Biology v. Sex Drive

I’ve noticed something over the last several years. Ever since I have been off of hormonal birth control, my sex drive seems to correlate directly to where I am in my monthly cycle. In the weeks preceding my fertile time, it rises gradually. I am at my most utterly depraved and desperate right when I am most fertile. Then afterwards? Meh. I mean, I still want it, but not with the same intensity, you know?

From a biological standpoint, this makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? Procreation of the species and all… We want it most when we can actually conceive.

For those of us that do NOT want to expand the human race right now, at all, or ever again, though, it can pose quite the conundrum. I want it bad. Right now. But, I absolutely, unequivocally do NOT want to get pregnant!!! Fucking Mother Nature… She sure can ruin a girl’s good time…

I've noticed the same thing in my wife--but we did want kids, so it was a good thing then. But you brought up another interesting point, and that is that when you are on the patch, you do lose interest. My sweetheart does. She is in her very late forties, and it isn't the time to add to the clan, but I sure do notice about thirty days after she's off. I went away for quite some time to the Philippines, and so she went off the patch. Thirty days later she's writing the steamiest letters, asking for me to come home, and otherwise very needy. She went back on just before I came home, but she was still very interested! We enjoyed those days, but soon she was back to a lack of interest. If women don't think hormones have an effect on their sexual interest, they are wrong. For some reason we have no problem as a society blaming male agressiveness on testosterone, but it seems "tacky" to suggest than women's responsiveness is hormonal. It is, like it or not. It takes less than a drop of testosterone to determine that a developing fetus is a boy or a girl. Same drop of testosterone brings on puberty. Same drop creates a man's drive. Why would women be any different?

It doesn't help us much either.

And try hitting your sexual prime at 17-18yrs of age while women are still trying for the most part to be good girls. Least they were when I was growing up.

Hello, and welcome to AdultFriendFinder blogs.

You have urges at peak time? I am sure that is true of all women who still have that monthly cycle. Menstruation is nature's way of letting a woman know she is ready to procreate.

But, does that really matter? Lots of women want to have sex, but not quite as many want to have kids. Those of you who want sex without having kids need to use some sort of protection or birth control. Sex can be great. But who wants to constantly worry if the protection really worked?

I think it stinks that nature makes women the horniest at that time of the month. Women would probably be much happier if their sex drive did not go up and down all the time. Then they would want sex every day and thoroughly enjoy it.

Maybe I'm the anomolly here. but find that this isn't true for me and never has been. My most depraved time is one week before and up to the start of my cycle.

On the other hand, for a girl who wants to conceive, she gets to have her cake and... eat it, too. *winking*
A warm welcome to blogging, fieldsofdaisy. *smiling*

Are you sure you want the testosterone fueled libido? Two settings, honey, now, and RIGHT NOW!

Some times a guy wants to contemplate and that throbbing gets in the way of such things.
