    My husband and I have been married for 7 years and are currently in a "reboot" . There have been nights I've cried myself to sleep because I so badly want to be intimate with him but don't know how to be anymore. We can't have sex right now and even if he wanted he doesn't respond to my touch. Does anyone have any suggestions? How do we stay connected while we're not physically connected? I feel myself mentally disconnecting from him too and it scares me.

    Hi JayJay,

    I'm sorry to hear about your dilemma. If your husband's issues are caused by porn, however, rebooting should resolve them. It may take some time however.

    In the meantime, have you two explored other ways to be intimate? Intimacy is not all about sex. There is cuddling and kissing and giving each other massages. Such activities stimulate oxytocin which make you feel more connected... and so may help him "rewire" his brain back to you.

    Hope this helps. Please keep us updated.
