No preference, though my wife might think I prefer her initiation.

I think it should be both ways and I need to work on initiating it.




I always initiate it, would be nice for her to initiate it once in a while.

Both. The more the merrier.

I love my beautiful wife. When I initiate it sometimes feels like you are just to tired because you don't seem to be responding. I will stop rather than be pushy.

Initiated. I like to feel wanted.
I like both sometimes.

I like both too. When I'm feeling sexy it's nice to initiate and feel like I can drive you crazy with desire.

Have it initiated

depends on my mood.

Initiated definately. Everyone wants to feel wanted and when your partner initiates intamacy it's an indication that your desired. Sometimes I intiate, but lately I have had a low libido and I have let it dictate those moments for me.


Him to initiate it.
I know. Our sex life is almost non existent now. I wish I knew the answer. I think we just need to continue to work on things and remember we love each other.
