Will You Take The '7 Days Of Sex' Challenge?

7 days of sex

7 Days of Sex debuts next week on Lifetime

Before you read this post, make sure it’s after the kids’ bedtime, it’s a little PG.

If you could pick a reality show to be on, which would you choose? Amazing Race, Big Brother, Survivor? Maybe something task specific like Master Chef, or Project Runway?

My wife would love to be on What Not To Wear. “How great would it be to throw my whole closet out and shop with other people’s money in New York?” she squeals.

When I pitched to her that we should submit an application for Lifetime‘s new show 7 Days of Sex, however, the enthusiasm disappeared.

How to DIY your own 7 Days of Sex Challenge, after the jump:

Lifetime Networks president and general manager Nancy Dubuc recently made the press rounds promoting the premiere of 7 Days of Sex on April 26.

Dubuc says7 Days of Sex is a reflection of the challenges in our relationships — balancing time, family, work and trying to achieve real intimacy while being honest and true to ourselves.

Each episode of the show will feature two couples who “attempt to make radical fixes to their troubled relationships by asking the frank question: can a diet of daily sex help them recharge their marriage?”

The idea isn’t new, back in 2008 Texas preacher Ed Young made headlines after telling his congregation to participate in this sort of sexperiment.

“Today we’re beginning this sexperiment, seven days of sex,”
he said. “How to move from whining about the economy to whoopee!”

Maybe I can convince her to take up the preachers’ advice and try to do it on our own? Here’s 7 tips to get you started on your own 7 Days of Sex Challenge:


  • Schedule Time Together 1 of 7

    There is nothing wrong with admitting you have busy schedules, and you need to fit things in. Make for time for each other by scheduling a date night, or *wink* yknow.

    Foreplay doesn't have to happen while you're in bed, set things up all day with subtle winks and innuendo.
