I've gotten a few emails lately from men stopped having sex entirely.
I'm talking about men, in long term relationships, who sleep right next to a warm bodied woman, every single night of the week,
Can't seem to muster up the energy or motivation to reach out and initiate sex with that woman.
This is a very bad situation in my opinion.
Sex and the desire to have sex, are both hormonally driven activities.
When you stop thinking about it, wanting it, or pursuing it, you can count on the fact that you've taken a hormonal hit.
Or to be more specific, you've lost most of your testosterone, and have struck the estrogen mother-load....
You've entered the feminine zone...and now testicular atrophy, weak erections, and decreased quality of life are all frequent visitors in your home.
If any of this sounds even remotely familiar, you need to remember something very important.
Sex and masculinity are traveling buddies...they hang out together, and when one disappears, the other automatically suffers.
But it goes well beyond this...
Fail to engage in regular sexual activity, and your health, and overall quality of life will suffer as well.
Need some examples?
As you can see, once you stop having sex, health and vitality begin to decline.
And just as important, you lose out on the hormonal workout that regular sexual activity brings on.
Yup, when it comes to sex, the age old axiom most definitely applies...
Use it or lose it!
One of your primary goals as a man should be to hang on to your sex drive, until they bury you deep in the ground for good.
Because once the desire is gone, trust me, the party is just about over.
If you need proof of this fact, visit a local retirement home sometime, and have a look at a few of the hapless male occupants.
Old, tired, and and walking that very fine line between life and death.
Ask around, and you'll find that many of these "old men" haven't even exited their 60's yet.
And the decline all these men experienced most likely started in the exact same location.
Right in the bedroom, next to a warm body...
