    I also agree re the chicken or the egg. I haven't done much reading on libido, but the posts I've read on this forum lead me to believe that a lot of mothers are actually too tired to DTD because their partner/husband won't do his share around the house and with the children. If I was run off my feet and had a DP who thought he could go to work and come home and sit on his bum while I do everything s3x would be the absolute last thing on my mind.

    Yes agree all these differing scenarios are all very true..

    Guess at the end of the day we are all commenting on situations we don't have enough insight into.

If you don't have enough of it to get you through a dry spell, then you won't have enough of it to get you through anything else that life throws at a couple - lack of sex would be the least of your problems.

    Yep u believe the lack of sex us a reflection of lack of closeness.. Which one comes first I wouldn't know..

    But.. Then there are those that have said they happily don't have sex at all.. Every scenario is different!

    Hope I am not repeating, but I believe most search suggests that the average woman has a lower sex drive than the average man. But obviously this isn't true for everyone, nor does it explain the varying reasons for this. However there is certainly a large biological aspect to it, so even taking away kids, tiredness, ill health, depression etc etc etc, the average levels Of desire still ring true. On average. Have I said average enough lol?
    I think tis a miracle any of us ever feel satisfied really, given that generally women need emotional intimacy to have sex and men need sex to feel emotionally intimate. If you can get around these opposing needs well done!

    I watched an awesome show on foxtel about why we have s3x (and orga$m$) was very interesting they explored long term relationships and how s3x and orga$m$ changed over time.


    Took the Red pill.
