‘Sex can wane because of anger or resentment’
woman’s agony aunt, suzie hayman, says: ‘The amount of sex you have is not, in itself, an indication of a successful or failing marriage. what’s important is whether you're in agreement about the number of times you get down to it, and whether it leaves you satisfied and fulfilled. sex every day can be loveless and frustrating. sex once a month can be dynamite and leave you content and connected.
If in the early days you had lots, the thing to consider is why it dropped off. sex can wane because of anger or resentments that aren’t being talked over. men may withdraw from sex if they are experiencing work stress or performance anxieties. but lack of desire can also be a symptom of physical illness, or a sign that affections may have turned to someone else.’
