Dr. Lamb Fantasies worry wife THE FAMIIY CIRCUS By Lawrence i'.. Lamb, M.D, DEAR DR. LAMB - We arc a couple m our 50s and this is our problem with the sex aci , 1 just cannot respond i« rm ; husband the way I would like lo . His approach always turns me ' o f ' - H e keeps referring to other : wom TM during ihe s« act. how much they turn him on I [ OS1 . interest immediately [ j U5I , wn't help myself. I feel like a . substitute wife competing with i other women Do you think he has been intimate with these women'. 1 They are all vendor friends of mine and all seem to be very happily married. . Me docs hot seem (o be abk to ' reach a climax unless he refers tothern. I feel as if l a m just being used. Thai he doesn't reallv need me lo perform It makes it very difficult to establish a good" relationship and sex has become very boring to me. Hope you can give me some help with this problem. DEAR READER - Vouhave every reason lo be annoyed and bored with sex under those circumstances The problem is not so m u c h your husband fantasizing about other women but his failure lo do the things that please and stimulate you. Men and women biith engage in sexual fantasies That is normal. Such fantasies cover the e n t i r e g a m u t o f s e x u a l behavior This definitely includes thinking of having sex with other women and olher men. It includes sexual acts thai are commonly loibiddcr, in our culture. And. such fantasies ; commonly occur even while f having sex with one's mate Good r e l a t i o n s b e t w e e n i ; m a l e s , t h o u g h , m e a n s a I ; mutually satisfying experience. ! . Obviously ignoring you w h i l e ' ! verbalizing fantasies ignores i ; your needs during such an ex' ·periencc. To achieve good. ! '. mutually satisfying relations, il ' is important that a couple have good verbal communications You need to talk to your bus- band about this and point out to him that it is affecting your appreciation and enjoyment of him. Tell him plainly that he is not very appealing to you sexually under these circumstances. it's normal for a woman to i want lo be loved during in[ timate relations. That means i the man sliould give his alten- Etiqn lo her or nol bother at all j The same a p p l i e s to the I woman's response to her mate SI wonder how yuur husband ,-ould like il if you started lalk- ipng about all the men you know ;'and how sexy they aie d u r i n g j ; your relationships 0 | You should not bo upsel about j the fantasies, only iliat vou have lo be exposed to them and are not getting the attention you need. Looking at history and different cultures, it is clear that humans are capable of almost any form of sexual behavior, rather than a carefully s t r u c t u r e d r e l a t i o n s h i p between marital partners. The fantasies help to relieve tensions and f r u s t r a t i o n s that n a t u r a l l y develop when society d e m a n d s t h a i a m a n or a woman restrict his or her sex [Ic lo the marriage and even then within certain limits. This is not an argument for permissiveness li is a rccogni- I'on of reality. [ often think of sex as parallel to man's sense of hunger. We do have a n a t u r a l inclination to grab food and eat 11 when w e are hungry. To live with other people as acceptable members of society we have to learn 10 eat the way our culture Hunts people should eat Bad table m a n n e r s may rc-flect Kltal we could be if nature took Us course, but they also reflect lack- of t r a i n i n g , self-discipline and consideration for other people. The same is t r u e ot sex. Bad s e x u a l b i ? h a \ i o r m a y w e l l reflect what we could be w i t h no t i a i n m g . if we followed, w i t h o u t r e s e r v a t i o n , o u r n a t u r a l instincts Such behavior is nut acceptable to organized society. So we learn good table manners and good sexual habits rather than remaining at the a n i m a l level and living like animals. Sexual behavior is often conditioned by habit. This has a lot to do with what lurns on some people. Your husband may have conditioned himself to his fantasies and that is why he has trouble without them.' This is also true of animals. I was amused by an account of a stud horse that became conditioned to what his stable groom did. When the groom turned to ihe left in leading the stud out of the stable the stallion would become highly excited, but if he turned to the r i g h t he relaxed. Why? Because when the groom turned lo the left he led the stud out 10 Ihe breeding pen. when he turned to the right there was going to be no sex thai day. and the stud was t u r n ed out lo graze. Repetition of certain acts or rituals along w i t h sex con- d i t i o n s the a n i m a l or the human lo a degree of sexual responsiveness This is one part of Ihe total concept of conditioned responses that affects our total behavior, not only in the sexual area, but also in other areas of life. My best advice is lo talk to your husband and see if he c a n ' t realize that you too are conditioned not lo hearing about t h e o l h e r .girls b u t a b o u t vo'jrself. D E A R D U .

To Buy, Sell, or Rent Dial 466-7891 or 459-4664 Dear Folks: We hear a lot these days about the problems of the elderly or Senior Citizens, but often don't really realize just how they feel. So let's stop a minute and think, 1 want to share just one of the many letters that I receive-this one from a dear "Senior Citizen "-which I think sums up what the vast majority are trying to say. We hear from many Senior Citizens, and I believe they want to be treated simply as people... Individual human beings and, most of all, just loved-whieh is what all of us want! Right? Hers is a good "LETTER OF THOUGHT" me thinks, so here 'tis . . Heloise i t » Dear Heloise: The years pass as regularly for the young as they do for the old. When a person is involved in making a life, the patten is so plain-first childhood, (hen adulthood and then the harvest of the stewardship--how one has used his talents, his abilities and his power to produce a product we linow as man. We help to make the environment we live In and become a part of social llie. Time passes quickly and we do nol notice when we become one of Ihe so called "elderly," because we are actively enjoying life as usual If our physical bodies have nol become sick or afflicted. I want to be one of the "group" until I myself feel it's time I slow to my ability, and not be dropped or set aside as an "elderly" citizen or given special attention. if along my way In li/e t have done things to deserve friends, they will not need lo be told what to do for me. They know my likes and dislikes and they respond in their attention to me. I resent being visited by communities of people who come because of duty, or because I've had enough birthdays to be known as an elderly citizen. 1 have always loved We, been active and gathered friends of all ages. 1 have wrinkles outside, but a young spirit within. Growing old !s an attitude of the mind! So let me mingle as I please. I know not to attend some places, but do enjoy being able to mix with the crowd. I am neither old or young. I am just me!
