A man from Manchester is looking forward to Christmas more than anyone in the world since it's the only time of the year when his fiance allows him to have sex!
Jen Stephens, 23, and Rob Walker, 24, from Prestwich, Manchester, have a loving relationship, but they only get to have sex once per year. The reason? Young Jen made up this strange rule, and she believes her man appreciates her more because of it.
What's even stranger is that the couple still managed to get pregnant, and they are now parents of a three-month-old daughter, conceived last Christmas.
Speaking to Fabulous, Jen revealed:
"I know it sounds crazy, but this works for us.
"The fact we set aside Christmas for sex has actually made us stronger as a couple., we want each other even more now."
The mom of one continued:
"We're happy to just kiss and cuddle for the rest of the year."
"While most families are settling down to watch the Queen's speech, part-time sales assistant Jen and trainee IT manager Rob will be celebrating their 'merry sex-mas.'"
Did she really say 'merry sex-mas?' Because it sounds too sinful, yet if they are getting some only once a year, they can call it whatever they like.
Once-a-year sex pact
Jen told the media outlet that other couples, their friends, arent' that different. She explained the reasoning behind her once-a-year sex rule, but we're still not convinced.
"Just because we're not bonkers for bonking doesn't make us crazy."
"The sex itself makes the anticipation and build-up worth it. It's the best day of the year - why not make it even better?"
If you don't understand their reasoning, Jen's fine with it, as she claimed:
"I don't expect people to understand our rules. We're doing things our way and don't care what other people think."
"Our relationship is stronger for our once-a-year sex vow, and we wouldn't have it any other way."
The couple has welcomed a child together, and they want another one:
"Most of the time, I was too shattered to get interested in sex, and Rob was so busy with work, we just loved the fact we had each other."
"Last Christmas, the sex was amazing, and we did it five times. "
"I found out we'd conceived our first child on Christmas Day three weeks later, and we were both absolutely thrilled. "
It's good to know that they, at least, don't have an only one act deal. It's a whole day activity.
Though this pact seems strange, it's not like they're doing anything illegal. Yet, it sounds like a punishment, not an actual Christmas gift.
Nevertheless, according to a recent survey published in The Guardian, young people are experiencing severe drought. Over 40 percent of 18-24-year-olds have never had sex, and six percent have sex less than once a year.
Sounds depressing and Facebook users agree:
"I couldn't go that long."
"I don't believe any guy would agree to that."
But Jen doesn't care, as she continued talking about her love story:
"December 25 has special significance for us, so we decided to make it super special."
"I met Rob in 2017 on Christmas Day, at a party. He was studying business and IT at the University of Manchester and stayed in the city over the holidays."
After that the couple started dating.
How did they start with the X-mas sex ban?
Jen sort of blames past relationships for the ban. She said:
"We got to know each other, and both wanted to take it slow. I'd just dated a guy for 12 months, and it ended badly."
"Rob had a similar experience with a previous girlfriend, and he wanted to be sure the next time he had sex with someone that she was right for him."
In January, Rob started a year-long exchange program in Los Angeles, so the pair had a long-distance romance.
Jen said about the challenging times:
"We spent hours on the phone and video calling each other, it made our connection so much stronger."
When Rob returned home for Christmas in 2018, they decided to spend the day alone. This also marked the first time they made love.
The young mom added:
"It was like we'd done it a million times before. We'd spent so much time talking to each other - discussing everything from sex to favorite foods."
"We were intimate on all levels, not just sexually. We don't have to prove ourselves by constantly shagging."
A week later, Rob proposed on New Year's Eve. Jen continued talking about closeness:
"Sex, for us, was never a priority. It was all about cuddles and closeness."
"I told Rob we should have a sex ban until the next Christmas because it had worked so well the year before. "
"He honestly wasn't shocked when I suggested it. We were already engaged, so he knew I was committed, and we thought it would make Christmas extra special."
What does Rob think?
In case you thought this was a one-sided decision, you're wrong. Rob is just as "guilty" as Jen. He told The Sun:
"I am proud of our commitment and Christmas sex vow. Jen makes me wait, but it's worth it."
"We're getting married on Christmas Day 2021, and hopefully, we will have baby number two by then."
"Waiting for sex makes our relationship special, and I know Jen is going to be my wife."
"We want to make our own rules."
We wish them all the best, but we're still curious about this deal. Additionally, don't they realize the health benefits of sex? Oh well, to each their own!
