    Found some humor in this. Most men I know may have considered doing something like this, but now all they need to do is forward this story to their wives to get the point across.

    That said, I doubt this will end well for him. Pretty sure she could develop her own spreadsheet for him on a number of topics. Probably should do what we men dread, which is to talk about it. This is a pretty drastic measure, so there is a chance he's talked about it quite a bit already and she wasn't getting it (and neither was he - badoom ching!).

    As a light-hearted type of thing, it's hilarious actually. However, it comes off as if the dude is seriously mad at his wife for lack of sex. That's where it gets weird.

    Honestly, if you are keeping a spreadsheet on this sort of thing, and then giving it to your SO in hopes of getting more, you are proving that you have no idea why you're not getting any.

    There's more problems than just a lack of sex in that marriage. And honestly, who does that? I think both of them are immature.

    If he likes making spreadsheets so much, now he can start making one for the nights he spends alone.

    My dark comptroller soul does love to document performance, but even I couldn't take it that far. That's pretty funny.

    From the spreadsheet data, his nights alone won't make much of a difference.

    My thoughts are that he probably isn't doing enough and she obviously isn't doing enough. She obviously doesn't have any idea why she isn't having her needs met just the same.

    At least he is willing to address it, even if it isn't the best way. Then again, a spreadsheet is a good way to show that the numbers don't lie. She didn't help the matter by taking their issue to the internet.

    She posted it in a relationship thread asking for help. He sent it to her the day she left on a 10 day business trip and won't answer her calls. I'm sure there are problems from her side as well, but what an ***.

    She obviously doesn't understand love, honor, and OBEY.

    I guess he'll find out it can get worse than once every 16 days.

    There's a really good reason why those specific words aren't used in many modern marriage vows. I prefer "respect"...from both sides.

    Not seeing much of that from either of these two people. He charts their love life (useful when you're trying to conceive, but not when you're trying to keep score) and emails it to her. She posts it on a public website. Not a lot of intimacy going on there - and it's intimacy that leads to lovemaking, not "WOMAN, I said NOW"...

    (wish I WAS JK)

    Some married women treat sex like a reward for good behavior. Thats the wrong way.

    Dude totally needs to work on his oral abilities. Clearly that's the problem in this relationship.

    You'd be a lot less frustrated if you'd just behave.
