    I Have A Boring Unfulfilling Marriage...

    "I Need More Time"

    So... I mostly saved myself for marriage. I had big ideas that my one-day wife would appreciate that and think that I was a better man for it. I figured that my soulmate would answer all of my questions and explore the incredibly exciting world of sexuality with me. I...

    I've been away on a business trip the last two

    days and return tomorrow night. My wife is terrified at home that I am cheating on her... I suppose her concerns are justified since we openly acknowledged to each other that I am not getting from her what I need and crave, and that I will die never knowing. Add to that...
