With less tension in the relationship is there more enjoyment in the sex?

Thatch very commendable. I hope DH is showing you appreciation in areas that you would want or welcome. I know I tend to get up early and clean the kitchen the day after good sex.

The day you clean the kitchen before good sex is the day we know you are fully trained.

This is not a chicken and egg question. It is very clear. You want a clean kitchen. I want clean pipes. You clean my pipes I clean the kitchen. I fell for the clean the kitchen first once, but not twice.

I will however cook you a nice dinner first. Since the rule is the cooker doesn't clean. If you want me to do both there better be some good sex in between.

DMAM,

It's no wonder I'm not up for sex, my DH neither cooks nor cleans! Of course he's so far behind now it'd take him the rest of his life cooking and doing dishes to even get us even!

Thank goodness I'm not keeping score and I don't believe in being "paid" for it, in any form. I either want to do it or I don't. I'm not doing it to get something out of him....well, except to get him to shut up and give me some peace for a damn change.

He does, and it isn't cleaning the kitchen. I get an attentive calm less stressed DH, so I'm happy. And he'll even cook every now and then.

Bet you if you got really loud he'd clean the kitchen.

>>I'm not doing all this to get something from him other than to give him what he needs.

So are you getting any sexual satisfaction or enjoyment from this?
