Husband masturbates in bed next to me

We''ve been married for 7 months now &  the sex is boring and unsatisfying for me. Ive spoke to him about foreplay but I dont think he likes touching me at all. He wants a baby &  he is so desperate that he even suggested we go for artificial insemination. Right now its 2 o''clock in the morning &  i was woken up by him masturbating next to me, he does this most nights &  it makes me really angry but Ive never confronted him abt it. Im really unhappy in this marriage, what should I do?

Keep a wooden spoon on the floor next to your bed and the next time you catch you him masturbating you grab the spoon and wack him on the penis!!

Okay, jokes aside. Tough one. I think you need to talk to him again. Give it another shot and perhaps stroke his ego a bit by telling him how hot it makes you when you think about him performing oral sex on you.

There are so many unsatisfied woman out there and I wish I could help them all reach sexual satisfaction. But I am only one man sadly...

Common now people - you are just being mean. It appears there are issues in between you that you have not dealth with. You do not enjoy sex and I am sure he can tell, and possibly wishes he could make you happy but convinced himself that he can''t. So to be rejected, he rather mastubate. I like how phrase it "  in bed next to me"  I may be right in assuming you despise this act, if anything - you could also help in realiving him but offering him a hand job as he busy with himself....

That will show that you need things to improve and you are willing to work for that, as oppose to seating and insisting on him meeting your needs and servicing you. It does become a bore when it is a chore. Intimacy appears to be gone, trace it and put it back and it will put the care back.

You mention that you have talked about it. Sex is still a little bit taboo to some men believe it or not. Our egos can''t let go - and generally men wants to be told you are not sexing me right. That is where the how did you tell him becomes important.

Lookt at it this way....and you will find it to be true. the more you sex the less fight there is, everymen likes sex - straight or gay - instead of correcting him, look at your own contribution to the situation as well. And if all fails - counselling.

still you don''t mention love. hence most people advise divorce him......he batho Naa lea tseba gore lenyalo ke eng? you just don''t divorce cause you feel like it. You invest time, thinking about it so when you do it, there is no I told you so.
