Couples are too tired, too full, too stressed, too distracted. We get it -- there are a million and one legitimate reasons not to have sex tonight, tomorrow or the day after that.
But there are plenty of couples out there who are doing the deed five, six, seven or more times a week. We recently asked married HuffPost readers who have sex every night barring things like sickness, business trips or other extenuating circumstances, of course how it has improved their lives and relationships.
Below are 13 good reasons to get it on with your spouse on a near daily basis. It provides some much-needed couple time. We are parents to a toddler, so when we lay him down for bed each night, we can then spend the rest of the night expressing how we feel about each other physically. Having sex allows us to be passionate, to show affection and we enjoy pleasing each other.
It leads to more PDA outside of the bedroom. We hold hands a lot, he slaps my butt when I'm working in the kitchen, I nuzzle his neck when he's working on research papers at the desk.
It can be a workout if you do it right. It gets you out of your head for a little while. It's a way to connect without speaking. It brings couples together in a way that other things don't.
What I mean is that it promotes togetherness, snuggling and cuddling, and it's a way to connect without words. You might end up arguing less. And most importantly, we don't fight, argue or bicker! We sit down and talk things out. Staying connected like that helps us communicate better outside of the bedroom. It forces you to get creative.
There is no position or situation either of us has ever denied the other. It's easier to schedule than a formal date night.
Plus, I know my husband enjoys it. I also love to see how my husband gets lost in the moment. Being able to see that level of complete satisfaction on his face is so satisfying to me. It's a guaranteed mood booster. This is all the proof I need that sex is a mood enhancer for him.
And I'd like to think that good mood carries over into other parts of his day. I love knowing that I'm the reason he's smiling at work. If you use it, you won't lose it. And you won't have to worry about how to resume or reconnect.
