Dear Aunt B,
hi my name is Ashley. i have been with my husband for nine years. lately he has shown a great interest in pornography featuring black girls with big butts. he also dated women fitting that description while we were separated. i am the complete opposite of that. i am a white petite female. our sex life has diminished. he isnt showing much interest in me. i don't know what to do or what to think. most guys go gaga over me i don't understand why my husband does not anymore.
Unfortunately, this is happening all across America. Due to the prevalence and easier access to Porn via the Internet, I personally believe that our men may be falling into the trap of "Desensitization."
I really feel for you and realize just how important it is for us to be the object of our mans desires. It hurts deeply when we find out that we may not be all that in his eyes. But if every woman in America, especially the wives could actually read our husbands minds, well suffice it to say, we'd be scarred for life, appalled as well as grief stricken.
Men are hard wired differently than we are and are actually in a constant state of warfare as to putting off their desires, not acting upon them and keeping themselves in check. Even the greatest of men have fallen especially when they have some little floozy throwing her junk in his face on the daily. It happens at work, it happens at the bars, it happens when we, as well as they, least expect it.
There's nothing funny about it but it's hard not to laugh when you realize that if you ask the average man about his will to sustain, you know to not fool around on his wife or girlfriend, he'll often feel that he deserves Kudos for his good behavior. I mean after all, he fights it off every day and in a funny sort of way, he does deserve a cookie.
Yes, these days our morals are going to hell in a hand basket and there are girls, not women out there that'd just love to bed Your man down. They see the wedding ring and observe it as a challenge. Just for shits-n-giggles they'll want your husband as another Lipstick Notch on their bed post.
So, what's a girl to do? Well, for starters you must be aware of his needs, not in a subservient way but in an understanding of how he's wired with a mutual willingness to please. As I've mentioned in previous posts you want to keep his attention as well as keep him shopping at "your store."
You'll want to jazz it up, for one thing. It's like this; Marriage and when I speak of marriage I do firmly believe that if you are living together as well as sleeping together in the "Marriage Bed" you are simply lacking a piece of paper that validates it in the eyes of the Law. That simplified, the marriage bed is a partnership, a two to Tango situation and a thing to be cherished and more importantly worked at. It must be cultivated and nurtured if we want it to grow. It must be seen in all seriousness and never taken for granted, our first and foremost downfall.
Flip The Script
My suggestion to you is one where you need to step up to the plate and bat. You need to take charge and begin to fight for your man. This is not "I am woman hear me Roar" speech but I do want you to begin to be less a victim. Begin with a more blitzkrieg approach;
You must state your needs, asserting your likes and dislikes, what you will as well as will not stand for. For starters, you'll have to put the shoe on the other foot...
He will look funny in your high heels, hahaha, but you'll have to put things in terms he'll understand. For one thing, you should ask him if he would be bothered if you were watching other men, porn to be exact? Give him the scenario that how would he feel if he came home, looked at the History on your computer and saw that you were watching men with huge cocks? Yea, I said it! Many men, even if they are well endowed are intimidated by other men and their package if it's bigger than theirs. Ask him how he would feel if he saw that every few days you were watching this sort of thing and not just for a few minutes but for long periods of time. Would it not bother him? Would it not make him feel inadequate? Would he possibly wonder that there's a chance that you were not satisfied with his manhood?
If he says that all that does not bother him, I'll call him a damn liar!!! The point is that that exact scenario is how you feel when he looks at the sort of things he's been looking at. You are not black nor do you have a big booty so how could you ever measure up to his specifications?
All this Porn watching does not mean that he does not love you. What it does mean though, carries the implication that he does, possibly take you for granted and is not doing his part in the cultivation of your marriage? At the same time as I stated before, you've got to work at tripping his trigger. This may be a stinging indictment for both of you?
My Advice would be to sit down and get it all out lest you explode with resentment. Furthermore, I also suggest that you engage him in the understanding, a meeting of the minds that his behavior is hurtful and makes you feel like shit, less than and not capable to measure up.
It would be rather kind of him to agree to limit his "Porn Time" just for starters. You'll never get anywhere if you demand it and he'll just begin to get sneaky about it. Putting that shoe on his foot, as I stated may make him understand that it is extremely hurtful to you as well as desensitizing to him. He may not realize it but men who watch really XXX porn, you know the down and dirty stuff have a harder time getting aroused unless they are, themselves engaged in dirty dirty stuff.
So, he'd be doing himself and of course you a favor if he saved himself for you, watched less porn and masturbated less. Yes, normally the two go hand in hand, no pun intended!
Working on your marriage bed action has got to be Priority One. I also suggest that you invest in a vibrator and use it with him in your foreplay. If you need to know why I suggest this, I welcome you or anyone else to write me and I'll be more than happy to communicate why I feel this is important.
Don't be shy!!!You'd be surprised!!!
Keeping It Real,
