Thanks Vandry, keep them coming. This confirmed what I already believed.

Thanks, Vandry. ... Joe Scott said something the other day about banana slugs having a ton of sex (iirc several times per day) which doesn't sound like it could be for purely reproductive purposes and I know a lot of statistical analysis says that couples only have sex on average every couple months or maybe couple of weeks (though that's likely under-reported because it relies on self-report data)... I dunno, it's kind of an odd question because there are several ways you can measure it. We definitely have the widest range within which we have sex (because we don't have a range), and that's one way to measure, though I wonder if we have the most actual sex on a given day or week within the "breeding range" -- which is harder to measure because of the need for self reporting. Among mammals in particular though, probably true.

you should read the book Come As You Are. I’m about halfway through and it is amaaazing.

Sometimes as wives we get so busy or caught up with work, kids, all types of things. That we end up tired and also neglect our spouses.

There are days one is really tired due to one thing or another or health reasons or emotional stress those days let's be honest with our spouses and tell them nicely our feelings and then schedule to have sex next time.

I discussed some other steps we can take to get in the groove.

I have really enjoyed watching this. I love the way you broke things down. Interesting how there are so many issues in relationships, but with the right kind of guidance, these issues can be resolved. Especially when you have two reasonable people willing to work on it. thanks.

Absolutely loved this video... alot of helpful tips. Women should also learn what turns them on and tickles their fancy if you know what I mean. Same concept as when I woman prepares for a party ... makeup, dressing and all the stuff to shine for her friends.. so also she should learn how to prepare herself for sex. Woman, know thy self ?
