How much sex do parents have? Considering the recent Ragu commercial, you’d think they have a lot. And then there’s the scandalous revelation of all sorts of spouse-swapping happening all around us. According to a recent Trojan® Charged™ Survey, Americans are having sex three times a week. And guess what? The same survey claims that married couples with children at home are having even more fun in bed (or wherever) at 208 sexcapades a year. And I thought Baristaville parents were looking exhausted just from being parents!
I don’t want to start chanting “Liar! Liar! Pants on Fire!” But yeah, I don’t believe it. Or maybe it’s just that I don’t have it. I’ll come right out and admit that I do not have sex 208 times a year. (Sorry, honey.) And I don’t think most of the parents I know are having sex every other day either. (Sorry, friends.) If the survey counts sitting side-by-side while dozing off in front of the television (on low volume to avoid waking the kids), then yeah! Lots of sex! Somehow, I don’t think that’s what the Trojan people were getting at in the survey. And really, you’d think that since Trojan gave out vibrators all over Manhattan, that they’d hope people needed help having more sex.
Now that Bondage and Domination are out in the fresh air thanks to Fifty Shades of Grey, perhaps it’s time to talk about toys that promote stimulation of parental sex life in a more balanced relationship. The recent Montclair Film Festival screening of Hysteria was sold out, and that film told the story of the invention of the vibrator. And the new film, Hope Springs, deals with healthy intimate relationships at any age. So, we’re okay with it, right? Sex toys can be chic and sexy, not icky and scary. I mean, Maggie Gyllenhaal makes anything look hip, no? So can introducing a sex toy be just plain fun? Trojan is betting yes. They’ve been working hard to put their line of vibrators, Trojan Vibrations, into the hands of willing people all around us. Not only have they been giving out 10, 000 vibrators on Manhattan’s streets over the last two days, but they also distributed 4,000 vibrators at the BlogHer conference, also in Manhattan, this past weekend. And guess what? I picked one up for you!
I’m always thinking about what is best for Barista Kids readers, and I thought many of you might appreciate a chance to find out what the Buzz has been about. One (very) lucky Barista Kids reader will be sent a Tri·Phoria® Intimate Massager, courtesy of Trojan. This particular massager has several options for speeds and different tips, so it will be easy (and hopefully fun) to find out what works best for you. It even comes with a battery, so no excuses. And if you find that using a vibrating toy for sexual play is not for you, it works well as a neck massager, too.
Who’s in? Parents deserve a healthy sex life, too! If you haven’t tried introducing a toy to your intimate relations, now is the time. And, if you’re already familiar with toys, enter our giveaway to supplement your collection. All it takes is a comment telling Baristakids why you think it’s important to have a healthy sex life as a parent. And you know it is.
