Obviously, you do not need an excuse to jump on the bed and get to work-with your partner or alone. But sometimes life gets busy and just pushing your pleasure more and more into the background. It happens. But when you’re really in the mood or are just ready to get out of the sexual routine, look no further than these silly reasons (but also a kind of self) for sex. You’re welcome.
1. You skipped the gym, so you should probably find a way to burn some calories.
Hey, you might not burn as many calories as you would on the treadmill, but you’ll definitely get your heart rate up. Okay, so sex doesn’t actually count as a workout, but it’s better than nothing—and often a lot more fun than logging miles.
2. Your neighbors had a loud party last weekend, and it’s time for payback.
It’s only right to even the score, and planning a party is so much work. Some extra-loud sex is a far easier alternative.
3. You’re favorite primetime show is a repeat tonight.
Translation: You can have amazing sex without secretly wondering what you might be missing on Scandal.
4. You woke up on time this morning, and that deserves a celebration.
When your alarm went off, you weren’t having it, but you got out of bed anyway. Good for you! Now hop right back in there as a reward.
5. It’s sooo dreary outside.
You did have plans to go see that play tonight…but now it’s pouring. Do you really want to leave the house? No, you don’t. Sex will keep you inside and keep you warm—all the reason you need.
6. You need a way to kill time while dinner is in the oven/while waiting for the delivery guy.
You’re both starving, and you don’t want to nosh on too many snacks and ruin your appetite. You know what won’t ruin your appetite? Sex.
7. You feel a cold coming on.
Okay, fine, you sneezed once, but studies show sex may boost your immune system. Better safe than sorry!
8. Your new body wash has your skin feeling extra soft, and SOMEONE needs to feel it.
You can’t be the only one who gets to experience this skin miracle. That would be a crime.
9. You recently did laundry, so your favorite sexy lingerie is back in commission.
You forgot that set even existed, so you’d better show it off right away. Yep, you look amazing in this.
10. Or more likely, you’re way overdue to do laundry, so you’ll be sleeping naked tonight anyway.
Look at it this way: You’re already halfway there.
11. You remembered that Magic Mike XXL is happening, and the ensuing mental images got you a little too frisky.
XXL? What is that even going to mean? Consider yourself hot, bothered, and officially in the mood.
12. You’re having a good boob day, and you need someone to appreciate them.
More than you appreciated them this morning in front of the mirror as you marveled about awesome they looked.
13. You shaved your legs.
Now that the weather is turning, you just cannot guarantee this is going to happen as often as it used to. Better make the most of it.
14. You feel PMS coming on.
Time to get as busy as possible before the floodgates open. Not that you can’t have sex on your period—but still, it’s a good excuse.
15. Um, orgasms. Do you need another reason?
