Just FYI my “email from wife” thread from yesterday is the start of this fine day. I told my wife last night before dinner that I had gotten out of this what I wanted and it was probably best for us to stop for a while. I don’t want to overstay the welcome. Frankly my boy parts were so swollen from the afternoon activities it was hard to walk in the grocery store and I was hurting some…I told her this. She asked politely if I had any sores or bruises and I responded no, and she said “then I think we are doing fine” , she kissed me. After the kids left the dinner table she asked if I was really ok that I did not “get any” today while she did. I finally told her that it satisfies me on a deep level to submit to her, to serve her, to please her…to be rewarded with sex only when I earn it and to be praised when I am good to her. This extends to things that are both sexual and not. She mentioned that I was not like that when we were younger and I explained that lots has changed especially my level of love and trust for her. That she needs to be my fantasy now. There is no other game in town. She was for the first time, perfectly comfortable hearing this from me. It’s probably been a 3 – 5 year journey. When we went to bed we cuddled for almost 2 hours watching TV. We made out during every commercial, I kissed her all over and held her tight. She occasionally presented me with a nipple to suck. She frequently stroked my head with her nails. I asked to be out several times because I know she enjoys saying NO to me. She told me I had been very good but it simply was not long enough yet to let me out…continually saying “soon”…and then finally joking that 2019 might be a good time. Perfect ending to a great day of progress with this!
