    of desperation for anyone's affection or even little attention. We had sex 6 times since April 2012 and only because I asked . I'm only 35. Is it wrong to have a physical affair if he did behave like a husband and took care of my non financial needs I wouldn't even consider...

    Ok, What Happened Later

    I dont know if you've seen my other story but I left my husband a year later after I wrote it. It was very difficult to do, but after 10 years of a sexless marriage I couldn't go on. It was awful, every day my self-esteem took such a beating. Every day a new pain.  You know how...

    It feels like all of you ladies are talking about my story. I thought I was the only one, tired of walking around blaming myself, thinking something is wrong with me, not feeling attractive or desireable. My husband blames the medication he takes, won't take the sex pills, says...

    My husband and I are both 30 and have been together for 6 years. Early on in the relationship I knew sex was going to be an issue. He just didn't (and still doesn't) have the drive I do. Actually, he has no sex drive at all. I believe he would be happy not having sex again. But...
