An Acceptable Amount of Boom Boom

I would like to pose a question to those who are lucky enough to have found my blog. What is the acceptable amount of sexual activity an individual may engage in daily without people raising their eyebrows and questioning that person’s mental health?

I have heard the saying, “Men think about sex every six seconds.” So what is to be said of the WOMAN who thinks of sex every six seconds? (That would be me, if you all haven’t already figured that out.) And yes, I realize that men are barbaric creatures who are led by their penises, (Sorry, men. From what I’ve experienced, it’s true.) but when my Rockstar seems to think I have a problem because I want to jump his bones at regular intervals, it makes me wonder…

I believe the word “nymphomaniac” is thrown around quite loosely.

The World Dictionary’s definition of a nymphomaniac is as follows: a neurotic condition in women in which the symptoms are a compulsion to have sexual intercourse with as many men as possible and an inability to have lasting relationships with them. I am proud to say that I am not one of the women who suffer from this neurotic condition, although I very easily could slip into these behaviors if I was un-attatched.

Perhaps it is the fact that I went through a dry spell of 9 months during the last year of my marriage that made me the nooky-starved woman that I am today. Or perhaps it is just that the wondrous sex I have with my Rockstar (he would be so happy to see me mentioning it in such a light) is just too good to pass up when there is time in which to do It. I tend to lean toward the latter.

From what I’ve heard, the naked fun time seems to dwindle in a relationship once the relationship has aged a bit. That was certainly true of my marriage. However, I intend that to NOT be happening in my current relationship. Ever. I realize that sex is not the main thing any  coupling should be built on, but to quote Marilyn Monroe- “You wouldn’t marry a girl just because she’s pretty, but, my goodness! Doesn’t it help?”

So, yes, I will cease my babbling now, as I realize this is not the moment of my finest writing, but all I have to say is, I will never turn down sex because “I have a headache.”

P.S. I don’t understand how my Rockstar can go for 4 days without it, but then turn around and ravage me three times in one day….

  2. My Love may not think about sex every six seconds, but after 24 years together she still seems to think it’s a great idea whenever I bring it up, so that works for me. All the same, I think that less frequent sex with greater intensity is better than lots of sex that is less intense, so I’ll take quality over quantity.

    We both seem happy with at least once or twice a week, with relaxing and work free weekends being prime time for us. Fatigue and stress means less sex for us, and vacations mean we can’t get enough of each other.

  3. Hmm…wonder how your Rockstar would react if you took to some solo action whenever he turned you down? Worked wonders for me. Ha.

  4. Macgyver and I have been married for well over a decade and have a slew of kids. With that said, we still look at each other like lions on the hunt and several times a week the hunt is a success.
    This is my 2nd marriage and after the 1st, I was determined to sexually express how I feel. Which meant no more counting holes or cracks in the ceiling. However, the 2nd husband is a more filling man buffet 😉 I will confess to the fact that every 6 seconds is a wee bit too much for me. Standing firm at a every 10 seconds though.

  5. I guess whatever floats your boat, go for it (again and again and again).

    As I get older, mines (sex drive) seems to be slowing down 😦

  6. There is no such thing as too much sex my friend!! 😉 ahaha

    you sound like you have a healthy sex drive – I say enjoy it!

    Personally, I think a woman that thinks of sex every six seconds is a godsend. As to why the sex wanes as a relationship goes on… it is simple… either the man or the woman become complacent. Real life begins to interfere and so do general worries and concerns. It is not unheard of for a woman’s sex drive to outpace a man’s though. After all, the recovery time for a woman is obviously quicker than that of a spent man. Also, it could be simply about control. Some men want to know that they are the pursuers and not the one being pursued. When a strong willed woman with a high sex drive enters their life, they don’t know how to react.

    But that is just my two cents worth. Personally, I do think about sex at least every 6 seconds. I only wish I could act on it that much. 😉

  9. And the good news is your sex drive will get stronger as you get older! There are as many acceptable levels of sexual activity as there are people. I tend to lean towards the more is better side, after all, sex is good for you and it feels so good.

  10. huh.. I would think your Rockstar would be thanking his lucky stars, but then again I have met a man or two who was outpaced by my sex drive. Would love to hear some more men weigh in with comments. Have you asked him what the problem is?

    • Yes, that is what I was thinking. I believe he only finds it a problem because he’s older than me and hasn’t the energy to keep up. I asked him how did he expect to handle it if I decided to bring a girl home for us?

  11. I refer to a woman who thinks about sex every six seconds as “interesting”. I’m all for equality, though it’s WAYYYYYYY easier for a woman to have sex than a man. I think a woman CAN be a whore, but just liking sex a lot and having a lot of partners doesn’t qualify in and of itself. I am also sounding like a lecturing drunk. So there. And….. Scene!


    I think sex is great! I particularly enjoy the one in the Spring.
