I’ve had a few comments about taking the snuggle challenge and the increased desire for sex. Some of my readers have said that every time they snuggle, they want to have sex. It can be disappointing to the spouse who wants to be intimate, as well as difficult for the spouse that was ready to go to sleep. So, how do handle the snuggle challenge if you are experiencing this problem?
1. Have sex and then snuggle
2. Snuggle while fully clothed at some other part during the day
3. Expect that snuggling will lead to sex and embrace it
4. Go to bed earlier and make time for both snuggling and sex
These are my suggestions. What would you suggest if this is a problem in your marriage?
I’ll give you a little hint- avoiding snuggling to avoid sex is probably not a good solution!
