A new study, funded by Westin Hotels, shows more than half (51%) of Americans surveyed chose to snooze. Just 10 years ago, a similar study found sex to be the priority -- with only 31% saying they'd rather sleep. No surpise that more men opted to have sex and no doubt, sleep after! The ladies on the other hand, said nighty night!
What do these results really say? Perhaps there is a correlation between lack of sex in relationships and divorce. Are we so stressed and overworked that we neglect to intimately connect with our mates? Sex is a way to maintain and nurture your bond. Without that physical touch, you may find your relationship mirroring that of room mates and not lovers. Ok, so you are just too tired and can't engage fully in the act of sex. Physical touch can involve embracing, caressing or kissing. That type of physical interaction is one element that distinguishes platonic relationships from more personal ones.
Sleep & sex are both essential. Spicy Wifey suggests a Sexy Slumber Party with your mate! Make an effort to get both in one night. Make it about getting in rest and sex. You can keep it simple, and set the mood and indulge in all the kissing and heavy petting you can until you fall asleep. Or go all out, get a room. Let your mate sleep first and wake them up with a little bit more than breakfast in bed!
Which would you rather do?
