Once you’ve committed to cosleeping, there’s no going back. And while parents who willingly choose to snuggle with their kids regularly have (probably) accepted the lifestyle that comes with it, there is always that sobering realization: How the hell are we going to have sex with the kids in our bed?
Sure, those beds have all the space, but none of the action. Meaning cosleeping parents have to get creative when it comes to keeping the spark alive.
The good news is, it’s doable, pun completely intended, and you don’t have to get a babysitter when the mood strikes. Here are 10 places in your house to have sex while your kids “starfish” in the middle of your bed.
Even if we co-sleepers have to go through hoops to indulge in some TLC with our spouses, waking up to hugs and kisses from little faces makes it all worth it. Okay, maybe wake-ups are more like feet in our ribs and abrupt somersaults on the bed. But you know, still sweet.
