Love is an ice cream sundae, with all the marvelous coverings. Sex is the cherry on top. Jimmy Dean
The wonder and joy of sex! Ahhhh, sexual revolution… I am not so sure there was anything new to reveal? Or maybe there is?
Nonetheless discovering sex and one’s sexuality can be bliss. Like a new toy at Christmas what a blast.
Then suddenly responsibility comes along with this new toy. Responsibility to yourself and to your partner. Ah, like having a baby where are the instructions? Then comes getting pregnant the direct result of sex. So more responsibilities and commitment indirectly and directly related to sex. Oh and the transferred unwelcomed disease that can occur. What happened to the Christmas gift, the joy, the fun, the freedom?
Never mind that, our sexuality continues to change as we age. After we are past baby-making years’ sexuality can decline at a rapid rate continuing to betray you. You still want to feel all the joy and fun in your youth, after all the kids you had due to sex are grown and out of the house this should be playtime. Not so fast says your body.
This can feel altogether unfair. I mean sex can be the climax, pun intended, of romance novels and love stories. How about real life and a love that has been around for decades? You know what to expect, and the thrill may have had to shifted to the familiar. Not all bad, with love and motivation no matter what our relationship status is with some effort sex can be a healthy happy part of our existence for many years.
If this all sounds like I have set off a sex-bomb blowing apart all of the joy, alas there is good news! Natural hormone replacement therapy has come a long way. Getting bioidentical hormones back in your body can reset your sexuality and your health. Signaling your body to be strong more vibrant, reawakening the sexuality you once knew. This may or may not be significant to you, but if you have a partner, is it significant to them?
Being able to lovingly couple is what romance is made of. Knowing everyone is different in their desires and needs. However, aging process affects us all. Changes occur, then choices are made. The onset of Viagra kept men on the playground years after they would have tucked it away. Now with hormone replacement therapy we can all enjoy the science that is offered. If in fact that Christmas toy you once knew you would like to remain a part of who you now have become.
Is it time to pack up the Christmas boxes, or keep them out and play?
My Mantra: “I am blessed to have new information with my own sacred sexuality”
