How can you say 'No' to sex with your husband without hurting his feelings?

Saying 'no' to your husband is a tricky and sensitive subject. Here are some helpful tips to do it without hurting his feelings!

Here are some ways to tell your husband 'no' without hurting his feelings!

1. Set his expectations

If you're not in the mood to have sex on a certain day, then instead of waiting for your husband to ask you about it, you could tell him in advance in order to set his expectations. That way, he knows that you're not in the mood, so he won't feel bad if you say no.

2. Be honest

Don't make excuses if you're not interested in sex. If you're tired or busy, then it's best to tell your husband upfront that you can't have sex with him on that day. Being honest is better than making up excuses or even lying to your husband.

3. Tell him to ask again later

Sometimes you're not in the best mood when your husband asks you for sex, but later on you might be ready to have sex.

So instead of an outright no, you can tell your husband to ask you later, when you're in the mood.

4. Sometimes, abstaining from sex can bring you closer

While sex is good for your relationship, periods of abstinence can also help! You can be intimate with your husband without sex; you can cuddle, lie in bed together, and talk about life.

It's also good to take a break from sex once in a while so that it'll be more exciting when you do it!

5. Plan it in advance

Sometimes, it's easier to plan things in advance instead of doing it spontaneously. That way, you can be sure that you're ready and in the mood to have sex, since you planned for it and it wasn't something spontaneous.
