I've been wondering recently how much my sex life determines my mood. I've noticed over the years that an event or thought that might sometimes cause a major reaction in me, resulting in a flare up or brown study, can on other occasions cause as little disturbance as water on a duck's back. I've always assumed that something in my personality determined this, and that it was largely outside my control; or, at least, the internal reaction of rage or disappointment was outside my control, whereas, of course, the choice of whether or not I 'give in' to the emotion was mine alone.
I'm now wondering if something as seemingly innocuous as regular orgasms could be the cause of this. In other words, if orgasm makes the status quo seem like something I need to get away from – to spread my genes by impregnating someone other than my wife – then making the present seem less than fantastic would be the best way of going about it.
