Hurt too much for sex

Feb 09, 2017 7:37 PM

Anyone else just hurt to much to have or enjoy sex with their partner? If so how do you handle it?

Let my partner do all the work as i lay there and use my hands creatively. Lol x

Yes but I also feel that the chronic pain had just made me not interested anymore :(

Harder for a man to comment because of a different point of view. Yes i hurt, my drive isn't what it used to be but I'm hurting, I ain't dead lol. Yes I'll pay for it afterwards but it's one of the few joys and temporary escapes i have left.

Has to be someone really special for me to bother. (I'm even too lazy to do it myself.. LMAO😜😉). BUT.. no matter what, we have pain and pay for things we do afterwards.. so, why not do something enjoyable?🤔

I'm on about a dozen or so prescriptions and it has wrecked my sex drive. Opioids nerve meds beta blockers- it's unfortunate that low libido is a side effect of most medications these days.

I have this issue and it's heartbreaking but I try to find times where the pain is less intense or when my medicine is working more efficiently and just stick to certain positions I know hurt less and pleasing my partner. It's an important connection to keep

I think if you look at it as another form of distraction. Do something romantic. Have your partner gently rub your back or wherever it feels nice and relax with that for a bit. Then perhaps that will lead you to some kissing and touching.. it may lead to sex it may not.. it's a good beginning though. (The rare times I'm in the mood to be bothered I can think myself to orgasm so it saves me a lot of energy.. LOL😜😳😂).
