i have been having issues that i just can't discuss anywhere because i know it's specific to women my age. isn't there some sort of spike in sexual desire around 40? i swear i've been making bad decisions with men just to keep myself satisfied. i feel like a horny teenage boy. i'm 39. can anyone relate?

    I think most everyone rides that roller coaster. Sometimes we're crazed and sometimes we're 'leave me alone'. I'm at a low ebb right now and I have to say it sure is relaxing. And I get alot more other stuff done. But I'm sure it won't be long until I hear the 'clack clack clack' of the car going up that first hill.

    I think I spiked at 37, but I put in a good 5 years worked up to it. Bad decisions, the works. Now, the last 2 years, I've been so overwhelmed by STUFF, it's the last thing on my mind. Mostly.

    Oh boy, can I relate to that! After 40 is when things really went crazy for me. I didn't even feel that way when I was younger. Now I'm in a quiet time and I'm not sure I like it, plus I'm wondering if those feelings will come back.

    I'm 42 and horny teenage boy describes me perfectly. I haven't been this sex-crazed in well over 10 years. The problem is that I am married, and DH just doesn't do it for me any more. So I am suffering in silence (well, I have my fantasies). I have not made any bad decisions......yet.
