Husband and kissing

Daphne • hairstylist for 10 years and now just a happy prego after trying for 6 years!
I love my husband we truly are perfect for each other........he is such a sloppy kisser really slobbery actually grosses me out so we don't kiss open mouth at all.....he made a comment in a open conversation joking about how we don't kiss anymore and glanced at me......I love kissing but how can I solve this without killing his ego
