Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Impotence and masturbation

09/06/2007

Question:

My husband masturbates a lot. He will not share this or let me be a a part of it. He also has had several encounters with strip clubs and escorts. He hardly ever wants sex!!!! I think it is an intimacy problem?? We have been married for 13 years. I am in good shape and feel I am attractive. I am getting very depressed at this situation.

Answer:

It sounds like your husband has turned away from you for unclear reasons.

I would strongly suggest that you AND YOUR HUSBAND seek out a sex therapist or psychologist as soon as possible. He may not wish to go. You should then go alone to get the process started.
