So anyway, Day 6 of the K-Y Brand Intimacy Experiment is simple. And effortless, at least for us. You see, we don't need to do anything out of the ordinary at all. In a previous post, I stated that the hubby and I are that sickeningly sweet couple that is always kissing and hugging that makes a lot of people want to puke. Well, we are. So that's why today's challenge is easy as pie for us. You guessed it! Today's experiment is one all about TOUCH. How often do you touch your partner, affectionately, throughout the day? And no, I don't mean nookie, and I don't mean a dry peck on the cheek. Reserve those for your grandmothers! (The dry pecks, not the nookie, please!)
We touch constantly. I get literally dozens and dozens of kisses a day. It's the first thing he does when he gets home, and he continues to kiss me randomly throughout the day. Heck, I even have some artwork above our bed that says "Always Kiss Me Goodnight" that serves as a good reminder to us to do just that...even if we're tired...even if we're angry...even if one of us (him) ate some nasty, smelly onions....We ALWAYS kiss goodnight. And hello. And goodbye. And good morning. And then there's the "Oh, I am passing you in the hallway so you'd better grab a kissy" kiss, and then the "I'm gonna sneak up behind her, wrap my arms around her and kiss her while she's cooking dinner" kiss....and many, many more where that came from! You get the idea. We're so kissy I sometimes nauseate myself!And then there are the hugs. The nice, lingering embraces. I get tons of those, too. There will be times that we're sitting on the couch and I will be entering giveaways while he watches TV and he will randomly crawl over to me and wrap his arms around me and just hug me tightly. He does this a lot, and I love it! Unless, of course, he makes me lose my place and I don't remember which entries I have completed,lol. Then I might get just a tad annoyed, but only for a second. Who can stay mad when they're getting a nice, big hug? Not me!
Here are some good ways to incorporate positive, physical touch into your relationships:
- Hugs that last at least 30 seconds
- Holding hands
- Snuggling while watching TV or a movie
- Kissing...just because you can!
- Playing footsie, provided your hubby doesn't have nasty, gnarly feet
- Lightly touching his arm or leg while talking
- Offering a quick neck massage after a hard day at work
- Or anything else your heart desires! It can be nice, or it can be naughty. BE CREATIVE!
So I am telling you from personal experience, touching in a non-sexual way throughout the day DOES help lead to other things once the lights go out...Or stay on, depending on the day and how much fluid I feel I am retaining! Hey, we DID have 2 babies in the period of 12 months. All that non-sexual physical contact leads to some steamy action in the bedroom. And lots of it. I have a 14 month old and a newborn that are living testimonials of that fact!
Stay tuned tomorrow for Day 7 of the K-Y Brand Intimacy Experiment!
