It depends on the person/s involved. My opinion is a resounding no. My sex drive is pretty high and I am extremely adventurous. I'v had partners say things like " I wont do doggy style , I'm not a dog" . People like this have no place being with me . Takes the word prude to another level.

I don't think so. I'm in the same situation my husband isn't interested in sex and will only have sex if I initiate it.

I'm in the same boat, my wife isn't bothered that much about sex. Very frustrating, and causes a lot of tension...

Yes it does. My only relief is masturbation. When we do talk about it he says he's gotten complacent about sex and basically if I want it I'm to ask him for it. That doesn't do much for me because it makes me feel as if he wants sex but not necessarily from me. Have thought about a boyfriend but am a bit too 'chicken' for that.

Could be a bit of a sensitive point, try guile, persuasion and open discussion but NEVER, NEVER THREAT!!!! Remember how long you have been together and the fun (probably some hard work too) that has gone into the partnership and take it from there.IdeaSmile

Been there, done that, got the tee-shirt and badge and a few scars too!!!

Thanks for the advice. It's hard to discuss with him without getting emotional. He's very cut off emotionally and doesn't talk unless pressed. Sorry for getting heavy but thanks for the advice.

It can work.
My husband has a very high sex drive while mine is fairly low and always has been,we have been together for 31 years.

\although I must add that I do allow him to have sex with other women.

I think me sleeping with other men might be the solution. Not sure if either one of us could handle that though. Hehe.
