*If I were her man, I’d feel like sh*t right now.
An unidentified woman admits there were signs that her husband was a sex addict. They married only a few months after dating, and both were in the sex-all-the-time mode. Because of this, she ignored what would eventually become a real drag: No intimacy. Only sex.
From a too-much-sex, not-enough-intimacy point of view, this perspective is not as rare as one might think.
As reported by Ree, “The (Ree)lationship Guide” and according to an iDateDaily.com article, the woman explains how she and her now-ex-husband enjoyed the excitement of sεx in the initial stages of their relationship, but as their fast-paced relationship continued to develop — they dated and married in the same year — it became evident to her that the man she married was attempting to “own” her body.
“My ex-husband truly believed he owned my body and that I was in the wrong if I ever denied him access,” the unidentified writer wrote. ”When I wouldn’t give in to his advances because I was friggin’ tired from taking care of little kids, or not feeling well, or just because I didn’t feel like it right then, he would coldly turn his back on me and heave deep sighs of put-upon-ness, and I would cry myself to sleep because I just wanted to feel loved without having to have sεx,” the unidentified woman wrote.
She goes on to explain how she ignored signs of his over-abundant sex drive.
“One of the red flags I had ignored early on in our relationship was his comment that there was no point in touching if it wasn’t going to lead to sεx.”
Now how many times have women heard this? Lets face it, not all men appreciate romance, cuddling, holding and whispering “sweet nothings” in a woman’s ear. Moreover, according to Florida State University social psychologist Roy Baumeister, most men may feel this way:
”Men want sεx more often than women at the start of a relationship, in the middle of it, and after many years of it.”
What do YOU think? Does a man’s desire for sex several times a day make him an “addict?” Is it wrong for a woman to expect cuddling without sex afterwards?
