What You Need To Know About The 30-Day Sex Challenge

And why you should try it.

First things first: lest you think that the 30-day sex challenge is something that involves promiscuous behaviour, you ought to know that that couldn’t be further from the truth. Because while it’s about getting it on every single day of the month, it was created to help couples get out of a sexual rut. You know, the thing that develops when you’ve been with your partner a while and boning has just become, well, lacklustre?

Not that there’s anything wrong with taking part in the challenge with multiple people if you’re single, of course. But if sex with your boyfriend has been anything but exciting, you might want to give it a go. It’ll probably be hard AF to enforce in the beginning—especially when you’ve got chores and other s**t to attend to after a long at work—but who knows what you’ll find at the end of the rainbow?

Meg Conley, the woman who came up with the challenge in an attempt to reconnect with her husband, shared that even though it took a lot of work at first to stick to, the both of them ended up remembering how much fun getting down and dirty can be, and how important it is to make time for each other.

Many others have since written about their own experience with the challenge and a couple even shared a list of rules they adhered to that seemed to work well for them. The list includes performing a different kinky task every day for the 30 days and adding an extra day if a day is missed. Also, the challenge can be put on hold if periods, holidays and business travel get in the way.

Much as getting it on for 30 days straight may sound a bit daunting, practice also makes perfect, so go ahead and hump away for one month straight. You may not only discover a new level of attraction for your partner, but also feel closer to him than before. Plus, he’ll probably find it super hot that you initiated this. Brownie pointsss.
