If she has a problem with this, divorce her.

OR, she could realize that there are more important things than withholding sex from her husband?

step 1) enter into a binding. monogamous relationship
step 2) withhold sex
step 3) wonder why they cheat or divorce you

I wonder how many men would get married if there was a sex clause in their prenuptials.


Look I get that things change over time, but why are they in a monogamous relationship which they refuse to have sex and expect their spouse to do the same?
I get that some people might not care, we are talking about the other 99% of unsexed spouses.

/the number of unhappy. unsexed, married people that I know cracks me up.
/strange, the recently divorced woman that I know is one of the happiest people. she left her sexless marriage and had moved on with her life. She is also one of the most religious people I know. She went with LIFE over setting such a terrible example for her children.

But dont try to tell me that one partner should be miserable and sexless because the other partner quit having sex.  Unless sex wasnt part of your marriage in the first place. Why did you get married again?
Religion? Kids? Dont kids require sex??

This BS again? Plenty of straight men who don't want to have sex with their long-term partner as often as the gal would prefer. Of course, when men start holding out on sex, it's because of their promiscuous biological urges or being tired of the same old vag or some crap. Whereas women who do the same are stereotypical withholding frigid wives. (if a woman gets tired of the same old peen, that's a whole 'nother firestorm).

Also like to point out, there are so many guys out there who can't stand it when their woman tries to initiate sex ... it has to be completely on the man's schedule and terms. Woman acts horny at anything but the appointed time? OH NOEZ SCARY!!! GET AWAY!

Withholding sex, huh?  Like, "Look I have all this sex but I won't let you have any of it"?  Do you know how many women would save their marriages if it was just as simple as "stop withholding"?  Probably not.  Since the idea that anything could be more important than sexual compatibility made you type out "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA," I'm just going to have to assume you are about as sexually mature as a middle schooler.

Once a woman stops feeling like she's pursued, she gets bored.

Always have a plan and never stop dating your significant other.

I'm old, we have a young child, and my sex drive has suffered.  Mu hubby is also free to fnd some elsewhere (as am I).  He does, I haven't.  We are happy.  It's not even that we never have sex. It's just a few times a month instead of a few times a week.  I get he needs more even if I don't.

It doesn't have to be so complicated.
 
2014-02-08 01:27:30 PM  
When the religious dogma of marriage is eventually eroded away to reveal that the covenant of marriage is a bond of trust and sharing, so too will the prudish concept of sexuality be re-imagined into an act of nature and bonding, and not a taboo. 

I fully support the concept of the "hall-pass" as it were, where married, committed couples have a set period of time away from each other to explore their sexuality. If you trust someone enough to take vows to stay by them until death, then you should love them enough to realize that human beings need variety and adventure. Sure, it may not be for everyone, but it is extremely liberating. 

The world would be a much better place if people got laid more.

Dear Men,

Stop listening to shiat like this written by some guy who hasn't seen pussy since he crawled out of one.

Look, If you shag your wife on the regular, you will find that she does all the housework and will shut the fark up about it. Women need dick like plants need rain. Don't shag your wife and she will biatch about everything else. But it's really the lack of dick she's pissed about.

She doesn't just need dick. She needs seduction and romance. She needs a sexy smack on the ass now and again and occasionally, a fark just because.

fark your wife. fark her hard, fark her often. It's not that women don't want sex. They just don't want your lazy, tired imitating porn sex that you think she wants. Lick her, spank her, pull her hair. fark the shiat out of her at least every two or three days.

She will do the housework because she'll be happy. You may even get steak.

Now. Ask me how I know?

Remarried and farking happy, that's why. Good dick and a lot of it, makes me a lot less biatchy. Just saying.

It's not feminist. It's not politically correct. It's just farking true.

Go shag your wife.

Why do people "get married" ( Bwahahahahaha, oh you're serious, let me laugh harder), in 2014 first world countries?

walktoanarcade: Once a woman stops feeling like she's pursued, she gets bored.


This is such a bullshiat argument.

If a woman plays the "chase me" game, then once you're married, the man's CAUGHT you.  You're hung up on the wall of his den as a trophy.  The game is over.  He stops hunting because he  won.

