So the sex life was getting kind of samey after 12 years, so I figured I'd check around for some ideas to spice things up. A number of sources (including you lovely ladies here) suggested putting on some sexy lingerie and heels and doing a little striptease for the man. Well okay then! So I bought a wisp of chiffon and some stilettos, found some nice "strippin' tunes", changed the sheets, lit some candles, sent the kids to Grandma's for the night and sent DH a text telling him to expect a nice surprise. And I met him in the bedroom all dolled up in my new items, cranked up the tunes and did my very best approximation of what I observed while doing YouTube research on stripping. After five or ten minutes, I happened to glance at his face. He was turning purple trying not to laugh at me! I stopped "dancing" and just stared at him in shock. "I'm sorry baby! You just look ridiculous! That outfit..." and he dissolved into helpless laughter again. "..I'm sorry, I'm really sorry, I can't help it, you just look so hilarious!"
So then I did something I couldn't help doing...I burst into tears, ran into the bathroom and cried for like two hours. I ripped up the lingerie and threw it in the trash along with the shoes.
I am absolutely mortified. I don't even want to face him! And it'll be a cold day in hell before I ever try anything like that again!
How do I even begin to discuss this with him? I know he didn't mean to crush my feelings, but at this point I have zero self-confidence and no ideas on how to change that!

Wow, there is something wrong with that man. I'd tell him that you're bored sexually and he needs to fix it since he won't get help from you anymore. That was just mean spirited of him.
