Sex Quickie: Communication As Foreplay

CommunicationI’ve been married long enough to know that sometimes people fall in to sex lulls. When time goes by and neither person makes the move and the next thing you know its been two weeks since you’ve been intimate.

The best way to resolve this? Communicate. Say it out loud. “Wow, it’s been two weeks since we’ve done it. We need to fix that.” Sometimes bringing it out in the open is all you need to do to get it going again.

I had a similar conversation with my husband the other day.

Me: “You know, you haven’t gone down on me recently. What’s up with that?”

Him: “Well, it hasn’t been made available to me.”

Good point. I’ve since made it available to him and the issue has been corrected.

Yes, it can be that simple.

  1. Yes, that happens…..and you’re right, communication is important–on both ends. I speak up when I notice the distance. And then it gets rectified. LOL.

  2. ( Male input)! I’m 68 & seem to want it as much as ever. What’s up with that? Former wife,(55) had almost no interest., even though we got along well between what I would call a major communication issue . Loved her a lot but had to bring it up to get any even on a monthly basis. We still love each other. But we couldn’t get together on the issue. (Major road block). It’s tough contacting @ this age. My heart goes out to you,ladies!

    • Hey Rick, Thanks for stopping by. And thanks for your input. MiddleSexy is always curious about the male POV!
