A recent survey involving 800 Australian Mums from ‘North Shore Mums’ revealed the sex lives of parents in sought after suburbs.
There are loads of places Australian Mums and their partners are having sex to reignite the sexual spark in their relationships. Outdoors were a common way to keep the fire going, Cliffton gardens, Lisgar gardens, bush walks in Hornsby and even the Killara Golf Course were all mentioned. Tables were another way to mix things up, picnic tables, the in laws dining room table and even the boardroom table at the old law firm. The most bizarre mention was doing it at Thomas’ Rest Cemetery.
The uptown parents even said that orgies with old women, threesomes, masturbating in the bathroom at work, having affairs and fantasising about ex-partners during sex were all ways to maintain a satisfying sex life.
The survey further re-established a lot of trends typical of the sex lives of parents who have had children.
The top reasons for having less sex were:
- Too tired
- Low Sex Drive
- Don't feel like it
- Lack of opportunity & don't have the time
- Don't feel good about my body.
"If I’m lying down I would rather be sleeping! But in all seriousness, my sex drive is lower, I find it more painful than I did before kids, and we just have far fewer opportunities."
"We have a small window between when the children are in their bed and when they come into ours! Thank goodness for ABC Kids on a Saturday morning..."
"We have much better, more emotionally connected sex, than we did before children. I found after having a my first vaginal birth with no pain relief that I experienced a lot more physical pleasure during sex because the contrast in sensations with birth and sex made sex feel so much better than before. But we have much less sex. Once a week as opposed to every second or third day."
The survey also revealed that children had caught a lot of parents in the act. This usually happened once, then a new strategy would have to be put in place.
"I was giving my husband a blow job, and my daughter walked in and stood there and then asked why is mummy's head down there going up and down (whilst she is doing the movements with her head)... I wanted the ground to swallow me up, I was beyond mortified."
"We stopped, under the covers, and my husband had a conversation with our son, who seemed blissfully unaware. He managed to convince our son to go off and busy himself with something, at which point my husband kept going until he came."
"Age 8, walked into bedroom and immediately said ‘ Something smells fishy”. I nearly lost it... thank god my husband didn’t."