You could, instead, not make courtship a pursuit game in the first place.

If a woman needs to feel pursued, it's because of deep-seated insecurities.  That's pretty much it.

I posed the same question to Pepper Schwartz, a sociology professor at the University of Washington who coined the term "lesbian bed death," and she pointed out that gay male couples differentiate from each other in other ways, too. For gay men, she said, "the initial filter is erotic, so they're more likely to end up with somebody who's very different in terms of education or social class." But, she continued, "a gay woman thinks like the heterosexual woman who asks: 'Do we share common goals? Do we like to do things together? Is he smart?' " She believes that lesbian and heterosexual couples share sexual challenges because both relationships involve women who tend to seek similar mates. As she put it, most men, regardless of sexual orientation, prioritize the erotic, but "heterosexual men have to deal with heterosexual women."

I have very little commentary on this quote, but it makes me chuckle every time I read it.

(Also, while I like egalitarianism, I can totally see this being a thing. However, I'm suspecting that a lot of people with disagree with the conclusions of this study simply because they view them as sexist or reinforcing of gender roles or something.)

QU!RK1019: Withholding sex, huh? Like, "Look I have all this sex but I won't let you have any of it"?


This is a really astute point. Withholding sex presupposes that sex is a "thing" that one can "have" and one partner has it in abundance, and only needs to "share'

Whereas in reality sex is an activity that both partners ought to enjoy, and a man who wants to have more sex in his marriage needs to figure out what he's doing wrong that makes it undesirable for his wife.

NOW... the problem... is I think very often women are unreasonable in this respect. A man can turn himself on, or lets say really focus on sex. It's not like a man would be "oh, I wanted sex but then I started thinking about how the trash needs to be taken out." But I think women often expect men to turn them on, and remove all distractions... and are generally in a position of being more demanding (in terms of "if you want to have sex with me, then you need to do X Y and Z") than they have even 30 or 40 years ago. And it can get very emotionally manipulative.

Ultimately, the answer is a man shouldn't marry a woman who is unreasonable in this respect, and a woman shouldn't marry a man who sees sex has a thing he can have. But then most people would be single.

Folks also hold off on marriage due to lopsided debts as well.  No one wants to enter into a new level of relationship and realize that the tax savings are overshadowed by the fact they now owe hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Nearly everything that a marriage (in the US) has as 'benefits' can be found through other means with more flexibility that wehn entering into the agreement with the state.  Three persons in every marriage: bridge, groom, state.

But this is the point that Dan Savage makes over and over again.
OF course it is both sides. But there really are no surprised outcomes when one side isnt getting enough, whatever that is defined as.

1) they get it elsewhere
2) they leave
3) they are miserable and write to dan savage hoping that there is a magic cure.

If your partner sucks at sex, talk to them about it. most people are capable of learning and improving.
If they refuse to make the effort, change, talk about it, get help, etc, well, it is time to find a new sex partner.

/strangely enough, why not both? the friend that is wonderful and shares so many things that you both find important and a sex partner. TADA. Why try to solve two problems with one answer? Maybe the perfect answer is two solutions?

FTA: "masculine chores, like ... fixing the car"


Slightly off topic...  I'm an engineer at a large company (about 3000 employees at this site) and I would expect engineers to have the competence to tackle auto repairs.  Nope.  I'm the only man I know who even does his own oil changes.  I've never had my car to a garage for anything other than an inspection, and I'm by no means a master mechanic.  Fixing cars is not particularly difficult if you have the right tools.  My observation is that lots of men are pretty helpless when it comes to fixing the car.

LOL at the people who pay a dealer $75+ for a synthetic oil change.  AutoZone synthetic is $20/jug, and Amazon has Fram filters for $3 when you subscribe-and-save.  Do your own oil changes, and take that $50 you're saving and treat your spouse to a nice dinner.

I owe far more in taxes every year married filing jointly than I did single. This is because with two incomes, we are in a higher tax bracket.

The tax breaks come when you agree to give creepy Uncle Sam children to use as he sees fit in his nation-building games, I assume.
