Previous Poll on sexual energy:
There were 29 replies in all--20 women and 9 men--11 to the list and 18 private.

1. To the question "how many of us feel the energy as sexual" 19 answered yes 3 no (1 had a decrease in libido) 7 did not respond
Of the 19 yes answers, 13 were yes and 6 were sometimes or occasionally.

In light of the recent discussion regarding differences in sexuality, it's interesting that 7 of the women and 3 of the men (about 1/3 each) modified their answers by such words as: Extremely Very high A lot especially at the full moon sexually ballistic hard to control and unrelenting! A couple of people mentioned they had been able to redirect the sexual energy footer links for polls section
