Sex: Wake Us When It's Over

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

For every mom who's too tired to have sex, there's apparently a guy who's going to complain about it.


Last week, momlogic published a post called Sleep is the New Sex, in which guest blogger Dani Klein Modisett admitted  she'd rather have a night of sleep than a night of sex. She must've really hit a nerve. We got a ton of comments, mostly from men. Based on the feedback, husbands don't have much sympathy for their sleep-deprived wives:

• "Ladies, you can have a low libido, or a faithful relationship."

• "This epitomizes the RAW DEAL men get in marriage."

• "Thankfully, there are plenty of women willing to step in and satisfy your man while you sleep."

• "Are you naive or what? If your husband is discussing his sex life with a female co-worker, he is on the prowl."

• "Welcome to the end of your marriage."

Yikes. We're freaking tired, okay? Can't guys ever give us a break?

and these are the fathers that are not chasing around the kids and cleaning the house, trying to make dinner, giving baths, and reading the bedtime stories (all after we get home from work!)…..while we are doing these things they are watching football!! thankfully, my husband helps out a lot so we aren’t THAT tired and things get done quicker and we have time for us. but these men need to cut a little slack, and these women need to make more of an effort.

Between this and the most popular story “the secret your man isn’t telling you,” how much more depressing can we get? geesh. MOMlogic? more like MOMletdown.

Listen up ladies, these are the men that cheat and they aren’t worth even trying to keep. I agree with the first two posts completely, these are the husbands that do what they please, don’t help out around the house or with the kids and then expect their wives to be up for a little of the mediocre sex they have to offer. Please! Let them cheat then. At least then you’ll get some good sleep and we all know that’s way better than bad sex with a selfish lover.
And guys? Go start a dadlogic site okay? We don’t really need you here.

If you husband can’t appreciate all that you do and how tired you are and decides to go out and cheat because of it then dont let the door hit him on the way out!

Give him a quick hand job and he’ll be happy.

The problem is, women will find any and every excuse to avoid sex once married. There can be 5 dishes in the sink and suddenly it’s more important to clean those than try to be intimate. Married women are so NOT SEXY because they ignore their husband and their relationship. Married women are just pathetic cry -babies!
