How to Have Good Sex: 5 Benefits of Afternoon Delight


It might’ve been a week ago, but I suspect it’s longer. It’s definitely happened since Valentine’s Day. I think.

  • Blame it on the bout of spring allergies with their attendant mucous.
  • Blame it on the belly fat. (Who knew a chocolate Easter bunny could be so fattening?).
  • Blame it on our two indefatigably cock-blocking children, who will soon be out of school for THREE MONTHS!
  • Blame it on fucking Rio (yes, that reference dates me).

Bottom line, Henry and I are not doing the Horizontal Mambo, which is usually smokin’ hot! 

You’ll be relieved (or indifferent) to know that measures have been taken.

Next Sunday, at exactly oh-eleven hundred hours until fifteen hundred hours by the yard-arm, our children will be OUT OF THE HOUSE.

That’s right. We’re not having a Date Night Out. Henry and I are having a Date Day In!

Because the last time we had sex on a date night out was in our SUV on the roof of the parking structure at The Grove; an over-priced mall off Fairfax and Wilshire.

It was Henry, me and three other cars parked up there at 10 p.m. on a Sunday night and I spent most of our  interlude craning my neck around to see if anyone was watching.

And let me tell you. No one was watching. I know because I was too busy watching them. Even though they didn’t exist. Which makes for highly un-sexy sex.

Five Benefits to a Date Day In:

1.  You’re not too tired for foreplay, which may or may not include licking the woman’s sexy armpit.

2. You can actually see your partner as you make love in broad daylight. (Or, you can use black out curtains so you don’t have to see each other. Dealer’s choice.)

3. You can yell as loud as you want and no one will hear, except maybe the neighbors who will think you’re simply doing flying yoga. Which is actually insulting since you look like two sex machines.

4.  You can nap after your tryst without the stick-shift cranking your neck.

5.  Finally. And most importantly. The food and wine are free.

Hot Food!
(The gourmand’s delight!)

Also, hopefully your sitter takes the kids to the race track, where they’ll bet on Hibiscus Flower, who carries a three-point handicap or whatever it is.

Said-horse will come from behind,  break away from the pack and win! Allowing your children to pay for your Date Day In.

  1. One observation, you seem awfully obsessed with dating yourself. You know, just because you know the title of the movie “Blame it on Rio” does not mean you did not see it for the first time last week on a DVD.

    I like your reference to the parking garage. It reminded me of a date with my then girlfriend now wife, way back when, parked next to Coit Tower in San Francisco. Oh, that just reminded me of being on the Presidio with a date when a very polite MP asked us to move along. Thanks for the reminiscing, but I must admit I do like your reasoning.

    1. Hah! Doug I will never be able to drive by the Coit Tower without thinking of you. (Interesting that the word coitus is so similar.hmmm)
