Cutting down on Solo sex

First off I wanted to thank you Mike for your post. It has me wondering now if there lies the problem. I know my H engages in solo acts and now I am wondering if he would be more inclined to find the energy for partnered sex if he too stopped going solo for a while.
My question is how do I broach this subject with him? In the past it has always been a hot button issue. He views this as a "private" act so that even discussions about it get his back up. When I have tried to suggest that although there is nothing wrong with going solo, I do have concerns when it happens more than our time together- especially when I am ready, willing and able...he simply states that he is not taking anything away from me. Well now I'm thinking he is. That perhaps if he didn't satisfy the "urge" on his own he may be more inclined to push through the tiredness and satisfy it with me.
I do understand that now and again it is simply easier to pleasure yourself, but when it is more the norm than partner sex I have a problem with it. Of course I cannot tell you for sure how often he does it- because he won't tell me! But I do suspect that it is at least equal to our partner sex.
