Why your sex drive is in the gutter during Covid-19...
So it's been a heck of a long time since this whole Covid-19/ social distancing thing began.
At first we all took it lightly, didn't we?
We joked about it, took it with a shrug and we could not phantom that we would find ourselves, 3 months later, still in lock down.
Some of you have lost your jobs, some have been stuck working from.
Others are learning to home school multiple children, Keeping house, disinfecting house daily and added 2 hours to their normal grocery shopping run because, well everything needs to be cleaned!
That's not to mention keeping up with the ever changing advisories, death and recovery rates
Wrapping our brains around the ever shifting uncertainty that we are faced with and learning to "flow" with it, isn't always as easy...
All the while trying to fake some sort of normalcy and continue to maintain healthy body, mind and relationships
If all of this sounds like a shit load of heavy set expectations
And you're saying "listen, TickleTrunkClub, this shit is crazy and hard. When you write it all out, it does seem like a lot"
Well, folks. It is. A LOT.
So, your libido took a hit...
Maybe you kinda, wanna, still feel the want and desire to enjoy some coitus...
But your so fuck'n tired.
You feel bad for not putting out for the sake of your partner
You don't even know why it's gone... try rereading the above mention of all the shit...
Don't get us wrong. We are the first to boast all of the advantages that a good old romp can do for you mentally and emotionally.
Because it's true; sex and even better yet an orgasm can get you the feel good juices flooding you like Niagara Falls.
But this whole Covid-19 thing
It's different. It's been an abrupt cessation to life as we knew it.
When you see your partner with expecting eyes and you're at the point of just "doing it"...
It's time to pause.
Tell your partner where you are at mentally and what you feel you need to do.
Communication is vital! Remember
So please hear us; if your sex drive is currently fleeting.
We suggest that if the thought of just exerting yourself any more makes the fantasy of being run over by a John Deere tractor seem more appealing; then don't even think about sex!
