I have a feeling she might waiting for a clear sign that you actually want to have sex with her (back to uhtred). Bouncing the idea around in the room a bit waiting till someone shows a clear indication - ('it's getting late' maybe an ok move in Britain where I live, where everyone is polite and drinks tea all day long, but not in the general world, I would have thought
It seems a bit unclear to me (sorry if I got it wrong) why you play board games with her which don't involve sex. Too considerate maybe?
After a week of no sex, I literally tell my wife that my balls are blue colour and if she doesn't open her legs, there will be an explosion.
(Ok that has to be done semi-jokingly).
But I think some women enjoy knowing when their husband is desperate. I don't think it's necessarily a weakness to show sexual frustration. Nor does it have to be a 'control' thing on woman's part.
It could be a straightforward 'game'.
Alex feels frustrated to always be in the passenger's seat but did you know that all the control can come from the 'passive' backseat driver? :-) you have the power to accept or reject her schedule thingy.
My guess is this behaviour becomes 'conditioned' when too many rejections have taken place. My advice: unless there's a valid reason to be rejected (illness etc), don't accept it. Make a fuss/confront. You carry it around with you and end up in a vicious circle.
I know I make it sound unreasonably easy. There are clearly cases where it's not straightforward (i.e. Rape histories etc, asexuality etc).
