Off the boil

Posted by Rachel on October 15, 2005

What is "off the boil?"

I suspect it means not excited (hot) to do something. But I have to use it in a play and it seems to imply that my husband stopped wanting to have sex. Is it always meant to be sexual? Or does it apply to other things as well? Thanks.
