The Intrusive Mother and the Harm She Does To Your Sex Life/Relationship?

( The intrusive mother does more harm to your relationship than you know)


Her timing is impeccable.

Just when you are starting to get intimate with your partner your cell goes off…

“Hold on sweetie; I’ve got to get this. It’s mom calling!”

Good lord, the invasion of Iraq didn’t take this much planning.

Your oldest is having a play date, SCORE!
The baby down for a nap, SCORE!
Your libido is somehow retrieved from the south pole……SCORE! SCORE! SCORE!

What could ruin it?

A private moment stolen with your husband/partner, and just as you were starting to, you know, get that lovin’ feelin’, your cell goes off, and it’s YOUR MOTHER!

As your husband rolls over, groaning in exasperation, and clicks on the remote control, your mother intones into the phone that your sister has just gotten a DWI……..AGAIN!

Or something, or someone, has upset her — a family crisis no doubt and she needs your attention, your listening ear.

With your hand over the phone, you turn to your husband and whisper- “she really needs to talk. I’m sorry.”

And just like that your sex life, or what passes for one, has just been put on life support by dear old mom.

“SCORE” is replaced with “EPIC FAIL”!

Even IF you could start-up again time-wise, nothing puts the kibosh on your libido like a convo with mom.

Yep- your libido just went into hiding again and has no plans to return.

Let’s take a look at what just happened here-

By answering mom’s call and interrupting your intimate session with your partner, you chose mom over your partner.

Did you see that? It might not have even consciously registered.
