Like most people you probably tend to stay pretty busy, so an opportunity to spend an entire weekend alone with your partner is truly something to get excited about. Some people automatically start planning a weekend getaway when that happens, while others prefer the idea of spending a couple of days catching up on their Hulu queue. There’s really something to be said for spending the entire weekend alone in bed together instead though. The following are just a few great reasons to stay in bed the next time you find you’ve got a weekend all to yourselves.

  1. It makes for a great relationship reboot.

Couples that have been together a long time tend to fall into a regular routine that works for them, both in and out of the bedroom, and there’s not necessarily anything wrong with that. An entire weekend spent in bed together is the perfect opportunity to indulge yourselves to an extent life rarely allows for. It’s a chance to just forget everything else for a couple of days, stay in bed, focus on each other, and really take the time to appreciate what you have together.

  1. There’s plenty of time to experiment.

Have you and your partner talked about trying something a little outside the box when it comes to your bedroom play? Maybe you’ve thought about bringing a new sex toy into the mix for the first time or finally taking that brand-new set of bed restraints for a spin. Maybe your partner’s birthday is coming up and you’ve been meaning to surprise them by bringing a pet fantasy of theirs to life. Whatever the case may be, there’s no time like a weekend in bed to really take your time and fully explore something new.

  1. It can really give your sex life a boost.

It happens to even the sexiest, most adoring couples every so often. You get busy, life gets in the way, and your sex life winds up temporarily taking a back seat to everything else you might have on your plate. Staying in bed and treating yourselves to a sex marathon the next time you have a weekend free is pretty much guaranteed to kickstart your sex life into high gear again, as you’ll be reminded all over again of how much the two of you love having sex with each other.

  1. It’s terrific for your health.

Really great sex and plenty of it can work wonders for your health. Sex is terrific for managing stress, balancing moods, and boosting the immune system. It’s a serious workout that helps build strength, supports stamina, and burns plenty of calories as well. Having better sex and more of it only multiplies these benefits, so the occasional multi-day lovefest is as good for your body as it is for your mind and soul.

  1. It’s a much better way to kill time.

Sure, you can spend yet another weekend binge watching television or catching up on all that cleaning you’ve been meaning to do, but… do you really want to? You can do those things anytime. A weekend you have completely to yourselves absolutely deserves to be savored and enjoyed to the fullest, and there’s no better way to do that than by getting down and dirty together over and over again. Full-fledged sex weekends are especially amazing ways to spend a weekend when gloomy or inclement weather would have kept you cooped up indoors the whole time anyway.

  1. You’ll face the coming week in the best possible mood.

Stress has a way of building up on you when you’re not really paying attention. The fact that so many people skip lunches, work late, cancel plans, or cut their sleeping time short to make sure they get everything done doesn’t exactly help. Treating yourselves to all the sex you can handle for an entire weekend straight is the perfect way to get back on track. Not only will your systems be flooded with endorphins the entire time, but you’ll sleep better and fall asleep faster because of all the exercise. You’ll practically float into your respective offices come Monday morning.

  1. Everyone deserves a break now and then.

Every so often, it’s just plain good for you to put your responsibilities on hold and revisit what life was like when you were younger, more passionate, and more carefree. An all-weekend sex-a-thon in bed is a golden opportunity to do exactly that. You can make that weekend all about each other, just like you used to do when you first started dating and instinctively seized every opportunity to simple enjoy each other.

At the end of the day, everyone needs a weekend spent in bed simply relaxing and decompressing to the greatest extent possible. We personally can’t think of any better way to do that than by grabbing your partner, hitting the sheets, and staying there all weekend long.
