Sometimes you just want to rip your significant other's clothes off. Other times, not so much. Face it, you're ocassionaly not down to get down. There are plenty of times it's OK not to be in the mood for sex. When researching this topic on the Internet, I found a deluge of articles offering women advice on how to turn their partners away politely. Although I agree being told, "Sorry, boo, I've got a headache" isn't music to the ears, it's not a crisis either. An article on the Daily Mail offering readers tips on getting your mojo back suggested, "If you don't want intercourse, what about oral sex?" Um, maybe I'm a bit lazy, but oral is even more work, people. Honestly, I don't think there has to be a whole to-do about saying, "Thank you, but no thank you."
And my research confirms my theory. Tons of women don't think it's a big deal to turn down a lover. Everyone feels like taking a break from sex occasionally. This is totally normal. It does not, I repeat, not mean you're not a sexual being or you've lost your desire forever. All it means is you're not in the mood. Case closed. But just in case you need convincing, here are 11 times, as told to me by my squad, that it's just fine to not want it.
