Whoops. I meant to answer Bare about you C.

Bare is right about you. You are the genuine item, yes you are.

Default When sex is dwindling down

Sorry to change the subject, but I have an issue. What do you do when your husband isn't interested in sex as much as your are? We've been recently married for 5 years. He stays up at night watching TV then comes to bed around 3:00 A.M. He gets up before I do.

I assume you've talked to him about it. Since you're both retired, how about afternoons? I'm not sure what age you are, but losing interest in carnal pursuits is not uncommon, and the makers of Viagra are laughing all the way to the bank.

I thought it was such a considerate thing to do. It really boosted my morale. It's the kind of thing I think about doing, but then life gets busy and time passes. CFrance is the real deal!

Any chance he would go get some testosterone?

That's a good suggestion. I don't think Viagara works unless the desire is there. At any rate, consulting a doctor would be the way to go, if he is willing.

It's amazing to me the friendships I've made through TOTV, back when I joined the website in 2007, and continuing through today. I've had great luck in meeting some truly wonderful women. As a matter of fact, I'm expecting one of them to visit me in Canada this summer, how great is that!

Some of the people that I consider friends, are people I've yet to meet! There are some women who attract me like a shining beacon, simply because I know that they share my love of animals.

Anyway, the other day I received a card mailed to me in Canada, and a Canadian $10 bill from CFrance, whom I've never met. She was in Michigan packing up her house and she found some Canadian money. And she was kind enough to take pity on me for all my online whining about my July knee replacement. She enclosed the money in a get-well card. What a nice surprise, and such a morale booster, right when I needed it. What a wonderful, considerate friend she is! I can hardly wait to meet her.
It was a truly lovely thing to do. Cudos! I love how nice people are here. You really get to know people's hearts without being confused by the 'outter shell' of people. I love that. Sort of how a dog sees people- heart only. (I mean no disrespect to non-animal people but animal people will know what I am talking about).
How DOES anyone get someone's address or email here in a discreet way? Or does one just have to ask outright?
Bare, hope you are feeling better every day.

Different people just have different levels of need. If this is a change for him maybe you could talk about it or get him to discuss the change with his doctor (men usually aren't too keen on this). If he goes to bed that late and gets up that early (before you) how does he function during the day on so little sleep? Maybe that is part of the problem. He must be exhausted.

I PM'd Bare and said I ran across something I'd like to send her, and she trusted me enough to give me her address. Now that privacy is such a big issue, I would never ask a third party for someone's telephone number or address. Instead I would ask the third party to ask that person to contact me.

Bu we do kinda get to know one another here, fer sure.

This is a very difficult subject to discuss, there are so many issues involved and being married only five years must make it very uncomfortable for him, as well as you. If you search the internet there are some excellent sites which give medical reasons for this problem. Of course, the best thing for him to do is to talk to his doctor and get a complete and thorough medical check up to see if there is an underlying medical problem. BUT, again, difficult for him because men do not like to admit that their "manhood" is going ........................

Cool Sex Talk

I try to talk to him about it and he gets on the defensive. Granted we are getting older, but when we first met we couldn't keep our hands off each other! He has a habit of staying up late and getting up before me. I tried to talk to him about that and he got mad.

There are doctors who specialize in this area. However I doubt most men would go willingly to talk about their lack of sex drive. I'd think that most men who go to a sex doctor are given an ultimatum by their partner. It's probably the least favorite topic for any man to discuss.

There was a movie a couple of years back, I didn't see it. I think it starred Meryl Streep. I think it was about this subject. Anyone know the movie I mean? If you rented this movie, it might get some conversation going. On the other hand, it might just really annoy your husband.

You probably have two choices: either decide you can live with the situation and be happy, or talk your husband into seeing a medical professional.
