So I’m slow on TV show watching most of the time.  For example, today at lunch I just watched the episode of How I Met Your Mother from a couple weeks ago and almost lost it with the 50 reasons to have sex list.  The list is below.  My question to you is – how many of these reasons have YOU used?



50 reasons to have sex

50 reasons to have sex


The reasons I’ve used:

1. Because you can’t get to sleep

2. Make up sex

3. Break up sex

4. Your friend told you about a new position

5. Revenge

6. Rebound

8. Nothing good on TV

9. Because you’re in a hotel

10. Curiosity

11. It’s raining

17. You’re already at their place and don’t want to have to move your car 

18. Show off new lingerie

20. Your chance to do it in a specific location (my example: Central Park among others)

21. To prove you’re not in a rut

22. Stress relief

23. Just shaved legs (or waxed)

29. To avoid cleaning, studying, or doing work of any kind

30. She wants to

31. It’s cold outside

32. Cheer someone up

33. Keeping up with the neighbors (or your roommate)

34. Your roommate is out of town and you can do it on the couch

36. Practice

37. They have air conditioning (or heat) and you don’t

42. Breaking in a new apartment

43. Because he said he loves you and you aren’t ready to say it back yet

44. Wingman diving on the friend grenade

48. To reinforce good behavior

49. To change the subject

50. Love


Plus – I have a couple OTHER reasons that didn’t make the HIMYM list:

51. Because somebody said you wouldn’t

52. You said you would while kidding around and they took you way seriously and it was easier to just do it than explain you were kidding

53. To get the other person to stop talking (could possibly count as ‘change the subject’)


… So that’s about it that I can think of.  What I want to know now is – which reasons have you used? Do YOU have any reasons that didn’t make the list?  Let’s hear about them!
