I’m married and very much in love with my husband. We have been trying for a baby for six months now. Our sex life is great but there’s just one thing that isn’t quite right for me.
I have always enjoyed kissing but I have never really enjoyed kissing my husband and it’s quite a big deal for me. He sometimes has bad breath. His oral hygiene didn’t used to be great and I told him and together we improved it – he now sees a dentist regularly, brushes his teeth twice a day, keeps his toothbrush clean etc. His bad breath has improved but he likes microwave curries which always give him terrible breath 🙁
He also has an overactive saliva gland and is a bit ‘salivery/drooly’ when kissing. I also told him about this and he swallowed more and this improved.
The other thing that bothers me is that when we are kissing, he starts making gross ‘mmm’ ‘hmm’ noises that creep me out a bit. I thin if I mentioned this to him it would upset him.
The only ever kiss I enjoyed was our very first kiss – that was great! But after a few months in our relationship, he told me he was so nervous at the time, he just followed my lead and that wasn’t his kissing style.
We are very honest with each other and we always talk things out. But I feel like I’ve spoken to him about this a lot over the years and if I say any more it will make him upset and have a bad effect. What can I do? This is quite important for me.
