I just got back from a memorial service for my wife.


I am feeling sad, depressed and horny. I can't discuss this with my friends, for obvious reasons.


So is this weird?


My wife had had a stroke 8 months ago. I sat with her every day. She died 3 months ago. Burial service were 2 months ago.


So is this sexual feeling, part of the grieving?

I think it's a reaffirmation of life. What better way to feel alive than to be sexual. I don't think you're weird at all.

Hi If like me you have been now married for over 40 years and you were the same we have very great memory's of our sex lives, then it would not be weird to fill horny when thinking of the memory's you both had together, either just daily living or your sexual encounters which know doubt there was very many.


Yes, fill horny by all means, I would be just the same, shows that your were truly in love with your wife.


Your the real lover


Good Luck Sir.

volunteer76, your penis is not part of the grieving process. Your sexual feeling is part of your being alive. Your stomach still needs food, and your lungs still need air.

Since all of the above will definitely go away when you're dead, I'd do something about it before that happens.

Breath deep, eat a salad, seek some companionship.

I'm sorry for your loss, but I notice that She died 3 months ago, and you burried her 2 months ago. I'm hoping you got that backwards.
