I am a recently divorced 55-year-old woman in good physical shape. After a virtually sexless marriage, I recently started seeing someone who became an amazing lover. So far so good except that sex has taken over my life. He lives on the other side of the country, which means we can spend only every two weeks together, but when we do, we will have sex seven or eight times a day. He's in his 50s too, and I really don't know how he does it – there's no Viagra involved. But I have no complaints. Should I just go with him or try to put my sexual craze under some kind of control?
