Greta, when my wife wants it, many times its just wrapping her arms around me in bed, or my wrapping her up in mine. This can be very true at 2 AM. So here's to wanting sex, without exertion.

You got it "nailed" on this one Greta. And, I don't believe I've ever read anything like this.

Yes, it's true. Sure, I love the "act" of sex but, more importantly, I love my sexuality. I love how powerful it makes me feel. I love the part it plays in my 12 year marriage. I feel more confident and self-actualized.

Even when we have a dry-spell of activity, the emotional turn-on of knowing the "connection" is always present, has strengthened out marriage. I wish all women could embrace their sexuality this way.

It is something I am trying to pass on to my daughter. I know it will make a difference in her life in general and certainly in her intimate relationships.

Excellent post.

I can relate. As a post menopausal woman I am less interested in sex than I used to be. I wonder, is there something wrong with me? Or is it just the constant barrage of boner commercials, womens talk shows, and lovelorn columns convincing me that something is wrong if I'm not horny all the time?
It takes me a little longer to get warmed up, but once I get going I really get into it. In fact, I have better orgasms than I ever had EVER. What does this all mean? Hell if I know! But I much prefer the less frequent MORE satisfying sex I have now than the constant, crappy hit and run sex I had when I was 30.

Gosh, you sure do have a great way with an idea. Well put and 100% spot[-on! My partner and I have to schedule all the sex we have and we're never, ever, sorry we carved out the time to do that voodoo that we do so well.


You have this way of saying something that we already know but don't ever really take the time to examine closely... and then you transform it into a revelation. I am astounded yet again by your insights. I have linked to your blogs before, and I would do it again with this one, but for the fact that I should probably write some of my own. On behalf of Early to Bed in Chicago... thanks for all you do. :)
