Whether you're celibate out of choice or simply haven't found the partner you deserve yet, there are some things that happen when you stop having sex, and they aren't necessarily what you think. I know, you're expecting to catch up on all of your Netflix shows and have a rock-hard bod from all those hours you're logging in the gym. Although those things may be true, there are some other changes you can't necessarily control.
But hey, not having sex isn't a bad thing. Keep that in mind! You should be sex-positive which means not thinking of sex as some kind of measuring stick. It doesn't matter if you're having it all the time or not having it all, all that matters is you're happy and comfortable. And if you're not happy with your involuntary abstinence, have no fear. You know it's not going to last forever and that the day will come when you haven't actually watched anything on Netflix because you and your partner are skipping straight to the chill part.
While you're in your dry spell, however, here are 11 things that may be happening to you. Trust me, some of them may sound rough, but you're going to be totally fine. And don't listen to Drop Dead Fred ― there's no cobwebs growing down there.
