So, you know how in all those “Spice up your Love Life” articles in women’s magazines, they tell you to just have a “make-out” night, where it doesn’t lead to sex? I previously posted about one Sunday make-out session that James and I had that I really enjoyed, and yesterday I found out that he did not, in fact, find it quite as enjoyable. He enjoyed the making out part, however, when it was cut off by the whole not having sex part, he was only frustrated. So, my conclusion is that all those articles lie and just tell the women what they want to hear. Because if these prescriptions for mere make-out situations were written by men, they would, in fact, not recommend that at all. They would probably suggest something porn-related instead.
I feel like I don’t miss the sex as much as I should.
And by the way, we’re not doing anything involving genitals at all. Therefore, the man in this household is feeling neglected and pent up and God knows what else. Don’t get me wrong, I love sex. And I do miss it, as reading some previous posts here shows. However, I don’t seem to miss it as much as I thought I would. Some days, I’m just glad that I don’t have to make an excuse as to why I don’t want to do it. Other days, I’m glad that I don’t have to initiate things when he might not be in the mood. Sometimes, sex is a lot to think about. Before we got into this whole abstinence thing, I sometimes felt a little routine when it came to the sexual part of our relationship. So I really do think that taking this time off will serve to remind us how important and amazing our sex life can really be. We’re both starting to realize that already, and I know that the wedding night will be explosive. Not to mention the honeymoon.
