End the dry spell

I resolve to have sex with someone other than myself. 2010 didn't see much action!!!

    I want to feel like a sexual

    I want to feel like a sexual being again.

      More please =]

      To make love to my 2 1/2 year fiance more frequently.

        IUD

        I would like to finally get that IUD that I've wanted for a long time! I have an appointment with a new GYN at the beginning of the year and my fingers are crossed that it'll be a GO. :-)

          Got it!

          I was able to already realize my sexuality-based New Year's resolution of getting an IUD: I'm happy to say that I got my Mirena last week! How are *your* sexuality-based New Year's resolutions looking?

            Actually put myself out

            Actually put myself out there, not let it get to me if someone isn't interested.
