Partner not satisfied with my body

Hi, my partner is not satisfied with my body. He has told me he needs pornography because he likes "those" kind of bodies as if my body was not one of them. I am a sex positive person, so intellectualize porn as normal, but I feel awful that he doesn't get excited about me this way. Does having children ruin your sex life forever? I used to have multiple partners without getting committed to one. Now I am in a monogamous relationship with the one I love and he doesn't love my body and has said in his journal that he will never be satisfied with me. ( I know I should not have read his journal). I think I am pretty. I am trapped unless I leave the only person I have ever really loved. Maybe lust is different than love and you can only have one or the other. Maybe lust is for people who don't have babies or breastfeed. I am sure this is a common issue. My breast sag from breastfeeding and my belly...He doesn't look at my body or get turned on by me. I would be happy to enjoy the porn with him if I felt sexy and attractive and if it was supplemental, but how can I compete with hundreds of anarexic young women with bouncy breasts?
