Long story short a little over 2 years no sex, I knew I was to blame so I worked on getting my drive back. I didn't say anything to him about this. I spoke to my doctor, had a full work up stopped taking my meds due to side effects. Still nothing, :scratchhead: so I bought myself a "friend" Hitachi magic wand to be exact :D well that plus a lot of hard work has done the trick! So Friday night I bit the bullet and threw myself out there. We had a great night, but now I feel I need to tell him about my friend... and I'm not sure how... I even bought an attachment for him.
Should I just ring it out during a romp or should I tell him about it?
HELP!!!!

Many years ago we had toys, I threw them out one night while I was pissed.
So I'm thinking it will be a happy surprise but I'm a little embarrassed but I'm hoping it will show how much I have put in to trying to save our marriage.

I like toys. In fact I bought that exact one for my wife. I would be fine if she used it on her own. She admitted that she tried it alone once, but really didn't get much out of it. She much prefers it when I'm the one controlling it.

That said, I'm not so sure I'd bring up the fact that you replaced him with a toy all while you were sexless with him. That would be pretty insulting. You've had sex one time after an absence of over 2 years. This is way too soon to throw that little tit-bit into his face.

COnsidering you had no sex for two years (from what i recall from your other thread) and only just now are starting to have sex again, bringing in the toys might be a bit much, a bit fast. Enjoy a few weeks of regular sex first before planning on heading further.

yes true I had no sex for 2 years and just the past maybe 3 months started working on myself.... I only got the toy 2 weeks ago when I wasn't getting anywhere by myself... I want to be close to him. I dont want to jump right in with the toy but I also dont want to hide it from him either... I also don't want to go back to how things were and I know I have a lot of control over that, since I'm the one who put us there to begin with.

I didn't replace him during that time i had no drive at all. I finally spoke to my doctor about it. I started off with just being mad so with holding, but then I just kinda forgot about it.... no urge was there. So after lots of testing and counseling. This is where I am.


Buying that for myself was way out of my comfort zone so was using it alone, I feel guilty. ( I was raised that you do NOT do that and sex is only for procreating. Thus is why I needed the counseling!) However I feel it also helped bring things back.

And it wasn't only one time this weekend :D

OP,

Does your hubs know about everthing else you did to get your drive back?

If so, at some point tell him that you did buy the toy and as part of your continued "recovery" you'd love to have him use it with you

For rihjt now though, leave the toy out of it and concentrate re-connecting with him alone on a physical level for the next few weeks

I'm not sure that he is aware of how hard I worked on improving myself to get to where I am now... and I want him to know, but I don't want him to think I'm looking for something in return.
I can't imagine he thinks I just flipped a switch and bam all is OK. Then again you never know.

No we have never spoke of it. I knew I was losing him and this marriage so I knew I had to do something.

Start slowly telling him about how you wanted to get back on track for both of you. So you saw a doctor about your low drive. Start that way with some small talk about it.. then answer his questions. it might all come out at once or it might take a few conversations.

No No, He could NOT handle it! HaHa, I said handle! Of course tell him and show him. What is the problem? Do not buy something Black and 12 inches long and call it your new boyfriend. Just say it feels good and you love him for putting up with you for two years. Good Luck and MC and HN David

Ok so date night was last night but it didn't go so well. He was to busy playing with his phone, he wouldn't put it down I wound up just sitting there at 1point I went to the restroom and he didn't even know I was gone. Needless to say I'm doing all this work to trying and save this but getting really pissed that he isn't noticing. So he still doesn't know what I have done to improve myself for us. I tried to discuss it but all I got was mm hmm, ok and I knew he wasn't listening that's when I just stopped. At home it's the same he is on his couch with iPad and completely zoned out. Any advice?
