Asking for a friend: “My partner doesn’t want to have sex. They say I can sleep with someone else. Will others judge me?’


Q: I feel bad writing to you as some people would tell me to take this opportunity and others would look at me with disgust. My partner has been struggling with his health for a number of years and finally got a diagnosis a few months ago. While not fatal, it is life changing. Our sex life was non-existent for months as they were not doing well and I was mostly fine with it, if a little frustrated at times. They told me last month that they just couldn’t see sex as a priority right now and that wasn’t going to change for a while as they didn’t have any energy or desire to have sex anymore. They said that if I wanted to have sex with someone else, they would understand, on the condition that I would be discreet and not enter into a relationship with anyone. That was the line they didn’t want me to cross as they felt it posed a risk to the long-term nature of our relationship. But if I accept her on this offer, I worry that there will be repercussions and that others will judge me when they find out.

dr West replies: You’re right. People could take this in different ways. Some might be understanding given the circumstances, and others would see this as a deep betrayal, regardless of your partner’s permission. It’s hard to win, but to be fair, it’s really nobody’s business since they aren’t the ones in the relationship. It might not be a conversation you should have with your family and friends, but obviously you need it to speak about you writing to me keep secrets or Not being able to talk about a pressing issue can be a strain in itself, and when it comes to something this intimate, it can be difficult to know how to handle the pressure and decision you are making you can meet, should deal with.
