No Sex anymore

My wife admitted to me last night that she has no interest in Sex anymore as she has went through menopause.  I am wondering as I still love her but no sex is driving me crazy and masturbating is not enough fun.  I know this sounds self centered but would I be a creep if I found a woman who was just looking for sex and we would be eachothers outlets or should I carry on jerking off as it has been probably 3 years since I have had sex with woman and not my hand :>((

I think that's going to depend on your wife and how she would feel about it. Do you think she would be accepting of that kind of arrangement? Do you think you could maintain those strict barriers (i.e. relationship B is only for sex, relationship A with my wife is the one I prioritize). Though I don't think your idea is unreasonable, I do think that it's easier said than done. I'd recommend talking to your wife about how you feel and at least make that decision together - whether it's even a plausible idea for you two (in terms of meeting both partner's needs in the relationship).

I wonder also if your wife would be willing to try supplements to help bring back her sex drive somewhat. It sounds tough for women who go through menopause, as I've heard a couple admit that their sex drive really does drop to zero. Talk to your wife anyway and discuss other alternatives before looking outside the relationship. Maybe you'll have to change your routine in the bedroom. Good luck.

I don't think either of your options that you offered will work out.  Breaking vows isn't a good idea,  and there aren't any women who just want sex.  That's what guys want,  women don't want that even if they at first pretend they do.  

Going without sex doesn't work out either.

I really don't understand how women who are married to good guys can think they can just say oh by the way we aren't going to have sex anymore.  Kind of unbelievable,  but common.

Somehow your wife needs to realize that you NEED,  not just want sex,  and she will have to find a way to be cheerful and giving.  I bet she doesn't get much thrill out of doing the dishes but she does them every day with a smile on her face.

It's all attitude.  Your wife has the wrong one.

Best wishes,  I hope you can convince her.

although i think your idea is pretty ridiculous, i do agree with rockrose that your wife should at least make an effort to satisfy you, as you are her husband. i would sincerely hope that you have tried seriously talking to your wife about this and telling her exactly how you feel before you concocted this "arrangement" idea and that you're not just looking for the "go ahead" to have sex with someone else. to that extent, i agree that you're wife should be more understanding of your needs as a man and that you both should try and meet somewhere in the middle. good luck.

I appreciate your comments as we have been together for almost 20 years and have a great appreciation for eachother and are great friends.  I have never even thought of cheating on her even though it has been atleast 3 years since we have had intimacy.  I enjoy sex and don't know how to get around this as she outright said she is not interested in sex and we actually sleep in seperate rooms.  She says she feels unsexy and has no real interest in sex.  we have been to some exotic places in the Carribean and still nothing we slept in the same bed usually a kingsize but still nothing.  I am wondering if I am destine to have to be more handy with myself for the future of our life together.  I miss our intimate times and I treat her with 100% respect all the time.  I clean do dishes, vacum and give her massages, blow dry her hair, rub her feet.  I can't even get her to put on a535 on my sore shoulders.  Am I foolish or does this sound like I am her glorified roommate ??

I don't think she finds you sexually attractive anymore.  Sorry but I am being honest here.   She has lost it for you.  She loves you as a friend but nothing else.  

If you don't want a divorce, and your wife agrees to it, I suggest you visit a sex worker for your physical needs.  These women don't get emotionally involved and need the money so it's a win-win for all involved.

Good luck.

Are you sure as is this not a recipe for disaster as is there not a lot of sexual disease within that type of lifestyle ??  I live in Canada and there are not many areas close to me as in our city it is illigal as the police can take your vehicle away and or fine you 400 dollars maybe you mean a masuesse ??

mayflower's suggestion is pretty bold. imo. but i do hear you. loud and clear. i feel for you too. it seems as though you really do love and care for your wife and generally want to have relations with HER. the thing is, as mayflowers said, i think you're wife loves you dearly, but as more of a best friend/life partner. however, i don't believe your wife would consent to such a "third-party" rendevous as i believe she is most likely comfertable in your present situation and may not understand why you need so badly what she can live without. see what im saying? anyway, im not quite sure if there is a "solution" to the problem. in any event, i think you and your wife need to be on the same page as to what you need and that may mean explaining to her the real possibility of ending your marriage. again, good luck.

