One of our readers, Emem, sent in this letter:

My name is Emem, a 28-year-old woman who has been married for six years. Initially, everything was rosy and my husband, Patrick, never gave me a breathing space when it came to sex.

As a sexually active woman, I enjoyed such attention and always looked forward to them. But in the past one year, things have changed so much that I have become so frustrated because Patrick starves me of sex. It gets so bad that I will be lucky if we have sex once in two months.

When it first started, he always gave the excuse of being tired and stressed up from the office but this was the same office he worked in when our sex life was at a premium.

Then it dwindled to a situation where he gets irritated whenever I touch him. I have practically had to beg him to make love to me several times to no avail.

I suspected he is having an affair and my fear was confirmed when I went through his phone and saw many raunchy text messages from different women, describing how hot he is in bed and how they can't wait for him to make love to them again.

I fear any confrontation because he has a temper and that could even snuff out the once-in-two-months sex I get from him.

I am tempted to also get a lover who will satisfy me sexually but I need advice before I do something stupid.


The teaser for the day was:

What would you do if your spouse frustrates you sexually?

How Nigeria voted:

41% - I will also get a lover to satisfy me sexually

37% - I will go to God in prayer to change him/her

22% - I will walk out of the marriage instead of committing adultery

How would you vote?
