He's losing his right to complain (vent)

When I got home from work, he met me with a drink (good move) and then went out to pick up dinner (even better move), while I did what I needed to do. When he got home again (he was gone about 15 minutes), I was waiting for him on the couch, in a blue thong and satin robe, with candles lit, ready to go. He was, for some reason, in a bad mood and was generally grouchy and unresponsive. What the heck am I supposed to do with that? He's asked me to be more forward, okay, so after instructing him in which articles of clothing to remove in what order...nothing. I tried to be sexy, I was touching him, I was half-naked, and he just wasn't getting aroused. What else am I supposed to do?!?! Now I know someone may suggest that he's been masturbating on the side, but if he knew that sex was going to happen, I seriously doubt that he'd jeopardize that just to get off a couple hours earlier!
It's not bad enough that I'm stressed about the exam and a bunch of crap going on at work and I haven't had time to exercise in weeks (my self-image is suffering), but now I don't excite him. This is doing wonders for my libido, which I thought was coming back for a while but now am not so sure.
Just an aside for marriedsexylawyer (kind of similar to your DH's experience), I saw my parents touch each other exactly one time in the 13 years that I was alive before they divorced. I was six years old and I saw them hug each other. My parents gave no outward appearance that they were anything other than roommates who happened to sleep in the same bed.
Thanks for letting me vent, I appreciate it. Obviously I can't really confront him to much about this arousal issue because I don't want to make him self-conscious (self-fulfilling prophecy), but this is really getting to me.
