As you might have heard, most people ditch their New Year resolutions just 10 days in.
And while some goals, like hitting the gym every day (take a breather, trust me) or swearing off sugar, might break you in less than two weeks, I was curious to know if a New Year's sex goal (a.k.a. the best kind of goal) would be easier to stick to.
A few days before the ball dropped, I asked eight men and women what kind of sexual resolutions they were making for 2016. Then, I checked back in with them eight days later to find out how it was going so far—or if it was going at all.
Here's what they said:
Have More One-Night Stands
“I haven't had one yet. I slept over at a guy’s place, but before I left the next morning he asked for my number. Since I could see myself dating him, I gave him my digits.” —Michael M.
Ask for What I Want in Bed
“I’ve stuck with it! I'm pretty demanding, actually, but my boyfriend isn't offended. He just rolls with it.” —Ashley B.
[Editor's note: Yay, Ashley! Get it, girl.]
Try Anal (As in Giving, Not Recieving)
“I still haven’t brought it up with my girlfriend, but keep your fingers crossed for butt stuff in 2016!” —Cory B.
Stop Banging Just to Bang
“I wanted to be less promiscuous this year and hold out for someone I’m really into. I haven’t had sex once this year, and I can’t believe I’m saying that like it’s a positive thing.” —Mark S.
“I haven’t done it yet. Let me know if anyone is interested in helping me out with some prostate stimulation.” —Garrett S.
Sex in Public
“I did it! I spent the holidays in Florida and messed around with a guy on the beach. We didn’t go all the way, but I’m still going to count it.” —Chelsea S.
Keep It in My Pants
“I wanted to be less, um, free with my vagina. I’ve had sex a couple of times this year already, but with the same guy—who I really like. Plus, I was the one who made the first move, so...” —Erin G.
Less Casual Hookups
“I wanted to have fewer one-night stands. Since I haven't been drinking so far this year, there hasn't been an opportunity to turn what might be a one-night stand into something more. I don’t see any reason why I can’t make that happen, though.” —Nick B.
