As kids, most of us hated nap time and for good reason. We were kids. We had all this energy and the adults of the world wanted us to temper it. That just felt wrong on so many levels. Then, we get older and suddenly, we don’t just miss nap time. We regret all the terrible things we ever said about it.
Let’s not lie to ourselves. We’ve all had days when we just wanted to step back and take a good long nap. It didn’t matter if it was the middle of the afternoon and the sun was shining. Sometimes, our bodies and our ambitions fail us. We need to rest. While there’s a right way and a wrong way to go about naps, there’s also a way to make it sexy.
I know this because my parents often napped together on weekends. One of my college roommates also enjoyed napping with his girlfriend and fully clothed, no less. It’s not the sexiest or most intimate act a couple can share, but there’s something special about its simplicity. It may never play a part in an epic romance story, but it’s one of those simple moments that can bring out the best in a couple.
I have a feeling that when I meet that special someone, she’s going to have days when she needs a good long nap in the afternoon, just like me. When that moment comes, I’ll be the first one to curl up in bed and rest with her. I look forward to that moment. In the meantime, enjoy this Daily Sexy Musing centered around the intimate aspects of afternoon naps. Enjoy!
The sun is out, the day is not done, and yet we’re both exhausted. The energy we woke up with is long gone. Once again, our desires exceed our capabilities. There’s time to spare, but no way to make us of it. That’s okay, though. Feeling tired is an easy fix. It’s also an opportunity.
We abandon our current plans.
We retreat to the bedroom.
We crawl under the sheets.
We find each other with our last bit of strength.
Even as abundant sunlight fills the room, we lull ourselves into a peaceful state. The world slows down. Everything becomes less complicated. There’s nothing elaborate or theatrical about this moment. We’re just two lovers, curled up together in need of a little rest.
A nap is just what we need. Sharing it together turns it from a mundane act to something more intimate. It’s not the end of our day. We still have hopes, dreams, and goals. The only thing we lack is energy and focus. A little sleep will get us just that. If we’re lucky, it’ll lead to something greater.
In our drowsy state, our bodies find one another. A simple touch is all it takes to soothe a world of stress. It gives meaning to the coming slumber, reminding me that I have someone special for me when I awaken.
With you, a little rest goes a long way.
With you, a little energy can lead to something far greater.
With you, a little moment on a sunny afternoon creates a lasting memory.
Lying with you, so peaceful and quiet, I close my eyes with confidence and hope. I know when we awaken, we’ll have more than just new energy to drive us. It’s easy to demonstrate our love when we’re full of energy and passion. To share it when we’re tired and drained reveals something deeper.
An afternoon nap will refresh our passion.
What we do with them is up to us.
