Let's be honest, sex is very important in relationships. And not having enough of it can be a real problem.
In this Strawberry Letter, a young woman writes in because she's not having enough sex with her husband. She said she's tried everything to get her husband in the mood and at this point, she feels as though he's no longer attracted to her. What is a girl to do?
Take a look:
Hi Steve and Shirley,
I really need your advice. I'm a 32-year-old woman and my husband is 37. When we first got married, our sex life was amazing. About three years into our marriage, intimacy became an issue. My husband started making excuses for not wanting to do it. He never wanted to have sex anymore. When we did do it, he would just lie there like he forgot what to do. So I came out of my comfort zone to try to get him excited. I would turn on porn. Talk dirty to him. Go to bed naked, get my hair done regularly and even dress sexy. Nothing worked. After a while I started to feel unattractive and unwanted. I questioned his commitment to me and our relationship and he swore to me that he still loved me and that he didn't think we had a problem with our sex life. I suspected that he was cheating and I snooped through his things but I never found anything so I started planning to have an affair with a guy that I worked with. I started staying out and entertaining this man at his house but that didn't work out for me so I ended that fling. My husband could feel that something wasn't right. When I stopped coming in late, he changed. He was all over me and we were having lots of sex. Everything was great. Then about seven months ago we fell into another dry spell. I CAN'T TAKE THIS ANYMORE. I'm only 32-years-old and my husband is not handling his business in the bedroom. I'm screaming on the inside. What's a woman to do?
It seems as though her husband is a loyal and loving guy. What could be the problem?
