The longer you wait the harder it gets. Literally and figuratively. The expectations rise, as do the sexpectations.
It has been seven days since I produced any fresh new text. And three days since I have produced any fresh new sex. Both of these counts are significantly longer than average.
With each hour that passes I become more tense, and it becomes more difficult to produce anything. Somehow the quickie, usually a low barrier for entry feels insufficient. The post most be meaningful and humorous. The acrobatics in bed numerous. This is tiring. Even to type about. In both areas performance anxiety creeps in where it rarely rears its head.
The solution to both problems is the same.
Forget the intricate weave of insight and intercourse. Let go of lingerie and lyrics. Ignore the verse and vigor. Lower that bar down to the floor.
Step 1. Write a shitty blog post.
Step 2. Have some crummy sex.
It is likely that one of these activities will exceed my expectations. At this point all signs say it will be the sex.
Get write to it. And right on it.

So am I to deduce you are horny and have writer’s block? Turn on the Al Green and head off to one of those “specialty” stores in Colorado. By the end of the day one or maybe both of your issues will be solved :).
Solid advice skipah.
That’s what I’m here for!
Adding wine to the mix can help tremendously!!
Always. Or vodka.
Did you right this for me?
Yes? Probably for lots of us. Let’s channel Nike and just do it.
Good morning! This just cracked me up today! I love how your mind works, GF!
Are you back stateside?
Yup, like Nike says, just do it.
Wait…thats my motto.
Highly relatable… on both counts.
Yes ma’am both activities suffer from procrastination and putting off. Agree, sometimes we just f’n need to do it!
Best post ever! Seriously, the fact that you wrote anything while feeling blocked is tremendous. As for the “sex block” I recommend some Marvin Gaye.
I wonder how many things have been written about writers block to try to solve writer’s block. I am pretty sure this was not my first time.
Lol! Your answer to writer’s block!
EXACTLY. That is enthusiasm not screaming.
Well, I seem to be in a dry spell for both, unfortunately, but I wish YOU all the good 🙂
Lower the bar so low that no one could even limbo under it.
*wrinkles nose* maybe with WRITING…
The blog post was cute. How was the sex?? Inquiring minds…
Fast and furious. 😉
I think that in both cases perhaps the solution to the block is a nap.
A nap is NEVER the wrong idea.
Too funny..made me laugh and so can relate to the sex part…land of famine..ha
Trick is turning it into a feast!
One is called writer’s block…the other? 😉
Sex block… duh…
In both cases, I’d say outsourcing is a possibility.
Wow! The racist comment goes to the yogi!
