    Falling asleep during sex
    An_250467 posted:
    I am not sure how or why this is happening to me. I am 48 years old and have never in my life experienced this until about a year ago. I can be awake before, but as soon as we get started, I fall asleep. It is now getting to a point where it could cost me my marriage. I think part of it is that my husband seems to think that I get all this sleep, but I work from around 10 a.m. until 2 a.m., try to have sex between 2 and 5 a.m. which is when I am falling asleep, and going to bed around 6 a.m. So basically, I am sleeping from 2-3 a.m. until about 10 or 11 a.m. We have tried changing times of day, etc, but it does not seem to help. What can I do?

    Get more sleep. It sounds like exhaution is certainly playing a role in all of this.

    "I work from around 10 a.m. until 2 a.m"

    So you're working FOURTEEN hours per day? And you're wondering what's wrong? Cut back to a reasonable number of hours per day and things should sort themselves out fairly quickly. Sex is much lower on the pyramid of human needs than rest...
    There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.
