Would You Take a 7 Days of Sex Challenge?
Lifetime’s new series, 7 Days of Sex, is all about couples amping up the va-va-voom in their marriages with sex. Care to join?
A couple of weeks ago a BettyConfidential editor forwarded me an email from Lifetime Television announcing their new reality series, 7 Days of Sex … Would I be interested in participating in my own 7-day challenge? “After 7 days you won’t believe what couples discover about themselves underneath the sheets,” they wrote. “When the going gets tough, could your marriage / relationship survive… 7 Days of Sex?”
I don’t know! After being married for quite some time and with a family that has grown from “Tea for Two” to “Table for Four!”, let’s just say that having TOO much sex is not a problem; so, of course, I was intrigued. But …
As you can probably tell, I’m way more discreet about my sex life than the people on the show. Do I have what it takes to not only demand sex seven nights in a row, but also write about it, too?

Why, yes, I think I do! (It helps that my husband had a most enthusiastic response to the proposal!) However, I’m not going to tell you my name, so you can just call me Mrs. Betty. First and foremost, I don’t want my kids Googling my name to read about this little adventure. Is that totally square? And here’s another confession: I actually found myself blushing watching the first episode! I know. Paris Hilton I am not. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have an inner sex goddess … Though she’s been pretty neglected of late.
I’m sure my husband would agree — if he even took the time to think about it. But, alas, that’s something that’s a rare commodity these days — TIME! Time to just be together, to connect on a romantic, fun level, to spend even 15 minutes together that doesn’t involve anything else.
So what the heck. We’re going to try it. Every day, starting tonight, for seven days straight, we’re going to have sex.
I’ll be reporting back as the week goes by — and I’d love to know if you decide to join the challenge yourself! 7 Days of Sex airs Thursdays at 10pm EST on Lifetime. Find out more here!
Mrs. Betty is a regular contributor to BettyConfidential, though she usually uses her own name. She’s crafty!
