The original question was,” if your partner WANTED regular sex”, WANT, to me ,imply’s desire. If my wife desired or wanted sex, I would give it to her, enthusiastically I might add,because I still love her after 30 years of marriage.
I’m hearing a lot of conditions, in this thread. He would have to...... or she would have to...... If your partners physical or mental issues magically disappeared over night and they desired (or were able to) have sex wit you would you give it to them? My answer- YOUR DAMN RIGHT I WOULD!!!!!
To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under the sun.
baza, the way I see it, having sex with the spouse feels like Charlie Brown, Lucy and the Football.
Also intimacy is about chemistry and if the chemistry is gone it cam be just humping and still feeling like an outsider.
I also have read some sexless relationships never recover even if regular sex starts again and there is usually a very awkward time period if and when a sexual relationship is resumed. I have read both good and not so god stories about sex returning to the relationship.
I'd love to have a full-on, carnal relationship with my husband. However, with all circumstances considered, I'd wonder: Is this out of pity, duty, or guilt? Is he doing this because he loves me, because he wants me?
I'm so jaded, I have to put the first clause in the "conditional perfect" tense: I would have loved to have a full-on carnal relationship with my spouse.
It just isn't there any more. I have those same questions (as @andie), and they are a huge libido killer when I start to consider them.
1) I think at this point: I just don't trust her. I think I would view any advance on her part as simply a placating gesture to keep me around.
2) And, worse: I think I'm 100% stuck this way. In other words, I can't imagine she has ANY chance of changing my mind on #1.
I think that means... the marriage is over. Right?

apocrypha: The "feminist agenda" has changed across the past 60 years. Some feminists of the 60's call the current iteration "fainting couch feminism", thinking it a subversion and betrayal of women's lib. Hard to get a bead on what folks think, using a broad label.

apocrypha: No aspect of that article (which I amount to a magazine offering bad diet advice) promotes rape, coercion (beyond seduction), sexual assault, and I don't understand your public performance suggesting that they would be and thus implicating bfar.

mirrororchid: pfar, being sensitive means understanding how others think and feel. It doesn't mean you are compelled to adopt their thoughts and feelings. This is a matter of understanding people including loved ones. If you aren't sensitive, you lack tools to

mirrororchid: live well. You need not soften, but you should be able to understand vulnerability. Recognizing others' distress provides me with cues when I need to use self-control or extend help. If you're strong, you should be helping others. Use what works.
