Everything’s okay – as long as I give him sex

Why does my husband act nice only when he’s had sex?

Posted Nov 20, 2010

"Why does my husband act nice only when he's had sex? Why doesn't he behave sweetly and helpfully so that I will want sex?"
I often ask women who say this - how long did he act sweet after you had sex? For days! their wives answer. Did those days include you initiating more sex? No! their wives answer again. "I was satisfied the last time and hadn't thought about the next." Even though they say they would want more sex if the climate of the home were more peaceful, when it is more peaceful, they don't actually become more sexual. The idea of sex seems to go out the window for them. Based on their statements of how things work for them sexually, it's a conundrum.
