Consumer Reports did a sex survey of 1000 adults and over 80% of the respondents said that they sometimes avoided having sex with their partners. Yes, we all have legitimate reasons from time to time for avoiding this physical intimacy, yet when we get into the HABIT of avoiding sex on a regular basis, it is indicative of BIG PROBLEMS!
The top six reasons given for not having sex are:
1. TOO TIRED OR NEED SLEEP
2. NOT FEELING WELL OR HEALTH PROBLEMS
3. NOT IN THE MOOD
4. TAKING CARE OF CHILDREN OR PETS
6. WATCHING TV OR A MOVIE
As a couples counselor and sex therapist, I have heard every excuse in the book for not having sex and the above survey is consistent with my experience. And from my perspective, these are just EXCUSES!
Decreased expression of affection, less physical intimacy and reduced frequency of sex are all symptoms of loss of connection in a relationship. And in my experience, unless something is done to remedy this, it is often the beginning of the end.
The good news, is that this loss of connection and loss of passion can be stopped and reversed! If you’re not having sex, it doesn’t have to remain that way! I’ve been working with couples for almost twenty years on this issue of passion and that’s why I created the Passion Doctor Website. I know that not all couples have the resources and finances to see a couples counselor on an ongoing basis. There IS another solution!
Of course, the solution is a bit more complex than I can explain in a short blog article. That’s why I’ve created my “Bring Back The Passion!” Program to help those who want professional help in having a more loving AND a more passionate relationship. Please contact me if you’d like to know more.
Thank you so much,
Dr. Adam Sheck
