I grew up in my career as a salesman and learned that the rules of algebra apply to everything in life. Everything negative can be made into a positive if you look at it from the other side of the equation. For those in a HD/LD situation to where one spouse has a higher desire for sex than the other, the lower desire spouse usually claims that the higher desire spouse is manipulating the relationship for more sex.

What do you do, because admit it, if it could be done we would indeed do it? Odds are that is what was happening. Also known as the "covert contract" of doing something nice and expecting something (hope it is sexual) in return!

If I have learned one thing it would be the power of validation! If your spouse accuses you of doing something manipulative to get more sex, allow yourself to get caught! Even if it is NOT the case, pretend that that was exactly what you were doing! THIS will be very validating to the LD partner because this person will finally feel validated in feeling how they feel. NOW... here is the important part and where the algebra comes in handy. Claim that you are BEHIND on your ability to manipulate your spouse for sex and that whatever it is you were doing is a partial payment to try and catch up for sex that has already occurred. Then complain that past sex has been way too good and that it has been making the problem worse and that you will never be caught up and actually get to do manipulative things that will result in more sex. You will alway be behind and playing catch up by doing nice things to try to even the score.

Then look at your spouse and ask if you can increase your credit limit!

So what happened here is that you took something that would historically be a point of argument, acknowledged it and twisted it into a compliment! I did this to my wife the other day and she is all too aware of my modem operatum, but she smiled at me and said, "looking at things that way might actually work for you and get you more sex!"

Cheers,
Badsanta

great ideas.

i have two corollaries to this:
1) often LD women CAN be tricked into getting horny. as in playing new age music, lighting some candles, massaging her whole body with scented oils....then after turning her on, then start massaging he private bits, and often you have turned her on enough to want sex and actually enjoy it. just expect the next day to have to do it all over again.

or

2) employ some of the psychological tricks they advise a guy to use on youtube, in videos titled like: "how to seduce an older woman". There is a complex series of flattery and ignoring her that gets the female mind wanting you to pursue her....

It’s not manipulative if you are giving Mrs.BadSanta what she needs. 😆

Sometimes wives aren’t aware (consciously) how bad they need us. Our affection, validation, and prowess (shall we say) can’t just be found anywhere. This is like the only thing wives somehow fail to articulate. 😆

They make us think it’s just US that need them… don’t buy it! 😂

Durn, I'll agree with you on that 👍

Yes. Look at the number of swingers on this board alone. There's a whole section of society for whom sex is like sneezing or stretching... it's a thing that feels good. Their partner is a masturbatory aid, there's no spiritual or emotional connection between them. They're no closer to their sex partner than they are to a tennis buddy. Outside of sex they might like the person, but sex has no role in any emotional connection they have with someone.
Define what degree of affection. Likely pertinent.
