Not sexually attracted to husband: how to fix it

Don’t ask yourself why I am not sexually attracted to husband.
Ask instead, – how to be attracted to my husband again?

How To Make Your Marriage Sexy Again

Our culture tells us that we deserve more. Today, if two characters in a movie express the slightest interest in each other, they jump in bed and fall in love.

But just as couples come together, so too do they disunite. Absent the tangy bloom of early courtship and seduction, we are often left with tired couples with unmet needs and mismatched libidos.

Hollywood makes it pretty clear that romance within marriage doesn’t sell tickets.

That’s not interesting. That’s not provocative.


At one time,  popular women’s magazines like Cosmopolitan would feature articles like “Your Husband’s Biggest Secret”, or “How to Drive Your Hubby Wild”,  or “How to become sexually attracted to my husband again”. Then the editors stopped using the word “husband.” Now they use the term “your boyfriend,” “your guy,” or “partner.” It’s as if husbands (and marriage for that matter) are no longer relevant.

Nowadays on the Netflix rom-com, very few married couples even hint at a satisfying sex life.

One more example of the culture getting it backward. Why is it that married women are embarrassed to go into Victoria’s Secret, but teenage girls aren’t?

Since we can’t count on Hollywood, the media, or retailers, let’s take it upon ourselves to reclaim romance for our husbands.

Some thoughts on how to become sexually attracted to my husband again

 It’s probably your hormones

Consult your doctor.

If you are not sexually attracted to your husband, talk to your medical provider—there may well be hormonal issues involved, along with a variety of neurological and physiological factors.

Women sometimes feel more comfortable with the idea that their sexual desire has everything to do with their chemistry and nothing to do with their life.

After all, these days it’s easy to change your chemistry!

But hormones are a part of the context that shapes a woman’s sexual wellbeing, so changing them can make only a small impact.

This is another reason why the keenly sought “pink Viagra” is such an unpromising approach.

Stress, self-compassion, trauma history, relationship satisfaction, and other emotional factors have far more influence on a woman’s sexual desire than any hormone.

If you sometimes experience low desire, unless there’s some medical issue interfering, chances are you don’t have to fix yourself—you’re not broken—you only have to change your context.

Our culture tells us that we deserve more

The TV shows and movies we’ve watched since we were little girls and boys promise us a life of adventure, and, of course, everlasting—passionate—love.

But just as couples come together, so too do they disunite.

Our society is one of serial monogamy. Absent the tangy bloom of early courtship and seduction, we are often left with tired couples with unmet needs and mismatched libidos.

Could the shift in desire simply be a result of the ebb and flow of monogamy, the preoccupations of family life and domesticity, and the way our bodies, at least women’s bodies, were designed? And if that is the case, isn’t it perhaps unrealistic to expect that we should have an ever-robust libido when, after all, science reveals that desire tends to dissipate as we age?

Many women find themselves in libido-killer relationships. That creates a predicament, for discordant desire has a way of undermining even the healthiest and most loving couples.

If this is your situation, you may ask, Who in the relationship is in the best position to fix the sexual stalemate? Is it you? Is it him?

Why not think about love the way we think about the laws of motion?


Here is Newton’s first law: An object’s inertia causes it to continue moving at the same speed and in the same direction unless it is acted upon by an unbalanced force.


Inertia, then, means resistance to change. If the forces on us are balanced—that is, in equilibrium—change will not occur.

Inertia is also what happens in long-term relationships, which start off heady and intoxicating, but over time drain themselves of passion. We can counter the sexual stalemate, but the wider the sexual gap between partners is, the greater the unbalanced force that needs to be applied.

 It seems that the longer we stand in the space of lovers turned friends— the greater the work required to restore the connection with your husband.

Work? –  Yes!

Whoever said that love and desire would be as easy and plentiful as grass?


Oh, that’s right, Hollywood did, with her white-veil fantasies and fluorescent smile. But Hollywood forgot to tell you that finding love isn’t the hardest battle. Maintaining it is.


Maintaining jouissance, spark and eros is difficult. After all, we are working against inertia, against nature. Marrying for love is a twentieth-century Western phenomenon.

And we are scriptless, left on open terrain without signposts to direct us to adult desire.


If you are in a relationship where the sexual current has slowed, an important question to ask is, –


How YOU can improve this situation?


You may look for a new lover to be heard, witnessed, and appreciated

It is this freshness that gives an affair voltage. At its heart, an affair is highly narcissistic—more about you than the other person.

When women cheat, it is often so that they can be seen differently too—beautiful, sexy, exciting, larger than they are in the four walls of their home relationship.


Maybe try to return the Love to your Hubby

Who in the relationship is in the best position to fix the sexual stalemate?

You are. You decided to commit to this person.

It is likely that lust once resided between you.

It is possible to get it back,  reclaim your sex drive and replenish your sensual relationship.

The first steps—the planning, the seducing, the facing rejection, the moving beyond waiting for spontaneous desire—hold many back from attempting sensual intimacy.

And while desires are held back, swallowed whole, new desires can form . . . for others, for a different life, for a place where one is simultaneously understood, appreciated, and adored.


You may not realize it, being too busy paying bills and putting sunscreen on toddlers’ noses,

but your relationship is under threat.


Give sensuality a proper place in your life and learn what turns you on

If we can set it up so we feel both attractive and relaxed and are in an environment free of any reminder of chores, half the battle is won.

Will getting out of the house in a dress that you love help you remember a feeling of desire? Book a babysitter and go out somewhere fanciful: an ice rink, a river bed.

Are you a hot-bath-and-massage kind of woman?  Have him run the water for you, wash your hair, dry you the way he dries your children, careful to pat each crevice.

And then touch you slowly.

Touch you without wanting anything back.

Explore your sensuality in new ways

To get your desire for your Hubby back, and explore your sensuality in new ways, you need to create time for self-pleasure.

This could mean setting aside a time when you apply creams to your body in a sensual ritual.

A time when you feel your hips, thighs, and breasts and reflect upon things that make you feel sexual and beautiful and connected to your body.

Slip some erotic poems into your reading.

To create a more sensual life, we need to allow time and space for sexuality to feel its way into shape.

Creating an environment where libido can emerge, where you can affirm the importance of your partner and reconnect to yourself as a sexual woman, enables your relationship to maintain eroticism.

A popular method of rekindling romance and strengthening the marital bond is to schedule weekly or monthly date nights.

Watch a mainstream film that has a few hot sex scenes, it should help your fantasy.

Here is a list of my favorite sexy movies:

  • Basic Instinct (Director’s Cut)
  • Better Than Chocolate
  • Body of Evidence
  • Crash (Director’s Cut)
  • The Fluffer
  • Henry and June
  • The Hunger
  • Jade
  • Last Tango in Paris
  • 9 1/2 W e e k s
  • Secretary
When it comes to sex, you need to look at each other in new ways.

This means acknowledging the emotional and contextual factors that influence desire, such as stress, self-compassion, trauma history, and relationship satisfaction.

Rather than seeking external solutions or quick fixes, it’s important to focus on creating a supportive and intimate environment within your marriage. This involves open communication with your partner and consulting a medical professional if there are underlying hormonal issues.

By prioritizing self-exploration, sensuality, and shared experiences, you can discover new ways to reconnect with your own desires and rediscover the passion in your relationship.
