Inappropriate: No doctor can answer this question. You need counseling. But i'd get the household help if it make my life easier.
Dr. Missid Ghanem

Therapy not more sex: If the "household help" is needed so that you have more time for sex & if "sex addiction" is an accurate diagnoses, then your husband needs treatment (therapy) not more sex! giving him more sex would be kin to giving an alcoholic more alcohol to placate him/her. Also, he may be less resistant to start couple therapy, which is advised anyway, in light of the "loyalty" comment. Best wishes.

How can retirement improve my sex life?

Maybe yes/no: Retirement helps to reduce the stress of a job but in itself brings new forms of stress. If a pt has erectile dysfunction caused by a medical structural problem it won't get better? I guess you will have more time available for sexuality?

Which drugs?: It all depends on what drugs you are doing. Best treatment for opioid addiction is suboxone. May also consider inpatient detox and then an intensive out patient program. Also, support groups.

Why is sex addiction difficult to treat in younger people?

2 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Peter Forster
Psychiatry 36 years experience
Focus of young: For a number of reasons sexual activity is much higher in young people anyway. For instance, hormone levels tend to stimulate interest. But also young people are surrounded by messages in the media and social media encouraging relationships and sexuality. All of this makes treatment harder, but certainly not possible.
A member asked:

Why does air come from my vagina during or after sex?

Dr. Michael Swor

Vaginal air bubbles: Sexual activity can sometimes cause air bubbles to collect in the vagina, which then are expelled during or after sex. It's not a problem and not unusual. Get your regular gyn checkup to be sure that is what it is.
