The 3 Sexiest Things Men Can Do for Wives in Life and in Bed

I’ve been a couples therapist for nearly four decades,  and when  I give advice, I base it on a combination of my years of experience counseling couples, my personal experience with balancing marriage, work, sex and children,  combined with a healthy dose of reading the research.  If you’re a married man who is interested in sex, and you’re past the lust stage of your relationship, your number one question is usually why your wife is nowhere as interested in sex as she was when you were courting.  And you’d like to know what you can do to
