A mum's video featuring all the reasons why she can't have sex on a "school night" has mothers everywhere in hysterics.

Meredith Masony, who blogs at That's Inappropriate and whose motto is, "I'll say it, so you don't have to," uploaded a video to her Facebook page called "Are You Serious?" 

"Do you make excuses in the bedroom?" the mother-of-three wrote. "I must admit I sometimes do."

The clip shows Masony offering up excuse after hilarious excuse, to her ever-hopeful spouse.

Here are just some of the highlights:

"I had a chilli-dog for lunch," she says on Monday. "I'm a little bloated."

"I did like eighteen loads of laundry today," Masony says on Tuesday night. "No exaggeration. Pretty sure it was eighteen. I'm tired."

"I haven't showered in three days and I smell like a bag of onions," the mother-of-three says on Wednesday night. "Is any of this turning you off? Nothing?"


"Those are my pants, not your pants. Can I help you? Did you lose something?" is her Thursday night response.

When at last the weekend arrives, Masony tells her spouse he can have five minutes, "and I'm not taking off my shirt".

The very funny video has been viewed over 550,000 times and has garnered over 1,000 comments as of Friday.

"You are my absolute, no-weekday-sex hero!!!" wrote one woman. "I swear on a stack of bibles that I have used/said every one of these things at one time in my life! It's no longer that I don't have time, it's that I don't have the energy for all it takes to have sex now."

"This is me and my husband,' wrote another. "We have four and youngest is two months. I can't with his sex drive! He is the guy in the video. EXACTLY THAT GUY! I will soon go back to work, plus laundry, plus doc appts, plus cooking and cleaning…I just want sleep!"

Not everyone could relate to Masony's video, however, one mum writing, "If my hubby wanted it 4-5 nights in a row, I'd be all over that! I don't get the opportunity to EVER turn it down!"

Others expressed concern that repeatedly rejecting one's spouse would only lead to infidelity or marital problems.

"Wow. Is this real life?" wrote one commenter. "I don't understand how one expects to keep a man or a relationship alive for that matter."

"I can't imagine treating him that way," wrote another. "We have 4 kids combined, but we always make sure we have time for each other.

"People, it's a JOKE," another commenter added. "An exaggeration for comedic effect, not a documentary on her bedroom behavior."

Modern Mumma blogger Mel Watts received a similar backlash for posting about her "quickie" with husband Nolan, after turning down his sexual advances countless times. While many saw the funny side of her tongue-in-cheek post about married sex, other criticised the young mum – who later admitted feeling "suffocated" by the vicious attacks from trolls.
