    I'm tired of people on here complaining

    that their partner won't have sex with them. Sex doesn't just happen because one person gets turned on. You can't treat someone like a doormat all week and expect them feel warm and intimate towards you. Maybe if you treated your spouse/partner with a bit of respect and made...

    Just a bit of encouragement.

    ... Even if your partner does not want to have sex with you, that does not mean that no one else does. Frankly, the fact that you have been willing to stay in a sexless marriage/relationship is evidence that you are a great person. No one should have sex if he/she does not...

    Technically, "sexless" is a bit extreme.

    But it's definitely not a healthy sexual relationship. My wife and I are 38 and 39, far too young to be dealing with natural loss of sex drive. And yet, sometimes we'll go months with nothing. And it's not like one is horny and the other one refuses. We just both don't seem to...
