Menopause and Sex
Petlady1106 posted:
I am almost 53 and female who is going through menopause, I am
having issues with my sex drive or libido. My husband recently
purchased me a vibrator to see if that would help. My problem is I have
tried one before and I don't know how to relax and to use my
imagination while using it, also I am nervous or feel a little embarrassed by doing it or even talking about it. How do I overcome
these issues and relax more so that I can make a better loving partner for my husband. I have never been in this type of relationship before.
I feel very inadequite.

How do I overcome being embarrassed to talk to my husband about the sex toy he purchased for me to help my low sex drive while I am going
through menopause? I am not experienced with this type of situation.
