  2. Tramadol and Sex Drive

    General Relationship Discussion
    I've been tramadol for knee pain for some time and I think it might be affecting my sex drive. The reason is that I have had diminished sex drive for quite a while. I just figured it was because I'm getting older. Then last week I ran out of my Tramadol and had to wait 3 days before the doctor...
  3. Sexual Awareness Switch On?

    Sex in Marriage
    My husband and I have been together since we were 22, he is turning 41 next week. The last 8 - 10 years have been repetitive and boring in bed, and getting to the point where I could count on one hand how many times we were together in a year. Sad. Since I turned 40, 6 months ago, I have had...

    I am worn out and heartbroken. My handsome husband of ten years, who I love so much, has never had a huge sex drive, but it's reached an all-time low. I am devastated and desperate- and he thinks everything is fine! Plus - oh, I feel so awful saying this- he is bad in bed. :( Please help, or...
  5. Decreased female sex drive -Lexapro? Age?

    Sex in Marriage
    Okay female and male both 42. My wife seems to have a decreased sex drive, She says her body does not work like that anymore. When we do have sex it is good. Often much easier for her when she has a few drinks. We have a loving relationship and no other real issues. She says when i...
  6. His sex drive is lower

    Sex in Marriage
    Through research I see that I am not alone on the issue of being a wife with a higher sex drive than her husband. We are trying to work through this issue and thus far have made less progress than I had hoped for considering the years we've been working on it. I've run through emotions of...

  8. BF is LD, I am HD - very close to having affair

    Sex in Marriage
    I know cheating is wrong. Just wanted to get that out first. In this rl for 4.5 years. The 1st year was great, lots of sex and sexy sex. Then, we moved in together and the sex became more infrequent. Fast forward to now and if I don't initiate, I don't get. I've told him time and time again...

    Hello. I have turned to the internet to find some answers. My wife and I have only been married for 2 month but lived together for 2 1/2 years before we were married. I am an artist and have little background in psychology. I have always been interested with the human mind. I went through severe...
  10. Wife has zero sex drive

    Sex in Marriage
    Noticed the frustrated posts on this subject...I am kind of at the end of my rope on this subject. I dearly love my wife, she is the nicest, sweetest person I have ever met. Three kids, all grown now. 25 years of marriage and things were well for about 15 years. Then breast cancer struck...

  12. Why do I have NO libido?!

    Sex in Marriage
    I love my husband very much and we have great sex. The problem is that I have very little desire to have sex. Once we do, and I'm aroused, it's amazing! I feel that sometimes there is a lack of affection on a daily basis and when when we are, it's when he wants to have sex so I pull away...

I don't want to leave my wonderful partner, but I really cannot live another 20 years without a love life. So I need tips - more than ideas, though. I would like people to post success stories here.

  15. My Wife Has No Libido And Doesn't Feel There Is A Real Problem

    Sex in Marriage
    OK, so I know there are a LOT of threads everywhere on the Web about wives losing sex drive, etc....It seems common around 40, especially. My situation isn't terribly different, but it is in a way. To explain a little, my wife and I have been married for 20 years, 5 kids, with the youngest...
  16. Hub's bad knees= No more intimacy for me

    Sex in Marriage
    I'm completely baffled. I've had 18 years to get used to his lesser drive- (I knew it was going to be a rough issue when we were 22 and he would rather watch TV than roll around with me). Raising kids & paying bills sucks the life, and the desire right out of some people (not me). I just never...

    My husband and I have been married almost 2 years. I'm not satisfied with our love life... I'll explain... I am 5 years younger than he- he's 28, We were married right before I turned 21. We became physical a little before we were married, and it was exciting and romantic. I loved the pace...
