I too got all hot and bothered by the thread title.
K, leaving now
Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry
From what I know about this relationship, the main reason he is with her is because she is providing the roof over their head, so any financial problems related to the house will fall on her shoulders, not on his. I remember he and I having a little discussion about male gold diggers some years ago, and I really think that's what he is up to here. He told me once that she has "issues with intimacy" (although he won't say what they are), and he recently admitted to me that there still isn't any physicality there.
Hmm, well, I know two married couples who have sexless marriages. In one case, it's the wife who doesn't want sex and in the other, it's the husband. To the best of my knowledge, finances, positive or negative, don't have a lot to do with why the relationships go on. There are a lot of things that hold relationships together, and some of those things are there.
But it all seems very lonely and cold to me--not so much because of lack of sex, per se, but because of what that lack means to the person who isn't getting any but wants it.

It's absolutely none of my business but I wonder what was going on with Jennifer's ex-husband. My first guess was that he is a closeted gay man but then the article mentioned that they had sex three times of week while they were engaged.
My friend's husband is 12 years older than her(She's 45 and he's 57). My personal opinion is a whole another story. So many women marry older men for whatever reasons and don't think about what happens sexually when you're 50 and he's 62 or alot more older than you.
Anyway, my friend is really in her sexual prime. She's in the best shape of her life, looks fabulous, libido is good and husband has erectile abd libido issues. He doesn't want to seek help, doesn't want to talk about it; just tells her that "sex isn't everything" and she should just get use to have a sexless marriage as they age. They havent had sex in 3 years.
In my opinion his behavior is completely unacceptable for a 20 year marriage. I support her, listen to her and encourage her to do what's best for HER. Also,
he's really telling her to divorce him or cheat on him.
I think for women, we allow so many things to effect us sexually or sexual desire. If the lack of libido is due a mental issue or depression than it can be helped. However, I believe many women suffer from a lack of desire towards their partner which may not be helped even with therapy.

When I first read the title I was like "Wow, they started at beads and bypassed plugs completely? What a trooper!"
I'm almost 48, had a complete hysterectomy 7 years ago am STILL waiting for the decreased sex drive that the doc said to expect. Never happened. It's like I'm perpetually 19 on the inside!
This idea smacks of being dreamed up in a committee meeting, and they drew beads to put the idea to a brief test to give it the barest modicum of authenticity. Sort of like Eat, Pray, Love.
Not to give TMI, but for most women, if we're not in the mood, not only are you not in the mood, but it hurts. Sometimes A LOT. If sex becomes something you associate with pain, you sure as hell aren't going to want to do it more, and I can't see it helping the relationship.

So am I the only one who clicked on the link at work without a second thought? (When was the last time there was something NSFW in Time magazine, anyway?)
But the actual article was offensive, which is worse.
