While I agree with some of what you said, I do think that MOST of the time A + B will equal C. However, there are exceptions. Tnttim has shared his successes that some of us may find help. And I think that some of what he did will help us. It is up to us to determine what helps and what does not.

To throw it all out because every situation is different is preposterous.

And I have found some things that have worked for me. Sharing our successes is why others find success. Not everyone will have the same success with the same solutions, but it is quite likely that many will have the same results.

At least you are feeling positive about it.

First give her time to accept these changes are really gonna stick. My wife says she still feels pressured even though I never pressure her. Sorry bud but old habits die hard.

I'm glad to hear about the change in attitude. Now you have to make her horny. Before the drought what got her in the mood? Or try to remember a day when she was horny out of the blue. She has a trigger and you can find it if you experiment a little. For women its usually an emotional trigger, maybe seeing you dressed up because you normally don't dress up. Whatever it is its something you can mimic guaranteed. A good one that has worked in the past for me is saying "you keep on trying to seduce me, play your cards right and ill let you test out your skills." the point you want to convey is that you are hard to get, you have standards and she has to meet them to get sex from you. Don't argue, it works.

Okay if your gonna divorce why don't you find a new woman first. Maybe you'll find out its been you all along.

Ouch.

It may be neither and may simply be the two of them together.

And getting another woman first will guarantee at least one thing...giotto will find sexual happiness outside of his marriage and cause greater damage than if he simply separated and divorced.

she was never horny "out of the blue"... she asked for sex (i.e. initiating) twice in 25 years... trigger? It's the one I'm going to pull soon... on myself... only joking...

Ah, ah... there's plenty of women flirting with me, but my wife doesn't get to see it... I don't want to sound arrogant, but I don't think I would have a problem "pulling".... lol

don't worry, James, I would never do that... I just feel a touch under-appreciated at the moment...

It is like we had a time machine and traveled back to when we first met. When the feelings start to subside, I just use his technique and they eventually come back again. 5 months and counting, which from what I read from your posts, trumps any technique any of us has used in the past. BTW, I am a firm disbeliever in MC, I think if you need professional help to teach you to love then you might as well get a D, but that's just my 2 cents on it.
Could you send me the e-books as well? grahamwedding2009@gmail.com. Thanks!

Gentlemen,

IME, if the woman in your life really loves you, she will get upset with you if you don't have sex with her when she's "in the mood."

This happens not just with my wife, currently, but has happened with prior gf's. (Not always obviously LOL, they certainly didn't all "love" me!)

I simply don't know what to say about being in a relationship with a woman who never ever expresses either an actual or even a theoretical desire to have sex with her man.

I don't see how such a woman could possibly be considered to "love" her husband in any truly meaningful, authentic sense of the word.

I saw this article and thought of you guys on this thread. Honestly, I just don't know you all hang in there. I don't know if I would be strong enough to stay with someone under the circumstances - particularly the circumstances in this article, where women actively seek out excuses not to have to have sex.

thanks for that... I haven't read the whole thing yet, but it sounds terribly familiar...

I'll paraphrase some parts of the article, and show you where the book would help.

And the reason for this rather bizarre performance? Lissa would go to almost any lengths not to have sex with her husband.

He says that women get in the habit of rejecting men because they always approach them for sex at bad times. The women is not in the mood and she rejects him, after a while it turns into an unconscience habit, like over eating, biting your nails, etc. The women in the articles husband must have been very pushy for sex because she developed an elaborate act. The husband could have stopped approaching her for sex in such a weak manner, and then get her in the habit of accepting his invitations.

Clearly, many married women are feeling pressure to have more sex than they'd like and, worse, feeling that there might be something wrong with them. But what if there was nothing wrong with them at all?

The husband is probably reinforcing these feelings by telling her she has a low libido, or telling her it's her fault. Again the wife feels obligated to have sex, now sex is just another chore for her.


but I'm always cautious about being too touchy-feely, as I don't want it to lead to other things

Now she doesn't even want to cuddle because the husband has turned every cuddling session into a gateway to sex. So he expects sex when she wants to cuddle. Ever wonder why your wife doesn't want to cuddle, or doesn't want a back rub, or tells you "yes you can rub my back, but no sex." She now associates back rubbing, cuddling, affection to attempts for sex.

