--Rearguard: [ I would have thought that a woman should be able to tell whether she can become warm and wet by some sort of self inspection.
It would appear from the comments that this is not the case......]---Not sure where you're getting that???
But recent retirement has provided time to reconnect with several very old and dear friends as well as more quality time with others nearby. Believe me: 4 of these 5 women were and still are very passionate about life, highly intelligent, and take excellent care of themselves. I've been through the HRT, Found that it just required a little more effort on the male part for preparation. Admittedly, I do miss the great sex that I once had.
Because I'll tell you one thing: if you don't use it, you'll start losing it."or"HRT is worth the relatively small risk in my case. Even though [John Doe] and I are way past the sex part of our marriage, HRT has made life a lot easier for me." It's not as if I've had "these types of conversations" with dozens of woman my age. Does that to- the- moon- easy- spontaneous- weakandgigglingallover sex no longer happens for most of us 45 ????
And, oh my....a man who can kiss.....remember just "making out" ?? Sex is such a dynamic part of how men and women "discover" each other....keeping it alive deserves some attention. think HRT is better now than in years gone by because the hormones can be specially formulated for women based on their lab results.
