Is Sex on Demand Ruling Your Life? - Trying to Conceive

Unless you've dabbled in prostitution, the concept of sex on demand is probably foreign to you. What exactly is sex on demand? It's sex with a sole purpose -- making a baby.

If you haven't started trying to conceive you probably have no idea what we're talking about. But, if you are trying to get pregnant and it's taking a little longer than you thought, you know exactly what we mean when we say sex on demand.

Under normal circumstances, there is a dance of seduction that happens between most couples, which may include back massages, candlelit dinners or long intimate conversations. For most women, sexual intercourse is the big dip at the end of the tango and is the ultimate culmination of both a physical and an emotional connection with her husband.

Sex on demand
is a whole new ballgame. Your sweet flirty self has been replaced with a woman who yells, "It's time" as a signal to begin amorous relations when she is ovulating. All of a sudden, the emotional connection that was so crucial in the past is completely disregarded. Unfortunately, ovulation sex is all about the physical result. As your husband is cozying up, you may be so bold as to tell him to skip the previews and get right to the main attraction.
