28 July:  I received La Melle’s LADY PRELOX pills today!  It made me reflect a bit about what has been going on (or not going on) in the bedroom lately. I can summarise it nicely, by telling you that my husband and I gave each other slippers for our recent wedding anniversary. So warm, so comfy, but not very sexy!  

We’ve been together 24/7 since lockdown.  Most of the time only a few metres apart. And happily so.  But I’ve missed going off and doing my thing while he does his thing and then returning at the end of the day bringing goods and news into the home from out there in the wild world.  We are in domestic captivity.  Where not much mating happens.  

Read this excellent piece drawing on the work of the phenomenal Esther Perel about reconciling the closeness needed for intimacy with the psychological distance that fuels desire.   

So, I’ll start my LADY PRELOX pills today, and who knows, I might just substitute the slippers for heels…or find slippers with heels!