Have your wife see her doctor.  The problem might be hormonal.  Especially, since she is menopausal.   I don't think it necessarily has anything to do with her not being attracted to you anymore.  A woman's sex drive is much different from that of a man.  A woman can be very much in love with her husband and have no interest in sex.


I don't think that getting a "casual" sex partner is a good idea.  Even if your wife was okay with it in the beginning, it will ultimately lead to disaster, not only on an emotional level but you might bring home an STD or worse, HIV.  Other than that, I don't know what else to tell you.  

Good luck!

I am saving both you and your wife some time.  She is not attracted to you.  It's not b/c she went through menopause.  That is BS. That is her excuse so you don't feel so bad.  I am going through menopause right now and have a great sex life.  My drive is actually increasing but it could be b/c I am finally happy with someone that I connect with and I don't have to worry about getting pregnant.  

You can either live with your wife as a "friend"  using masturbation, or if she agrees, go to a prostitute or find a mistress or get a divorce and find a wife who does want to sleep with you.  Those are your options.  Telling your wife to just do it (like washing dishes) because it's her duty to take care of you even though she doesn't like it is going to feel awful for her.  Talk about a turn off.   She will be dry as a bone.  You need to take care of yourself and it that means finding other means to satisfy your needs, so be it.  

Use condoms if you do have sex with other women.  Safety first.

Good luck.


Well, then try your solution of finding a woman who also just wants to have sex, ok it with your wife, all parties involved and have a party.  Don't forget to use to condoms.

Does your wife have another physical ailment you aren't telling us here?  Like MS or arthritis or something?  Why do you do all of the housework and blowdry her hair and all the massages?  If my fiance did all that I would be raring to go almost 24 hours a day because there would be nothing else for me to do and my back wouldn't hurt.  There is something you aren't offering here.

We can certainly know what is fair or unfair within a relationship.I know of this same situation only reversed. It happens to a lot of men and their wives have to find a way to deal with the difficulty. For better or worse in sickness and in health.A man can not help when this occurs but if he is caring will give comfort and closeness to his wife. You enter into a different dynamic in your marriage. The vows are kept and now having to walk out yet another change within a relationship.I personally think that it is very insensitive of your wife to take this approach toward you, any wife. There are different ways to love and show love and appreciation toward one another. I don't believe she should as someone said be a dry dishrag, but when you love someone you meet their needs and find a way to make it work.I would encourage you to share your feelings and ask her if she really feel that it is fair to ask you to not have your needs met. She may not have that drive, but because you love someone you take care of them and meet their needs. It is two people helping to do for one another. Willingly, lovingly. We are one. To someone who said after her hysterectomy she still had a sex drive. I have known some women who lost it and could not be satisfied, but worked at finding the intimacy with their husband very important. Our relationship changes with the things that happen to us phyically in a marriage. Sickness, injuries, but the love and devotion gets deeper and it is the relationship that survives it all. In the end to be faithful, devoted, and knowing it was a job well done and that in itself is the reward. The building of a family, a lifetime together, looking back some things seem not as important when cancer,trama, brain injury, death happen. many people would ask for just one more day with their spouse whether they could do anything or not. Your wife needs to be grateful and thankful that she has such a loving husband and should want to please you.  Reach 40 yrs. That is a reward, rising above the challenges. Adapting and finding common ground. Stay faithful, work toward a solution, seek some professional and medical imput, let he know you need the closeness with her,and people pray for him. Good luck and God bless

Mayflowers - You and I just disagree on this one.

I think it's unfair of you to say his wife is no longer attracted to him - just because in your experience,  menopause increased your libido.  You're in the minority - there are MANY MANY women her age who have zero desire for sex with anyone.  Hormones are such a tricky thing and just because your experience is one way,  doesn't make hers that way.

