I was reading one of those “Ten Ways to Spice Up Your Sex Life” articles this morning. Of course, there was nothing spicy about it, even if you compare it to a vanilla sex life. Compared to our sex life it was as spicy as tap water. Anyway, one of the suggestions was for the woman to initiate. It claimed that 80% of women do not initiate. I always wonder where they get their numbers from. But I guess it falls in line with the stereotypical male complaints that their wives either always have a headache or they just lay there. This is definitely not the case in our marriage.
The period of time when sex all but stopped was because I stopped initiating. Lion did attempt to initiate some months back, but I would usually decline. That wasn’t good for his ego. With my libido not cooperating, he never stood a chance. We came up with the idea to assign me orgasm dates. It’s not the spontaneity I’d like but it’s a step in the right direction.
What I need to discover now is what will spice up my sex life. I know it’s not initiating. I know it’s not the same things that spice up Lion’s sex life. (By calling them separate sex lives I am merely delineating between what turns him on and what turns me on. I am not suggesting we go have separate sex lives.) I need to find that thing that makes me tree-humping horny. Actually I’m looking for the thing that makes me Lion-humping horny.
