Unhappy Nighttime- do you sometimes want food more than sex?

I know, it's so wrong.

Last night I found myself pushing my boyfriend off because ALL I could think about was the cookies in the kitchen that a friend made. Like, I couldn't even enjoy myself because I was too busy mentally fighting the urge to binge.

This has been happening to me a lot.
It's not normal, and I guess this justifies that I have a problem.

Thoughts?

Were you hungry or just food obsessing?

If you were hungry I'd say that it's normal. If you were food obsessing, I wouldn't say it's completely abnormal, but ya maybe a small problem. Does that happen a lot?

I think just food obsessing! I had one cookie, and when I went to the bedroom all I could think about is that I wanted more! Delightful, right? lol

If you can't wait to have sex before going after cookies, that's not a good headspace to be in (unless the sex sucks).

Haha, this is exactly how I felt on Saturday. I just wanted DF to be done so I could eat some of the peanut butter pie I made. Shh, don't tell him I said that!

For me it's not that the sex sucks, but that the medication I'm on (birth control and zoloft) has pretty much killed my libido.

Nope. I cannot say I've ever felt like that. Sex is a requirement to keeping my marriage and self healthy and happy, cookies just make me fat. Yes, sometimes I want cookies, but they're never on the same level as human interaction, especially of an intimate nature. I wouldn't say that is normal or healthy and investigating why that food has such an obsessive hold on you might be in order.

I almost always want food more than sex. Although there's nothing physically wrong with me and I can orgasm quite easily, I've never been a highly sexual person. I don't get mentally aroused very easily and sex often feels like work to me. I wish it were different, but I don't think it's wrong. It just is. And I've never denied my husband when he wants sex (which fortunately isn't too often these days, though we're as close as ever).

I just got divorced. Since this forum is anonymous, I will admit here (and only here) that a small part of my motivation for forgoing cookies is to find someone to have sex with! Cuz I miss it. (I do know skinny is not a prerequisite to finding love, blah blah blah. And I am not waiting until I have lost the weight to start looking. I just know that it's easier when I am smaller.)

Obsessing over anything to the detriment of other things is a problem. Doesn't matter if it's cookies over sex or sex over cookies. It's the obsession that is the problem, not the object of the obsession. If it's a common problem for you, then it might be worth looking into a bit. If not, then get the cookies out of the house and get busy with your boyfriend.

I've never wanted food more than sex since I've been married. But, I will admit that I have binged during the day even after considering that it'd be less comfortable with my husband that evening.

No. Sex > food. I'd likely go all day without food if that was required to have sex that evening.

Simple answer is no. I'll leave it at that.

Um, given the topic of thread, use of the carrot emote seems awfully questionable.
