Keeping the candy shop open...
My husband figured out that I am the only wife among himself and his male coworkers who doesn't withhold sex (aka "the candy shop," as his coworkers call it) when pissed off. (Who am I kidding? I couldn't hold out that long anyhow. Toys can only do so much.)
Coworker #1's wife didn't hand any over for a month...until he stopped talking about wanting to buy a motorcycle. He figured this out on his own, mind you, she didn't connect the dots for him.
Coworker #2's wife didn't like a video that he brought home...they usually watch them together, and even go to strip clubs (Mr. Riot Kitty suspects they are both bi, incidentally), but apparently trans-on-trans porn wasn't up her alley. She also didn't say anything, but as Coworker #2 told my husband, "I went to the candy shop and it had turned into a dry cleaners."
Coworker #3 is simply a jackass...my husband suspects he was simply being himself too often.
But perhaps now we know a fix for all of this...
It's funny, because a friend of mine in college used to complain that his wife wouldn't give him any unless he was doing enough chores. She wasn't verbal about it, either...he just figured it out.
And did more chores.
Dear God, I hope my family doesn't read this!
