The 10 Second Kiss with Dr. Ellen Kreidman

tree6199: That's true. Sometimes it's so hard to stop being mommy!
cl-drellenk: But that's exactly right, you have to stop being mommy and daddy and become lovers once in awhile. In the beginning, you saw each other as a man and women. Later on, we become so entrenched in the role of mommy and daddy that we forget to be lovers.
tree6199: It's so funny. For the first two years, we couldn't stop having sex!
cl-drellenk: That's why I have a lovers program for parents. One night a week must be date night, just for the two of you. Once every three months you have an over night stay at a hotel. And once a year you take a one week vacation. I know what I am talking about because I have been married for 32 years and have three grown and well-adjusted children. Everything I tell you is for your children's sake.
: Great advice! Sometimes you feel guilty going away without the kids, but I guess you have to forget about them.
cl-drellenk: The magical formula for a relationship filled with passion, pleasure and playfulness is: 10 second kiss every day, 5 second compliment everyday, 20 second hug every day, 30 minute talk everyday. I leave the frequency in the next part of the formula up to the couple, but once in a while there must be 60 minutes of seduction, a two hour fantasy, a three minute quickie and a two minute belly laugh. If you do all these things you will have a chance at a rewarding and fulfilling life. Okay, last question for the night will be from Fai34.
