I am very impressed that the doffcock session was suppressed till page 4 of this thread. Well done, lads.

Could you please remind me what doffcock/ing is again, 'yorz?

Whatever it is, I'm not doffing my cock to nobody.

Doffcocking = wandering off the point in Liffspeak.

Y'know, that's the first of those Meaning of Liff words I've heard that actually sounds like a real word that someone might make up.

??? I must have a different print. Doffcock doesn't feature in mine.

I sometimes think that at my age, having sex is a bit like having a night out on the town.

Someone you care about asks you out and you think 'Ah, I can't really be bothered, there's a good programme on the telly tonight, I've already had my bath and put my pjs on - I'd really much rather have a nice cozy evening on the sofa'
However, you care about this person, so once in a while it's nice to compromise for their sake.
Then, you get into town and think 'hey, this is actually really good fun. I should do this more often'.

But if it's such good fun with this particular person that you care about, why would you let it depend on whether this person 'asks you out' (to follow the analogy)?
And what does age have to do with it? It's more about knowing people you feel comfortable enough with and are attracted to, to want to go to town.

I am lucky enough to know several people I deeply care about, but there's no incentive to contemplate having sex with them only because there's so little of it happening.

Compromise? I am a bit older than you (I think), but am definitely still susceptible to electric sparks and, frankly, need to feel sparks in order to enjoy it. It's part of my make up. Just 'doing' it because the occasion arises I cannot, unless there is this care/fondness plus electrical charge. This prerequisite does water down the opportunities to indulge, but that's the way I am.

Rereading this, I think I may come over as moralising, which is absolutely not my intention. I just try to convey how I function.

For me it's definitely age dependent - the spark was much more lively a few years back!!! I don't know for sure, but I think that a gradual loss of libido to some extent is pretty common. Once over the boiling heat of adolescence, sex loses that urgency.

And, yup, it is really good fun to 'go to town' with my partner, but I have become exceedingly lazy, and the spark just doesn't always ignite spontaneously any more. Once kindled, however, it burns just a brightly as ever, and then I feel stupid for not doing it more often.

The above applies to going into town both in the literal and metaphorical sense, and is pretty much down to laziness.
