As I’m working today, I’m trying to prioritize things. Which stack of papers needs to be dealt with first. Which stack can wait till tomorrow. And I realized that along with prioritizing things at work, I need to prioritize things at home. We’ve lapsed into a sort of a slump again. With winter coming and the dark commute, it’s easy to be fooled that it’s later than it is. By 8 o’clock I’m thinking it’s time for bed. I need to put playing first again.

This morning, Lion said he woke up hard. Yay! I said we’ll have to see if Mr. Weenie wants to come out and play tonight. Then, as I was thinking about it getting dark early, I had a funny thought. Well, I think it’s funny. Lion may not think so. I was thinking we should play earlier in the evening – sort of an early bird special, which I thought I might tease Lion about because he’s older than I am. Anyway, I thought it was amusing. I could even make up some coupons for early bird specials.

There is really nothing that keeps us from playing earlier. We’ve just developed a rhythm of dinner, tv, play, sleep, rinse and repeat. But, like all rhythms, they can become old quickly. Sometimes you need to spice things up. I’m not talking about adding different play. We’re fairly spicy as it is. I mean playing at 7 instead of 9. Maybe a no-TV night. Maybe a mid-week dungeon visit. Just a change thrown in to keep things more interesting.

Yesterday I felt regular twinges of desire; nothing specific, but interest nonetheless. I realize that tomorrow is my scheduled orgasm date. I suspect I will be up to the challenge. The only question is how enthusiastically I will react. On Sunday, Mark left this comment:

I think you need to lock lion up for a month with no orgasm. maybe some t&d. but he gets to cum too often.

Mrs. Lion indirectly referenced it yesterday in her post. Mark brings up a fairly common misapprehension about enforced chastity. Unless you’ve actually done it, you probably think that the more time spent unable to orgasm, the more desperate the need to cum. Therefore, if waiting a week doesn’t produce the required amount of desire, waiting longer will increase desire. That is absolutely untrue, at least for me. Even with daily teasing, after a point my interest will fade.

It turns out that we males are more sexually complex than we think. Before enforced chastity I always assumed that the longer I go without an orgasm the more I will want one. It didn’t take long once I was locked up for me to find out that all those years I was wrong. As I’ve written before, my desire follows a predictable pattern. My interest in orgasm declines as time goes by. Regular teasing by my lioness keeps the flame alive, but it can’t prevent it from getting down to a flicker eventually.

I also learned that despite the wait times, teasing, and other stuff, my interest can fade for no apparent reason. I’ve always thought it was a biological cycle. I think it might be. What surprised me on Sunday is that this cycle can be interrupted; not by teasing but by another activity that I find very arousing. In my case it was being tied into the sling and then figged. Just thinking about the proceedings made me ready to get hard as soon as Mrs. Lion touched my penis. So, to some degree Mrs. Lion was right. I was bored by our routine. I didn’t realize it, but she did.

The prescription for my loss of interest was a bit of S/M. Kinky lion.
