How Parents Can Sneak In Sexy Times Fifty Shades Style [VIDEO]

Buzz, Sex

Just because you have kids doesn't mean you can't embrace your kinky side.

With the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie set to be released nationwide tomorrow, we're just going to be upfront and say that we're more than ready to take notes (if you catch our drift). Whether you're a fan of the series or not, you can't deny that the book seriesand subsequent film franchisehas made it much easier to get a little kinky in the bedroom (not to mention more socially acceptable). While there's nothing sexier than wanting to spice up your sex life, the real question is how can you pull this off...when you have kids running around.

Let's be honest. Is it really possible to try new things in bed with your husband when you have so many responsibilities on your plate?

As parents, there's no question that we love our kids and enjoy spending every minute that we can with them. But there are times where a break from all of the constant arguments, dirty laundry and messy rooms is much needed. In fact, according to YourTango's Senior VP Melanie Gorman, LMFT Ian Kerner, author Dr. Sonia Borg, Lifestyle and Parenting Strategist Natalie Blais and LPC Megan Pollock, even parents can benefit from the sexy teachings of the "Fifty Shades" series.

Hearing them discuss the different ways that having a healthy and intimate relationship with our partners can affect our own relationships with our kids seriously put everything into perspective. How can you expect to be able to connect with your kids if you don't even feel connected to your own partner?

As a role model, how can you get rid of that feeling of guilt?
We couldn't agree more that there's nothing wrong with wanting to introduce new kinks into your sex life. Being a role model doesn't mean that you can't enjoy your private time with your partner.

There's no handbook lying around that states that as a parent, you MUST be into "vanilla sex" and not expect much else. We don't know about you but after listening to our experts' spot-on advice, we're more than willing to heat things up!
