You’re married. He’s hurting you and making you feel rejected. Why are you worried his feelings will be hurt if you try to talk to him about this? Masturbation is a very natural thing and its your body. He should not be pouting because you masturbate. It doesn’t even matter if you have sex everyday and still masturbate. If you want to do it to your own body, then do it. He can deal with it and accept it like an adult.
I have a higher sex drive than my fiancee so I get it. Have you made sure it’s nothing related to a medical condition? Does he make you feel loved otherwise? Lack of sex is one of the biggest reasons for divorce and infidelity so talking about this openly is a must.
You really need to tell him everything you told us about how you feel, the rejection, the hurt, all of it. He is an adult and he has a sex life so he can talk about it. Have you considered open relationship? It’s a drastic measure for a lot of people but it can also help and I know couples who does have it and made their relationship stronger.
Just don’t be afraid to talk to him and ask him quesitons.
