Everyone loves to joke that once you have kids, sex is virtually nonexistent. You're either wiping someone's butt, fixing someone's PB&J, or simply too exhausted to get it on. But for some parents, especially those with older children, it's keeping kids from walking in during sex that makes it so difficult. Not only does it totally kill the mood to have a 4-yer-old barge in asking for a cup of juice, but how awkward is it to then explain your lovemaking as a very aggressive hug? If you knowhow to avoid getting caught during sex by your kids, you can increase your chances of intimacy and make sex even more enjoyable.
Because children? They have no boundaries. It doesn't matter how old they are, or how much you tell them mommy needs her privacy, they're bound to interrupt at some point. How many times have you tried to pee with an audience? Kids are all up in your space at any given moment, but that doesn't mean you have to give up one of your favorite activities. For starters, you can always pick a good hiding spot to get down and dirty. When the kids are around, it can pay to get creative about the location, so give up your hatred of the great outdoors. And once you have a good spot, give one of these seven tips a whirl and see if it helps keep your kids out of your business for at least long enough to enjoy. (And if that doesn't work, it's time to call grandma, seriously. You need alone time with your partner.)
