Definitely none of that recommendation going on at my house right now, no matter how deprived DH might feel. If I threw up on him or passed out from lack of oxygen, he might never recover.
Ahaha, I totally understand. I'm sorry if I came off as insensitive.
But, there are other acts that can be accomplished. Manual stuff, mutual personal stuff (trying not to be too graphic here). I mean, it's really up to the couple but I do think that sex is often undervalued in a marriage. One partner's needs are totally valid and as much as possible I think it's only fair to try and accommodate.
Sex in my house is expressly VERBOTEN right now (doctors orders), but we find other ways. Even a healthy attitude towards 'taking care of oneself' can go a long way for a man's comfort level, I think. Like 'hey honey, if you need to take an extra long shower, I totally understand' *wink wink*
On the flip side, regularly engaging in sexual acts that make you uncomfortable can be really damaging in the long run. That is equally as valid a concern. I guess it's all about balance - and COMMUNICATION!
Just my 0.02. Luck everyone!
