It was as an afterthought that I added the question mark. Most of my better thoughts are afterthoughts. It was initially to be a statement. My perspective. But I’ve realised that in reality, rather than accept the title statement as a course of fact, I’d rather question it. I suppose I’m hoping for some grain of hope that might suggest that the premise is not always true.
I’m talking here about sex drive. I’ve not had sex now for a very long time, either with another member of my species or just with myself and quite frankly, to quote one of our more outspoken national heroins “Does my face look bothered?”
The facts are simple. I’ve lost my sex-drive. I’m no longer interested in the prospect of sex. And this i suspect, potentially, has consequences.
I started by Googling the phrase “Use it or lose it”. Googling anything these days will often take you on tangents that you weren’t expecting and so i wasted a good hour reading about losing my brain, my erections, my freedom of speech and my blog!! Finally after a bit of tweaking i settled on the search “+’sex drive’ +’use it or lose it'”. And surprise surprise nearly all of the returned items were focusing on women. (And now I’ve just realised that way off in the future, anyone Googling “Cilla Surprise Surprise” might end up here! I do apologise).
Of course, to be fair, no-body’s missing out here. I was never any good at ‘it’ anyway. For some reasons my ‘come to bed’ technique was never that successful. Whenever i asked a woman if i could stick my winkle in her and wiggle it about a bit until it spat, my kind offer was nearly always declined. Lesbians?
But anyway, now the urge is gone. There’s no interest. Which leaves me feeling a little sad. I guess that’s all a part of growing old.
