Level of desire

People often differ in their appetite for sex. One of the most common sexual complaints among couples is a disparity in level of desire. (Think: “When I’m hot (s)he’s not!”)
Since this is a common concern, it is helpful to take the time to examine the root cause of the difference in level of desire since there are many possible contributing factors. After clarifying the likely factors fueling the problem, consider several possible solutions.

Vulnerability

Vulnerability. The mere mention of the word can make grown men squirm and grown women hide! It’s something we don’t often talk about, yet it is universal to all human beings.

In the context of human relationships, vulnerability is the glue that connects us, yet terrifies most of us at the same time. When the “V” word is mentioned, oftentimes people immediately think of situations in which they have been hurt or disappointed by others. They may even remind themselves, “That’s why I don’t get too close.” Vulnerability is commonly associated with pain; however, by choosing that viewpoint we miss out on the richer meaning and opportunity.

Too busy for sex

Your daughter forgot to tell you about the school project that’s due tomorrow. Your son’s soccer game starts in 45 minutes and the washer just broke. Your toddler got a raisin stuck up his nose, and there’s a huge deadline at work. Are you too busy for sex? Does the mere thought of getting naked and being sexy exhaust you? Join the club! So many of us are stuck in the frenzied pace of work, kids, family responsibilities and daily minutia that our sex lives are all but forgotten! Sometimes, sex can get monotonous or routine between people who are in a long-term committed relationship. What can you do if you are truly too busy for sex? Keep reading for seven practical suggestions to jump start your sex life.

Redefining Sexual Values

Redefining your sexual values is one aspect of the overall process of redefining yourself, separate from your former spouse. It’s natural to mold yourself around the needs of others, particularly in a long-term relationship or marriage. Much of this is automatic; so much so that you may not have recognized the parts of your “self” you stifled in an effort to maintain the “status quo.” It can seem overwhelming at first, since it entails so much change all at once. But a more empowering way to view it could be as an adventure – of discovering new shades of yourself.

How do you know if you are bad at sex?

Just because you and your past partner had amazing sex, does not mean that all future lovers will consider you amazing in the bedroom. Each partner is different. Different build, different tastes, different needs, different likes and dislikes. Just like dating and relationships, the chemistry created between two people changes from person to person, and how the dynamic of how a couple grows from mistakes as well as successful experiences can be wildly different. With this being said, there are some people who will be considered “good” in bed to a wider range of partner’s and others will be viewed as more limited. In relationships, just remember, it only takes one.

Sex and Pregnancy: A Husband’s Reflection

The pregnant partner isn’t the only one experiencing change during sex. For the husband, how he views his wife, and what attracts him to his wife can change, and ideally for the positive. In the above letter, this specific husband now sees his wife as sexier with her new curves, and with more confidence. He has also developed new meaning of what his wife’s body represents to him: he sees her body as symbolism of their shared creation, and because of that he feels more connected to her and wants to be closer to his wife.

It is crucial to take inventory of your life and really assess where having a child fits into your life right now.
