Read it and act right now! If your sexual relations used to be more satisfying, something probably just went the wrong direction in your relationship.
We welcome your thoughts. I love my husband, but when it comes to sex, he has been, and still is, a year-old boy.
‘how to make my wife horny?’ – understand the secrets of her sexuality
At first I was a willing participant, but after years of his moping, cajoling, screaming, and disrespect, I lost interest. Finally, several years ago, I decided to keep the relationship and family intact by agreeing to sex once a week. I had no family support, no money, a lack of self-esteem, and young children. But on this one thing we cannot agree. He does not take testosterone or engage in porn; he just wants sex with me. Do I continue to close my eyes and endure that 30 minutes once a week to enjoy the other 99 percent of my life? Read about this arrangement here, originally from my book The Bitch is Back and reprinted in NextTribe.
But that practice might apply more widely to younger couples. A survey reported in AARP a few years ago showed that of 8, people aged 50 or older, a full third in relationships reported rarely or never having sex; another almost-third—28 percent—said they do it only a couple of times a month, and eight percent once a month.
Only 31 percent of these couples said they have sex several times a week. Who knew? Actually, a lot of us. Okay, though, not that funny. How many hundred have you seen lately for Cialis and Viagra?
Still, supposedly, sex is still good for us. It supposedly strengthens our vaginal walls, supposedly burns lots of calories really? Maybe in our 20s, when we were into stuff like Reverse Cowgirl, but …and supposedly releases oxytocin, a hormone that makes us feel bonded. I say supposedly because, as no doctor, I can tell you only what I hear, read, and experience myself.
Which brings us to you, SOI. VERY big! And feeling like you have no control over sex, even in your marriage, is not okay. You love the guy otherwise, and you also like your life with the benefits that come with being married.

I get it. The only solution here is to talk to this man. Tell him you need to have a conversation about something important to you, and set up a time. When that time comes, put on some makeup or whatever, at least get out of sweatspour you each a drink, and approach him with a smile.
Then tell him you love him and your life with him, but you need to discuss your sex life. If he wants to keep doing it, he has to understand your needs, too, because sex is about two people. Not just him. Reiterate that you love him and want to stay married, but you need to find other ways to satisfy his desires without you feeling trapped, uncomfortable, and unhappy.
If he refuses to listen? Tell him intimacy between you is over until he does. Though if he is, a few weeks of internet dating as a selfish, long-married something should enlighten him about that.
Why he would even want that is beyond me. Does Playboy even still exist? NextTribe editor Jeannie Ralston suggests the Starz series Outlander— specifically, season 1, episode 7—to get you in the mood. Though really, she says, almost any episode of this broiling hot series should do the trick.
Forgive me for getting graphic, but here are some other things you can suggest in lieu. You lie naked with him while he gets himself off.

Luckily her friends had plenty of good suggestions.

On our recent visit to Santa Fe, the first NextTribe trip since the pandemic, we explored the many facets of this magical part of New Mexico—and ourselves. Decades ago, Anne Bayin suffered a particularly painful kind of sexual abuse. Now she looks back and asks herself if she should have or could have spoken up sooner.
Sexual pain is more common for women than many men know. And a lot of doctors tell women to have a glass of wine, grit your teeth and endure it. Early on I learned it was mostly about what he wanted.
My preferences were never particularly important. That was the mantra for 18 years.
Help! i love my wife, but i don’t like having sex with her
No desire by him to research and see what that did to me physically. Just still the marital requirement of 3 x a week. Work a full time job, keep the house, cook all the meals, care for the kids, run all the errands. Can you see how this just became one more thing required of me. ONe more job to perform? After 18 years of marriage he had an affair with someone 19 years younger than me. With intense marriage counseling, we survived that episode. He has learned a little. We now have sex 1 time a week. But I am finally at a point in life where I can start dealing with the trauma of being molested by 8 men growing up.
I love my husband, other than the trauma of feeling raped once a week, we have a decent relationship. Been married for 24 years now. Now that we are getting older, he is wanting to take testosterone suppliments so his muscles will get bigger.
Help! i don’t want to have sex with my husband
Not because his count is low, but because he is aging naturally and his muscles are more wiry and not as large as they used to be. This causes me so much anxiety. I cry every week. But how to reconcile that sex feels like rape after being told I gotta have it 3 x a week for 18 years and all our history. Sex makes me want to sob.
I have no answers. And sensate exercises? He told the therapist 5 years ago it took too long. Needless to say we never did it and there is still no ease in me accepting his touch.
I have no answers only pain and despair. Married for 15 years and sex pretty much dwindled the instant we had the ceremony.
When your husband doesn’t want sex
She even refused sex on our wedding night. There was the heady few months when we were making a family but after that nothing. Totally sexless for 2 years now. But my dear wife is always too tired or stressed for sex.
That made her very sad and made me feel terrible I said it — though it was true. She made me feel like a sex crazed maniac with her shocked distaste. I have a very strong sex drive and she appears to have none.