We all do things out of love that we don't want to do,  and it doesn't have to make you feel "awful".  Humans (especially women) are built that way sexually.  We can have sex without being fertile, and can have sex with no desire whatsoever,  and it doesn't make us feel "awful" unless you have a scarred sexual past or some other problem.  Having sex when you aren't hot isn't "awful".  

Just like going to a kid's choir concert you really have no desire to watch isn't "awful".  You do it out of love,  you pretend you had a great time,  but in fact you'd rather not be there right now.  

And I think going to a sex worker or getting a mistress is dangerous and degrading.

I'm with RR.  I had a baby a year ago and my drive isn't the same as it was while pregnant and it was different even still before I got pregnant (I'm pretty sure it's hormonal), but I' am still very much attracted to my husband.

Hormones do different things to different people, so just because one woman is excessively in the mood while pregnant or while going through menopause, does not mean all women going through pregnancy and menopause are the same.

I don't think it would hurt for your wife to talk to her gynecologist about this.  However, in the meantime (or if her doctor can't help her medically) I also agree that you do many things out of love in many different situations.  This is no different.

I'm in a similar situation as your wife, but my issue is pain.  Intercourse is so painful it's just not worth it.  "Oh yeah baby, hurt me again.  Matter of fact, that feels so great I think I'll go do it again."  Not.  It's the same thing as say, putting your hand on a hot stove burner, and having your partner beg you to do it again.  And again, and again...  Of course, there are other ways to achieve intimacy without full intercourse.  Just takes some compromise on both sides.

NanaGG makes a great point about long-term relationships.  Desire changes and goes up and down over the years.  All kinds of things from illness, to stress, to hormone fluctuations play a part.  The important thing is the relationship.  If it's only based on sexual frequency, that relationship isn't going to survive in the long haul.

Smiley, before you go out and do something really foolish, take a good hard look at yourself.  How have you changed over the years from when you were both sexually active?  Is there something about you that needs to change?  Have you let yourself go physically?    Has she?  Sometimes we women can't stand to see the changes in our bodies as we age, and we don't feel attractive.  That alone can be a libido crusher.

It sounds like you're acting more like a personal body servant than a roommate.  It's beautiful that you do so much for your wife, but maybe she needs to do some of these things herself - like drying her own hair.  Aside from the sexual issues, your relationship sounds pretty one-sided in other areas.  It would be great if she would talk to her doctor about possible hormone issues, but from what you write, you both need to work on communication before anything else changes.  It's not unusual - many people forget how important communication is as the years go by.  Doesn't mean you both can't get it back with some help.

If your wife isn't willing or interested in helping you fulfill your needs, then find another way to release.  If she's truly loves you, then she'll help regardless if she's "horny" or not.

Also, look at Wellbutrin XR/CR.  This medication is an antidepressant and at moderate doses is well known to increase sex drive.  Again, if she loves you she'll be willing to try things to help the situation.

If she's unwilling to help in any way, then it's to the massage parlor once a week...

Just to add my voice here, unfortunately without offering a solution.

This apparently is some issue that just happens in couples. I am in the same situation: wife lost completely interest some years ago and we are not even 40. We are together almost 20 years now and I would never cheat on her, even because of that, but I started believing that this is a common cause of cheating in couples.

My physical capacity is quite normal, and for some periods I am hyper-active, mentaly and physically -- much energy flowing out and often increased sex drive. Nevertheless, the situation is well established now and the problem is deeply rooted.

This is a lonely and sad route, but that's life.

I am not a drinker and do not have a beer belly.  I have had many women comment on how young I look as my youngest child is 22 years old.  I do situps everyday well almost everyday I think the reason that my wife is not sexually active is she has as my mother put it one day "put on a few pounds "  I love her no matter what but I am hoping this summer we can get ourselves into shape so next year on our winter holiday we will enjoy our getaway in a physical way.  I have never been pushy about sex as it should be a mutual thing so I have waited for a long time and this admission struck me as wow.  I felt bad as I try to keep myself in fairly decent shape but her personal feelings could be to her own personal body image.  Thanks for all your insights it is very interesting on the comments from both sides of the gender wall on this post.

