Any parent will tell you that your life changes in pretty much every way after you have kids. Sometimes parents are open about it, and sometimes the effects are a little too...personal...to share with mixed company.

Well, that's what Twitter's for, so check out parents sharing the experiences on how having kids affected Mom and Dad's sex life!

"Dirty talk" can take on a whole new, less sexy meaning with kids in the mix.

Far more practical, far less fun, wouldn't you say?

Everything old is new again as parents, once again, find themselves sneaking around to have some fun.

Granted, the kids won't ground them or anything, but it's awkward enough that you'll want to keep things on the DL.

Nothing wrong with a little white lie, is there?

I'm pretty sure everyone can relate to this innocent bit of deception to engage in something that's...not quite so innocent.

It's hard to keep the fire alive when there are just so many practical, unsexy things to take care of.

Who wants to get busy while dealing with a lice breakout?

"Sexy" can take on a whole new meaning.

It can get so bad that you forget #SexAfterKids is even a thing that can happen.

Hopefully, you can get a sitter or take a vacation soon enough and remember.

With messes and clean-up duties flying around all the time, sometimes you're not feeling like you look your best.

Oh, well. You're in it together. You take those fancy socks and food stains and get to work! Don't let a few stains keep the romance out of your life. Well, at least don't let them do it all the time!
