I not sure why we all thought that the desire to masturbate would stop after we got married.
Before marriage, there was hardly any wait time required; you had the desire, and you fulfilled it. After marriage, however, desire for sexual release often comes hours or days before you and your wife can come together. Before marriage, you could be sitting around the house, start feeling it, and take care of the need right away. After marriage, you know you and your wife just made love the night before and there’s no way she’s going to feel like it tonight when she gets home from a long day of work. This all-too-familiar conflict of interest was a little stressful early on in my marriage, but it was something we were able to work through by both sacrificing something for the other.
Over the next several days, I want to talk about the subject of masturbation, particularly paying attention to how we approach this personal topic in our mutual marriages. Much of the information presented will be coming from an excellent book, Sex, Men, and Godby Doug Weiss (also available in Spanish). I can’t recommend this book enough, and will be doing a specific recommendation for it after we finish this series.
I am very much looking forward to the discussions that will happen in the comments section, but do ask that we keep it respectful and clean (check your vulgarities at the door). I also know there are a lot of women who read this site, and so I ask that they be respectful and helpful in the comments that they make. Thanks so much for everyone’s cooperation. I’m really looking forward to this next week.
It’s time we talked about this. For real.
