I’ve been reading your advice column in the Coast in Halifax for a while, and it seems that most solutions to relationship problems revolve around sex. Everyone wants it or needs it, we should f** before dinner, or we can spice up our sex life in this certain way to be happy. 

What about someone who doesn’t want to have sex, ever? I’ve asked other people for advice, and the answer is usually “take one for the team,” have sex to keep them happy.

Is that the only way I could find happiness in a relationship? It’s not something I want to do — but at this point, I don’t see any other options.

I didn't realize that was a quote and typed a response and don't know how to delete my posts.

Thanks for sharing this! Kinda heart-breaking, especially as I know that feeling of "taking one for the team" but can't begin to know what it feels like for a woman. For a cis white dude like myself, it's pretty crummy.
