Friends, yesterday 2 events conspired to tempt me into giving up my sensual celibacy vow. The current issue of Prevention magazine has an article about the health benefits of regular sex. Specifically, a natural Oxicotyn is released into the system that, well, makes you feel good.
Now that my Estrogen tank is running on near empty, I got to thinking about how nice it would be to have some Oxicotyn (the natural variety) flowing through my veins.
I thought, Maybe it's time to give up sensual celibacy?
Later that evening, I went to the grocery store, and who did I see but the finest man I've laid eyes on in a looong time. Absolutely gorgeous.
I promptly called my sister and told her I'd had it with sensual celibacy. I mean, enough was enough.
In the book I talk about the need for a support team to help when the no-sex times get tough. Thank God I called the right person. She told me to read my blog. Ha!
I'm better today, but yesterday's experience taught me to stay humble. Over time it does get easier, but we're not made of stone. Sometimes you've got to take things one day at a time.
