I am looking for inputs from other catholic men that are and have been married for some time and their current dealings with intimate sex with their spouses. The lack of normal erections makes things difficult when the libido is at a high to exercise normal IC. Are there other avenues that are taken to satisfy the marital unitive love and intimacy required a couple?
I'm wondering what is OK under the situation with no ejaculate , no normal erections and well beyond the child bearing age. We have been married for 41 years and the sex drive is still there. What to do?
