Most of us don’t think there’s anything like having too much sex. The young mother of six with number seven on the way and a husband planning the eight one already would tell you otherwise. However, becoming fixated on sex is easier than you think and it happens to even the most chaste of us often enough. But there is something like too much of a good thing and too much of sex too isn’t good for you. Here are the top four signs showing that you’re fixated on sex and seriously need a sex detox.
1. You think about sex all the time
Whether single or in a relationship, if you catch yourself thinking about sex all the time, you need to either a) get laid and get it over with, or b) go into sex detox. While a healthy libido is necessary for mental peace, having sex on your mind all the time can affect your work and judgment in social situations seriously.
2. Everything begins to seem like a metaphor for sex to you
When you’re becoming fixated on sex, you literally begin to see it everywhere. Intertwined blooms would appear to be making out to you, motorbike suspensions begin to seem like a symbol for the deed and even stirring sauce in a pot somehow starts to feel like a metaphor for sex to you. However, you need to realize that sometimes, blooms are just blooms, a motorbike suspension is just a machine and that a pot of sauce cannot be sexually attracted to the spatula in any way. If you’re “seeing” symbols for sex everywhere, you’re a prime candidate for sex detox.
3. You’re turned on all the time but your orgasms aren’t nearly as satisfying
Imagine having your favorite cake for lunch each day. You know you’d still want to have it everyday but you also know that having it all the time won’t make it taste special and exciting after a while. Our brain processes sexual excitement the same way. When you’re fixated on sex all the time, you’re mildly turned on almost all the time which doesn’t make the actual act and/or orgasm feel too much different that how you feel all the time. So if you feel you’re turned on all the time but your climaxes aren’t nearly as satisfying as they should be, you should consider a sex detox to bring the spark back.
4. You have the routine perfected but it doesn’t excite you too much
If you are blessed with a partner who is as fixated on sex as you are, we envy you. But we also know that people who have too much sex (no really, too much sex is really a bad thing) tend to fall into monotonous routines and tend to stick to a few “best working” moves after a while. Even though this perfected routine appears to work all the time, it doesn’t please you as much as it once did. And this, my friend, is one of the top signs that you should abstain for a few weeks to get your mojo back.
