Why do couples stop having sex? Is there one simple answer that covers every population of people to explain this phenomena? Sex means something different to every man and woman you would ask. Men and women have different ages and plateaus when they desire sexual intercourse and when they want time alone. Good sex is essential for any couple to stay connected mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. What we want is the emotional fulfillment of getting close to our partner and feeling the intimacy of feeling one when we are with them. Showing affection, kissing, touching and hugging are all important elements a partnership needs to continue to grow over time.
When one partner feels obligated to make love to the other when they are not in the mood, there becomes an underlying resentment. The act of sex becomes a job and there is no mutual pleasure, and the attitude “let’s get this over with” comes into play. When the sex isn’t good or there isn’t any, it has been my experience than one or both of the partners will leave the relationship emotionally.This can lead to a disconnect, masturbation, and looking for fulfillment from other people. Sex creates the chemistry between two people who have a foundation of friendship, passion, physical expression and love. It is my job to make sure you are experiencing a enriching, fulfilling sexual life with your partner.
