Who doesn’t love sex?
Apparently, everybody does, but still, nobody can do it every day for a year, at least not with the same partner… because then the spark vanishes.
However, there’s this woman who actually had sex every day for an entire year. Back in 2013, Brittany Gibbons, the owner of Fat Girl Walking, opened up about her sex life and she told Good Housekeeping,
“Shortly after having my third child, I remember getting out of the shower, catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror, and wondering, ‘Who let my mom in here?’ From that point on, I didn’t let myself be naked. I kept the lights off during sex, hid my stomach and boobs inside a camisole, and I waited for my husband to leave the bedroom before barreling from the shower to my closet to get dressed.”
Here she describes briefly the experiment she did.
“Sex begat more sex, and those connected, loved up feelings began to creep outside of the bedroom — or in our case, the laundry room, the closet and our garage — and into our everyday lives. We were more romantic with each other, touching arms as we passed, kissing longer before work and not just the cold familiar peck. Our relationship was stronger and better when our intimacy was flourishing.”
While sharing her experience with The Huffington Post, she said.
“I needed to explain to him that him seeing me that way is great, but unless I saw it too, it didn’t count. I mean, at least if he expected me to be an active participant and not just a hole laying on the mattress. It took a lot of talking to make him realize that me not feeling sexy was not an attack on him, and him being hurt about it only made me feel worse. I wanted to enjoy sex, too. And the key for me being able to enjoy it is feeling confident and gorgeous, and that was a me journey, not a him journey, though having a cheerleader on the sidelines was a plus.”
As expected, Twitter had something to say as well.
Kat didn’t seem happy with this experiment.
@brittanyherself I’d rather commit myself to a North Korean work camp.

She got an amazing response, though.
@mamakatslosinit You are brave. No way could I handle the necklines on those uniforms.

However, one person was a little confused.

She cleared them though.
