Perhaps it is better to focus on the truth that you and your husband are ok with this, that you both are onboard and that you don't have to explain it. Why do you have to even try to make "no sex" work if you both are ok with it? Why close off that avenue?
That being said...if "no sex" couldn't work and this was not ok with your husband, how would you explain it to him? I think the answer is inside you...why wouldn't it actually work? What will happen if you were to deny yourself this? Would you not be able to even have a freindship with him? What would really happen?