'Poor Andrew is always telling me that I should go to the GP because there always seems to be something wrong with me.'

Ouch, her husband is telling her it's her fault, and she even calls him poor Andrew like she feels sorry for him. Ladies, do any of you get turned on by a man you feel sorry for?


After all, surely that would mean they would be more likely to remain faithful to the father of their children, not finding other men alluring. It would also mean they would focus more intently on nurturing their offspring.

whoever wrote this article needs to come to LS and read some threads. How far from the truth is the above statement.


Lissa pinpoints the decline of her libido as occurring after her second child was born 14 years ago.

Now the article contradicts itself, because they say women in their 40's but it started 14 years ago making her 26.

'From an endocrine (hormonal) point of view, there's no change in the levels of the three main female sex hormones oestrogen, progesterone and prolactin after a woman has children.

Good old science confirms that women have the capabilities, but there is a mystery in why more women are rejecting their husbands. Maybe it's the husband's attitude and attempts at getting sex.

But, more than that, suddenly sex felt like such a chore. I just couldn't be bothered.

Yet more evidence that husband turned sex into a chore.


My 25 year old friend is going through the same thing with his girlfriend. They have no kids, and hardly any stress, but yet they have sex 1-3 times a month. I gave him some advise and he is starting to see a little bit of a change, but he is not fully commited to what I'm telling him. He, like most of us married men did the same thing that ended up killing her sex drive.

Thanks for posting the article

Ironically, tnttim, your summary and conclusions simply can be summarized in one sentence....

"It is the husband's fault that his wife does not like sex."

And hence....

"If the husband changes, then he will have abundant sex."

While that may be true in some cases, it certainly is not true in all cases and I doubt in even most cases. Many other reasons were given with other women including work stress, children stress, housework stress, lack of personal time stress. Point being is...I could simply say that stress is the reason, but I would be missing the many other aspects.

My conclusion is that in Lissa's case, it is the result of a failing marriage which cannot be blamed only on the husband. Lissa is going out of her way to avoid discussing the issue with her husband. If she loved him as much as she says and he loved her, then she would do what she could to fix her marriage. But she is happy without sex and he is not. She does not really care for her husband and her marriage as much as she enjoys her current life. Her position is very selfish and totally goes against the commitment she made to her husband. I have no doubt that he could make changes, too, but I don't see that one sided change from him will cause huge improvements.

Nothing will change until her world is rocked. Even if he changes, she will assume that he only wants sex. So it may cause some short term success, but unless she learns to empathize with her husband and learns to realize that her avoidance of sex and lack on interest to change is actually a disrespect of her husband and show how shallow her love really is for him...well, this marriage will never change.

I respect your conclusion that change in the husband's behavior will cause an increase in her libido, but I don't think that this case will be that simple...nor will many of the cases they cited.

LB, thanks for the article.

well, I do think Lissa's being extremely selfish... she comes across like "she can't be bothered"... what kind of love is she showing to her husband? From personal experience, though, I know it's very difficult to turn on a woman who has zero libido. In this case it's much more a mental thing... I must say I contributed to our "impasse" by putting too much pressure on my wife to have sex. She now says she associates it with something negative and she hates that. She also has mental issues, so the combination of the two has been lethal for our sex life. She has a huge mental block about it. And as I said before, if I don't hint, we never has sex... we've had sex once in 45 days recently, but last night she promised me... obviously she is thinking about me, but our "once e week" deal is turning into the usual twice a month, if I'm lucky... I'm not putting much emphasis on sex now, I just can't be bothered myself now! So, let's see what happens (probably nothing... ).

Of course she's not going to reveal that in a magazine article, using her real name and picture.

But that is UNdoubtedly what is really going on.
just a question, out of curiosity... do you think that all the women who don't want or don't feel like having sex with their husbands are cheating?

My wife did, gradually, after our second child, at 33, and now completely at 47... have you ever been in a "sexless" marriage? Have you ever talked to a woman who's lost her sex drive? What do you know about these situations?