I read in Readers Digest recently that even a 10% weight loss increases ones sex drive. But it also mentioned that overweight couples are enjoying sex sometimes more than their thinner counterparts. Probably because they are comfortable with their partner. Now for my thoughts as a woman. Are you making sure that in the past your sexual encounters were enjoyable for her as well as yourself? Was she achieving orgasms each time you had sex? Women also rarely achieve orgasm through regular intercourse alone. Usually its through oral or manual stimulation. For example I have had expensive chocolate and crave it, and I have had cheap chocolate and can tolerate it. After awhile, it gets easier to just not have chocolate at all if I can't have the good stuff. So maybe she is not wanting the cheap stuff. Maybe you need to put some excitement to it. Shake things up a bit. Now here is the tough part. Is she willing? She cannot imagine you going your whole life without sex. I am sorry but I would not do that to my husband. If there was an issue with me I would tell him and I would want to fix that. You are too young for that. My parents are 59 and 65 and have a very healthy sex life. If she is unwilling to get help, then you must ask yourself, how much does this woman really care for me or my needs? Sex is a part of marriage as it creates intimacy. It doesn't have to be 3 times a week. Even if its once or twice a month is alright. But please talk to her. Its really not fair to you. She is also missing out. Seek out therepy. I would love to see you both fix this before something happens you both might regret. There is nothing here that can't be fixed by two willing participants. She needs to see a doctor and for that she has to be willing.
Best of luck!

I have taken her to Cuba and Jamaica both had kingsize beds both places I took her to romantic dinners one in Jamaica had the resturant right by the water and the waves would quietly splash just feet from our table ( view best in resturant could also watch the cruise ships cross the horizen )  There were candles and soft music.  Cuba and Jamaica we walked along beaches alone at night watched the waves from our balcony held hands but still no interest.  I gave her back rubs foot rubs everything I could do to maybe even get her to touch my privates.  I am discouraged but I do love her wish she was more interested in love making last night again we talked and nothing so I am thinking I will have to be manipulative and get us both into shape and maybe this will get her in the mood and if this doen't work then I will reevalutate the situation

I feel really sorry for you. Its just not normal to not want that in your relationship. It sounded very lovely and romantic. There has to be something deeper here than we know. Are you touching her as well to encourage her to touch you there? Have you kissed her romantically lately? Kissed her neck? Getting in shape is only part of it. I can tell you that when I was overweight I had a great sex life. Now that I have lost weight, no different. Its all in the mind for women. Tell her how you really feel as you have told us. (just leave the part out about cheating) and how its emotionally affecting you. Its really considered in divorce cases as isolation of the spouse. You also didn't say how your sex life used to be. I was concerned about that. Get some new tricks up your sleeve. Talking does nothing if its getting you no where. Is she at least open to trying? Wishing you the best cause I don't think I would be staying much longer. You are a good man for waiting so long. I hope she knows how lucky she is to have such a patient husband.

Marriage is give and take.  You shouldn't find another woman just for sex because it doesn't work, as a pp said.  Women are an emotional being and chances are the one you choose won't want just sex.  She'll want something more down the road and you're risking your marriage because whose to say you won't want something more with the other woman down the road?  That leaves your wife heartbroken and alone.  BUT your wife needs to realize you have wants and needs too.  You should talk to her and see if you can't compromise.  Maybe sex twice a month or something.  She should also see a doctor.  They may be able to prescribe something for her libido.  I really don't know many men that would stick around as long as you have and just masturbate for 3 years.  That's being faithful.  Like Cosmogal said, she is very lucky to have you as a husband.

And as a sidenote, sex workers (aka prostitutes) are illegal in a lot of areas, both USA and Canada.  NOT a good idea.  You are then risking your health and, as you said smiley, getting fined and losing your possessions as a result of getting caught.  Not worth the risk IMHO.

Smiley,  I appreciate your commitment to marriage,  and your obvoius affection for her.  

