Hi Rick, We are recovering from infidelity in our marriage. Post-affair sex started already two weeks after discovery, and quite surprisingly, our sex life has improved on many levels. It has been more frequent, exciting and physically satisfying. It is more emotional for me than ever before. The one major problem is that my betrayed wife brings intrusive thoughts so penetrative sex does not bring positive emotions to her and it results in severe triggers as we have had to stop what have been doing. She is worried that our sex life will never be pure and emotionally fulfilling. What would you suggest as the best ways to help my wife with her triggers? I really want to help her.
