Parents: Grab all the Sex You Can

January 27, 2014 2 min read

I recently wrote an article about new research that was being done that found that childless couples were happier than their counterparts with children.  It was an interesting insight into just how hard it is to maintain a healthy relationship with the demands of children.  Interestingly enough, it wasn't the children that made a marriage unhappy...it was the lack of time spent together being a couple.

In the same research done by Open University, fathers were twice as likely to list 'lack of sex' as what they disliked most about their relationship.  Something that's not exactly surprising.  While children might not enhance one's love life, they do send personal happiness soaring.

So after you've taken the requisite six weeks off after the birth of your child it is imperative that parents try to find every opportunity to have sex.  Parenting, especially learning how to handle a newborn is exhausting and it can cause rifts in a relationship.  There's nothing worse than feeling cut off from sleep all together and then feeling as if you and your partner are more like ships passing in the night than a couple.

Remember when there weren't little feet running around the house?  You used to talk about more than just kids?  Keep that up.  Try for a date night twice a month if you can manage it and if you can't, don't spend your time watching tv.  Shut off the television and connect.

Open University found that the happiest couples were ones that took time out during the week to have a little cup of tea (or coffee) and simply sat down and talked with their partner.  There was a reason you fell in love in the first place and decided to have children.  Have sex.  Talk a lot.  Don't begrudge yourself the private time with your spouse or partner.  Sex and date nights do wonders for a relationship.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
