Some wives don't want to be compared to an appliance...

I do not generally compare my wife to an appliance, but some times when I want more sex than she does, she says, "I am not a robot."

I told her a week or two ago, I just don't get it. Robots are hard and metal. I don't want to have sex with a robot. Most robots do not have sex. She said robots were without feelings. I want her to have feelings when she has sex, so to me it is a metaphor that I do not relate with well.

For me it depends on my mental state. If my anxiety is high that day attempting to deal with “constant” flirting it more than I can deal with. I have learned on those days I need to tell him where my head is at. That way he can help instead of being a hindrance.

Are you saying I shouldn’t accuse her of being a toaster when she rolls over on me in the middle of the night, and her body temperature has more degrees than a small block Chevy has cubic inches? (That’s basically 283 to 350 for non-car nuts)
Just curious.

Well, most don’t. Mine actually made that comparison herself :lol:

Just don’t tell her she’s “springing” :lol:

I would expect she was referring to the idea that robots just perform on demand without question. Perform a service without needing anything from it. I would suggest you might look behind that statement to see if you can ascertain what it is she is needing but feels you may not know how to supply or that she needs it at all. It’s likely not a sexual or physical need.

I think maybe a better metaphor might be one I heard a favorite comic use: men are like two-cycle engines and women like diesels. Fire a 2-C up and it is at full strength immediately, quick response, fast power, limited lifespan. Diesels take a little while to get up to full performance (for the non-mechanical types, it’s because they are heat and pressure dependent), and if it’s cold, they’ll need some help to get started, but once you get them up to temp, they can run on, and on, and on....
