Our expert says:
sounds like your partner has erectile dysfunction. In this situation it is common for men to AVOID intimacy that might lead to sex becasue they are not going to set themselves up for failure. A cuddle for a woman is just that - for a man its the beginning of sex. What you see as intimacy and loving he sees as foreplay. You need to discuss his ED with him, explaining that it is often due to a physical reason, its very common after 40 and 99% treatable and is no reflection on his manhood - then get him to a sexologist that can sort out the undelying issues ( normally its High blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes or a side effect of some other medication)
ED can be the first symptom of a serious physical problem - get him evaluated.
