- Wedding: August 2013 - Rocky Mountains USA
Ok, well you may have tried various ways to address the issue. All we know from your posts is that you seem pretty cavalier about your month-plus-long dry spells and you’re kinda searching validation for getting out of any sex on your honeymoon. It really doesn’t seem to be a good or healthy or promising attitude for starting out a marriage.
I’m not trying to be harsh. Unfortunately I know from personal experience how this situation can be a lot more problematic and damaging than it seems :/
ps – I live in Wyoming so hit me up if you have any questions on the area! Your trip sounds AMAZING!!

roses1400: I think sex is definiltey expected on a honeymoon… It’s supposed to be a romantic super intimate trip and most (but not all) definitions of those notions and also of a honeymoon, in general, include sex. I can say that I didn’t want to do it every night of the honeymoon or lock ourselves in our room doing it all day like they do in the movies… We’ve been together too long and that wouldn’t come naturally for me to want that… So I think it’s okay to not adhere to the stereotypes of honeymoons being sexapaloozas. That said… Yeah, I think NO sex at all on a honeymoon would feel strange and a warning sign that something in the marriage is not right.

If a guy comes up with the idea of a camping honeymoon which exhausts his new bride, he can’t complain if she lacks interest in honeymoon sex. It sounds as if he likes camping more than sex.

southerncharm: I am guessing you did not read through the thread…especially the part where this is HER dream “bucket list” trip and they agreed on the location together. I am totally lost as to where you get the idea he “imposed” this camping honeymoon on her or that is was even all his idea.

zl27: Yep. Get off hormonal bc. It kills your sex drive. If you’re on anti depressants, they can have large side effects to your sex drive as well.
Have you never wanted to celebrate something like valentine’s day, or moving together, getting engaged, et cetera with sex? Are you asexual?

Ok, read some more and see that you need hormonal bc. Is there one that’s low hormone you can take? That might help. Back when I took BC (my Fiance is 100% sterile, so we do not use hormonal BC), I took this – https://www.loloestrin.com/
Also, have you done a lot of traveling? Even if you are type A and everything, at some point you will want a day to relax, even though you really want to do every single thing. It’s honestly more fun to go see each place a few days at a time rather than jam pack everything in one long trip. Do you think you’re both up to hiking for the majority of an 18 day trip? I don’t mean to sound judgemental. I just am wondering. I can definitely go camping for 7-9 days, but after that I start to get tired of it!
I just want you to have fun on your honeymoon, and trying to cram everything in seems like it will be fun, but I’ve heard from a LOT of people that it’s a mistake.
