himself and he's weaned that she'll have more energy.

Signed...sex starved homebrewer.

That being the direct result of the lack thereof, is it unreasonable that when your favorite is no longer on the menu that you eventually start looking at a substitute?

Is there not a time when "begging" the chef becomes un-dignified or pointless?
