I’m jealous of my partner pleasuring himself when he is away for work

DEAR DEIDRE: THE thought of my partner masturbating while we’re apart makes me so jealous.

My partner and I used to have sex at least four times a day, but now he’s posted away for work, I’m struggling without him.

I’m 34 and he is 37. We often get fruity when he’s allowed to make a call, but now the thought of him pleasuring himself when I’m not there makes me feel uncontrollably jealous.

He’s not calling as much any more because my jealousy is getting in the way.

How can I stop this so that we can enjoy more phone sex?
