Ep. 35: What Sex Looks Like Once the Kids Come Along

So I posted a meme recently that said, “Remember the sex you had before the babies came?” and received over 100 comments that run the gamut. Here are just a few:

“My general observation is that sex after babies is less. A lot less. For women it becomes more of a ‘have to do’ than an ‘I get to do.'”

“I have a 7 1/2 year old daughter who is amazing at being birth control. Lol. Won’t sleep without her mother.”

“The same after babies if you know how to manage your kids. Make ’em go to bed early and you can have 2 hours of fun every night.”

“Teenagers and all our bedrooms are too close together. We are looking for another house!”

“Yes, but the the one after they go away for college is SO MUCH BETTER!” 😉🤭🤣

And my personal fav…”Yes! 9 times in one night. It was glorious. 3 kids later and we joke about having sex 2012 style. Still do it frequently but wow is it different. When you have to hurry up because a baby is crying, etc. I get why so many women lose interest after kids.”

Join Andre and me to discuss sex after the kids come along and what parents can do to keep their sex life strong in each stage of parenthood.
