We like to think that we know what kind of problems we'll have when we grow up. We think we're aware of everything that can present an issue in a relationship. After all, we've seen so many romances play out on television and in our lives. We know what can happen. Let's talk about sex. We're told that, in straight relationships, the woman is the one who usually wants sex less.
My Partner Doesn't Want To Have Sex Anymore
Low Sex Drive in Men - Why Doesn't He Want Sex
I've been with my boyfriend for almost 7 months now. We love each other and get on amazingly well. In the day he can be all over me, hugging and kissing me, holding my hand, saying how pretty I look and how attractive he thinks I am. This is all very well but I wish he'd show it in the bedroom! When we do have sex usually initiated by myself he finds it difficult to have an erection for more than ten minutes. I feel this is the root of the problem and is why he doesn't initiate sex with me. We've spoken about this many times trying to get to the root of the problem but with no luck!
What Happens When Your Boyfriend Wants Sex Less Than You Do
You're lying in bed bumping up against that body next to you, seething with hurt and anger. You haven't been touched or reached for in more months than you care to count. You've gone through the typical exercises of seduction, friendship and caring, only to have been rejected and thwarted again and again. Your mind has assessed all of the possibilities: is there someone else, another woman, a lack of desire or is it loss of love? Bruised and hurt, you withdraw and the situation now becomes distant and lonely.
What causes a man to lose interest in sex with his wife? It happens, and this is normal. The key here is finding out why, because not all couples have the same reasons. Prioritize it, even if it may feel embarrassing. The main roadblock could have more to do with your husband, matters of self-care, and his views on sex and intimacy.
