    Mismatched sex drives in a long term relationship

    My girlfriend and I have been dating for 16 months and we’ve been dating seriously and thinking about getting engaged for the last 6 to 8 months. I’m completely happy with every aspect of our relationship. One issue I’ve had for a long time is an overactive sex drive. I can have sex and 10 minutes later, my body feels like nothing happened. I’m emotionally and mentally satisfied with our sex life but physically, my body is just out of whack. There have been a couple dry spells in our relationship (typically 2-5 weeks) for various reasons (health, schedules, etc) and each time there is a very good reason why we don’t have sex (not lack of attraction). She had a very conservative upbringing and sometimes feels guilty about sexual activity and I don’t want to pressure her on this. She has also told me that she feels uncomfortable with the thought of me masturbating so I have avoided it during the time we’ve dated. I’m wondering if anyone has had a similar experience and can help.
