Sex may still be a taboo topic in India and still discussed in whispers in remote corners, but no one can deny its importance. We can do our best to downplay the need for sex as a society, but physical intimacy in a romantic relationship or marriage is essential to the relationship’s survival. Just as emotional unavailability or distancing can destroy your marriage, lack of sex can also wreak havoc. Its effects are more deeply rooted and can then seep into other cracks in the marriage to build a bigger problem. And yet there are couples who stop having sex after a while, sometimes only a year or so into marriage. There can be several reasons, most of which can be addressed in order to have a better sex life. But since the first step is always identifying the problem, let’s reveal the reasons first so you can work on it
It goes without saying that for sexual activity with your partner you must of course be quite energetic and lively. If you have work-related stress and a hectic schedule that takes up much of your personal life, you’ll be too exhausted to do anything once you get home, let alone have sex. The stress increases by leaps and bounds when you have children at home and the responsibilities are not shared.
Dissatisfaction with own body
This may be the age of body positivity, but no one is able to reshape their thoughts that way. Insecurity about your own body shape and size can drastically reduce your sex drive out of self-imposed shame and fear. It is also possible for one partner to get a complex if the other is fit and he or she is not.
A regular routine during intercourse will undoubtedly lead to boredom after a while, to the extent that you don’t get aroused from it anymore. It is necessary to try different ways, change posture and add a more elongated and enjoyable foreplay. Boring sex eventually leads to no sex.
Conflict in ideologies
Mental or emotional compatibility often plays a big part in physical compatibility too, and if you and your partner have too much conflict, it will eventually seep into your sex life. A feeling of resentment begins to dawn on you and getting physically intimate with your partner becomes difficult.
Poor hygiene is a major turn-off during sex. If your partner hasn’t taken a bath for days, hasn’t brushed their teeth, or has other unsanitary habits, you’ll end up disgusted and not wanting to have sex.
