EP.33 Surviving a sexless marriage /Why You’re Having Less Sex with Your Partner — How to Get Back Into It The Hollywood & China Doll Show

    • Society & Culture

Ep.33
First, determine whether a sexless marriage bothers you
What’s  essential for you and your partner, besides figuring out whether you  meet a specific frequency, is to define what sex means to each other.  Stop relying on internet stories or other couples’ experiences to  dictate what’s “normal.”
No one, except for the individuals in the  relationship, should decide if being in a sexless partnership is  concerning. Everyone is different. If you and your partner are content  with having sex every quarter or once a year, then that’s fine.
But  if one of you is feeling hurt from not having your sexual needs met,  then this is a sign the relationship agreement isn’t working and needs  to be modified.
Sometimes an escalation in fantasies or actions can  be a result of feeling less intimate with your partner. For example, if  you’re starting to feel resentful and fantasizing about having sex with  your co-worker, it might be because you haven’t connected physically  with your partner for a while.
Dr. Becker-Warner outlines other factors to consider:
You can’t remember the last time you and your partner enjoyed sexual intimacy.
   Sexual intimacy is the last thing you want to think about, or your  heart hurts when considering the state of sexual intimacy with your  partner.
   There’s hesitancy and/or avoidance of initiating  physical touch, either because of the potential rejection or the  possibility that it’ll lead to unwanted sex.
   Other forms of intimacy (touching, love languages, etc.) are also lacking in your relationship.
   You feel disconnected from your partner.
   You feel that sex is only when the genitals (particularly the penis and penetration) are involved.
