Whether you're on strike, not in the mood, or you keep swiping left, sometimes you're just not getting it on. Maybe that's OK with you, or maybe you're pulling your hair out. Regardless, there are physical things that happen to your body when you haven't had sex in a while. Some of them are cool, and some of them reasons to swipe right stat.
But never underestimate the mind-body connection, or so says my yoga teacher. If you're not feeling horny, listen to your body. I don't know what it's trying to tell you, but I bet it's worth finding out. On the other hand, if you totally want to bone and it's not happening for you, well, maybe the scent of desperation is, like, a real aroma. Either way, your mind can get in the way of your sex life, especially if you overanalyze why you are or are not getting laid. If I need to convince you to get freaky, maybe there is something going on with you that you want to explore with a therapist. Or maybe it's just a passing phase of being a sexual being and you have a really compelling Netflix cue. Nevertheless, it's worth noting some of the things that can happen to your body in periods of abstinence.
