Jalan’s and my sex life has been in rough shape (by our standards), due in large part to tremendous external strains on us over the past year. To be clear, our intimacy in other domains has not suffered at all — we’re as strong as partners as we ever have been, and stronger in some ways.
Last night, we had a long conversation about what the dream sex life for each of us would be, what the barriers have been, and the beginnings of conversation about ways to surmount those barriers.
The details are not for public consumption, but it was a great discussion to have, and good progress is being made.
This is how we handle strains. There are reasons we’ve never had a fight, and we’re damned proud of our approach.
