Is sex worth the effort?

I was driving to work listening to the car radio – Brisbane 97.3FM – and they had this snippet on….

“Check out what women used to be told in the dark old past about how to be a proper wife in this excerpt from a 1960's Home Economics textbook.

Once you have both retired to the bedroom prepare yourself for bed as promptly as possible. Whilst feminine hygiene is of the utmost importance your tired husband does not want to queue for the bathroom as he would have to do for his train. But remember to look your best when going to bed. Try to achieve a look that is welcoming without being obvious. If you need to apply face-cream or hair-rollers wait until he is asleep as this can be shocking to a man last thing at night.

When it comes to the possibility of intimate relations with your husband it is important to remember your marriage vows and in particular your commitment to obey him. If he feels that he needs to sleep immediately then so be it. In all things be lead by your husband's wishes, do not pressure him in any way to stimulate intimacy. Should your husband suggest congress then accede humbly all the while being mindful that a man's satisfaction is more important than a woman's. When he reaches his moment of fulfillment a small moan from yourself is encouraging to him and quite sufficient to indicate any enjoyment that you may have had. Should your husband suggest any of the more unusual practices, be obedient and uncomplaining but register any reluctance by remaining silent.

It is likely that your husband will then fall promptly asleep so adjust your clothing, freshen up and apply your night time face and hair care products. You may then set the alarm so that you can arise shortly before him in the morning. This will enable you to have his morning cup of tea ready when he awakes.”

Yep. I’m sure we all do this… I like the “small moan from yourself is encouraging to him and quite sufficient to indicate any enjoyment that you may have had.” Hmmmm…all that hard work doesn’t seem worth it. Probably this is why in some of those old TV shoes the married couples always had twin beds…in fact, I think I’d insist on it if these rules applied.
