100 days of sex

All done in the name of the science:

Denver Post lifestyle reporter Doug Brown and his wife, Annie, were featured on NBC's "Today Show" this morning discussing a book about their sex lives.

Doug Brown wrote the book after Annie suggested that they have sex every day for 100 days. She said that after 14 years together, their sex life had become stale.

"Just Do It: How One Couple Turned Off the TV and Turned on their Sex Lives for 101 Days (No Excuses!)," details the journey.

"Immediately, I had second thoughts," Annie Brown told interviewer Ann Currie in this morning's interview.

"When I would tell my girlfriends about it, immediately, their mouths would drop open and they'd ask, 'Are you crazy?' "

"You couldn't do this for the rest of your life. ... It was exhausting," said Doug Brown.

But he recommends couples push themselves at least once a week, regardless of fatigue.

Annie Brown said there were lasting benefits after the experiment was over.

I'd read an article on this too.

One of the interesting dynamics in my relationship has been that the quality of my sex life and the quality of my marriage don't correlate. It's the exact opposite of what you'd expect. When we're not connecting well in the day to day, we connect well (and more frequently) in bed.

That's very interesting. I bet that many people are so busy they push 'couple time' to the back of the burner. Not good for their marriage and not good for their own mental and physical health.

My wife used to be the most sexual woman I knew and then one day she stopped.

We once had a pair of birds -- the aptly-named cockatiels -- who were carrying out the same experiment.... noisily.

Everyone needs a place they can communicate.


If you don't make time for it you find yourself in more trouble.


And now I remember why I don't have birds. ;)
