11 Great Reasons to Spend Your Next Day Off in Bed with Your Partner
Is there any feeling in the world that’s quite as good as the one you get when you wake up in the morning and remember you’ve got the entire day off? If there is, it’s got to be the way you feel after starting your day with a round of hot, passionate, dirty sex with your lover. The two together are just like chocolate and peanut butter – two impossibly awesome things that are even better when you combine them.
So when was the last time you and your partner cleared your schedules and treated yourselves (and each other) to an all-day sex-a-thon? If it’s been a while, it’s time to fix that. If it’s still something you do once in a while, it’s time to think about making it a regular thing. The following are just a few ways doing so can make you happier, your relationship stronger, and your life in general better.
- It’s an awesome way to bond with your partner.
When it comes to essential ways to get closer to your partner and stay that way, sex absolutely tops the list. The more great quality sex you have, the better it is for your relationship. Occasionally make sex your only priority on a day you both have free. It’s a great way to show your partner that you’re still over-the-moon attracted to them even after years together. Everyone likes to know the person they love most in the world still burns for them inside and your partner is no different.
- It’s good for your health in more ways than one.
In case you actually had any doubts, sex is seriously good for you. To begin with, it’s great exercise and will definitely help you stay fit if you have enough of it. It’s good for your immune system and for keeping stress levels in check as well. There’s even evidence out there that having sex can help you get over illnesses faster or avoid getting sick in the first place. Definitely something to consider the next time you want to spend a day off doing something positive for your health, right?
- You’ll have time for as many orgasms as you can handle.
Orgasms are a lot like really good chocolates. You don’t necessarily need them, but they’re really much too good to miss out on. They’re definitely amazing little bright spots that can’t help but remind you how good life can be when you add the occasional indulgence to the mix. When there’s nothing on your agenda for the day but sex, you’ve got all the time in the world to have as many orgasms as you like. Why not see how many you can give each other or see if you can check something naughty off of your orgasm bucket list (e.g. simultaneous orgasms or multiple orgasms)?
- It’s one of the best ways on earth to unwind.
Sex is one of the best, most effective stress reducers on the planet, but it’s far from the first thing we think to do when we’re feeling more stressed out than usual. Isn’t it high time you changed that? Taking a day to properly decompress and focus on something other than whatever it is that’s weighing you down is one of the best decisions you could make if you’ve been under a lot of stress lately. Making that “something” your one of a kind relationship with your partner is the perfect way to reacquaint yourself with what really matters most in life. Try it! You might be surprised at how much less monumental that ever-present office stress actually seems come Monday.
- It’s a one-way ticket out of a sexual rut.
Sexual ruts are something that happen to even the happiest couples from time to time. Not only does the monotony of daily life tend to get in the way of having the kind of sex we really want to be having, but it’s common for couples to simply stick to what they know works for both of them. A steamy, sexy day spent in bed with your partner is the perfect opportunity to experiment a little bit. Share a couple of your pet fantasies with your partner and consider choosing a couple to act out. Try a few new positions. Challenge yourselves to see how many different ways you can please each other. You’ve literally got all day to indulge yourselves (and each other).
- It’s a great way to pass the time.
There’s a reason we all love long, lazy days with nothing in particular that needs to be done. You literally get to pass your time however you’d like. If that means binge-watching an entire season or two of your favorite show, then so be it! There comes a time in every person’s life when even a self-indulgent Netflix binge doesn’t sound as fun as it normally does though. Sure, you could catch up on your laundry or your housework instead, but wouldn’t a day filled with one long, lazy love session after another be so much better? Give it some serious consideration the next time your original plans for the weekend wind up cancelled on account of bad weather.
- You’ll start sleeping more soundly.
Have you ever noticed how much better the quality of your sleep is after an unusually active, productive day? Having sex all day may seem a little naughtier and more fun than spending an entire day at the gym, but it will definitely have the same effect – a great night’s sleep that leaves you feeling refreshed and revived in the morning. There’s no need to wait until bedtime to squeeze in a quick 40 winks though. Really great sex has a way of making you want to doze off immediately afterward, so feel free to cuddle up close to your partner and enjoy a nap or two in between love sessions.
- You’ll have time to experiment a little.
If you and your partner are already in the habit of devoting entire days to excellent lovemaking, consider making your next all-day marathon an extra-dirty “try anything” day. Start getting excited about it beforehand by making a to-do list you’ll actually be excited about chipping away at. Try acting out a steamy scene from a sexy movie you both saw recently and enjoyed (or even from actual porn, if you prefer). Buy a new sex toy (or two, or three) and go wild putting it through its paces. Try a new scented, flavored lube or incorporate erotic massage into your lovemaking. Then incorporate what works into your regular sexual repertoire to keep things fresh.
- That persistent crabby feeling will become a thing of the past.
Even if you’re a naturally happy person, life still has a way of getting you down from time to time. Deadlines loom. Family problems and work stresses start to pile up and take their toll. Sometimes you can’t help but feel a little blue, crabby, or discouraged. An all-day sex-a-thon is just what you need to bounce back with a vengeance for lots of reasons. Not only does sex bring you closer to your partner while enjoying a “treat yourself” day you probably really need, but it floods your body with endorphins. It’s hard to feel grouchy about much of anything with a body full of feel-good hormones and a mind full of steamy memories.
- You’ll feel just like a teenager again.
There are plenty of things no one misses about being a teenager, like the zits and the lack of confidence so many people suffered from when they were young. Most would positively leap at the chance to feel as passionate, energetic, and optimistic as they did way back when though. You might be surprised at how great a job having sex all day does when it comes to recapturing those old feelings. Remember when the two of you couldn’t keep your hands off of each other and when being alive in general just felt really, truly good? Prepare to experience that all over again.
- You totally deserve it.
People spend so much time and energy trying to cram as much as possible into a mere 24 hours every day and it’s unlikely you’re any different. You work hard at your job most days of the week. Then you immediately focus on taking care of your kids, maintaining your home, and keeping up with your social life once you’re back at home base. In other words, you do so much for other people and it’s high time you showed yourself some of that same consideration. Sex is a way to decompress and be good to yourself that’s also good for your relationship and the general equilibrium of your life. So what are you waiting for? Explore the possibilities at your earliest convenience. You won’t be sorry.
