It’s a well known fact that every relationship has its ups and downs. And sometimes, those peaks and valleys are in the bedroom.
If you’re like most people, in the beginning you never had any complaints about your sex life. When it came to intimacy, you and your partner connected physically, emotionally and mentally. But somehow, things took a shift in the bedroom department. One day, when you weren’t looking, the novelty wore off.
Now, sex has gone from being a way to express your love for your partner to a boring routine. Instead of it bringing you closer together, the guilt you feel starts pushing you further apart.
But how can you revitalize your sex life if you don’t know why you lost those sparks in the first place?
As a host for YourTango, I asked fellow relationship and sex therapists why couples’ sex drives take a steady downward dive. Imago Institute’s Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt, Tony Victor LCPC, Sue Butler LMFT and Certified Sex Therapist Kimberly Anderson weigh in on why your sex drive is lagging. They also offer foolproof tips on how you can nurse your sex life back to health.
