Lovers with low libidos?

Yesterday I was thinking about how my sex drive is a lot lower than it used to be, and it got me wondering: What would happen if that happened to someone who had a commitment to the Lover's Temple, like a Supplicant or an Embodiment? I'm guessing that Supplicants can just leave but that it's frowned upon, but that an Embodiment would either stick it out or be given sexual energy from Nerr/Neya. What do you guys think?

I get the feeling that if nobody in the entire temple of incredibly well trained, insightful, and knowledgeable people could rekindle their lust... well, there's probably something a little deeper rooted and perhaps it's time for a visit to the sisters. Also, pleasure exists in many forms. Maybe in one form it's diminished, but they find a new path to fulfillment opening.

or perhaps a new opening as a path to fulfillment? }:)

Eep! I'll bet I accidentally hit my laptop's mouse. >

Sorry for any confusion!

I was just making a joke about changing their penetration-hole of preference.

It was actually correct as written--the beginning of a new path to fulfillment. However, those of us with dirty minds like to twist things this way and that >.> Or in and out.

It seems like linguists can no longer speak their native language. I have no idea where half the words in my sentences are supposed to go anymore. I can't spell because I took a course in IPA and more often than not try to spell everything like it sounds. And then there's the whole prescriptive/descriptive grammar debate... Half the time I'm convinced that I'm forgetting some random weird rule that makes no sense except that it works in Latin (to boldly split infinitives, anyone?)

Just... GAH! Sorry if I took that badly when it was meant as a joke, it's late and my brain is absolutely fried.

Me and my friends tend to make a lot linguistic jokes. Literal translation of idioms being the least sophisticated form Wink

But I know what you mean; with huge difference between Polish and English I no longer know where to put commas in either. I caught myself of speaking in Polish while thinking in English and stopping in the middle of a sentence because I've used grammatical form that is impossible to finish in Polish while making any sense.

(And when I try to speak in German I start thinking in Japanese. Why? That is a great mystery for me...)

And hey, I'm not even good in lingusitics 0o

So this'll await me when I'm done with college? Gah! And I already dislike IPA's IPA. It's a b... female dog to change to every time I'm writing down the stuff our professor tells us. On the laptop, that is.

I'm not ever done yet ;P

Ugh, IPA is evil, we had to learn both IPA and slavic phonetic alphabet... and I was not too good with either XD I tend to connect the spelling with the sounds and working out what the sound actually is (and not mixing the two) was a hell for me.
That and the names (nominativus, ergativus and so on) was my downfall. I understand the mechanics though, so I passed Blum 3

Bleh, ergatives. I had to look those up last night for a historical linguistics homework on Udi. Don't you just love how it's always some really random, strange language from the middle of nowhere that they choose for homeworks?

ESPECIALLY in and out...

Not all petioners that go to the Lovers temple are looking for love. There was the bonus story with Issak and the scared women. When Temmin walked down the observation hall for the petioning rooms, most of what he saw wasn't sex. Bondage, S&M, etc.

One of Temmin's first tests was of his refractory period, and not all guys are the same, nor is every guy consistant with his refractory. So they can't be all sex all the time. And Mei has told us before that no matter what they come to the Lover's Temple for, each person learns something.

People in Allis's and Issak's positions (*snerk*) definitely do a lot of other things, but they're still expected to have a /lot/ of sex, at least as part of training supplicants and the like. If a female embodiment isn't in the mood very often then I suppose she can fake it (or focus more on the emotional intimacy and the non-genital contact) and grab the lube, but what about male embodiments?

ETA: Post 111! Make a wish! (I'm not waiting for 1111, so 111 is gonna have to be good enough Lol

Nice to know someone else in the world gets excited about palindromes ... and if memory serves, this just might be 22 for me Biggrin

There is always the way of Venna, or the way of Farr. I think if you're a supplicant at the Lover's temple, you probably enjoy giving pleasure.

you should start a new thread on the subject of what to do about lovers with low libidos. Hell, you might want to start one anyway...I bet it would be interesting.

Supplicant

but I am one. Smile Help, yes...but not good at starting new threads. I prefer to read them, comment, and just absorb information. I wouldn't know how much info to give, where to go, or what to ask. LOL

and people usually fill in the blanks in their posts. I can start it though, if you're looking for info Smile You're definitely not alone there, and it'll probably help a lot of people.
