LJ Idol week 11: "Sexual Healing"

“Not tonight, dear, I have a headache.”


This line has become cliché; it gets used in books and movies as a quick joke. And it always confuses me. 


You see, I get a lot of headaches. A headache makes everything miserable, everything is more difficult when done through a haze of pain. Over the years I’ve experimented with a lot of headache cures, and I’ve finally found one that is sure-fire for me. I don’t reach for aspirin, other drugs, pressure-point massage, or a caffeinated beverage to make me feel better. Given my druthers, I reach for my boyfriend.


Orgasms are a fabulous headache cure. 


If you think about the physiology it makes perfect sense. Your system is flooded with endorphins; your blood flow is redirected to focus on a different bodily location; and if the sex is done correctly you certainly aren’t paying attention to your head anymore.


Can you imagine if this caught on everywhere? In the drug store next to the usual pain relief drugs there would be a section of shelf for vibrators.  Given that it’s a drug store they likely won’t stock anything too sparkly or unusual. Likely they would be in very tasteful, pastel-type colors, though it would be fun if they ran the same gamut as band-aids. Some flesh toned, some in bright colors, and a few with cartoon characters. There would also need to be a section of shelf reserved for the men, though honestly I’m not quite as up on what would be a quick orgasm assistant for men. Maybe a box with a pocket-sized Playboy and some lotion?


Orgasms turn out to be a cure for other small things that ail you. Have an itch that won’t go away? Hands that won’t warm up? If you can redirect your attention away from your discomfort long enough to join a good friend in some enjoyable “partner calisthenics” you too could feel better in no time. It doesn’t cost anything and requires no special equipment.


So the next time you get a headache, do what I do. Find your honey and say “I have a headache dear. Let’s get it on!”

@@@This is my entry for week 11 of LJ Idol – the topic is ‘sexual healing'.  Per usual, I'll post a link to the poll on Friday once it is up.  Thank you for reading.@@@

I have no honey! My head will hurt for all eternity.

Boo! Perhaps you can continue to use aspirin until you get a honey. Or self medicate, I suppose.

*giggles* I love this!! Totally awesome.

Thanks. I'm excited it turned out as well as it did.

Thank you.

I love that icon.

Nice!! I had a similar thought, although I may have gone a little overboard...

Heh, now I have to start reading so I'll keep an eye out for yours.


I knew I couldn't be the only one who had discovered this.

Hahaha. Fun entry. Although a Scooby doo vibrator is just a little disturbing! Maybe the Flintstones? Yaba Daba doo!

Actually, my brain keeps going to Spongebob Squarepants.

Yaba Daba Doo!
Bwah ha haha!

Thanks for reading.

I like this. I'm blessed that I haven't gotten headaches often but next time I do, I'll follow this advice.

Thank you. I think it's worth trying, at the very least I don't think I've ever felt worse after.

I really liked this and can relate. Sex always cures my headaches, so needless to say anytime I get a headache and mention it and I get this look and then "Do you know what cures headaches?"

Heh. I've done that to my sweetie once or twice too. Thanks for reading.

OMG this is awesome! I was thinking of writing a homegame entry about my favorite headache cure! :)

Thanks so much! I'm glad it's not just me who uses this particular cure.

My partner actually gets what are called "coital headaches." They're more common when she has a headache to start with, but sometimes happen just randomly. Basically as soon as she has an orgasm, sometimes she gets a splitting migraine. One time it was so bad she actually passed out. The doctors have confirmed that it's a real phenomenon - started for her about 4 years ago.

That is the most awful thing I've ever heard. The doctors need to find a cure for that stat. Orgasms should not bring pain.

I'm sorry this doesn't work for you, but thanks for reading.

Love it! I use the same cure... Its the best medicine!

I'm glad it's not just me who knows about this wonder drug.

Thanks for reading!

Hee, I just discovered this cure! And afterwards my honey said, "Feel better? That should have released some tension." He makes me giggle. And it totally did!!

Yeah for a honey who makes you giggle. And for discovering a new headache cure!

LOL! That's the same thing I do! :D

I'm so glad it's not just me. Thanks for reading!

I like this, especially the image of drugstores stocking vibrators. (Grin)

Heh. I really want this to happen now, especially the idea of vibrators with cartoon characters. Not sure I'd use one, but it would be totally funny. Thanks for reading!

ha! I love your take on the topic. This is great! : D Excellent job.

Thanks so much! I had some heavy ideas but I really didn't want to go there.
