But slowly, over the course of six years, our physical relationship dwindled to nothing. I buried it because I had no idea how to talk about it, let alone fix it. Those years were pre-internet and pre-social media; I couldnt simply tap my problem into Google and find answers.
Its agonising to be in a relationship full of love and lacking in sex. Its a tragedy, in fact, or it was for me. And a sexless relationship carries a lot of shame. Just as having too much sex is taboo, so is having none.
I kept quiet. Instead, my repressed sexuality took on a life of its own, and I dreamed of sexy trysts with other men, and, being a writer, these dreams went down on paper in the form of a novel, The Tryst, published later this week.
Of course, we split up, eventually. When a couple isnt having sex, especially a younger couple, the frustrated energy has to go somewhere. It usually ends up going outside the relationship, and it did.
He had an affair galling, given our situation and that was the end of things. I was 41. I ran away and regrouped. What followed was a decade of sexual seeking and exploration, a campaign of self-education.
My mission was never again to fall into this no-sex relationship trap. What had happened and why? I was determined to find out. I allowed myself to be a guinea pig, and took many bold and courageous leaps. In doing so I tried everything, and today, aged 52, Im much more sexually confident.

The article states half of marriages have sex 10 or less times per yer. Yikes. Those mgtow guys look smarter each day.
having too much sex is taboo, so is having none.
NASA needs couples like this for the trip to Mars!
Could be a good thread.
IDK mgtow guys?
Did you miss the part where her husband cheated on her?
Stay in shape
Take care of yourself
Have date nights and date weekends
Some do it by choice so they don’t have to testify against each other.
Marriage about more than sex.
I missed the part about why she wasn’t happy with her prior sex life. But I did she read she wasn’t into her husband in “that” way. As he “fathered” her.
Regardless, she whored it up for 11 yearsh post divorce and now proudly tells the world how great it was. How many 35-40 year old women are approaching a mid life crisis and are going to read this article? These stories create more broken homes.
mgtow = “Men going their own way”
Youtube has some videos from such groups.
Men Going Their Own Way.
You get married because you love someone, and think they make the world a better place. You share your soul with them, and you work to be better and more purposeful people together.
Sex is an appetite, like eating. What makes it different from eating is love - which, if you are blessed, also results at some point in a child. Otherwise it’s just another itch to be scratched. Just like letting your appetite for food control you leads to health consequences and obesity, letting your sexual appetite control you similarly hurts and diminishes you. Hearing or reading the thoughts of women like this one makes me sad, and it makes them seem very small and shallow. Would want no part of any women even remotely like this.
It sounds as though you are taking her story personally. I really don’t care what she did.
Men Going Their Own Way, MGTOW. It’s a growing phenomena. They preach that marriage in the west is toxic. Finding a good woman you can trust is statistically too low to be deemed worth the risks of divorce. Which would entail financial ruin and emotional heartache.
There are many places online, below is just one. You can also type that into the youtube search engine.
"Oh Bill, you're so close. I'm getting that old feeling, again."
"Forget it Hillary, Presidents don't have time for sex."
"My intern, Monica, and I have to go over some things,later."
I care that she is sending a message to other women to follow her example in exploring your sexuality. She must be a slow learner as it took her 11 years to date.
BREAKING NEWS; She got laid last night.
