You've been there, right? The dreaded dry spell? Yeah, I know you have, because they happen to everyone. You know you can get stir crazy while in the midst of a dry spell, but what really happens to your brain when you haven't had sex in a while? Whether you're taking some time off from sex because you've just gone through a breakup or it's less of a choice and more of a plight, you're not alone. There's someone who's been where you are, and someone who will be where you are soon enough.
Occasionally, you'll find yourself salivating over the guy who's been your neighbor for years. Or maybe you find yourself wondering if your standards have lowered over the course of your sexless time. You've heard all the benefits of having sex, but what happens when you're not having it? Can you survive? (I'm being dramatic. Yes, you can survive without sex.) Once you get over the "hump" (or lack thereof), do you think about it less? Do you find yourself in need of expressing yourself through other outlets? Will your hand permanently get stuck in a cramped position? It's time to take a look at what happens to your precious mind while you're suffering through a dry spell.
