So, final feedback on the Lady Prelox LIBIDO pills! Firstly, I need to say that I didn’t think I really had a problem with libido…but when I started taking the pills 3 months ago we were in the middle of lock down. And as Esther Perel taught me – mating doesn’t happen in captivity!

Did the pills work? Short answer. No. So you can stop reading now.

However, they certainly would do no harm and contain mainly pycnogenol and rosehip. I remember giving my daughter pycnogenol to aid concentration when she was at school, so if it helps you concentrate on your partner it might work!

As things slowly go back to normal outside the home, they are going back to normal inside the bedroom too. But what is “normal”? It is sometimes difficult to judge and know this in the sex obsessed world out there. I don’t care anymore what others would consider normal. Am I having as much sex as I did in my 20s? No. Is that a problem? I don’t think so. Is it a problem for my husband? Ah…here’s the crux. When I asked him if he thought he would ever say no to sex, he said, “If I ever say no, take me outside and shoot me!” (Of course I’d do it outside…not going to mess in the house! But he likes to mansplain that way.) Difference in desire in a partnership can lead to issues. But to be honest, I don’t think there is as much a difference in desire between us as a difference in roles. Men have to bear the weight of their masculinity forever tied to them wanting it all the time. Shame. I love sex, but the world is full of so many other experiences too! So the roles we play are me being focused on things that interest me, and him being focused on what interests him. Which is me. And that’s fine.

We are going away for a few days tomorrow as a belated wedding anniversary getaway. Apparently it is going to rain all the time. So, we will be focusing on each other…
