It’s the big night and big sex is guaranteed, right? Wedding night, that is.
Well, turns out, not so much. A recent poll revealed that at least 25% of newly weds don’t actually have sex on their wedding night and “experts” estimate the real number could be much higher. Why no sex? Too drunk and too tired head the list of excuses.
What’s really going on is a triumph of programming. Getting married is a party, a celebration, a reason to get, as one poll respondent poignantly explained, “really hammered.”
Hmn, let’s talk about sex. What’s it for? Fun, for sure. But, really, what’s it for? How about, the creation of new human life? Now, that sounds, well, like something more than a reason to get drunk. It sounds, dare we say it, important and even, another word risk, sacred.
Oops, is that word too “heavy,” too spiritual? Maybe, for some, but imagine a society where sex was honored for it’s true intended purpose and where marriage was celebrated for its meaning - the symbolic and literal union of the two primary energetic forces in the cosmos, male and female.
Now, that would be some wedding night.
