Dear Hot Stuff,
Don't get me wrong: I love, love, love sex. In all
previous relationships up until now, I've always been the partner
with the biggest sex drive but my current girlfriend is infused
with a nuclear-powered libido. We are bordering on nymphomania
here! I'm EXHAUSTED! How can I let her down without having her
question my love?

Dear Knackered in Nottingham,
Well, there's a thing! Someone writing to me, not to complain
about too little sex but to complain about too
much! I'm so happy about your email that I'm printing it
off to have framed at this very moment.
This is good news, Knackered. I mean, perhaps not for you, but
for lesbiankind everywhere. There we have it. The opposite of
lesbian bed death DOES indeed exist! Lesbian sex dearth has a cure!
Bugger me if children are the future - nymphomania is!
Of course, dear, darling Knackered, your bewilderment at my
delight is totally comprehensible. Here you are asking for my help
and I'm too busy basking in the cockle-warming happiness that comes
from you being the first ever person to contact me with
regard to this particular sticky issue.
So, now that's out of my system, what to tell you... Firstly, a
good old-fashioned conversation always helps. Talk to your partner.
No fibs, no sugar-coating of the truth. Tell her, "Darling girl, I
adore and love you and you're a fab shag but just sometimes l want
to be able to come in, put my pyjamas on and watch Eastenders in
peace without being sexually harassed. Puh-lease. This doesn't mean
I want you to stop in your naughtily-minded advances full stop, it
just means that occasionally, this particular lean, mean sex
machine needs a lay-by pause in order to grab an all-day breakfast
at Little Chef and refuel".
This is my advice to you, Knackered. Be reassuring, be loving,
but be firm. After all, surely after your girlfriend's bits, the
best other bits of any relationship are the lovely bits; the
cuddling, the chilling, the cooking together. In the words of
George Michael, 'I want your sex' but just not 24/7.
