  • I say it over and over again until he does it. Or I do it myself.

  • I usually just tell him, but if he needs a little coercing I do the chin whobble and let tears well up in my eyes. It usually works right away.

  • I play the ditz. I ask him, if he forgets, I say, oh sweetie I forgot to ask you if you would do (fill in the blank). It usually works.
    I'm not a nagger so I try to come up with creative ways to get his help. I'm his wife and partner, not his mother, lol!

  • i usually just ask again and then later if he doesn't do it and then ask for sex i say oh i forgot you asked for it or wanted it. he'll be what and then you say you asked him for something and still not done. it;s the same thing really. i will sometimes give him a quickie and then say it's about time he gets something i asked done. honest though asking a second works in my house.
