A Woman's Viral Facebook Post Reveals the Hard Truths About 'Parent Sex'

An Australian mother has shared the hard truths about having sex as a parent with 4 kids!

"We had parent sex today..."

And thus begins a truly brilliant blog about having sex with your partner as a parent. 

Constance Hall, a writer from Perth, has eloquently described the complications that arise when one tries to get off when your time is occupied by children 24/7.

"You know what parent sex is. It's that 3.5 minutes you get in between changing nappies and making food.

"Where you notice that all of your kids are pretty distracted.

"Where you realise it's been almost a month since you banged and are starting to feel like flat mates.

"Where your husbands seduction consists of one finger pointing towards the bedroom and the other hand on his dick."

The post goes on to describe having sex under the doona just in case the kids walk in, and calling it "yoga" when caught in the act. 

Constance also got real about her post-pregnancy body: "saggy boobs, baby belly pouch, hairy minge and all". 

Constance posted the musings on her Facebook page on Tuesday, January 5, only for the post to quickly garner over 100,000 likes and nearly 30,000 shares. 

In response to the post, the mum of two said she's now "so over excited and temporarily up myself I can't cope."

She even said she was "recognised as the Facey parent shagger at the servo". (Which, by the way, is probably one of the most Australian sentences ever uttered.)
