Excuses, excuses: Husband charts wife’s reasons for refusing sex, sends it to her

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.


A woman posted a spreadsheet to Reddit that was sent by her husband, documenting the reasons she gave for not having sex with him.

“My husband [M26] sent me [F26] an immature, inflammatory email as I was driving to the airport for a 10-day work trip,” she posted on the site. “Now he has cut contact.”

The excuses listed included, “You’re too drunk,” I”m watching the show (Friends re-run),” and “I’m sweaty and gross..”

After receiving the email, his wife tried contacting him but couldn’t, so she wrote on Reddit: “Husband sends a message to my work email … he’s never done this, we always communicate in person or by text.

“I open it up and it’s a sarcastic diatribe basically saying he won’t miss me for the 10 days I’m gone.

“Attached is a spreadsheet of all the times he has tried to initiate sex, with a column for my ‘excuses,’ using verbatim quotes of why I didn’t feel like having sex at that very moment.”

After more than 500 comments were made, the post was locked.

According to the spreadsheet, the man tried to initiate sex every day from June 3 to July 16 — and succeeded three times.

The spreadsheet has since been deleted, but it has been saved thanks to the magical world of the Internet.

Those who commented on the Reddit post seemed to be evenly divided on whose side they were on.

    My word, this looks like the behavior of teenagers, not married twenty-somethings. Any wife who understands her husbands needs won’t turn him down this much. Any husband who understands his wife, will do more to put her in the mood. They have reduced their marriage to petty, childish nonsense. They are well suited for each other, since they both play the same type of games.

    Ahhh… It would appear that this is simply another relationship based completely on “recreational sex”…. with little or no “Love”, commitment, devotion, adoration, affection, or feeling in it. Too harsh?…. When you base a relationship completely on sexual gratification ( I wonder where that idea cam from?… )… when “Its” gone… so is the relationship.
    Very Sad.

    He’s just not asking right. Women need a reason, men just need a place. Foreplay starts between her ears.

    When u are truly attracted to someone… it doesnt matter, u have no excuse. No matter the age. I can see the exhausted part, maybe every once in a while. But doesnt she know that pheremones are a huuge thing, after she works out he cant help but be physically attracted to him, its science.

    I have had this same conversation with my male friends and It seems to me most women tend to follow this same pattern. They will do anything any time anywhere when you are dating then they get married and it slowly turns into these type of excuses. Can someone please explain this type of female behavior and why it has become so prevalent in todays society.

    He should just whip his skippy and consider himself lucky that he doesn’t have to satisfy this broad on a regular basis. If he does himself he doesn’t have to cuddle his skippy, respect it, or cook breakfast for it in the morning.

    This guy should convert to Islam and move to a Muslim country where the woman would not dare refuse to submit to their husband’s carnal desires, even when he provides no pleasure to them. Then again, maybe if he paid more attention to his wife’s needs she would be more willing to engage in a mutually satisfying sexual relationship.
