My husband and I have limited sex 2-4 times yearly. It is very unsatisfying and frustrating. However, I love him and never ever complain as I know it's a very sensitive area for him. He still has the desire, but can't perform. Because he won't discuss any of this with me, I too have concerns that he will one day visit prostitutes to take care of his desires. The only thing I can think to do is pray. Any comments?View Thread
My husband's surgery was also 6 years ago. Never heard of spontaneous erections, especially after this many years post op. Once in a blue moon he'll have an erection and we'll have sex. He doesn't stay firm very long, and because he won't discuss any of this with me, I have no idea how he's able to even have an erection during those few occurances. Occasionally I've noticed a ring on his member, but I don't think he uses it all the time. BTW, I'm only talking about having sex 2-4 times a year.View Thread
Reading these comments helps me to realize that I'm not alone. Your 2nd to last paragraphs could have been written by me. I really love my husband and am certainly happy that God blessed him to survive this. But at the same time, I am really sad to see the virtual end of our sex life. He won't discuss it, but I know it bothers him deeply also.View Thread
