Some Thoughts on Kissing

As noted here over time, my husband and I are putting more effort into our sex life now that our kids are relatively self-sufficient and let us sleep a lot more than they used to. (Well, now we're up worrying about where they are when they miss their curfews, but at least we can sleep in on weekends to make up for it!) We're doing a pretty good job of giving each other extra attention in the bedroom and with trying to ramp up the romance a bit during the day, but a thing we still need to work on, I think, is kissing.

Why you Need to Talk About Sex

Sex, though it appears everywhere from magazine covers to movies, is a taboo topic in our society for many reasons. One of these is the perception that talking about sex makes you too sexual (which is really not a thing, by the way).

Every year, I have this picture of holiday romance in my head and every year, I’m jolted back to reality as all of my rom-com fantasies are taken down a notch.
