I understand your confusion and grief over the lack of sexual intimacy with your husband. This sounds like a possible form of sexual anorexia, the compulsive avoidance of giving and receiving sexual love. I recommend finding a sex therapist in your area. Here is a link to help you with your search: http>//iitap.com/find_csat.cfm
If your husband is unwilling to attend couples counseling, it would be beneficial for you to find a sex therapist for yourself as the partner of a sexual anorexic.
You might also consider 12-Steps programs, particularly Al-Anon and CoDA which focus on partner issues. There are also 12-Step support groups for partners of Sex Addicts (including anorexics) such as COSLAA and COSA. An online search for each group will give you the meeting list for your area.
Any work that you can do for yourself will provide clarity and give you tools for establishing intimacy and healthy boundaries in every relationship in which you choose to participate.View Thread

Just before I'm able to orgasm, my brain starts to think, and over think, and I literally stop the orgasm from happening. I can't seem to get past that fencetop. What can I do to reach that peak of excitement and then allow myself to feel the satisfaction?View Thread

I have had this annoying discharge for about 4 years. I wear pads 24/7. Recently had d & c. My uterine lining was too thick & a couple of polyps were found. Most of time it is brownish & has odor. Not sure if it's vaginal or possibly anal. Also on 2 different occasions, about 2 - 3 tbsp of liquid have come out towards end of intercourse. I don't even feel it coming out. This is sooo annoying! I'm ready to get all new parts. Has anyone else experienced this?View Thread
Excellent article about female genital pain - something called vulvodynia - that affects about 10-15% of women. Some women experience pain during sex. Others may experience pain during daily activities such as sitting in a chair, riding a bicycle or sitting at one's desk. You can learn additional information about vulvodynia through www.NVA.org.View Thread

I have been married for 23 years with my childhood sweetheart. For the past 16 years he has created, foster and strenghen an emotional relationship with my sister all while neglecting our relationship. He says he love both of us the same and I cannot accept this. I know that my sister also has feeling for him because she told me so 5 years ago. She is 37, unmarried and has never had a serious relationship with anyone. She began having feelings towards my husband when she was 20. He also claims that he has never had sex with her, but I do not believe that. He is very confused right now. Should I just ask him for a divorce or give him some time to sort things out. I asked him what he wants and I dont get a straight answer from him. I am emotionally a mess since he confess his love for her last week.View Thread
I have had bladder infections since I was 12 years old. But now I have sex one or two times with my husband and I have an infection. I have done everything that I have been told, from showering before, wipe from front to back, pee afterwords, etc. I is so frustrating! My husband feels bad that I end up with and infection. He even went to the doctor to make sure there wasn't something going on with him. My doctor had me on a low dose antibotic and it seemed to help for awhile, then I was diagnoised with breast cancer three years ago. I had a mastectomy and chemo. I've been getting reports back, no cancer! Ya! I've been on tamoxifen and have to be on it for another 2 years to put me through menopause. I never had a yeast infection in my life before the chemo. But now, I'm also dealing with them on a regular basis because I am always getting bladder infections, then take antibotic for the bladder and then I have to treat a yeast infections. A viscious cycle! I have tried supplements to help with the bladder infections and the yeast infections, but nothing seems to help! My doctor tells me that this is normal and I can't do anything for it. Does anyone have any advice!
We have been married 30 years with no children. All I want to have a normal sex life with my husband without having all the infections!
