What may seem like a need for sex may actually be a need for affirmation, intimacy, connection, love, creative expression, feeling useful, etc. And each of those needs can be met in other ways, such as hugging, dancing, painting, helping others, etc.
Look closely at what needs are really asking to be met, and then look at all the ways they can be met, rather than limiting or attaching yourself to one remedy or one person.
We sometimes become obsessed with a desire for one person who doesn’t requite our feelings. The ego wants to want more than it wants to have, but that kind of fixation is insane. Look around you. Be grateful for what you have, and make the most of what is available to you.
It may be a genuine need for sexual activity which can also be honoured, but I find it good to know the difference and to have more than one avenue for sexual expression. Have you ever tried dancing your sexuality? It’s so good!
