Just in time: February 13 marks the third annual Break Up With Your Ex Day on YourTango. Between now and then, we'll be doing all we can to help readers get over their exes—for good! We've teamed up with Astroglide, maker of personal lubricants and other sexy products, to seek out reader advice on a very real and dreaded part of the post-breakup period: avoiding ex sex!
According to our recent survey, one-third of YourTango readers have had "ex sex" with a recent ex. It's unsurprising to know that experts agree sleeping with a person you're also trying to "get over" is counterproductive. Plus, it inhibits you from being available to meet someone new, which 44 percent of readers say is the "best way to get over an ex."
Between now and February 12, in the comments below, enter your advice for the best way to avoid ex sex—in 10 or fewer words—and you'll be entered to win one of three sexy gift baskets from Astroglide (not to be used with your ex, of course). YourTango editors and Astroglide representatives will review the submissions and choose their three favorite 10-word-or-less pieces of advice, to be announced February 13. Check out the prizes below (complete terms & conditions here):
- Grand Prize Gift Basket includes an Astroglide t-shirt, Astroglide water tumbler, Astroglide coffee mug, 2.5oz Astroglide personal lubricant, Astroglide Natural personal lubricant, Astroglide Sensitive Skin Gel personal lubricant, Love Dice & chocolates (a $100 value).
- 2nd Prize Gift Basket includes an Astroglide Water Tumbler or Coffee Mug, Astroglide 2.5oz Personal Lubricant, Astroglide X Silicone Personal Lubricant, Astroglide Natural Personal Lubricant, Astroglide Sensitive Skin Gel Personal Lubricant, Love Dice & chocolates (a $50 value).
- 3rd Prize Gift Basket includes Astroglide 2.5oz Personal Lubricant, Astroglide X Silicone Personal Lubricant, Astroglide Natural Personal Lubricant, Love Dice & chocolates (a $25 value).
