She further claimed that due to pandemic the children are mostly at home so she decided to tell them

Before the pandemic, when their children were in school, sports clubs, or play dates, she and her husband had sex, but none of these has been available lately, so she wanted to take an unconventional path.


Writing for HuffPost, Jamie said: "A few months into our self-imposed quarantine, a few months in which I felt like having sex with my husband was akin to sneaking around - and not in the good way, like when you're 16 and riding on the back of the 'bad boy's' motorcycle - I decided to tell the kids exactly when we were having sex."

She said it felt like "lying" to try to hide it from her children and that she just couldn't do it anymore. Jamie said she told her kids: "If I close the door and turn on the fan in the hall, please leave us alone. We're having sex.'"

According to her honest decision helped her and her husband to spend more of this quality time together and improved the act's affection

Unsurprisingly, at the revelation, Jamie's children laughed and squirmed, but they understood the desire of their parents to spend this time together. She said that her honest decision helped her and her husband to spend more of this quality time together and improved the act's affection to what it was when they were a younger couple in their twenties.

Jamie said that the chance it offered her to reconcile sexually with her husband was a godsend, portraying the pandemic as 'stressful'. She said that they wanted to make up for it by having "good sex" when she and her husband were forced to give update nights in restaurants.

She insists that in the long term, being so honest about sex would be good for her kids.

Although Jamie acknowledges that her truthful approach is sure to lift other parents' eyebrows, she insists that in the long term, being so honest about sex would be good for her kids.


She said: "I hope when they think back on the mess that 2020 has become - if we are all lucky enough to live long enough to look back on it, no guarantee these days or ever - they will approach the idea of sex (and, when they start having it, the act of sex) with less shame and secrecy than I did, and they will value how much their parents cared about each other."
