Alcohol is so sexually stimulating to some men that they have over indulged. Couples are occasionally dismayed to find that when drinking is stopped the man tends to be impotent.

Unless the reason is understood, there may be an emotional upset. Some of us had this experience, only to enjoy, in a few months, a finer intimacy than ever.

There should be no hesitancy in consulting a doctor or psychologist if the condition persists. We do not know of many cases where this difficulty lasted long. –Big Book | More…

We can join our spirituality with our sexual selves by taking responsibility for being sexual. Being responsible means we take the risk of being vulnerable, of giving and receiving affection and sexual expression in our relationships.

“We remembered always that our sex powers were God-given and therefore good, neither to be used lightly or selfishly, nor to be despised or loathed.” I will lift up my eyes unto the heights whence cometh my help. I pray that I may set my sights on higher things. –24Hours | More…

Our sexuality is a part of ourselves that deserves healing attention and energy. It is a part of us that we can allow to become connected to the whole of us; it is a part of us that we can stop being ashamed of.

It is okay and healthy to allow our sexual energy to open up and become healed. It is connected to our creativity and to our heart. We can establish and maintain healthy, appropriate boundaries around our sexuality.

We can enjoy the gift of being human beings who have been given the gift of sexual energy, without abusing or discounting that gift. –The Language of Letting Go/Melody Beattie | More…
