Are you afraid that you will fall in love with the friend? You have equated intimate contact with emotional attachment so that maybe this is your fear.
I'm not really afraid. I just don't see how this will improve anything. If a start a romantic relationship with another woman and fall in love with her, I'll still be lacking in the intimacy department with my wife. That was the issue in the first place.
Thank you for the rest of your advice.
I just want to say that I can
equate sex with nothing more than f*cking. Sexual gratification doesn't interest me.
I'll educate myself on this subject. And I'll continue reading stories on this site.
