So, as a quick side, I know I've seen something like this in this forum before, but for the life of me I can't find a search function on this new forum. Am I just staring right at it with man blindness? Can a mom on here use her homing beacon uterus to find it for me?
So anyways, last weekend, I was busy trying to hang with the younger kids playing in an adult soccer league I'm in. I'm 37, and 99% of the rest are mid 20's or less. As I'm chasing a ball to keep it from going out of bounds, I had a funny twist, my knee went in and backwards, and I heard the tell tale POP of a torn ACL. I've hobbled around for this last week, and I'm having surgery on Wednesday. At 6:45 in the AM at that! I mean good gravy!
So anyways, I'm going to be mildly out of commission for several weeks. I'll be in a brace, stitches, and all that goodness. Physical therapy, pains, aches, but thankfully in 6-8 weeks I can be running again. Yay!
Which brings me to sex. I know there's the whole aspect of "life goes on" and whatnot, and I'm fine on that part. My particular issue revolves around our "rut" as it were. While I'm very open to new and trying things, or reinventing the wheel in new ways, my wife is very much not. She enjoys sex, but as compared to me in a very limited fashion. And I know "limited" is very much not the correct word, because each person has their own opinions and feelings, and I get all that. But for example sex for her is best with me on top, and her doing as little as possible. I don't mean that in a lazy way, I mean that in a "if she gets distracted it starts from scratch" way. She doesn't like to be on top, and she does not like oral, in either giving or receiving. Which is fine normally.
Where I'm going to run into trouble is when I have a clunky leg brace on, I'm not exactly going to be able to have sex like she likes. But I'll be damned if this is turned into an excuse to just hang it up for a long time. As while she does enjoy sex during it, she's told me before that sex is not important to her like it is to me.
So, what I'm curious for is a think tank approach. What are your thoughts on what we can do during this timeframe? Have any of you had a similar injury and what can you share?
