Hiya – really sorry for what you are going through at the moment.

It must be SO HARD on you to try and keep things as ‘normal’ as possible – until you are free to go.

It really does get to the stage where you physically can’t stand to be in the same room as them, look at them, or talk to them – and there is no way you want to be touched by them.

He will know (as you know) this relationship has come to an end, but he’s still trying to gain some kind of control over you by ‘demanding’ you get intimate with him.

The way I used to handle this situation was pick a ‘mini row’ over something small, that way if he’s not talking to you and you’re not talking to him, there is less chance of having to be intimate with him. If you can keep up the ‘silent treatment’ for a few days then it may be a help.

Sorry I don’t know what else to suggest, I’m just trying to think up ways to get you out of this tight spot!!!!
