I have to override my mood and just do it. Once things gets started again, I'm back to craving it.
Now no sex and no masterbation - I just get down right grumpy, bitchy and irritable. It's as if orgasams keep my brain chemicals balanced. Too bad it took me so long to realize this.
Agreed although there are times when I MUST have it, usually those times are leading up to my monthlies.
For the most part though I don't have to have it. It's great when it's there but my toys see more action with me than either of my partners do due to low libido, ED, & other factors.
