What a Great Experience this group has become. The kinship in Brotherhood. There is such a diverse range of topics. This is the place we can be as open as we want to be... Everyone is welcome to join, but it is not a place to Cruise. It's for sharing sexual questions and comments among men.
Wife with low sex drive

An_242262 posted:
My wife is reluctant to discuss her lack of sex-drive and despite my urging, unwilling to discuss with her doctor. One factor is shyness or embarassment. The other is that as a cancer survivor, her body has been changed by the chemo and drugs. I am trying to be patient and sensitive while not making her uncomfortable. But, I need much more sex and want her to be happy as well. Any advice on coaxing her to inquire of medical help?

If I were you I'd just tell her that that marriage is not sexually satisfying for you and the reasons why. Tell her that you are seeking counseling and ask her to join you. If she doesn't you really need to do it for yourself.

You and a good counselor are the best ones to determine what to do next. There are lot of facts about your relationship that we don't know and, without that information, no one could possibly make a well-tailored suggestion.
