Customer Question

I am a gay male who has been dating a guy for about 2 1/2 years. We have always had chemistry but lacked sexual chemistry. I came out shortly before meeting him and lack substantial bedroom experience (which I believe is a turn off to him). We both want to be together but he say that he is not sexually attracted to me. He also says that if he could flip a switch in his mind he would. Additionally, he has not really experienced sexual chemistry with anyone who he has had a relationship with. Furthrer, neither one of us are the most sexual people. Is there anything I can do to get him turned on to me or anything we can do? I love this guy and although our relationship is founded on frinedship it is much more. Help.

Hello desperately

What are your ages?

Why does he get into relationships with people who he has no sexual chemistry with?

Does he sleep with other people? do you?

Does he want to split up?

Reply to Ms Chase's Post: I am 30. He is 32. Niether one of us want to split up becuase we both feel so strongly about our relationship on every other level. Niether one of us have been with other people since we began our relationship. I don't think he can answer why he gets in relationships with people that he does not have sexual chemistry. I believe that something is preventing him from being sexually attracted to me becasue I have tried to push him away in the past and he came back telling me that he completely underestimated his feelings. He was also molested when he was younger, which I think may be the cause of some of these issues. I also beleieve that my lack of experience and fumbling around turns him off when he is in the mood killing all sexual attraction. The times that we have had fun in the bedroom was when he initiated things which caused me to be super relaxed but these times have been infrequent.

Thank you for that additional info. The good thing is that the two of you don't want to split up, so that means that the relationship can be worked on. There seem to be a lot of underlying issues that may need to be looked at. Since he was molested, it could account for his avoidance of sex (hence not getting involved with someone he's sexually attracted to and his infrequent initiations of sex).

The fact is, the two of you are together...and have been for 2 1/2 years, so there's something thats holding you together, sexual or otherwise. Keeping that in mind, and using that bond to work through this would be best. Consider individual or couples therapy to help sort through things and envelope coping skills and mechanisms for communicating with each other.

As for your sexual prowess, you've been together 2 years, you should know something about what each one of you likes by this time, but if not, consider working on it in one or more of the following ways. Make a list of the things that each of you likes, and write each one on a little piece of paper. Drop those papers in a jar marked love, or lovemaking and each night you are both allowed to pick something from the jar to do to each other. You can use separate jars for each of you, or you can throw them both in the same jar and each of you has to do the things that are picked. Also, you want to improve on your intimacy overall. For example, this Friday, agree ahead of time that there will be no sex, but that Friday night will be an intimacy night. Candles only, music you both like, some finger foods like fruit, cheese, crackers, and whatever you both like to drink, and the minimum amount of clothes. No tv, no phones, no computers. Give each other full body massages, with warm oil....take a bristle brush and brush each others bodies from head to toe. Give each other hand, foot and head massages. Talk to each other, tell each other the things you like about each others bodies, what you like about each other in general and just enjoy that quiet tie existing in a world where it's just the two of you. The simple fact is, you can become more intimate, by making a conscious choice to become more intimate.

I welcome your thoughts, let me know if you want to talk more.
