okay, this may be a little tmi, but it’s the intimacy board so it’s supposed to be right? 😛
what do you do when the “moment” gets completely ruined?
hubby and i were having a really nice morning together, taking turns doing wii fit yoga, and both decided to take a shower at the same time, and decided to take a shower together. this rarely happens for us–he just doesn’t like to share the hot water, and so when we do, it usually gets a little steamy…but we just moved to a new apartment, and the bathroom doesn’t have a fan, and the fire alarm is ridiculously sensitive and starts going off before anything even happens besides like, actually getting clean. and our ceilings are really high and it’s really hard to turn off. so we’re running around for like 5-10 minutes desperately trying to get the fire alarm to turn off, climbing on different ladders, waving towels in front of it, finding fans, etc. hubby finally manages to turn it off, breaking it and knocking out of the ceiling, leaving me to have to sweep up the broken bits of ceiling plaster and dust….yeaaaah, not so romantic anymore! and then we went our separate ways–he’s watching tv and i’m trying to get some school work done in a different room, but i just feel kinda sad about the ruined moment 🙁
so what do you guys do when something like this happens? shrug it off? try and restart something?

Sorry, first off, lol. Stuff has happened to us like this. Usually we’re just so busy trying to fix whatever happened that we end up forgetting about what we were doing or are time crunch so we’re like quickly moving on. But if we have time and one of us is disinterested after this, we’ll just cuddle or start talking about something. We like to debate so we’ll just do that. Or we’ll lighten the mood by joking around or something, and by doing that it disperses awkardness/passion.

We just laugh it off, really. Sometimes I enjoy those memories a lot more than when everything goes perfect!

thanks for commiserating ladies 😉 it kind of felt like a scene out of “american pie” or something, like really? the fire alarm??

This happened to us last night! We were fooling around and then my mister gives me this hilarious “crazy eyes” look for fun. It was so funny and we laughed forever, but it totally ruined the sexy moment and we went to sleep instead.

We usually laugh ourselves silly and then resume what we started.

That’s life. : ) Some sexy, fun and exciting moments become ruined, but some boring routine moments become sexy. It all balances out.

@2ndtime: that’s a really great way of thinking about it!
i wish we could have just laughed it off today! hubs just got so frustrated and angry about not being able to turn off the smoke detector that there just was no going back…but there will of course be other moments 🙂

Once, we visited a lake at dusk…it was just the two of us, and I had a small blanket in my car. The moment was very beautiful so we decided to try to make love on the blanket on the sand next to the water. After about two minutes, we noticed a swarm of mosquitos hovering around us. About 10 were on my legs, 5 on his head, a bunch on my neck, etc. Yup, that pretty much killed the moment!

Awww sometimes there’s just no saving the moment! I would’ve been so aggravated in your scenario that I wouldn’t have tried to rebound it either!
Sometimes you can though! Last night things were getting pretty hot and heavy and somehow the dog (who is not allowed in our bedroom) got in the door and started licking FI’s foot at the end of the bed. Ewww!! This proceeded to turn into a giggle fest, kicking the dog out, and then we couldn’t get back in our comfy position in bed and I swear it was like we had never had sex before haha! We just couldn’t get our heads/limbs whatever in the right spots!! Then every time Fiance approached me to kiss me I bursted out laughing. It took us literally 15 minutes to get a hold of ourselves as we were both having giggle fits, but the moment was eventually saved and it turned into a really good night 😉

That sucks! I know when something happens like that to us we both laugh it off! Sometimes the moment just can’t be saved and it’s much better to laugh about it than to feel sad 🙂
