Loss of sexual interest is one of the most common reasons why people seek out sex therapy and despite what we have been led to believe, loss of sexual motivation can affect men just as much as women. A mismatch in a couple’s desire for sex can have a devastating effect on the relationship.
We cannot underestimate the importance of sex within our relationships.
As humans, we all need a loving connection, and one way we experience this is through sex. However, if we feel mistrust, resentment, or other corrosive emotions within our relationship, it can strip away any connection we may have once had or thought we had.
Loss of motivation for sex can happen for a multitude of reasons, from difficulties within the relationship as we have just mentioned, stress, depression and other such emotional problems, to letting other things in life take priority. Or, it could be other unresolved issues from the past that are having an impact on our present-day lives.
If you have tried ways of improving your sex life that has not accomplished what you had hoped, talking therapy is an excellent way of exploring your relationship and sexual life, helping you to discover what you really want.
