A co-worker pointed out this article to me today and we had some good laughs about it.  I'll attach the original letter/response to the end of this post.  It's definitely worth a read if you need some laughs, but I will warn you it is quite long.  

For those of you too lazy to read it, I'll give you the gist.  A doctor of sorts, refers to himself as a person who saves children's lives for a living, is wondering why his loving wife, also mother of three children under the age of 6 won't have sex with him.  As you would expect, the response to his letter is quite hilarious and puts him in his place.  But I wanted to share my thoughts as I read it too.

1. This man is a doctor and claims to be saving children's lives.  Now, I'm not sure if he's just being a narcissist and is a pediatrician or is a pediatric cardiologist who legitimately saves lives, but either way, he really conveys a sense of entitlement.  That's something that can definitely ruin the mood in the bedroom.  "Everyone's hero" coming home to the lowly housewife who should be worshiping him for his good deeds on a daily basis.  I can guarantee she either feels inadequate because of his ego or she just rolls her eyes when he comes home and opens his mouth, I'm hoping it's the latter.

2. His wife has birthed three children in the past six years, their youngest child is one year old.  Can you imagine how exhausted this woman must be?  I don't have any children, but I have a lot of friends with children.  I can't imagine dealing with three kids of such young ages, especially if she is their sole caretaker during the day.  She's probably just holding it together during the day and when her husband comes home, she probably is thankful for some help and all he can think about is the two of them getting it on.  Nothing like a child vomiting on you while another smashes a vase by accident to really get you in the mood.

3. If he's a doctor, he probably isn't around much.  Say he works at a hospital.  That means he probably works 10-12hr shifts and only has off weekends twice a month.  Is your wife supposed to visit you at work to get some romantic time in?

4. He wants it more frequently and more variety in it.  Dude, sometimes you have to pick your battles.  Maybe if you didn't have such high expectations, you wouldn't be so disappointed.  You may have to settle for more variety and less frequency simply because a woman is not a performing monkey, it takes work from you too.  There's no magic switch to get them in the mood.  Plus with some women, it could be as simple as doing some housework so she feels more relaxed and that gets her in the mood.  What I'm saying is think outside the box and put in more effort than taking her out to a romantic dinner one time.

5. Maybe she just doesn't want to get pregnant and have four kids under six.  I'm not sure if you were attempting to have three kids so close together, I'm inclined to think not.  She must just be a fertile lady.  In which case, she probably is already losing her mind with three kids and can't imagine throwing another one into the mix.  

In summary dude, chill out and go get a vasectomy.  Maybe when you've healed, she'll treat you to something special.
