Brittany Gibbons , who previously had issues with her body image and confidence has revealed the marriage saving benefits that she’s gotten ever since she engaged in an experiment with her husband to have sex everyday for a full year non-stop.
“Shortly after having my third child, I remember getting out of the shower, catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror, and wondering, ‘Who let my mom in here?“From that point on, I didn’t let myself be naked.” she explained.
Brittany from that point on never undressed fully, even when she wanted to have sex with her husband, Andy.
“Andy, as expected, was on board,” she said. And for a whole year, save for being parted by travel or the stomach flu, we had sex with each other.”
“I was no longer hyper-aware of the sounds my curvy body was making,” she said. Like the way my thighs clapped together or my tummy smacked his.”
“I’ll admit, my pelvis and thighs welcomed the rest,” she laughed.
“I learned that I am a better wife, a better mother and a better woman when I take the time to be secure in my relationship and selfish about feeling good about myself,” she added. Having regular sex with my husband isn’t making my marriage divorce-proof or immune to infidelity or angst, but it is helping me feel confident enough in my skin to survive it if it does happen.”
