Sunday Star-Times - Sunday Magazine - - SEX ADVICE, ROBYN SALISBURY -

Is the seven-year itch a real thing? This year I am find­ing my­self in­creas­ingly bored with the sex we are hav­ing. It’s got to the point that I al­most can’t be both­ered and just go along with it to a) not rock the boat and b) get some phys­i­cal relief. Our sex life was great at first, then we set­tled into what was ini­tially a plea­sur­able rou­tine… But now some­one or some­thing has hi­jacked the plea­sure! My part­ner has put on a bit of weight, but then so have I, so I can’t blame that. We do try to ring the changes some­times in po­si­tion, lo­ca­tion and time of day, as I’ve seen you rec­om­mend­ing those things to oth­ers, but ul­ti­mately the light has gone out. My values don’t al­low an affair, so is it time to leave?

Robyn Sal­is­bury is a clin­i­cal psy­chol­o­gist.
