Non-Sexual Touch for Him
I’ve talked to a number of men who would like more non-sexual touch from their wife. Hugging, snuggling, foot and back rubs, holding hands, and all that stuff. I’ve also seen others report this, some with surveys to back up their claims.
I realise some men don’t care about any touch that’s not sexual (and some don’t even care about that), but I think this is far more common than most would guess. Really this is a human thing; we all need touch even if we deny that fact to ourselves.
The tricky part of this is how it may interact with his sexuality. If he’s not having enough sex, non-sexual touch is going to get him turned-on and make his sexual frustration worse. If he’s young and/or has a high drive, non-sexual touch may arouse him even if he’s having sex often enough it’s not a problem. If there’s not enough sex in your marriage, add some sex along with adding non-sexual touch. If non-sexual tends to get him going do it when you are open to sex or after you’ve had sex.
