Have you ever thought you will never be able to satisfy your husband sexually? My wife said that often… even after I was feeling sexually satisfied. If I was satisfied, and told her so, why did she feel it was not true? More importantly for you, might your husband be satisfied, or closer than you think he is?
In discussing this with people, I find part of the issue is the difference between dissatisfied and curious. A good way to explain this is with chocolate lemon bars.
We used to buy a great lemon bar dessert in a box. I decided I wanted to make it from scratch – it would cost less, probably be healthier, and I could tweak it to perfection. I gathered several lemon bar recipes and made my own from them. The first batch was good, but not great, so I made a couple of changes. The second or third batch was great. At this point, I was satisfied.
However, I thought dark chocolate might complement the tart lemon flavour. I was curious to see if I could mix in chocolate. The first try was a disaster in that it was messy. Eventually I got it right. Had I never gotten it to work it would have been okay, as I was satisfied with the “plain” lemon bars. However, because I followed my curiosity, I now have two versions of the bars we can enjoy.
Being satisfied with sex does not mean you have no additional curiosities. If you never get to try many of those things, it’s okay. If you try one and it doesn’t work out, that is fine. If you try one and it is good, or you can tweak it to become good, you have one more “sexual dessert” you can enjoy.
