ASK ME ANYTHING TODAY!!! Sex and Relationship Coach Dr. Jane Guyn back again to answer your q's. 2/14/23 9 am PST til 12 noon. Happy Valentines Day! XOXO

My partner is clearly depressed and has been for 5+ months, this means our sex life has disappeared. We used to have an amazing sex life. I’m feeling very insecure from the constant rejection. I’ve tried to bring it up with them and they are often defensive and in hindsight I don’t think I’ve brought it up with much compassion and probably made them feel like an object. I’ve tried to suggest weekly ‘intimacy’ (not committing to PIV so they don’t feel pressure to get hard), taking sex off the table completely and them setting reminders when I mention it feeling sexually frustrated (to try and satisfy me later in the day / the next day). Sex has become a major taboo / awkward subject now. Any advice on how we can move forward on this? My partner is still clearly depressed and I’m still feeling insecure / ugly.
