    Another brand of stupid misunderstanding. Who told you, that "only spouses are afraid to resist a rape"? Learn to understand what you read.

    Good point. What's why we have to have a few wives.

    I'd make a couple of comments here:

    1. I strongly believe in self-determination, self-fulfillment and nobody has the right, piece of paper or not, to make you do something you have no desire to do.

    2. Sex is an integral part of any strong marriage, so if you don't want to have sex with your spouse to the extent that he/she may feel a need to force it, you should reconsider whether or not you are truly interested in or committed to the marriage you're in.

    While not often publically noted, there are situations where the wife is the aggressor.

    I know one. His wife actually complains a lot about her lack of sex due to his not wanting it. It has been years, possibly even a decade.

    Found out it was almost 2 decades. Apparently he quit wanting anything right after their youngest was born and got the desire back around the time the youngest graduated high school.

    I wonder how many men say that but who actually have a "problem" with function and are just embarrassed to let their wives know. Ohhh, that's so sad.

    If it was function it seemed to have fixed itself. It could have been psychological. Who knows? I figure there could be several reasons men wouldn't want to have sex.

    I had a roommate who we (me and my other 2 roommates, along with anyone who spent any time at our apartment) suspected was asexual, until the third apartment I shared with him, I found out he just liked really large women (height and weight). He simply wasn't attracted to any small women. Some guys have really specific attractions (just like some women) and their sex needs are "okay" with that.
