    Enough Sex Already
    An_254960 posted:
    This society is so rampant about sex, sex, sex, and I think it is sick. We as a society are not able to stop. Well, I believe Menopause is natures way of saying enough. No female Viagra no pills - enough. Is there anyone out there that agrees with me?

    The idiot male Dr.s are pushing pills, lubes you name it.

    Don't get me wrong - I'm not nun -the 20's-30's were a good time. I am still married but Not Interested - Thanks.

    I would rather work, go shopping or swimming or almost anything. Anyone out there agree?

    Sorry joni60 , I am in my late 50's, post menopausal and I still like sex and don't want to be without it. I had my struggles with vaginal dryness but once that was conquered (Estrace Cream and FemRing) I am good to go. My libido is not what it was in my twenties and thirties but it still keeps me enjoying sex a couple times a week.
