Well, today is day 4 of the K-Y Brand Intimacy Experiment, and I have to say, if we were to actually be graded on this assessment, we would get a big, stinkin' F. Yesterday we talked about how you can settle into a relationship and as time goes by, the "new love" feeling fades away to a degree. Well, today was about assessing things that we tend to do in front of our partners that we may not even think twice about because we're so darn comfortable with them that may be hindering things in the romance department. I'm sure that anyone who has ever been in a long-term relationship is guilty of at least one of these things. (Or several, if you're anything like us!) Apparently, part of the fuel for lasting sexual desire is to keep some novelty and mystery as part of the relationship. Yes, you may consider your mate to be your best friend, but do you really NEED to clip your toenails in front of them? How about leaving the door open when you use the restroom? These are just a couple of the things we are guilty of, by the way! But the real question is, would you have done these things in front of your partner in the beginning of your relationship? I have to say that Dan and I were immediately incredibly comfortable with one another, even in the beginning. Probably because we got along so well and have known eachother for a very long time. So none of these kinds of things ever really phased me, nor did they kill the desire. Maybe it's different for everyone, though. Who knows?
Anyway, according to the manual, here are some of the obstacles to a smokin' sex life that many couples (including us) are guilty of. I will post after each item on the list whether or not these are offenses that we, as a couple, are guilty of partaking in. Feel free to check off the items that describe your life.
Stay tuned tomorrow for Day 5 of the K-Y Brand Intimacy Experiment!
