Brittany Gibbons , who previously had issues with her body image and confidence has revealed the marriage saving benefits that she's gotten ever since she engaged in an experiment with her husband to have sex everyday for a full year non-stop.
“Shortly after having my third child, I remember getting out of the shower, catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror, and wondering, ‘Who let my mom in here?Brittany from that point on never undressed fully, even when she wanted to have sex with her husband, Andy.“From that point on, I didn’t let myself be naked.” she explained.
But when she got worried that her husband Andy wouldn’t be able to remember what her body looked like, a friend told her when she was faced with such a problem too she decided to have sex everyday for a full year.
Brittany decided to do the same, in the hope it’d make her confront her body issues and self confidence.
“Andy, as expected, was on board,” she said. And for a whole year, save for being parted by travel or the stomach flu, we had sex with each other.”
At first the sex adventure seemed like a chore, but as time wore on Brittany started getting used to it, looked forward to having sex and started feeling free to walk around naked at home.
“I was no longer hyper-aware of the sounds my curvy body was making,” she said. Like the way my thighs clapped together or my tummy smacked his.”
This happened three years ago, but Brittany says things are going on well now and that even though they might not be hooking up every night, their marriage is as strong as ever.
“I’ll admit, my pelvis and thighs welcomed the rest,” she laughed.
The pair make time for sex because it’s an important part of their marriage and are more romantic and caring towards each other.
“I learned that I am a better wife, a better mother and a better woman when I take the time to be secure in my relationship and selfish about feeling good about myself,” she added. Having regular sex with my husband isn’t making my marriage divorce-proof or immune to infidelity or angst, but it is helping me feel confident enough in my skin to survive it if it does happen.”Source: TheSunUK
