11/19 update. You will always see a 10/23 date stamp here. Go ahead and post if you wish. I will clean it out occasionally if it gets too long and cluttered, but I won't censor it.
The thunderdome is going to become the place to post about issues like child abusers and flamers. I'm not going to moderate it, because that defeats the point. (Also, I'm one of the sensitive moms, and since I have to be here everyday, I need to be good to myself and avoid trauma and stress, too.)
In the future, if you want to post about something very controversial and sensitive, please post on the Thunderdome thread, and if you want to invite others to join you, just tell folks you're posting on Thunderdome.
Two alternatives are to ask ppl to e-mail you or to open a new chat session.

How to make your middle-age DH feel like a teenager again
December 22 2011, 6:04 PM
Here's the recipe:
Don't "do it" for at least 6 months (longer is even better). Many reasons for this, but mine are mainly total exhaustion, complete and total lack of libido, and some kind of evil peri-menopausal situation that makes intercourse extremely painful (haven't solved this yet, but trying).
Don't sleep in same bed with him for as long as possible (instead sleep with your kids, the dog, yourself, etc., and if you do, make sure at least one or two of your children are sleeping between you).
Take a yoga class and go to bed with DH without taking a shower.
Ignore him. Read a book.
When the light goes off and he reaches for you, explain that there are things you can do and things you can't (due to pain) and offer what you can. It's up to you and your DH what comes next, but mine:
Took both of our shirts off and...how shall I say this...dry humped me until the act was complete.
Good things that lights were off, because I was seriously LMAO inside because the last time anything like that happened I was 19 and Mark G was 17 and we were in my car. I literally touched the outside of his pants and BOOM!
So afterwards I said to DH, "Do you feel like a teenager again?" and he laughed for a good 3 minutes.
