“I’m too tired.”
Me too. Sometimes by the time I get the kids to bed I am ready to collapse from the sheer exhaustion of the day. We can all relate to this feeling. Whether you work in the home or out of the home, have kids or don’t have kids, the fast pace at which we run our lives is physically, emotionally and mentally draining. In our American culture, exhaustion is the number one excuse for not having sex.
Let me ask you a question: Have you ever felt too tired to cook dinner? Have you felt too tired to shower and get ready to go somewhere? Have you ever felt like you were too tired to get up and go to work? You can see where I’m headed with this. There are many things we feel “too tired” to do and yet we force ourselves to do them. Why? Because they are necessary for our well-being. It is no different with sex.
Sex is a necessary and key component to the security of our marriage.
How long does it take you to cook dinner? Let’s say it’s an average of thirty minutes. How long does it take to shower and get ready to go out? Let’s say anywhere from thirty minutes to one hour. How long does it take to have sex? According to a study by Men’s Health the average man climaxes within 5 to 10 minutes of sexual stimulation. A study from iFemale shows the average time for men to achieve orgasm is 2-5 minutes and for a woman it is 20 minutes. Now, unless you’re married to a porn star, most of whom seem to have a gifted knack for longevity, it is safe to assume you can stay awake long enough to participate in a sexual activity with your spouse that will last anywhere from 2 to 20 minutes.
Undeniably after the first minute or so, the tired feeling is replaced by arousal and the anticipation of euphoric trembling.
“I’m too tired” is an over-exhausted, overly used, worn out, too lame excuse and it’s time to lay it to rest forever. ~
