Good reason for a study! I have learned that some people do not feel pain when they get drilled on. Seriously. My father-in-law is one of them. I had a Dentist once who didn't feel pain with getting teeth drilled on either. These men do not understand the pain that others have. Luckily, I have a Dentist now who does feel pain when getting drilled and he does use Novacaine or Gas. I like having my teeth cleaned and checked. I am somewhat proud of my teeth. I floss every day, I keep them clean. I had all my tooth aches in my youth, and I empathize with those who are in tooth pain, it is one of the worst pains in the world. You have to have an empathetic dentist, one that comprehends dental pain. Now that I have good teeth, from all the years of drilling, filling, cleaning, root canals and dental work, it was all worth it. Another reason that people don't like gong to the Dentist is because it is very intimate and Dentists and hygienists are all up in your face. You have to get very clean, clean your teeth and smell good. Seriously, you are being judged when you go to the Dentist. The bright light in your face, the instruments in your mouth, again, it is very intimate and many people get embarrassed by it. It is a humbling experience as you get older, but luckily I have a Dentist who is older than me and he treats me with respect. It is very difficult to go through with a Dental appointment, but it is essential to go to it. You have to keep your teeth in good condition or you will eventually have to get them all pulled. BTW: When people have a tooth ache , they can die from a toothache, did you know that? It has happened , I have read about it. Society should have an emergency room Dentist to work on people's teeth for those times when you are having a Dental emergency. My own Dentist said that is a smart idea. It would benefit many people who do not have their own Dentist, or if you have an emergency at a time that the office is not open, you could get treatment from a real Dentist.

Makes sense. As someone to whom sex was always important, we always made time for making love. As time went by, we still made time for love. Now, I realize that we have been married a long time and while sex is still important, it's not the most important thing in the world, Keep it in perspective.
