Hi all, following on from my last post regarding overcoming sexual frustration how do you approach your partner to talk about lack of sex in a relationship?

Has anyone done this? What have been your experiences with this? What happened afterwards, did it affect your relationship?

Interested to hear your thoughts everyone!

YES YES YES ME ME ME!!! I am so excited to find a group to share my thoughts and experiences with! I have recently had to mention to my partner of 3 years that I miss US..I miss us KISSING and I miss our INTIMACY...he is a one a week kind of guy but when we skip a week I get needy. I am 53 and he is 50. I have more of a drive than he does and its been discussed lightly in the past. Past couple of weeks he has been avoiding me in bed. We talked and he confessed he is worried about his estranged daughter (25) and there is a back story to that. So I felt really bad about even mentioning it to him. HOWEVER.... I see he is looking at PORN on his phone and this BAFFLES ME!!! I am kind of crushed actually. I have caught him closing out of a porn web site in the mornings before he goes in to take his shower...and he doesn't even make an effort with me who is lying right next to him in bed... I DON'T UNDERSTAND AND AM MORE FRUSTRATED KNOWING THIS...so I feel your pain!

Sex is one of the most important things for a relationship to last longer and make it enjoyable to both the partners. However, in most parts of the World talking about sex openly is avoided due to the awkwardness and taboo associated to talk about sex in certain cultures. If you are open about the topic of sex in a relationship then lots of misunderstandings in a relationship can be easily avoided. Once you discuss the sexual expectations and problems that you experience in the sexual part of the relationship it will definitely help in increasing the trust and love in your relationship.

I’ve done this once as it got to the stage where we were having sex about once a month (in 23 , he’s 26 ) and it only happened because I pushed it. My partner said that he doesn’t know why but he’s just not interested in sex but promised to try a bit harder on it and we agreed to be more intimate in general and things were good for a while but now it’s gone back to sex about once a month and it’s only ever me initiating, most of the time he just rejects my advances. I know I have a higher sex drive but I’m starting to feel like he just doesn’t want me anymore. I don’t know how to bring it up again...

I am shy talking to my husband about sex that I even suggested seeking help from a sex therapist. You don't want to hurt their feelings and you don't want to be embarrassed by their response.
