Seven Day Sex Challenge

I can't recall if I saw it as a thread here (though I know there was a US tv series with the same name recently met a couple who said they'd got their sex life kicked off again using the Seven Day Sex Challenge. No need to elaborate on what it is other than to say that their interpretation was to do something different each night for a week. Just finished ours and needed to share. Here's what we did. Now, anyone else up to the challenge and want to share their stories. Or go for the 30 day challenge? ;)

Sunday: Warm up. Good old fashioned loving sex. Just so we didn't become too mechanical about it all!

Monday: Sexy underwear. Wear them all day and get ready for the evening. Her favourite for me: http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=22957

Tuesday: Toy night: vibrators, rings and things. Then, later on extenders including my favourite, and hers http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=26872

Wednesday: Film night. Some quality loving porn for an entree

Thursday: Boot night. I love OH in thigh boots, she loves me in cowboy boots. Enough said

Friday: Triple Whammy: going for it thee times in a row, or more (sorry, OH, three times and I was done)

Saturday: Anything and everything. Just let ourselves go.

And so it's back to sunday....

Sounds great. I'd need a couple of days rest though!

I like the sound of this challenge. Might have to give it a try x

Very exciting interesting 7 day sex challenge , worth a try for sure . *off to grab OH*

Would love to try this but it's hard enough to fit in a couple of times a week let alone 7! Maybe when we retire.....

Should come clean and say the reason we gave it a go was because we were too busy finding other things to do, real or imaginary!

I guess you're, young(say 20's) and without kids! if I'm right enjoy it whilst you can.

Nobody to enjoy this challenge with. I should make a 7 day masturbation challenge...

I'm going to say that the main point of this challenge was more than likely orginally given to a couple that have a family and often give far more excuses not to than reasons to do it.

I saw something similar on a show Tracey Cox took part in where she set a couple in their late 30's - 40's with three children a similar challenge. They gave every reason that you would probably give, no time, too tired, work, housework, children being awake etc etc.

The whole point was to show that everything else should not be a priority over being intimate with your partner. Each day didn't have to include full love making sessions. Some days were to give one of the them oral or hand relief or a quickie. But each day had to include something of a sexual nature shared by both of them together.

By the end of the week they completely agreed that they had been using far too many excuses. And whilst everyday might be a bit too hard to maintain in the future that a couple days a week was definitely doable and something they would make sure happened from then on as they found that it made them feel so much closer to each other again. Even if one day was simply spending 5 full minutes kissing, it was enough to get the spark back.

I love the idea, in theory I cannot see how we could put it into action in our lives. Yes sometimes excuses are used but also sometimes they really aren't excuses. When you add work and kids into the relationship sometimes somethings got to give and sadly it usually is the sexual relations.

You are correct, the philosphy behind the challenge is part of rekindling a relationship that has drifted over time.

I couldn't do seven days in a row. We are too rough and I get sore lol .

Maybe I'm getting old every other to every three nights is good but sometimes I can do a lot more depends, I think lack of sleep really dont help.

I think the 7 night thing would be great for couples missing that closeness though.

Hmm. I'm 66 and live an hour's drive frim my (younger) G/F who has a late teenage daughter and a stroppy 8 year old son. Chance and capability would be a fine thing.

We were like this on holidays :) I think we actually managed 10 days until I got sick... :( would try the 30 day lol.. Fun times x
