I Can't Believe I'm Doing This!!! {KY Intimacy Experiment And GIVEAWAY!}



To all the little kiddies under 18 out there:
This is not a post for you. Please hit the back button, close the page, or anything else that will get you away from this page!

Sincerely,
ME!

OK, so if you know me, you know I like to enter giveaways.Every so often, I win one! This time, I had won a prize at Fun After Dark, Fun Fritz Family's um... adult blog. It was a KY Intimacy Prize Pack filled with all kinds of stuff. Upon finding out that I had a blog of my own, the good people at K-Y Brands contacted me and asked if I'd be interested in doing a series of blog posts based on their "Intimacy Experiment" and, when it was through, give away to TWO lucky readers a prize pack similar to the one they were going to send to me. Well, who am I  to keep my readers from getting a chance to get down and dirty? Right?
OMG! WHAT is in this box?! It's huge for a few K-Y things! Maybe there's a couple of blow up dolls? Air pump? Weird-shaped sex toys that I won't have ANY idea where to put? Could I end up in the E.R. trying to explain this "intimacy experiment" to someone??? (Hubby just suggested that maybe the large box is to be reused for mailing the kids to Grandma's house for a week or two?)

I mean, most of us have children. It doesn't matter what age they are. The younger ones take up all of our time and energy. As they get older, we have more chances for romance with our partner, BUT, we are a little more concerned about the walking in on us part. I mean, if my toddler happens to catch hubby and I having a moment, the mood is kind of killed. But a quick and simple explanation - if any at all - is needed. If my teenage son were to catch us... well, I think he may 1) go blind, 2) have some major psychological issues, and/or 3) need some long therapy sessions in order to think about sex without the scene he walked in on (burned into his brain) causing a major case of impotency!
Oh, O.K. a pretty pink box. Not so scary... Still wonder what's inside. Hope it's nothing too weird. I have a nice, family-focused blog. How could I ever write some posts on things like whips and chains??? I hope that agreeing to this isn't going to blow up in my face! Blow up... ARE there dolls in there? "Hellooooo??? Anybody in there?!"

So, why am I doing this? We need it. We've had some major problems out of the bedroom. This, in turn, has caused the intimacy level of our relationship to become nil. I mean, I can't remember the last time we even hugged or held hands. In order to be on an intimate level with one another, at least in my case, you need to have love and trust - and those two go hand-in-hand. We're slowly working on all of this through talking. One of the things that kept coming up was that, as he took advantage of my trust, I began to close off the doors to sex and even physical affection. We ended up as roommates - not cool!

The K-Y Brands Intimacy Experiment sounds like a great way for us to build up our relationship, once again. It isn't all about sex. (Really, it isn't! I know, I was surprised, too!)
Oh, cool! Lots of nice things in here. A book, a notebook & even a nice pen, some bubble bath and three cute little duckies, some conversation hearts, a few different K-Y products, and a pretty purple ribbon. Maybe I ought to go get that bottle of champagne we've had in the cupboard for three years and put it on ice. Hubby will be home soon!

The book that was included in the package states: "Over the next 10 days, you and your partner are going to explore your relationship, both in and out of the bedroom. Your mission: to reconnect with each other and discover fun, passion, and sizzle of sex through a series of exercises that will feel like anything but work." Um... sounds like exactly what we need, right? This book is really neat. It gives you 10 days worth of steps you can take, as a couple, to strengthen your relationship - in and out of bed. Just flipping through the pages, I've come across 'exercises' that will appeal to both of us. Here are a few of the "day" experiments:
  • Use the notebook & pen to write down everything about your partner that turned you on when you first met.
  • Come up with 10 ways that you could touch your partner in a positive, loving way. (Hugs, kisses, playing footsie, etc.)
  • Create a meal together, using all of the foods that are considered to be aphrodisiacs.
Each of the experiments is open to changes, so you can add or subtract anything that really just doesn't fit in with your relationship. And, one of y favorite parts is that, at the end of each exercise is a list of questions that you can use to start a conversation about what you just did. For instance, one of the questions after the aphrodisiac meal exercise is: "Did you notice any aphrodisiac effects from your meal, either real or imagined?"

In conjunction with the book and all of the stuff in the box, there is a Web site that you can use whether you're taking part in the K-Y Intimacy Experiment, or not. Check out Good In Bed. This is a site that has a ton of eBooksun-giggly this site is. It's written by experts who actually have degrees in things like psychology and medicine. This isn't the typical sleazy porn site that you might end up filling all of your search results should you Google about a sexual technique or problem.

The K-Y Intimacy Experiment is supposed to take place over 10 consecutive days. I can tell you right now that this just isn't feasible for us. We do have children and we do live in a 1-bedroom apartment. We will, however try to get it all wrapped up within a month. I hope I can write up some posts that are both entertaining AND help you understand just how this experiment is helping our relationship!

I think, if it works like it's supposed to, KY Intense is something that EVERY nightstand should hold!

With a toddler and now a preteen in our own tiny one bedroom apartment (and another on the way!), our sex life has (amazingly!) not disappeared, but it has turned into... quickies. We snag opportunities and make sure to finish before anyone could disturb us!

I'd like to think an experiment like this might bring more intimacy into our relationship.

My email is in my profile.

My interest is definitely piqued by the INTENSE offered by K-Y. These sorts of products have always kind of frightened me, but at the same time...

I can't get off with straight sex. Maybe with a lil help I could!

I visited Good in Bed and *love* that they are doing surveys. I actually really like to talk about sex openly, so I love surveys.

Also, if you complete the survey, you can get one of their eBooks for free!

Yep, could definitely use some spicing up in the relationship dept, after having to deal with our twin children for the past 4 years (5 years if you count invitro and pregnancy!)