I know others may disagree,  but her lack of libido isn't unusual - it's a common thing for women to reach a certain age - or go through a span of years -where they don't have any libido.    They just decide to have sex anyway,  as a part of their relationship.

She probably puts a lot more energy into NOT having sex than if she were to just give in and have sex with you.  All the avoiding touch,  pretending she's sleeping,  trying not to hug you very long or you'll want it,  etc.  

I know there are women who have back problems or other severe health issues who are really not able to have sex - they just can't.  She just sounds like she's exceptionally selfish - every time I come to this thread and see you've posted I just hope you're saying you poured out your heart to her and made an ultimatum,  and she saw your perspective.

Best wishes.

I am very committed and know that the only option is to have patience and a whole lot of cold showers.  I guess being great friends is one great thing as we always fight lifes situations on the same side so this goes a long ways.  I know some couples never get to Jamaica or Cuba so this is special time no matter what.  I do wish there was some sex atleast but it could be worse and we could always fight which we don't.  I sometimes fantasize about some younger women I work with but I never think of going down that path.  I guess stroking about my naughty thoughts is better than acting them out as some of these younger women ( in 20's ) always wink and smile at me which drives me a little crazy.  I know this is the old guys dream but losing what I have would not be worth the fantasy.  I stand alone in the shower as usual ( sorry not trying to put that picture in your head ) but atleast I have a great home and life.

Normally loss of libido after menopause is hormonal.  If a car runs out of gas, it will not go anymore.  Period.  Gas for a woman's libido is testosterone.  As we go through natural menopause our production of estrogen and testosterone slows waaaaaay down.  If we go through surgical menpause we stop producing it at all.  A woman needs testosterone and estrogen to retain libido.

Here is my story:

I had a complete hysterectomy in 1987 when I was in my 30’s.   I had no libido.  None.  I managed my menopause symptoms with different estrogen pills.  Then came the estrogen scare several years ago.  I tried to get off of the estrogen and couldn’t.  The night sweats were the worse.  Did I mention I had no libido?

Then in 2003, I read a newsletter from my gyn about Bioidentical hormone pellets.  These tiny pellets are made up of either estrogen or testosterone.  They are implanted in my hip every 3-4 months.  It's a simple office procedure.  Bioidentical hormones are the closest thing to what a woman produces naturally.  There is not the risk of breast cancer as in synthetic hormones.  Your body only uses what it needs.  I did some research and one of the symptoms of low testosterone is loss of libido.  I also felt like my name was after every symptom.  There was a ray of hope!  I talked to my dr about the pellets.  She does thousands of women.  I found out that a friend also had the pellets and was loving them.  So I decided to get them.  I get 2 estrogen pellets which I think are 25mg each, and 1 testosterone pellet of 75mgs.  I will get these pellets as long as I am able.  Hopefully till I die.  

I have to say they changed my life.  First of all the menopause symptoms went away.  But the absolute best was the increase in sex drive.   Orgasm, lubrication, desire went through the roof.  We were like kids on a honeymoon!   My whole self-image has increased.   Now after 4 years, we’ve “calmed” down somewhat but really my libido is still strong.  I guess I’m trying to make up for all those lost years.  

Think about it.  No gas... the car doesn't run.  No testosterone...no desire for sex (amongst other things).  

Put gas in the car, it runs, put testosterone in our bodies are we are new women!

P.S.   They are not just for women.  Men who feel a loss of libido can also get testosterone pellets.

as a person who has been married 39 years and never liked sex, or had any sex drive,  I feel for your wife.  I also am going thru menopause and feel the same way. And no one can know what you're going through unless they go through it also.  I understand your frustration because my husband also is and has had to deal with this for so long.  I have tried testosteron creams and that helped alittle.  My question is was her sex drive normal for her and you before she started menopause?  Her gynocoligist could possible help but she has to want the help.  As for you I really don't know what to tell you.  My husband wouldn't even think about sex outside the marriage but then he takes his frustrations out on me and our relationship suffers. I know of many women who have done exactly what your wife has said and the husbands are relinkished to a relationship of friendship and pain.  I'm sorry.

