Check out these most common signs that a woman has not been sexually active to see if you recognize them in your own life.

1. You Can’t Remember When You Washed Your Sheets

Okay, so the rule of thumb is to wash your sheets at least every two weeks. But if you legitimately can’t recall when you tossed the bedsheets in the washing machine, it’s probably because nothing much has happened in them.

2. Suddenly, Everyone Around You Is Super Hot

Are you finding everyone who’s the least bit attractive incredibly hot right now? Perhaps you’re imagining things that would make a porn star blush. If you’re fantasizing about anything and everything that passes you by, it’s a sign that it’s been a while since you’ve seen some action.

3. You Don’t Care About Hair Down There

When you’re not having sex, shaving tends to move way down your list of priorities (especially down there).

4. Lingering Hugs

Did you hang on a little longer than you should have when your cute friend gave you a hug? If you’re lingering in an embrace to the point of awkwardness, it could signal that you’re missing physical intimacy.

5. You’re Thinking More About Past Encounters

Are you suddenly scrolling through your contacts to find that hook-up from two months ago? Maybe you’re tempted to text an ex or reconnect with an old friend with benefits.

6. You’re Questioning Your Performance

If you did recently have sex for the first time in a long time, are you replaying the moment over and over?  You may wonder how you performed or if you should have done anything differently.

7. Your Sex Toy Collection Is Growing

Maybe you were never one for sex toys, and you now have ten. Or perhaps you’ve always kept a few around (just in case), and now your collection’s tripled. If you’re expanding your ways to engage solo, this could signal it’s been a while since you had sex.

Please note that the use of sex toys is not recommended, as it can negatively impact your physical well-being and hamper your sexual life. If you are a Muslim woman, it’s important to be aware that sex toys are prohibited in your religion.

What Is Sex Dry Spell?

A sex dry spell refers to a period of time when a person or a couple goes without engaging in sexual activity.

Are You In A Sex Dry Spell?

If chowing down on ice cream in bed sounds irresistibly seductive to you, it’s probably been a while since you had sex. Of course, sometimes the lack of sex is intentional, and other times it’s not. Either way, if it’s been a minute since you’ve danced between the sheets, you’ll notice a few signs that make this fact loud and clear.


The essential thing is to remember the connection between sex and your health. Sometimes, abstaining can be a good thing. But there’s no denying having sex has many health benefits. No matter what your reason for taking a sex break, stay true to yourself.
