Periods are stupid.  I skipped mine last month since it was wedding/honeymoon time, and now I'm wondering why I don't just skip it all the time.  It would make the BC pills more expensive because a month's worth would only last three weeks, but... anyway, I feel crampy and sluggish and a bit miserable today.

I decided to visit The Crossings for the first time in awhile, and realized that I could get access to the Married Couples and Married Women forums... it was a bit traumatizing, actually.  For some reason, I could joke and talk about sex in detail easily before I got married... now it seems like a breach of trust.  I don't understand why... sex-wise, nothing has changed... but now that he's my husband it seems a bit more sacred and sharing all the "details" with my girlfriends seems wrong.  Well, the Xings couples apparently think it's the only thing TO talk about.  I just learned so many things that I didn't want to know about so many people... even one of my girlfriends, who I would have LOVED to talk to about sex, but she's never said a thing about it (I know she was a virgin when she got married)... and now her husband has posted all this stuff online... and I'm just a bit grossed out.  So, I don't think I'll be going back to the Xings for awhile.  I just don't want to know that much information, thank you.  Especially from/about people who think that having sex before marriage is evil and wrong and then have such an incredibly flippant attitude about it after they get married.  I suppose it also has something to do with posting it up on the internet.  Sharing sex stories can be funny in person, with close friends, but I don't want the whole world reading about my sex life, thank you very much. 

Okay.  Whatever.

[edit:  i'm not saying it's a bad thing to be a virgin when you get married... it's just the holier-than-thou attitude that i despise.  i don't understand how signing a marriage license can make a difference... and i think it's weird that so many of these gals think sex is a dirty word before marriage, but feel free to share every intimate detail after marriage.  for me (and most of my friends) it's been the opposite... sexual escapades are fun and amusing and worth talking about when you are single and living it up... once you are married and have made a life-long vow to only have sex with one person for the rest of your life, there seems like there's an unwritten vow that your sexual experiences will be sacred, spiritual, and personal-- INTIMACY.  "intimate" doesn't mean something you write about in detail on the internet.  seriously.]

Hahahaha you gotta realize, doll, that for some people all they've got goin' is mediocre lukewarm sex to talk about. XD Yeah, I don't get why their desperation to make sure we all know they're getting some. At this point sex is kinda something fun to poke a bit of good-natured fun about (for me), but I really don't like it, yeah, when people go into too much detail. It's like being invited against your will to view them on mental webcam. None of them are pretty sights.

If you go on nuvaring you only replace it once per month and you can skip your periods. I did that for two years :)

Oh, and btw, I think at least some of the sex talk is for girls who were virgins when they got married and don't know what to do afterwards. :\

But actually I agree. For a while it seemed ok, but then over the past year I've definitely been skipping the TMI posts. lol. I don't want the mental image. Didn't need to know that. :)
