Two weeks

Well, this is the longest me and my partner have gone without sex; the last time was extremely hot, was followed by a week of irritability, and the last week has been very peaceful around the house. We actually had a couple of minutes of intercourse yesterday which was odd because there was very little sensation; in fact I barely had an erection which was unusual for me.
I'm not sure how this will pan out, but I know I don't want to go back to the hot and volatile sex; I think unconsciously she gets that it throws off her equilibrium too. We always had hot sex, so it will be interesting to see if and how we shift gears. She's not interested in karezza and stuff but maybe I can gently steer us into it.
At least I feel a greater unity and harmony in the house; like we're a team. We're also talking about having more kids.
I find so much of this marriage thing is trusting and letting go.



interesting times

in a way you are going through a mini reboot, sounds like. I track my feelings and my wife's and also our sexual activity in a spreadsheet and diary. It may sound clinical but I've been learning a lot and it makes me more aware of cycles that are always part of life.

Why do you think it's been two weeks without sex?
