Recession Sex Going Strong

The recession is not putting a damper on most Americans' sex lives.

We'd think that the recession would make people feel more stressed and less ... well ... horny. But that's not so, according to a new study.

Seventy-nine percent of people sexually active and willing to talk about their sex lives said their personal financial situation has NOT affected their frequency of sex, Consumer Reports magazine reports. Five percent are even having sex more often.

An informal poll around the office mainly found the opposite was true. The recession has made us feel anxious and worried about our budgets ... not exactly a turn-on. But one mom says she snuggles more and bonds with her hubby sexually because "it takes my mind off our financial woes ... plus, it's free entertainment!"

Is your sex life affected by the recession? Are you having sex more or less?

This article makes a good point… My man and I are skipping the Valentine’s Day gifts this year and opting for a day in, renting a movie and cooking dinner together. And having our own fun. ;)

My man and I are having more sex lately because we can’t afford to go out as much as we were. Things are SO exspensive! We like to watch movies are tv, cuddle up, and also cook at home together. Have those special moments more often have actually helped us bond more. I feel a lot more closer since we stopped going to bars or parties
