Once you become a Mum the old libido doesn’t visit quite as often. It’s probably something to do with having whiney, clingy kids attached to you all day, and sometimes half the night that makes you want your body all to yourself for a little while.
Men, on the other hand, are up for it all the time.
You’re doing the dishes – oh yeah baby, it’s sexy time.
You’re bending over to pick up the kid’s toys – oh yeah, it’s inappropriate comment time that’s bound to be followed by sexy time.
You’ve been dealing with a sick kid, are totally exhausted and having your first shower in three days – you better believe it’s sexy time.
Actually this video by the Flight of the Conchord’s probably explains it better than I do.
It was the weekend and my then two year old son and four month old daughter were napping at the same time. The rarity of this event somehow stimulated our libidos and sexy time was most definitely on. A trail of clothes ripped off in record time on the way to the bedroom showed how rapidly our passions had ignited.
This is no Shades of Grey, so I’ll spare you all the details, suffice to say it was good. Really good. So good in fact, that my vocalising was a tad louder than intended. But as the climaxal moment approached, our libido was quickly shoved out the window and we collapsed in hysterical laughter when a little voice from across the hallway shouted, “Yay, go Mummy”!
