    Libido

    When I was discharged from the hospital I was told I had to wait two weeks before imbibing in pleasures of the flesh. I knew this would not be a problem since I had just had my guts rearranged and felt pretty crappy overall. To be honest, I can't even remember how long it was before I even had an interest (maybe a month?).

    Mr. Sign's discharge orders stated that he could have sex whenever he felt he was able. (Did I mention that he's one half Sicilian? In 19 years together, I cannot remember a time when he wasn't willing and able.) Of course he was mad because he said if he had known, he would have made it happen right there in the hospital.



    I pose this question to you:

    What's the longest you have gone without having sex?

    Don't be shy. Let me know. I'll tell you that there was a time when Mr. Sign and I went 5 months (my choice, not his).

    I know what you meant, I just wanted to be FIRST!

    I love my wife but....
    Money problems= stress
    2 teens in the house= stress
    Menapause= beaucoup stress
    Health Problems= stress
    Dying parent=stress
    Wifes high pressure job= stress
    Stress= No Sex!!

    All this crap occured several years back, thank God we survived the deluge..18 lonely months!

    Since then we have both lost weight, and have an emptier house, and learned how to cope with our differences...And that equals more intimacy, you'll see.

    DON'T freak out about this! If your readers are completely honest, and are over 40, you won't feel all alone.
    Unless of course your readers are a bunch of sex-crazed maniacs, then you'll feel like shit.

    Much Love....G

    I met Pj (my wife) January 20 1990. I had made a vow to have no sex with any woman again unless I was married to her. We married on July 7 1990 and enjoyed it that night. So there you go. Since I bagan having sex at an early age, that was the longest without...5+ LONG months. Now, its about 3-4 times a week. (your next question).

    Oh, I'm 43 and Pj is 41. Our house is busy, our dads have died recently and we do have stress. Sex is the only thing only I can do with her, or her with me. I can go for supper with you, dancing etc. but no sex. We see it as kind of a beautiful cement that holds us together.

    weeks? months?

    try years.

    okay, when i was married, i think the longest we went without was close to a year. considering that he's gay, that makes sense. now.

    in my single life, my longest dry spell was 5 years. FIVE YEARS.

    and soon, i'll be marking a year since my last romp.

    pathetic.

    ~~Rae~~ said...

    5 years didn't really miss it that much I was single and liked being that way and while in a relationship a week

    DZER said...

    hmmm ... what year is it again?

    The Savage said...

    so far it's been since late october 2003

    SignGurl said...

    I guess I need to clarify. Mr. Sign and I are not in a dry spell now. In the past, as Galen mentiioned, stress + death + kids + hormones= NO SEX. That was several years ago.

    Keep in mind that I met Mr. Sign when I was 18 and have been married since I was 20. I've been with him more than half my life.

    I'm really diggin' the fact that you are all being honest. Keep it up!

    Well, not by choice. Being in the Navy there was a forced celibacy and a forced not seeing you family too. 6 months, (3 different times)

    BTExpress said...

    littlefeet said...

    peace...

    MamaKBear said...

    Hmmm....personally gone without sex? Maybe a few months or so. But since married? Two weeks at the most.

    Once post-op for a surgery. I thought I would die...and only waited two weeks. My surgeon laughed at me after poking around to make sure I hadn't damaged anything.

    Once post-partum: My episiotomy was ouchie bad. I waited the whole six weeks for penetration...but not for OTHER things.

    In a relationship - almost 3 weeks due to some *ahem* personal medical type stuff. Ok, bad y.i. Sorry if I grossed anyone out.

    That is why I sit at the computer naked, so I have something to keep my free hand busy while I'm typing...
