    Umm, neither of us are “in control” with sex. And honestly, I’d think twice about anyone who used sex as a manipultation tool in a relationship. I hope you’ve worded your OP poorly, and you don’t mean it the way it sounds………

    @Wonderwoman217:  I agree. Sex shouldn’t be used to manipulate each other.

    @catracha:  I think just the word “control” has a bad connotation when speaking in the context of a relationship.

    If what you’re trying to say is that even when you’re mad at your husband, you still feel like having sex with him, but he doesn’t want to have sex with you if he’s mad at you, then that’s normal, and has nothing to do with control. I wouldn’t want to have sex with someone who I was mad at, either. You apparently are just able to separate the two, and that’s great if it works for you, but obviously it doesn’t work for your husband.

    I think a more appropriate way to convey what you mean is that you have a higher sex drive than your husband. But, if you feel that he’s giving you a “time out” with sex, then that to me, speaks more about the dynamics in the other aspects of your relationship. Is he doing it out of spite, because he knows refusing you will make you upset, or is he simply refusing because he honestly just doesn’t feel like sex with you when he’s upset?

    He is, because he never wants it and I always do but I’d never force him.

    He is.   I never really want to have sex when I’m mad at him, but he doesn’t care.  He has this really annoying way of making me laugh, and then eventually seducing me. I hate it!

    He is in control most of the time.  We like it that way.  Sometimes, we switch roles and I take the lead.

    I don’t think she’s saying he uses sex manipulatively.  She said she still likes to have sex when they’re mad at eachother and he doesn’t.  That’s not manipulation and it’s perfectly understandable.  I’m not in the sexiest, most loving mood when Fiance and I are fighting.
