Your Season of Sex
« on: February 23, 2018, 06:44:47 am »
Does anyone else get randy the second a warm breeze blows? Or are you a cuddle-up in wintertime type?

I was reminded that I'm the former by our spectacularly unseasonably warm day on Wednesday here in the eastern U.S. Particularly when the warm weather arrives after winter--late April, May, early June--I get crazy exuberant, and that includes my libido. Maybe it's that my eyeballs are suddenly re-exposed to scantily clad, attractive flesh...maybe it's the sensation of breezes and sun against my skin after months of being bundled...making it's echoing the Earth's flowering and nest-building single-mindedness...but my sex drive definitely spikes. And it stays high throughout the summer, perhaps because I'm outdoors and more physically active, with my senses very engaged.

In winter, by comparison, I'm in a low-grade funk of a mental state. My desire doesn't disappear, but it recedes to a lower level of consciousness.

Do others experience seasonal shifts of sex drive? If so, what's the pattern, and what do you think is the cause?

The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

Yeah, definitely. Similar to you, I'm much less "interested" in the winter when it's cold and my body just isn't in the mood, but I start coming back to life in warmer weather. Seeing the hot bods in less clothing is part of it, but also I think the warm weather and increased sunshine spikes my hormones lol.

My body is of the uterine persuasion, so my sex drive usually shifts on a monthly basis, rather than annually. The effect is less than from environmental factors like fatigue, though.

For me it's the fall (my favorite time of the year) and the spring.  Winter is too freaking cold to take my clothes off and in the summer it's too muggy to do anything.  I mean...this is the South afterall.  Do I still do the dirty tango during these months?  Of course I do.  But it's greatly reduced.  Say 2-3 times a month.  But during the spring/fall it might 2-3 times a day if I can...

I'm more of the "when I have the bloody energy for sexy time, I'll do it" type. As a teacher who still cares about his students' well-being and making sure they succeed (all 150 of them), and dealing with my husband's mental health issues, and my other responsibilities, I find that I'm more often fatigued and because of that, I just can't do it. I'll cuddle like no other, but mentally I'm not there. (Side note: I've had my testosterone levels checked... and they're at a teenager's level - so yes, it's the mental/energy aspect).

However, I will also say that there are times during the day - mainly dawn and dusk - when my sex drive revs out of the blue and my brain is basically saying to my body "Dude - WTF? It's not the right time for sex" and body will still respond with no cares to the world.
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”