I'm not negative just realistic.  Lets see...you are what, like 60+ right?  A young girl is going to be hot for you?  Yeah, that'll happen.  I think you see things that aren't really there because you are so lonely and have a distorted view of women.  I've seen your posts over on the sex forum.  You have issues man, big issues.  Sex is just about all there is to you.  I think your wife knows about these issues and it turns her off hence the fact she is not interested in sex.   You probably see a women and they *could* be looking at you but thinking about what to make for dinner and in your eyes, you think she is coming on to you.  

I've had older men hit on me and it's like "Hey Gramps, keep your wrinkly old body away from me."  Believe when I tell you this, I wasn't even remotely thinking of being with these men.  I like young - well 40-ish - men.  They are experienced and their bodies are still good.  

Sorry SMILEY, you need a dose of reality here.  Either that girl was a prostitute (yes, they can dress like you describe) or she was looking at someone else or she was playing a joke on you.  No young hot chick is going to be coming on to you.  

Now, here is my advice, start reading books, take a class in math or history, help the poor, build house for the poor, feed your mind but get your mind off of sex.  It has warped you and no woman is going to take you seriously.

I am not 60+ and if so then yes I would expect a young woman to be uninterested as I know that older women look at me and I am not interested either.  I am actually 45 and do not think about sex all the time.  I think if you read my posts you would see that I am not obsessed with sex if I was then I would have left my wife and found an airhead woman who was into sex and not into reality.  I am not a type of person who sees things and cannot decipher the feelings or other intentions.  I guess I have given you the idea just because I am frustrated with my situation that all I think about is sex.  I guess you know me better than I do so I guess you can tell me which should I do first get a vecectomy or should I just become a priest ???   Don't answer don't worry as I guess sometimes these forums can create too much controversy and so guess I will read along and try to keep my sex filled thoughts to myself.  I did not realize how upsetting this must be for this sex obsessed old man must make you feel

I have just known enough men in my life that have mis-read women and what you described sounded like that type of situation.  The only women that blantantly come on to men (who aren't sending out signals) are either prostitutes, grifters, or sluts.  Normal, healthy women do not act this way.

You started this post with a question about finding a sex partner that would remain unemotional so you could stay married to a wife who doesn't want to have sex with you for heavens sake!!!!!    

For what's it worth, I am being honest with you about my take on the situation.  I won't post anymore to you.

I am having the same problem as you with younger women , I am 37 but it seems that I look about 32 and mid to late 20's women are looking at me

They are all well dressed and attractive and don't wear clothes that flaunt their body , women who flaunt their body don't look at me nor do older women

This activity has increased since I lost some weight and paid more attention to my appearance

I read your other post where you said "I know about being overweight but for the record I wear clothes that fit my appearance as I am very tall.  I wear clothes that overlap and not like a sack but decent clothes that look real good"


I seem to look OK in the mirror when wearing my shirt or shirt and jacket or when naked , but not so good when just wearing a t-shirt

Where I live the local people do not wear nice clothes , in fact they all wear the same type of clothes eg tracksuit /hoodie / jeans ,trainers, baseball cap and smell

I wasn't born in the area and would say I look different so perhaps that is the appeal - or perhaps it is all in my head


I do think that I can tell when a woman is looking at a man because she is interested rather than for a joke , because there was a man wearing just a pair of shorts (no shirt) on the bus , he had a good body and a woman on the bus couldn't keep her eyes off him

I pretend I am not paying attention and they look at me for a long time when they think I am not looking , although I will have looked at them earlier

these are lone women - you would expect women in a group to be more likely look at a man if they were joking

I don't know what to do

In answer to your original question ;

If I had a partner who had lost interest in sex - I wouldn't look elsewhere - the thought wouldn't even cross my mind and if I was looking for a partner it would not be an issue either

Keep in mind sex is a mental thing for women (not only physical), So try to make her feel sexy and as if she deserves the pleasure you would love to give her. Take that stand point and approach.
