DEAR DEIDRE: IF my partner allows me to have sex with her – which isn’t often – it’s a quickie.
Then she insists I get up out of the bed.
We don’t live together as we have our own homes. She is 47 and I’m 44.
She always feels tired even though she doesn’t work. Her kids are grown up and she hardly does a thing in the day other than watch box sets.
I am a plumber and I work hard but I don’t get as tired as her.
I love our relationship but I’d love more passionate sex and to be able to cuddle her until we fall asleep.

DEIDRE SAYS: If she is fit and well, then why isn’t she working, volunteering or doing something active?
It is not a healthy lifestyle. Explain you’re worried about her and she should see her GP about this lethargy.
Focus on making sex as satisfying as possible for her so she does not see it as a chore. My e-leaflet on How To Thrill A Woman In Bed can give you tips.
