The TWO Most Common Mistake People Make When Solving for Lack of Sex in their Relationship

Are you frustrated because you and your partner are not having the sex life you once did? Has your sex life stalled or dramatically dropped off? Are you really frustrated because your partner won’t talk to you about the lack of sex or what they want? Have you been searching the internet for ways spice up your sex life, but your partner doesn’t want to cooperate?

That’s really frustrating and lonely, and more importantly you are not getting better sex

When it comes to couples trying to address a diminishing sex life or low-quality sex or may be even sex that has stopped for a while, they make these 2 common mistakes.

 

Mistake Number ONE

The biggest mistake individuals or couples make is to focus on the doing aspect of sex or the positions.  People will explain in detail how they have gone to huge amount of trouble to research all these different positions. They will want to try and spice up their sex life by focusing on various positions.

Or they will approach their partner with the number of times they have done it or have done. They will talk about how long it has been since they did it. They will ask why they didn’t do it.

 

Or they will focus on the doing of initiating. Who initiates sex and who rejects sex?

 

Making sex about the doing is where couples go all wrong. When we focus on just the doing part of sex, we miss the real reason why sex is so great…it’s great because of how it makes us feel. Most people want to feel desired, special, attractive and cared about.

However, it isn’t any particular type of doing that will cause these feelings. Instead, the feelings must exist in the couple and then are expressed through sex. Thinking sex CAUSES feelings is why people focus on the doing. But if you haven’t been taking care of your relationship and there are unresolved issues, these issues, even if they have nothing to do with sex, will affect sex.

Therapy helps couples focus on the right things to solve their sex issues. Often lack of sex or low quality or quantity of sex is more a symptom of something else going on in the relationship. Therapy helps couples learn better ways to communicate and get the feelings they want so they can have the sex they desire.

 

Mistake Number 2

The other major mistake people when it comes to how they deal with lack of sex or intimacy in the relationship is thinking it is something that is ONE PERSON’s FAULT. I see so many people make this make.

 

Low quality or quantity sex can never be solved by one person alone in the relationship. Sex is something that people do TOGETHER. Therefore, if one person is rejecting sex, it’s not their problem, it’s a couple problem. If one person is never in the mood, it’s not their problem to fix, it’s actually a couple’s issue. If one person wants to talk about it but the other doesn’t, that’s a relationship issue, not the non-talker’s problem.

 

What I have seen over and over again, there are usually really good reasons why a person doesn’t want to have sex. However, when they do not feel safe or fear consequences for being honest about their reasons they will not share or talk about.

Therapy helps people focus on the right issues the right way and make progress to get the relationship and sex lives they want.

Therapy provides a structured, safe and healthy relationship to help a person be able to recognize and process their feelings to make informed and healthy decisions and behaviors. If you want your life and relationships to better, don’t wait. Help is there for you.
