intellectual

My sex drive has definitely decreased. It might be the heat, the birth control pills, just a shift in focus? Before, I had been researching sex blogs a lot, and I don't know if the researching was filling me with lust, or the lust was driving me to research. At any rate, things have died down, and we're more like every-other-day. Which is fine.

There's a quote I've always liked:

An intellectual is a person who has discovered something more interesting than sex.
--Aldous Huxley

Is that quote offensive? Definitely provocative. Definitely simplistic.

I always thought of myself as intellectual--someone who liked reading more than TV, got some education.... Then, when I developed a libido again, I felt deep in my bones that nothing is more important than sex, nothing could be, and my entire life existed for fucking my husband.

Now that I'm calmer again, I see things with more detachment--I feel more moderate. But one day maybe things will shift again.

My libido always perks up during placebo week. I love placebo week. It almost makes up for not ovulating. (Am I the only one who will jump almost anyone when I'm ovulating?)

That's what nature wants you to do! (Jump people when you're ovulating.) So you will give birth to more nature!
