Hi all, I've been lurking reading a lot of posts and decided to join in. My name is Brian I am 38 years old been married for 13 years and have lived in a relatively sexless marriage for 12 of them. After reading a lot of posts and going to counseling I cannot believe how much in common my sm is with everyone else on these boards. thank you for letting me join in on the discussions!

Welcome brianbk,...Sorry you find yourself here, but there is a wealth of information and experience to draw on as you navigate your way through your SM. Hopefully you will find somethings of value to you and your marriage in your reading and time spent here.
I too was blown away by the common threads found among the membership here. Not sure if you are doing marriage counseling or individual counseling but my advice is don’t hold back. Spill it all, and don’t be afraid to fire the counselor and find another if you aren’t getting positive results.

Welcome brianbk ! It is a crappy club we are all forced into but there is solace in community. Feel free to start a thread elsewhere and spill your full story. There is good feedback to be found here as well.
This the "Shoutbox" -- basically a site-wide, group chat. (It's only visible to members.)

petrushka: Just attended a lecture on local history. Apparently the Presbyterian Scottish refugees who settled here called a 'frolic', what the Amish would call a 'barn raising'. First a working bee, then dancing and feasting.

mirrororchid: Sorry, dude. I think resentment has been the fuel for action in some SMs. It can be part of a process, eventually helpful.

Handy: I just read "The Babylon Bee" article "Blockage Cleared, Ships Moving At Record Speed As Chick-Fil-A Workers Put In Charge Of Suez Canal." Good humor.
