It’s been hard.
Well, no, not literally. But when your day-to-day is spent chasing around your little rugrat, cleaning up messes you didn’t make and trying to get just one more minute of shuteye or how your romantic nights are spent finally eating dinner together or falling asleep, head to shoulder, on the couch-- well, you start to get a little more than frustrated.
It seems every time the mood ignites and the flames start to roar-- clothes are flying, tongues exchanging… a whine is whispered. Soon the whine becomes a cry. And then the cry becomes a scream-- and damn it! now you have to go into that little boy’s bed because it’s three in the morning. You grab him; and rock him to relax; get him to go to sleep… and then next thing you know-- it’s eight am.
Sex. Gone. Lost with the snoring. Left with the time.
Then you begin to lust after it! ‘Oh, let’s in the shower…’ wink wink! Soon after you’re stumbling into the bathroom; bruising your shins; realizing the water is hotter than you anticipated; tip-toeing over squirty, squeaky bath toys and you realize: this is ridiculous. It’s just never going to happen!
Really? Seriously? Am I on some candid-porno television show?
I love sex, I do. But hell, these days, I’m a slut for sleep.
Just think: sex is fun, playful and brilliantly romantic, all together. And all that excitement is great, but as soon as that climax is over and those two minutes of pure emotion and bliss start to subside… well, all I really want is my body sprawled out, head on pillow, eyes glued tight and my brain in shut down mode. Sleep, to me, is another form of purity; all about relaxing and recharging, peace and calm. Doesn’t that sound refreshing?
The answer is yes.
These two are very much similar; both bring me happiness and pleasure; both are highly necessary for survival. These days it’s not easy to get clothes off, sex on. Being the glue in the family takes time, energy and work. You’re tired. You’re not feeling sexy. You don’t have the time… There is always an excuse! Forget them for twenty minutes and get it on.
And so, I have created a short play-by-play on
SEX, SLEEP and SURVIVAL--
