Are there support groups for people who are going through a long dry spell? If so, where do I sign up? Dry spells are weird because they just sort of sneak up on you. It's like, all of a sudden, you realize it's been a hot minute since you've been with anyone and you don't exactly know how you got here. At least, that's how most of my dry spells have felt.
There's nothing wrong with having a dry spell. In fact, I like to think of them of as sexual palate cleansers — some much-needed time off for self-care and reflection before getting back on the wagon or, you know, a person. Everyone has them — voluntarily or not — and there's absolutely nothing to be ashamed of.
There's also nothing to be afraid of. Your dry spell won't last forever so stop making all of those jokes about growing old with your cats. They're insensitive to cat owners and to you.
It's important to remember that your sex life doesn't define you. Think of it like you would any other area of your life. Take wellness, for example. Some months, you drink green juice with every meal and never skip a gym day. Other times, your Uber Eats bill is almost as high as your rent. It's called balance.
Don't believe me? Here are five women who've gone through dry spells just like you and how they managed to get through them.
