- A. in Niagara Fall, ON

My husband works nearly all the time and I stay home with our four children under five years of age but we always manage to find time to satisfy each other, daily.

When he's about to get out of the shower, I give him a shoulder rub and then run my hands down his back and work my way into some oral action. It makes for a wild and erotic night for us in the bedroom. It is also one of the only places we can sneak in a little foreplay because we have three kids running around the house.
- T. in Oromocto, NB

My husband and I set aside one day a month for us. Our 3 kids are off to grandma's for the evening and overnight visit. We enjoy a bubble bath in our oversized jet tub. Lots of bubbles, wine and candles. Concentrating on only the two of us. It's very romantic and I'm giddy with excitement everytime the day nears. It's also a time we can talk without being interrupted.
- L. in Woodslee, ON

I add extra excitement to our sex life by putting coupons in his lunch box so he has all day to think about the task that needs to be done once the kids are in bed.
- M. in Hagersville, ON

Installing mirror closet doors in the bedroom!
- D. in Belle River, ON

Sometimes my husband and I pretend we're meeting each other for the first time and we go out on a first date. It sounds silly but it's like having sex for the first time because we get the first time butterflies of what the person's going to be like.
- L. in Toronto, ON

I watch x-rated movies when my husband isn't around.
