30 Days Of SexA couple years ago, Jane and I heard about this idea floating around for married couples to have sex every day for 30 straight days. Before the Relevant Church in Florida hit the news wires with this idea, we heard it first from Kidder Kaper on his Sex Is Fun podcast (MP3 / iTunes / PDF).

The idea is to engage your partner, with some level of mutually agreed upon intimacy, at least once daily for an entire month. This challenge plays out any number of ways depending on your situation. For parents like us, kids can be the biggest obstacle to spending naked time together… by the time they’re all in bed Jane and I are exhausted and don’t feel much like having sex. For us, the 30 day sex challenge is about discovering new ways to create opportunities for connection.

As if the appeal of getting laid every day weren’t enough, claims made by the proponents of this exercise include; happiness, improved intimacy, a closer bond, and a myriad of health benefits. And did I mention a guaranteed score every day? What’s not to love?

We are about a week into our third attempt. We try the challenge about once a year and the first two times ended prematurely due to (ironically) health issues. So far so good on this third go-round… Dick’s getting action every day and loving it!

If you are one of those couples who thinks 30 consecutive days of sex would not be much of a challenge, try the 365 day plan! Charla Muller gave her husband quite a birthday present, she even wrote a book about it: 365 Nights – A Memoir of Intimacy

Happy fucking!
