[ - ] What kind of water do you drink at home? I drink bottled water outside and at home have a brita filter which we use with tap water. Was reading up on this and found out that although lots of water bottles are BPA free, they still leech harmful chemicals into the water. Also reading that tap water is not so good for you. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] I recently had anal sex for the first time. It did not hurt and I enjoyed it quite a lot. I did not wind up staying over my BF's place that night, so dressed and went home a bit afterward. When I got home, there was fresh blood in my underwear. Nothing hurt, and there was no continuing of the bleeding the next day. BF did ask me if all was ok b/c he noticed blood on the sheets the next morning. All was fine for about three days and now, four days later, again fresh blood in underwear. Its not menstrual, but I can't really tell if it's vaginal or rectal bleeding. What kind of doctor should i go to? Proctologist or gynecologist or both? Nothing hurts, but the blood spotting is worrisome to me. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] I think DH has intimacy issues. He is much more considerate and affectionate after sex for a day or two. Then he goes back to his regular pattern of not being considerate. Eventually after a few weeks he gets to be drawn out or resentful towards me because we don't have sex as often as he wants or needs. When I ask him why he is acting like continuously since he won't easily answer, he would say that he is upset because we don't have sex as often. But he doesn't act or say anything that would give me any clue that he wants to have sex. On the contrary, if he wants sex he turns his back to me and does nothing then the next day starts becoming resentful. He acts as if I should initiate the sex. Plus he becomes initmate in terms of sharing his feelings only after we have sex. Other times he doesn't share anything simply because he tries not to feel much. He doesn't want to see a therapist because he thinks everything is just fine. This recurring situation drives me crazy because each time he gets resentful I find myself at a defensive position as if I am the only one to blame for our sex routine. How can I deal with this? 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The only part about this that seems "abnormal" is that he expects you always to initiate sex. The rest (him being more considerate, emotionally available, etc after sex) is just like my DH and many other men I know. It sounds like you're playing this game right along with him and you guys need to communicate more directly about how to handle the frequency and initiating of sex. [ Reply | More ]

p.s. My DH will initiate sex, but at times he has acted like yours. When we talk about it he says it's because he "wants me to pursue him" and show that I want him. Honestly, sometimes I don't, but I make the effort to seem like I do to keep the intimacy rolling. [ Reply | More ]

I am not naive to say something like he would never do that.
