I have been married for over 40 years. Recently my wife and I have not had an active sex life. I have always been very active but my wife has never been very interested. Needless to say I have resorted to masturbation which I truly enjoy.
I have always masturbated since I was young but as the years have passed I have gotten more and more into it. Every chance I get, usually once a day I am stroking away. My wife is aware that I masturbate but is not really interested in participating. I love to masturbate in front of her but she usually ignores me.
At first I would secretly do it when she was not at home or after she had gone to bed. I have now graduated sometimes to masturbating on the couch, waiting for her to get up in the morning and walking into the living room, finding me stroking away. She will sometimes get her breakfast and sit down beside me but sometimes she will sit in the kitchen, waiting for me to finish.
It is my dream that someday she would join me and experience how wonderful it is! I do not think she masturbates but, who knows, maybe? It's been over five years since we have had traditional sex but she seems to be o.k. with that. I can't believe she could go that long and not experience an orgasm so I have to believe she masturbates when I am not at home or when she is alone.
Who knows, maybe one of these days we will finally be able to express our feelings towards sex and open up some conversation about masturbation. For me that would be the ultimate turn on. Until then I will keep on stroking, hopefully making her more and more comfortable with me doing it, that she will join me.
