Two Kids = No Sex?

Last week, I read an article called "The New Celibacy: Are Generation X parents giving up on sex?" It shook many of my mom friends to the core.

Georgia Payne: Does having kids mean giving up on sex?

I read a Babble article called "The New Celibacy: Are Generation X parents giving up on sex?" The author says she and her husband have sex almost daily, but she's embarrassed to tell her friends this because so many of them have STOPPED having sex.

Most moms I know, especially those with toddlers and newborns, say kids slow down their lust lives, there's no doubt about it. These little ones suck every last drop of energy we've got, and the last thing on our minds is sex. Even if we are still very into our husbands, we just can't muster up the energy to hook up after a long day of work, kids, and life.

But the author of this article says you have to make time for sex, or you'll end up in counseling or divorce court.

Come clean, moms: How often do you do it?

(Hessie, a mom of two, confesses she's never in the mood anymore. Give her advice in the momlogic community.)

After our second child our sex life disappeared. I worked nights and developed E/D high blood pressure and depression and take meds. The blue pill didn’t work for the E/D. We became involved with our kids so sex wasn’t an issue. In our 60’s and almost 30 years without sex. We’ve had to live at what nature threw at us.
