My wife avoids foreplay because she hates her body

DEAR DEIDRE: MY wife has become so self-conscious about her body that she avoids all foreplay.

She insists on just going straight to intercourse as soon as we kiss.

I’m 38 and she’s 36. We have been together for eight years and always used to have a really great sex life.

But since she had the children, stopped work and became a full-time mum, she refuses to get naked and acts like making love is just a chore.

It stops me enjoying it much too, so I don’t last very long.

I think she has a perfect body and I have told her so.

And I don’t care that she has a little belly and a caesarean scar.

How can I get her to enjoy sex again? She is making me feel there’s something wrong with me for wanting it.

DEIDRE SAYS: If she’s tired from childcare and feels unfulfilled, she will not be in a sexy mood.

Take the pressure off her by helping out more. And if she is missing work, you could perhaps support her to get a part-time job.

My support packs on Reviving A Woman’s Sex Drive and Saving Your Sex Life might be useful.
