Such a taboo topic sometimes. And I know many of us get all red faced and embarrassed when we talk about it. But someone needs to right?!?!
Sex and having CF. What does this mean for us?
For me it meant no changes to my sexual behaviors until a few months ago. I could do anything and not be hindered by my lack of lung function. However, as I watch my FEV1 slowly decline, I see a decline in my tolerance with sex as well. Such a bad correlation. It's logical for it to happen but why must it?
P would probably and will probably beat me for postong some of this stuff, but I won't be graphic LOL.
Sex for me now means no on top action. If I decide to "take the plundge" I last about 2 minutes, though it feels like an hour, till I must roll over and practically die and let him do the work. So lately I have forgone the attempt and just been the rag doll. I HATE IT. Not being able to be active during sex is one of the worst things ever (besides not being able to breathe which coincides lol). You can still enjoy yourself when he takes the lead, but how many of us actually enjoy ALWAYS letting him take the lead? We want to be in charge sometimes right? Why must CF take that away too?
I doubt I am the only one out there who experiences this so the door is open, respond with your comments, but remember this is a public blog so please no graphic details ;)
