6 Tips on How to Have Good Sex After You've Had Kids

Is there sex after kids? The answer is yes. Sex still happens, but let’s face it: It rarely "just happens." So although the before-kids-spontaneity may become a thing of the past, you still can have a sex life...if you try. Like everything else these days, it just takes work and creativity. Here’s some down and dirty inspiration from mothers-about-town (who shall remain anonymous) on how to have good sex once kids and the minutia of the daily grind have taken over:

“We find that a great window for sex is when my teen gets in the shower at night. Yup, your kid’s long hot shower can translate into your hot quickie.”

“My husband and I recently wandered away from a large outdoor family party to take a walk into the woods. I hiked up my maxi dress and we had sex on a foot bridge! My kid was playing with cousins and didn’t even notice we had disappeared.”

“My husband loves it when I dress up so I’ve been putting on heels and a skirt for the dinnertime routine. Once the kids are in bed there’s no stopping us…!”

“I let my school-age kids invite some friends over for a movie night. Once they’re in front of the TV with ample snacks, my husband and I disappear into the bedroom with some wine…”

“We frequently take showers together to ‘conserve water’.”

“I have two words for you: Sleepaway camp!”

Do you have any tips to share? How are you and your partner keeping things going in the bedroom now that little ones rule the roost?
