UPDATED: Granbury couple taking on 30 Day Sex Challenge
There’s a big difference between doing it for 30 days and telling everybody around you that you’re doing it.
Editor's note: Joanna Cattanach received the following e-mail from the subjects of this story after she published it. Due to the potential danger to their child, we have removed their names from the story, but since our policy is to not take stories down after we have published them, we are choosing to keep the story up.
Please take down all and everything associated with this article my sons life was threatned last night. We did this for a fun and did what the news station asked and its all fine and dandy to talk shit or have people comment on it but not my 2 year old! I have filed a police report and WB 33 has taken everything down it is very scary for us that was never something Anyone could have thought about happening! Sad that it had to be like this but there are to many sick people out there!!!! Someone got ahold of my add., they know where I live and literally said they were going to take my child out of his misery so he didn't have to kill himself in high school. That is not funny!!
Local TV station CW 33 is currently featuring a Granbury couple participating in a 30 Day Sex Challenge. No, it is not live or being filmed, though it sounds like producers might not be opposed to the idea. [names redacted] have been getting busy for almost a week now and blog daily about doing the deed. The station is also following up with insightful pieces like “The Sex Diet” and they even featured Dan and Jennifer, the Frisco sex couple who I interviewed last year. (Hi, Dan and Jennifer!)
Here’s their Day 7 entry: "So its been a week!!! This morning my husband wakes me up and says... 'Hurry up baby we have to do this quick, [name redacted] asleep I have to go to work and you will be staying the night in Dallas!' Its a great thing he did that I wasn’t even thinking about it we would have missed a day!!! Just goes to show how romantic we can be somedays. lol..."
I particuarly like Day 2:“Well everything’s on the up and up ... literally!!!!"
The [name redacted] aren’t the first North Texas couple to participate in a sex challenge (heck, lots of us are challenged sexually and we aren’t even doin’ it!) Last year, Rev. Ed Young of Fellowship Church in Grapevine put a bed on the stage and preached about the importance of sex in a married couple’s life and challenged parishioners to do it for God for a week. But I wonder what happens on day 28 because if [name redacted] is like any other ovulating woman in North Texas, Mother Nature is going to come calling and nobody wants to have sex on their cycle. More importantly, what happens if she gets pissed at him? Yes, sex does take away tension in a marriage but other little things bring that tension right back. I feel for the [name redacted]. Every married couple goes through dry spells and you wonder what happened to the passion through the slick sheets and sweaty nights. And if you don’t make intimacy a priority in a marriage (even to the point of setting aside time and penciling in a quickie) it’s quickly set aside and forgotten about. But I’m a blogger and even I won’t go into the daily intimate details of my married life. But if I did it would be something like this:
Day 1: Fell asleep watching First 48. Cat licked me on the face. Sounds of husband snoring in bedroom heard through wall.
Day 5: Got felt up at night and rubbed through blanket. Told him to stop it because I’m tired.
Day 7: Too much tequila and now bedside lamp is broken and lost bra. Great night I think.
Good luck [name redacted]. I know it’s one of those great sweeps stories for the station but there’s a big difference between doing it for 30 days and telling every person in your neighborhood/community/church/antiquers/kid’s school/family/strangers/bloggers like me that you’re doing it for 30 days and giving them details about how and when you’re doing it. That kind of private information made public tends to bite you in the end. But maybe you’re into that sort of thing?
