Remember, don't ask... always take the LEAD. Remember also...I was just like your wife for 19 years. I changed my whole outlook on sex/relationships after my husband took the LEAD.
Oh, and one other thing, I ALWAYS showered before sex...I got over that real quick.
Actually...I think the shower first worked perfectly. I didn't have to surprise her with a sudden major move. But, she obviously was clued into the expectation, once we hit the shower...and were naked together for the first time in 2 years. She knew what was up, and had a few moments to mentally prepare....without me giving up the "lead." It created a more gradual escalation...while establishing the outcome up front.
Oh...and no...she didn't respond to the text. She DID respond to the email (work), later, about something to do with Survivor. So..maybe she just hasn't seen her cell phone yet.
