I read an article today from a woman who complained that her husband gets pretty grumpy if he goes a few days without having sex. She said that she would be perfectly happy with a romantic rendezvous twice a month.
TWICE. A MONTH?
Where they do that at? (In my ratchet ATL voice)
The rest of the article was saying how men are wired to be sexual and they need it more than we do. I call complete bullshit.
If men are “wired” to want it more than women, who are they “wired” to have sex with? The theory that women don’t want sex as much as men just blows my mind.
This adds to the issue of female sexual repression in our culture. We are sometimes taught to submit to our men, lay there and enjoy it, and give it to him when he wants it. But if a woman has a high sex drive, she’s automatically seen as a whore or a freak. What’s wrong with this?
I, personally, do not enjoy going extended periods of time without sex. Given that my husband is in the military, I sort of have no choice. But when we are together, we rarely let our abstinent streak last more than 2 days, and that’s just when we are tired, sick, or incredibly busy. When we are apart, it can be from a few days to months. THAT is torture, and it shows. Hubs can attest to the fact that after about a week with zero orgasms or without him, I am a complete terror to talk to. I’m mean, I’m grumpy, and I’m whiny. I’m also not a man, disproving that broad’s article stating that men are the only ones allowed to be grumpy and shit if they don’t get laid.
There is nothing wrong with a woman being bitchy without orgasming or without sex. For many people, it’s a stress reliever. It’s a way to connect with your partner/spouse, and it’s one hell of a workout. Ladies, don’t let anyone make you feel bad if you want to have sex more than once a month, like some people find acceptable. If you have a healthy appetite, (healthily) indulge.
That article pissed me off. Sigh.
Ok. Carry on. Rant over.
