Libido, and especially the loss of it, is something we all can talk about. But before we go there, let’s look at the posts that were linked for prompt #5.

Hot flash!

In July there were two of my own posts, and a wonderful post by Feve. I just love her writing style!

Like, there is the creaky bones and throw-your-back-out-without-even-trying thing. And there is the soreness and tiredness thing. The Why did all the fat in my body just migrate to my belly? thing and the totally-exhausted-because-I-woke-up-today-and-THAT-was-a-lot-of-work thing are sort of just… always-present givens. And nevermind the hairy chin and wrinkles and swollen feet (!! — the fuck?!) and age spots and all that good stuff.

This month’s prompt

When we are very active in our sex lives, we all think it’s going to last forever, and then we go into menopause, and gradually our desire for sex dwindles. This loss of libido generally happens because of decreased hormone levels, and this happens in both men and women.

Some women accept this as part of the process, while others prefer to do something about it, to at least have some kind of desire for sex. What are your experiences with this? We would also love to hear from those who are partners of people in menopause!

We would also love to hear from the gentlemen who experience loss of libido because of decreased hormone levels.

  1. Men also have menopause. The symptoms and experiences are similar to those of women. The question is, is it good for such women and men to find each other?

We'd like to hear your thoughts...
