Let your kids have the iPad and lock your bedroom door.
You may not realize this, but every time you visit our site you give us a little window into what resonates with you as a busy parent. These days, you’re responding to stories about the big stresses and little joys, the frustrations of the pandemic and the nitty gritty of life with kids. We can see that you’re doing — and feeling — a lot. You’re also, apparently, quite horny. You frequently visit our stories about masturbation and orgasms, how to have more sex and how to be better when you’re having it. Lots of your questions are clearly about the mysteries of conception, but most are just about pleasure and how to get more of it.
For all this, we say thank you. Your horniness is a beacon of hope, your dedication to getting off a daily reminder that no matter how tired, touched out, frustrated, and stretched thin you are, you haven’t given up or shut down. There’s more good stuff to be had, whether it’s a solo quickie during nap time or an epic all nighter with your spouse (hey, it might happen, right?). Each new day brings another opportunity to orgasm and for that we salute you.
In honor of your indefatigable libidos, Romper and Fatherly have teamed up (in the platonic sense) to put together stories about parental pleasure. Yes, we timed this collection to land around Valentine’s Day — don’t let that good wine and cheap chocolate go to waste! — but we are confident you’ll continue to read them long after the love holiday is over. Because every day is a love — and sex — day on Romper and Fatherly.

Relationships, like people, change over time — in circumstance, in ability, in identity, in desire. It can be hard to remember that sex ebbs and flows, especially when you have little kids, but life is long, and, if we’re lucky, we have plenty of time to get it right. To keep it in perspective, we talked to people in long-term relationships about how their sex lives have changed over the years. The good news is that overall, with a bit of effort, they all seem to have gotten better.
