Where did my sex drive go!?? (men please reply)
And that speaks volumes. ;)
Hi ho, Pixx,
I was just so disappointed you seemed to miss the joke! It'll now be a dead joke, but I will have to explain it.
You see, this is a site where lots of people are interested in Holistic health. Holism has been a thought that was developped moreso in Europe by the experimental science of Claude Bernard. He did lots of vivisection and realized that the body is an autonomous organism, not an ensemble of distinct, seperate parts. Ex. you cannot just remove the liver to "fix" it without killing the body because of it's harmonic property.
This was opposed to the thinking of the times where men considered the body a machine and the spirit/mind distinctly seperate (Descartes, yo). Seems to be the current thought in the medical field as well! We all know that.
The punchline : Kevin, someone interested in holistic health, is ironicallhy treating his penis as if it is a distinct and seperate part of his body, and he can simply relieve arousal by (and I quote) "jerking off". As if in this one area, holism has nothing to do with his body or mind. As if he will some how be satisfied rather than extremely frustrated at the fact that while sex requires visual, tactile, emotional stimuli...and hey! The presence of another person!!!! lol!!!!!! no, lo, he is just taking it like some doctor that would put antibiotics down your gullet for acne.
I was rolling on the ground laughing. And I thought it was a pretty damn good joke. Sorry you missed it.
Obviously, my comment was lost on you, m'dear, but I feel no need to explain it.
I would like to apologize to Constantin, and all others following this thread, for my part in this digression.
No worries...it happens.
From other people I've spoken to, I'm going to stay raw. I was very tempted to eat some eggs because of this issue, but I think I'll just wait to get some maca and keep it going. The more I think about it, I may have had this issue BEFORE i even went raw and the raw diet could fix it. I'm very close to 100% right now and did a water fast today, so I should be detoxing at a pretty quick pace.
As a sidenote, acne i've had since 14 (i'm 21 now) is clearing up. also i do pullups on my doorjam and could only do up to 3 before. just now i tried some and did atleast 8 (i stopped counting out of shock). it's awesome. my six pack is as cut as ever and I'm loosing my chubby cheeks. I always wondered how the weight loss thing would go for me because i don't have much to lose without looking like a bag of bones but I must say I'm VERY pleased so far.
Glad to hear that some aspects are going well! You seem to have a pretty good attitude about it all, and that is always helpful!
you can do this quiet easy with no meat actually. the big thing you need in your diet is raw almonds. its as simple as that im 20 i noticed i was getting sluggish in this area as well a friend of mine suggested almonds and it works quite well. so hang in there a big thing with this is often your body freaks out to a change in diet your mainly detoxing here for what ever reason this is the first area effected my detox but almonds work very well
thanks to pixx.
pixx quietly nods in the direction of those who offered appreciation. Sorry if it seemed I had ignored the earlier one.
If you eat lots of avocados and oranges together, they're an aphrodisiac. They have a cumulative effect so its best to eat lots every day for several days. A man tested this when he was working in the kitchen of a Bhuddist monastary. The monks had all taken vows of celibacy. His experiment caused them to become very touchy feely and flirty with the female guests, then they started talking dirty, then finally one of them broke his vow by spending the night with one of the women.
I would also recommend drinking more, as fluid will improve blood flow.
I also recommend maca. I have to watch how much i take b/c while i feel great taking it, i will want to make friends with the doorknob.
Also try adding in green juices (green fruit or green veggie juices). You may even want to do a full or short term juice feast. I did the full 92 day one and my sex drive was out of control. I started dating two guys at once (no, they didn't know about each other) simply b/c having just one guy couldn't keep up with me. good times!! But even short term juicing will boost my sex drive. Your can smell more, taste better and are more perceptive to touch. Give it a go!
Buy a big, grass-fed, free-range, organic slab of meat from your local food co-op, put about a tablespoon of coconut oil in a pan on medium-high heat, and sear the meat on all sides for under a minute, just to kill the surface bugs, then chow down. You can wash it down with some unpasteurized milk. Call me in the morning.
Oh, dude, if you're gonna eat raw meat at least cut it all thin like carpaccio and soak it in lemon juice all night. That seems more civilized.
After I broke up with my last boyfriend, my libido fled. I've got a new boyfriend that makes me horny as hell.
I would reccomend two things:
1.Although you may not find as many women attractive or appealing at this point, if you find someone
that turns your crank, go after her and who knows she might be the next girl turning you on.
2. Go for a lifestyle change ( masturbate more, eat maca, nuts and seeds, or rev yourself up with exercise)
If all else fails what you have is a mental block (cock block XD ). Perhaps you need to write down whats
really bothering you right now , so you can move on and get back to making with the luvin.
Oh and one more thing. May i suggest picking up RAWVOLUTION by Matt Amsden at your local library and making the "Shake Your Money Maker" smoothie. You may become too horny.
He should have labeled it the "This Will Make You a Caged Animal in Heat Shake"
Good Luck : D
I recently heard that watermelon is considered a natural viagra for men. The watermelon gazbacho recipe from Raw Food Real World is excellent. Good Luck!
Well I am just super stoked to hear that MACA may be my answer!!!
I battle with a low sex drive, thankfully my boyfriend and I have been together a while now and he loves me enough to deal with it...it's terrible though because I really do feel like a bad girlfriend for not wanting anything sexual at all.....ugggh. I have some MACA in my fridge, I am hoping it has not yet reached it's best before date as it is rather expensive and I try to keep raw as simple as possible to avoid a pricy grocery bill... Also, I am not a huge fan of the taste of MACA...Even the smallest amount and I know it's in there, kind of like cumin or cilantro, it is such a strong flavor... Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
**does anyone know of some good smoothie combos that will mask the taste of MACA??**
On a side note...It is GOOD TO BE BACK HERE!!!! I kind of abandoned raw for a while but I think it's what I need right now...but this time I am going to do it right, go slow and not punish myself if I am not 100% because ultimately that is not my goal...
