Today I learned something new about relationships. I learned that as we age, sometimes our bodies don’t do what we would like them to any more. Illness, both mental and physical, along with the medications we have to take to stay healthy, can interfere with both our sex drive and our ability to perform.
I heard stories about erectile dysfunction, loss of libido and painful intercourse. One lady hadn’t had sex with her partner for 11 years.
These stories made me sad and made me realise that a wonderful, healthy, raging sex life isn’t something to be taken for granted.
Today I am grateful that I am with someone who turns me on, who can’t get enough of me, and who is a skilled and attentive lover.
I will never again complain if he pesters me when I’m busy.
I take my hat off to those women and men who stay in sexless relationships because they love their partner unconditionally. To be honest, I’m not sure what I’d do in the same situation. Being in love is certainly not ALL about sex, but it must be bloody difficult to be forced to do without it.
The next time you catch your breath after an orgasm, say a prayer of thanks that you are one of the lucky ones who gets to enjoy the physical side of intimacy.
Sexy time — enjoy it while you can.
