Why You Should Be Scheduling Sex With Your Husband Monthly

Picture this. Boy meets girl (boy meets boy, boy meets girl then boy, girl meets girl and boy, enter your story here) they fall in love, have kids, or don't, and life gets hectic and they forget to have sex with each other. It's more common than you might think and there are solutions to change that. Putting pressure on your sexual relationship isn't ideal either. That's why we've come up with a solution. All you type A personalities will really love this one.

You schedule your meals, dates, and maybe even your menstruation cycle so why not schedule sex? Having a healthy sexual relationship is key to a happy and healthy relationship. If either partner feels neglected, ignored, or confused, it won't hurt to schedule some hanky-panky time.

If you're asking yourself, "should I schedule sex with my husband?" the answer is YES, and here's why.

Scheduling Sex Is Good For Your Relationship, Duh

This is a no-brainer people! Sex is good for you, your partner, and your relationship. I just want to make it clear that we're talking about consensual sex. There seems to be some confusion with what consent is these days... Not only does sex bond a couple due in part to physical contact, but sex releases hormones like oxytocin that acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain. So scheduling sex means you're scheduling a bit of calmness in your day.

It Makes Something You Both Love A Routine

You brush your teeth, you go to the gym, you attend Church; all part of your daily, weekly, or monthly routine. It comes naturally to you, it might even be second nature. Sex can be part of that routine, too. Setting a time (and place, hehe) for sex can avoid excuses, disappointment, or miscommunication. And if you're miserable at work you have something to look forward to later that evening, or morning. And if you're thinking that's not the most romantic way to go about having sex, you might be wrong. According to sex therapist, Ian Kerner, PhD prioritizing intimacy is prioritizing your relationship, which is actually pretty romantic.

A Schedule Keeps You Consistent

If you're feeling detached, maintaining a schedule means you will actually get to be physical with your husband. Life gets in the way of seeing friends, family, and sometimes our significant others. But scheduling sex can keep the physical portion of a relationship in tact. Again, consent is vital but maintaining a schedule will help keep the love between two people alive during busy times.
