And is that enough? Not wanting enough sex is the big problem for most women who consult me as a clinical sexologist. And most sex therapists will agree that having a low level of sexual desire is a problem. But the majority of these women are heterosexual with male partners who are — you guessed it — complaining. Long distance romance remains exciting because it provides space and distance interspersed with sexy weekend liaisons.
What seems to ignite desire for women is the excitement and novelty of a budding new romance. Because we tend to be caregivers, women take care of our menfolk in committed relationships, much as we take care of children and pets. So these guys start to feel like a brother or worse yetand sex with family members is a definite no-no in our culture.
Children and pets need caregiving, which we provide as an act of love.
Sexual desire requires that our lover does not need us. For some, formalizing their relationship as marriage made sex so available and so sanctioned that it lost the forbidden and erotic quality that had formerly ignited passion. Many of the participants in all three groups specifically noted that while they were committed to their marriage, they thought desire would return if someone new came along who desired them.
But once a commitment has been made, your guy is stuck and the meaning of commitment changes. In women, desire may be driven to the same extent as it is in men by novelty and excitement and a stranger thinking they are hot. Over and above anyone else, we are our own point of reference for how sexy we are.

Now I just live there and do what I want and say once the kids are grown get a divorce and just use brothels they are cheaper. You bring up so many great points! The following statement you made was spot on.
I am totally experiencing this myself at the moment and reading articles relating to this, aside from therapy, have been very therapeutic. Receiving a rub once or twice a week would probably continue to feel good and be desired indefinitely. I think that the issue here is that women are conditioned either by society or by biology to be sexually turned off by their committed partner.
As u say when they have hooked their man, what that means is once the pursuit has gone. However according to Michelle Langely women in fact cease having sexual desire with their partner because after a while the honeymoon phase ends and the feelings go. So they then view sex as a chore. Gary, I think you are totally right. We complain about man beeing too sexually active, but they are comminted somehow, they still desire their woman most of the time.
Same touches, same things, when physical passion dissapears,can get dangerous because you see cristal clear that he is fantasizing about porn screaming and you are about a new romance. He is probably wondering why you dont act like that and you why he isnt as exciting as your fantasies. A friend told me once she was fatesizing about another good looking man even if he doesnt exist, never stoping, but beeing in an almost ended relationship.
We might understand that we got ourselves in a big whol, but at least we can dream, read romances etc : and they can hear everytime we are not home. The only thing I should add is my partner has now gone through the menopause, so perhaps adjustments need to be made for this. I try to be everything a man should be, kind, considerate, supportive, romantic etc. Perhaps we are closer to our distant Bonobo monkey cousins than most of us know and would benefit from looking how there society interacts rather than living a false existence in a society created by individuals with selfish motives.
The only thing in my opinion that separates us from our distant cousins is jealousy. I have the same exact situation Mr, Steve. Unfortunatly for me, i am 28 years old, and my wife is It hurts me inside ALOT but, as a man and a human being, my sexual needs are so high, that I manage to get myself in the mood and make the best out of the situation….
I love her, but i cannot live a life without sex. This past year has got me climbing walls, and the stress that this whole situation creates is awfull, and makes alot of problems in the work, in the relationship, and in my social life. Please, someone, give me some advice…. You are far too young to be feeling this way. The final option sadly is to call it a day and leave.
But what you need to remember is that men and women are very different and throughout periods of their lives there hormonal balance changes, it flows and ebbs like the oceans. Good luck with whatever route you take. She lied to you. We are tied between our human physical needs and our emotions, men and women are so often opposites.
Not all men are the same. Your reply has made me consider how I approach my partner.
What do you think? Which seems like she complains about everything. My daughter w Has one more year of school and we are both out of here. We are both in counciling and that helps a lot dealing with it. Why sister or stranger, and not a friend you ask? Sure, I could call it, but I really love her. Yes, love is not everything, but I feel like she loves me too.
Hello Mike, I really feel for you and the situation you have found yourself in. You say you have spoken with your partner, how does she see your advances for intimacy? Does she feel pressurised? Or does she say she understands and will try harder?
In all honesty the latter have been too intense to bare. Our mind plays tricks on us, we begin to think that our partners are just not interested in us and that if someone new came into their lives their interest in the physical would be much greater, to an extent this can be true. I asked my partner would this be the case. Again rather than dragging yourself through all this you need to ask yourself what is it you really need?
Are these needs realistic? What can you do to change the situation? And is this relationship right for you? Yes, she always says she understands and says she is sorry. She looks afected by how I feel, and says she will try harder. I want sex with HER. An affair is never the answer, despite how badly your situation is. Sadly, as time goes by, those thoughts go trough my mind, I am made of flesh and bones after all, but I do not want to do it because I cherish her so much.
I feel like I am a dad, complaining about how is son is a failure in life. I love you, I love being with you, and I love every moment we spend together and all those litle things we have BUT I need some intimacy.
Hello Mike, firstly happy belated birthday. Some guys seem to have the perfect relationship, lots of intimacy and closeness. I often wonder what they do differently. The top and bottom of all of this is that as you say you are too young to be feeling this way and why should you have to adapt your needs.
Only you can decide your next move.
I used to believe in soul mates but I think people come in and out of our lives for many reasons. Regards Steve. Hello Mr. Steve, Here we are, almoust 2 years later, and everything changed! Somehow I still manage to keep my spirit up, but it is extremely dificult to do so, when your house is on fire.
She complained about everything I did and tried, despite being an extremely normal intercouse nothing weird. We had a huge conversation. How do we know enough is enough? May I ask for your opinion please? It seems that before marriage you are regarded as Superman, but the moment the ring is on her finger it seems to act like Kryptonite.
Both you and in a way, your wife will both end up disappointed. Happy, sexually fulfilled men are much more capable of giving joy and compassion to the people around them than a man who is stuck in a sex-deprived marriage. Another laughably wrong article with false and highly outdated information.
Feminism is insecurity. So sad. On top of it I had this competing-with-men thing going on where I felt like I wanted to prove that I could do everything the same, or better, than any guy. So I got into fishing, playing with knives, and keeping a little black book. None of this was done because it made me truly happy. Again, I do not know exactly where all of this feeling that I had to be that way came from.
So fast forward many years, I get married, we do commitment, kids, financial problems, adjustment issues, etc. And I hit a brick wall. My mind starts refusing to want my husband in that way. I feel like for women who felt like they did not have agency over their bodies to whatever extent, for whatever reason, this is a necessary stage in their marriage.
Now in my case, I have not talked about this with my husband.Wives wants sex Satus
