I am in a sexless mariage. But I am far from trapped in the marriage. When me and Mrs. Tired were first married, we engaged in lots of good sex. It was limited to intercourse and oral sex in a variety of positions, but the sheer volume of lovin' made it quite enjoyable. I have never been into getting oral, but I am a giver and she got lots of it. After nine years of knocking at her back door I was finally allowed in. We enjoyed unfettered sex from that point on and even enjoyed a couple of threesomes. Both of us believe that the bedroom is off limits to nosy elders and their wives.
Then she got sick and things slowed down. Then she ended up getting uterine cancer and she had to get a hysterectomy. Her desire was completely excised along with her uterus. Rarely she would hop on for a ride, but after her back got worse, we decided it was time to end the sexual part of our union. Even an occasional hand stroking got to be too painful as her hands and joints swell and hurt a lot. We are only in our mid-forties and we are in the position many in their seventies find themselves. I love my wife with all that I am and I spend my days now caring for her needs. She is bed ridden and so she needs me more now than ever. So, I have learned that sex is a great thing to enjoy with your spouse, but it is hardly the end all necessity for a happy marriage. I am happy to say that our marriage is strong as ever. But I think that is because our love for each other is true blue.
