Ask Amy: Handsy hubby should revise technique

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: My husband and I have been married for almost eight years.

I'm 44 and he is 38. We have three kids, ages 5, 3, and one.

We've always had an amazing sex life and a great relationship in every way.

We also have the usual stress that comes along with raising kids (paying bills, running a household, etc.).

We've always taken comfort in each other.

My issue is that I'm tired of the sleaze and vulgarity that has always been a part of his way of trying to get me "in the mood" when he wants to have sex.


I've never once turned him away when he wanted it, and I believe our sex drives are equal.

I'm not sure if it's because I'm getting older or because of the constant neediness of my children, but when he starts with the constant sexual innuendos, getting handsy, grabbing my body and breasts – it makes me feel disgusted. I feel like a piece of meat.

When we were first together and up until a few months ago, it didn’t bother me.

What's wrong with me?!
