How's your sex drive? The answer to this question varies from woman to woman. Some women are crazy about sex and want it as often as possible while others could take it or leave it. The great thing is that however your sex drive is at this moment- it's going to change. You don't have to worry about being stuck in a rut or being sexless forever.
There are many things which affect our sex drive- medications, hormones, age, childbirth, stress, weight gain etc. Basically you can make a long, long list of things that have an impact on your sex life.
We all go through phases and periods of variation. Sadly, the men in our lives aren't always on the same page as we are. I've heard men complain that their partners never want sex. There's the old headache excuse, they're too tired, they just want to cuddle... On the other hand there are men who feel as if the women in their lives expect them to be ready to go at a moments notice and will feel unwanted and undesirable if he's not in the mood. This puts pressure on him and can make him less driven for intimacy.
There are no hard and fast rules for dealing with differing sex drives other than to communicate how you feel to your partner, listen to what he has to say in return and realize that it's not permanent. The tables my flip completely in a few months.
Going without sex for a period of time doesn't mean you don't love each other or that one of you is not attractive anymore. Communicate, share your thoughts and work together to overcome sexual hurdles to enjoy a full and active sex life.
