Remember when Ronald Regan used trickle down economics to assure us that the massive tax cuts he was giving corporations and the wealthy would ‘trickle down’ to low income people as the rich spent their extra money.
It didn’t really work. But last night a friend of proposed a much better use of the trickle down theory… trickle down sexonomics. After a weekend a weekend getaway of unbelievable sexual adventure with her partner, she noticed three things:
- Sex begets sex: Rather than being sexually satiated, they came home hornier and lusting after each other more than ever. Despite being tired from the weekend, she said that she and her partner were having the most intense sex both evenings since their return and were trying to ft in quickies in morning.
- Everyone feels the love: Since returning home from their weekend sex-fest, she said everyone seems to be treating her more nicely. Her kids are in great moods and helping out around the house, everyone seems happier and work and – no lie – a guy in a coffee shop came up to her Monday morning and said “I don’t want to seem creepy but I just wanted to tell you that you’re fucking gorgeous”. She thinks she must be giving off a glow or an energy that telegraphs her happiness to others.. and it draws them to her.
- She’s a better parent: Being a parent can be stressful, thankless work. We’ve all been at points were we don’t think we can handle one more squabble, homework marathon or shuttling to their 33 weekly soccer games, guitar practices, art class… Being sexually connected with your partner does two huge things – (i) it gives you the break/indulgence you need to put your best self back into the parenting game and (ii) it models happiness and affection for your children.. don’t you want you children to seek relationships full of love and affection?
And this my friends is Trickle Down Sexonomics… its a thing.
