Thirty-day challenges have been floating around the internet for years, with many focused on helping people get tighter abs and stronger arms. Of course, the concept can be applied to anything, and one couple has opted to challenge themselves to 30 days of sex, which they detailed in a Reddit post.
The concept is pretty simple: The couple plans to have sex at least once a day for 30 days. Every day has a set activity, but each person can modify or replace the activity for two of the days before the challenge starts. Each partner also gets two veto days where they can skip the activity and just have sex. Periods, holidays, and business trips will be treated as a “pause” on the challenge if need-be.
“The goal is to push your comfort zone and try something new,” Redditor TryAnything3Times explains. “If a partner is uncomfortable with a challenge and they no longer have an edit or veto, they can borrow a partner’s veto. In this case, the partner who gives up a veto gets to pick the new activity.”
The challenge starts pretty simply, with having sex at a time other than before bed, and works up to more complicated things like trying to have five orgasms or sex five times in one day.
The 30 Ab Challenge, the 30 Day Beach Body Challenge, the 30 Day Fitness Challenge – all designed to help you reach a goal by the end of the month. These challenges, in combination with a Huffington Post article about sex and married couples, motivated me to try my own 30 Day Challenge: the 30 Day Sex Challenge. For 30 days straight, for one entire month, I will have sex with my husband every single day. No rest days. No injury days. No days off.
Yep, we will have sex every day, even on days when I want to kill him. Even on days when I haven’t slept more than four hours. Even on days when I feel absolutely disgusting. Even on days when the kids are sick. Because I never back down from a challenge. So, without further ado, I give you, that time my husband and I had sex every day for a month….. The Challenge: Me: “I want you to have sex with me every day for a month. Like, every day, we have to have sex at least once. And we can’t cheat. And we can’t make up days by doing it twice on weekends. It’s for work. So whatcha say?” Husband: “It’s for work?” Me: “Yah… I am gonna write about it.” Husband: “So everyone can read about it?” Me: “Yeah basically.” Pause. Husband: “Yeah, okay. Do you want to start now?” Challenge accepted. And so it began, on a Sunday night….
