The feeling of horniness is a good indication that the body wants sex or a masturbation session. It also, strangely enough, can point toward a good time to dive head first into another kind of satisfying pursuit. It may be overreaching to say don’t tap into that favorite adult sex search when you get excited, but once in a while it is a good idea to see where following that energy to another place might lead.
Sexual excitement is a powerful force. When sublimated into a creative pursuit, amazing work can be the result. Think about the sheer power of the sex drive. Then think about that force sublimated into bursts of paint on a canvas, the passionate creation of a clay sculpture, or even the meticulous preparation of a fabulous meal. There is something about the procreative drive that has a deep kinship with the creative drive.
Even in terms nonspecific to linking the creative with the procreative urges, just the pure vigor of the energy associated with the sex drive can be put to good use elsewhere. In some sports traditions, coaches will tell their teams not to get laid the night before the big game. It could be that the extra anxiety level from not having an orgasm too close to the time of the game can give a sports figure an edge to kick it into high gear. It could be an interesting experiment for anyone to try out taking a break from sexual gratification to see what else might come of it, so to speak. A passionate essay, a vigorous dance routine, or a killer tennis match, perhaps? You never know if holding off from beating off will give you an advantage.
After the experiment, it is always nice to get back to basics. You may have discovered that your horny self is a great songwriter. You can celebrate by calling a fuck buddy and enjoying to your heart’s content.
