Just yesterday I was thinking that knee replacement would be just the thing to spice up the bedroom.

Guess I was wrong.

I got new knees baby. From now on you are going to see a demon in the bedroom!

Knee function and sex? Took me a few moments to make the connection. I had to journey back in time a bit.

You've got to be kidding me. So, a person with low sex drive thinks: what can I do? Oh, I know, I'll have a knee replacement. Ludicrous

Yeah, because that happened ever in real life.

“That” being someone thinking that a knee replacement would be a cure for low sex drive.

Show me one person ever who thought that.

I reckon doggy style is more popular than I thought. My friend's wife had a bad hip from her 30's. Ghosh bress him for being patient and abstinent.

I guess you have never seen a Japanese girl's knees.

Seriously though,

Newsflash: Without functioning knees, there ain't gonna be much humpin'.

I wondered why my old girl got two new knees and two new hips. What you can do with all that new hardwear.

The headline seems incongruous. But a guy with bad knees is pretty much confined to woman on top, or perhaps to a standing position where he moves the woman with his arms or gets assistance by seating her on a tabletop or counter of just the right height. The whole house would have to be redesigned.

I should take better care of my knees.

Except for Rohmer's fans ( le genou de Claire). Well, that's a 1970 movie, so they are starting to age...

normal" sexual activity, 

Which means ?

Show me one person ever who thought that.

They think it secretely and only share on the dark web... I can't show you one dude that thinks the Chinese pharmacy's snake oils can make him perform like a horse, you never see them shopping... but the sales are good.

Previous acrobatic sexual positions are unobtainable with bad knees. You folks who don’t understand this ....well, mundane lives, I suppose.

It may not be intuitive but having a part of your body that produce extreme pain with every kind of movement tends to spoil all kinds of physical activity, be it walking, dancing or sex.

I mean, if one of the reasons of not wanting to have sex is because it has become really painful so it inevitably kills the mood, it is reasonable to expect that eliminating that pain would also improve sex, it is there in the article that around half of the people thought so.

I agree with you. But I don't think anyone thought that the comment made was that the lack of a sex drive was the direct impetus to get a knee replacement. If someone has a bad knee, which stops them from having sex, they're going to know the knee what is leading to their decreased sex drive, they're not going to be in a state of having a low sex drive, and suddenly deciding that a knee replacement is going to be the direct solution.

What you are speaking of is the point behind the story. What the other person was speaking of was... worthy of being pointed out as I did.

There are other options which can delay a TKR which allow dexterity to be maintained...
