My husband has a hooker addiction

I am desperate to find someone--anyone who can relate to my issue.  I found out almost 1 1/2 years ago that my husband has been seeing prostitutes for over 16 years of our 28 year marriage.  He has given me std's, one of them serious enough to render me sterile and put me in the hospital for 12 days.  I never suspected that he was having sex outside our marriage because he has never been that interested in sex with me.  I am attractive and in very good shape.  I take good care of myself and am very interested in having a good and frequent sex life.  He has evidently only been interested in a frequent sex life with hookers.  He has sexually rejected me from the very beginning of our marriage.  Does anyone else in the world have a sex addict husband who won't have sex with their wife?  Please, please no negative comments.  I m devastated that even though I took him back a year ago (after throwing him out for 4 months) and he promised me that we would have a real sex life it's been worse than ever.  I feel like he has vilified me for taking away his hookers.

Kick him to the curb. I undestand you love this man but come on.. who needs a man like him. He's not only hurting you physically (std's) but emmotionally as well. You sound like you have a very low self esteem (to put up with him) you don't need this from anyone i'm sure your a wonderful women who deserves better. Take care.

Sorry about your painful situation. I can somewhat relate as I once dated a man who would occasionally "pick up" street walkers and utilized paid phone sex, even though he and I had what I thought was a fulfilling sex life. He often placed himself in harm's way as he'd been robbed; threatened; physically assulted and had his car vandalized. He's a wonderful and intelligent man who, unfortunately, has a serious addition to sex... An addiction, according to him, for which he "wants no cure." So, I came to the decision that he and I were better off maintaining a platonic friendship; rather than a sexual relationship... as I didn't care to compromise my health. If you remain in this relationship, use protection if and when you have intimacy with him. But, I tend to agree with the others who posted here. Save your sanity and your health and leave before his obsession consumes you!
