#The Flinger Family

Me: “You know, I actually know people that try to have s.e.x multiple times a week.”

Him: In complete disgust “Why? Are they trying to have kids?”

Me: Laughing “Because they love each other?”

Him:  “Oh, well, good for them.”

Me:  “I know I know, it’s kind of like High School right now.”

Him: “No, we got a lot further in High School.”


  1. Don’t they know it’s better when you wait?  Well, ok, that’s a dirty, dirty lie, but it helps get ya through the dry spells.

  2. That made me shudder.  Multiple times?  What are they, robots? hehe

  3. LOL!  We tell ourselves it goes in spurts.  One month we’ll be all over each other, the next two months, nothin’.  Granted, some of that may be because dh is out of town or working 65-hour weeks, but still.

  4. I’m with Lanna on the spurts.
    Actually, we’ve been on a weekends only kick lately, with the high school type “just add alcohol” inducement.
    We’re just so damn tired.
    It’s the four kids that made us tired, and all the sex we had to get them, we sort of screwed ourselves into that vicious cycle, eh??

  5. We used to “do it” 4+ times a week.  Really. Right up until Ben became mobile.  Since then its more like once—maybe twice—every week to ten days.

    But we’ve been told we aren’t normal.

  6. Hahahah… so true. We’ll go a week or two without having sex, and then BAM! It’s like we’re newlyweds all over again, screwing like rabbits for days on end.

    That was the worst part of pregnancy for me- I had never been hornier, but I was put on pelvic rest at 6 weeks. (Plus, my husband was not exactly attracted to my changing body.) I was so frisky that we DTD less than a week after Brody popped out.

  7. PS: I would STRONGLY discourage against DTD less than a week postpartum, even if you haven’t suffered any sort of birth-related hay-hay trauma. Your husband will think that it’s the green like to go back to having sex 3-4-5 times a week. HA! I don’t think we did it again for 3 months. I was so over it. raspberry

  8. Oh, y’all, I once heard if you put a coin in a jar for every time you did it your first year and then took a coin out every time you did it all the rest of your marriage, you’d never get all the coins out of the jar.

    I laughed when I heard this (as a newlywed). But I’m thinking we should’ve tried it. I bet we’d have enough coins in the jar still to purchase a car.

  9. HAHAHAHA!  I heard the same thing about the coins.

    My response would be they whoever “they” are they are lying. wink

  10. So with you on this one. Sadly.

  11. I’m so there, it’s unreal.  Are you sure you weren’t spying in one of MY Friday nights?
