@COMMENTATOR
i’m sorry to say i disagree with your opinion. it is her body. men like you nee to respect her boundaries. it isn’t her obligation to have sex whenever you want! people can be in a married relationship and not have sex. it doesnt have to be part of the relationship. it was the man who was idiotic. please take your stupidity elsewhere.
