I'm LL but I also felt respect for the guy when reading your blurb. Like you, I admired his honesty. On the other hand, I caught myself feeling sorry for Magnaniman's wife when he told us that she was now leaning toward buying and wearing the lingerie he likes. I'm not saying my reaction was justified, but I found myself thinking, "yet another LL who has to stretch and strain to accommodate her partner's wishes."

>> (1) respect for him for being so honest with his W, for not cheating on her, and for going to MC for a year, << Yes, I did think, "wow that's quite an admission, I'm impressed he came out with that one" >>(2) assuming that his W was probably not GGG with him and/or was LL,<< This is not a jump I would have made. I would however, wonder why they didn't just open the marriage up and see where it took them. In a lot of cases guys who feel this way find the shine comes off that apple pretty damn quick when they are allowed to bag as many as they want, and find out the pickings aren't quite so easy, and that just because they want to have sex with a woman doesn't mean they can get her, and if they do get her, it doesn't mean that she will be "all that" when he does. When you take the "forbidden" out of forbidden fruit, it turns out to be a regular old, run of the mill apple. >>(3) sympathy for her, and (4) hope for her that she'll find someone with whom she can be happy.<< Yes and yes. I apologize for the bizarre formatting....I can't seem to make my posts space properly today. I think it's a problem with my browser

It's interesting to me that this was your reaction.

"You've alluded to this before, but I don't understand exactly what you mean.

"I was under the impression that she never had sex with you unless she wanted to, but you're saying that you believe that once a month or so, she talks herself into having sex (or steps up to the plate) in order to please you?"
