Sex challenges don’t come around too frequently, but there’s a new one that a couple posted onto Reddit that is suddenly becoming a viral trend. Is it worth trying out for yourself? Well, that’s up to you and your partner, but, at the very least, we explain how the 30-day sex challenge works, as well as why it might be fun to conquer.

So, how did this whole 30-day sex challenge begin? Well, to be blunt, it was to help improve a couple’s relationship, hoping to increase the amount of sex they were having each month — since it’s a necessary habit to have for your health, seriously! — and to try a few new things. Since the Reddit post, though, the information has gone viral, leading to loads of comments, feedback and other reactions.

OK, now that you’ve gotten a little backstory, let’s take a quick peek at how it actually works and what you and your partner need to do. Basically, every single day, your partner and you take part in a specific sexy dare, refusing to miss it because of some excuse. While each person does get a couple of veto days if something does come up — which results in “normal” sex — the sex challenge can’t extend beyond 40 days. The hope is to push each other out of a comfort zone, discover new things to please one another and build a better sexual relationship. Here are their rules.

Rules: 1. Each partner can modify/replace the activity for two of the days of their choosing before the challenge starts. No edits after the challenge begins.

  1. Each partner gets two VETO days in which they can choose to just have sex and bypass a specific day’s activity.
  2. Partners can also add anything to the list if both partners agree.
  3. Periods, holidays, business travel will be treated as “pause” if necessary.
  4. If a day is missed, an extra day will be added to the challenge increasing the challenge length from 30, 31, 32, and so on. The challenge will not exceed 40 days.
  5. The goal is to push your comfort zone and try something new. If a partner is uncomfortable with a challenge and they no longer have an edit or VETO, they can borrow a partners VETO. In this case, the partner who gives up a VETO gets to pick the new activity.
  6. Condoms and birth control should be used when desired or required.

Sounds like fun, right? Just look at some of the things this bold couple tried during their 30-day sex challenge — which sure looks like it would be fulfilling (and successful in its objective).

Day 1—Have sex at a time other than before bed. Lunch time romp, morning sex, or after work workout.
