How long was your longest sex dry spell? Two weeks? One year? Perhaps, through a series of unfortunate events, you went from having constant sexcapades to dealing with blue balls for what seemed like forever and a day.
In the course of a dry spell, things can get so bad that most people resort to getting to know themselves more intimately to satisfy their sex appetite.
However, that only offers momentary gratification. You spend every waking moment longing for that moment when you will have sex with someone else other than yourself again.
Inability to secure a sex partner for an extended period of time is referred to as a dry spell or sex drought. Everybody endures a dry spell every now and then, sometimes for a very long time. There is no fixed time span that is considered a typical dry spell.
