I may be diabetic, but I am still a sensual, sexual being; capable of enjoying what my Higher Power has given me. Even though my entire body will not
always cooperate, my mind compensates and allows me to enjoy life.

I do tire, when we pretend that sex should not exsist, or not talk about it at all, especially when there is a large number of healthy people, that still enjoy their
bodies, and Life itself. They just happen to have diabetes as well.

We are fortuante, that is erectile dysfunction, that we have the Viagra's, cialis's, and Levertra's; although it sometimes puts me to sleep! LOL
As we ARE healthy, intelligent people, I can compensate with other functioning parts, such as tactile, verbal, and written. With the mind being
the best sensual organ we have; it helps figure a way to…enjoy Life, as we're entitled.

I am concerned how it may effect women, the other half of us healthy humanoids. I hope that they have technology rooting for them as well.

Many people have a phobia about what can and should be discussed, "Taboo Temperment" is barbaric at times, especially today.
Here are some articles that I posted months ago concerning male impotence aka Erectile Dysfunction:





Sex and an active sex life are normal, natural, and a part of life, the days of silence and taboo are as limp as the tool !

Happy day all,

Glad to be a part of this subject, well my husband as you all know is the diabetic in our hm. Yes there have been times where its been so long that we have not been able to have sex, but thank God for deliverance. I had to ask God to surpress my sexuality (not take) you have to watch what you ask God for. Remember He is true to His word. Until Michael is in the mood it was hard in the beginning I had to do alot of praying fasting & studing Gods word.

Now don't get me wrong I have no problem w/the BOB (just not for me). We have to do what we have to do for our own satisfaction. My main thing about this conversation is that I have seen couples break up because of not being to have sex on the regular because of the spouse that is diabetic is not in the mood. I try to explain to them that that is not a biblical reason to divorce are seperate. But your marriage should not be based on sex only. It should be based on God & Love & w/those two you can get thru anything. I enjoyed all the comments & will continue enjoying the rest. Be blessed & remember that w are all highly favored in the name of Jesus.

Working 4 Jesus, & Loving it.

Us women had technology first..it requires batteries, a quiet room and 30 minutes alone.
