Sex after disability: Depends on what his disability is. Also the brain plays a major part in all aspects of sex so how he is mentally has major effects on your sex life.

Many issues: Many issues here. Does your husband's condition prevent sex? If he can have sex, is he able to have an erection and ejaculation? Are their other physical barriers preventing sex? Are their psychological barriers? This is such a complex and important issue, that i cannot do it justice in just a few words. Discussing with your husband's doctor in an open and frank manner would be best. Good luck.

Depending on how the disability affects his sexual function, with mutual understanding and some adjustment and/or compensation, it will work out. Remember, more than any thing else, you really need each other to pull through hard times .

A 21-year-old member asked:

How can I communicate to my partner that sex doesnt interest me?

1 doctor answer6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Danny Proffitt
Family Medicine 43 years experience
Openly and honestly: Sex is the ultimate in intimacy for both partners. What one does affects the other. Each must know the other emotionally, physically, mentally, and intimately. Tell the partner you have issues with desire and see if there are things that can be better to re-interest you in sex. There may be medical issues. Get a good check up and needed testing. Counselling may be needed. Good luck!

A 36-year-old member asked:

Is it normal to have an aa sponsor of the opposite sex?

3 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Anatoly Belilovsky
Pediatrics 35 years experience
It's irrelevant;: Whether your sponsor is the same or opposite sex, or if the sponsor's sex changes halfway through your recovery, makes zero difference. You both have the same relationship with alcohol - you've both had enough. That's all that matters.

Does playful sex work better in the beginning of relationships or later on?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Samuel Miles
Psychiatry 47 years experience
It depends: If you and your partner are both in a playful mood, sex can be very playful. Early in a relationship when responsibilities have not built up opportunities for play may be more plentiful. But maintaining a capacity for play is a valuable trait in many happy relationships.
A 26-year-old male asked:

Why is sex feel so good.?

2 doctor answers11 doctors weighed in
Dr. Steven Reidbord
Psychiatry 36 years experience
To make babies!: "why" questions are hard to answer in the natural sciences, as they imply there's a purpose or intent. Biology usually relies on evolution principles to answer "why" questions. In this case, the good feelings from sex motivate the behavior, resulting in propagation of the species. If you seek a neurological explanation (how not why), perhaps a neurologist can answer.
