A few weeks ago, Sweet Husband heard a report about the book, "Just Do It: How One Couple Turned Off the TV and Turned On Their Sex Lives for 101 Days (No Excuses!)". The premise? The author and his wife made a pact to have sex every day for 101 days, then wrote a book about it.
I haven't read the book yet, but judging from the fact that I'm 20th on my library's hold list (and they just ordered an extra copy!) I'd say I'm not the only person who is curious about how this all worked out for them. To give you a feel for the scale of the project, 101 days is every day from now until October 17th. And they had sex every day? Really? No "I had a bad day," or "Gosh, I'm exhausted," or even, "I'm feeling under the weather"?
And then (and this is the part that intrigues me, I admit) they wrote a book about it? When Sweet Husband first told me about that part, my first reaction was, "Hmm, that would make an interesting blog." We talked about it for a minute or so, and quickly realized it would be fine as long as we could guarantee that only complete strangers would read it. (No, I don't have a new secret blog--complete anonymity is not possible!) I mean, Douglas Brown's mother and mother-in-law are probably going to read his book. I'm fairly "out there" with my personal life, but that's just a little...yeah....
So, for this week's Wednesday poll:
Would you make a pact with someone to have sex everyday for 101 days? Think you'd keep it up if you did? And--assuming you made it through--do you think you could write a tell-all book about your experience? If you're a blogger or writer (or even just active on the internet) where's the line for you of things that are private and things that are not?
Comment and discuss.
