A recent study of sexless marraiges came up with an interesting bit of statistics. One of them is that married men choose to abstain from sexual activity with their wives/girl friends at the same rate as women make this choice.
LD also occurs at about the same rate in men as it does in women. FOXSexpert: Five Reasons Men Stop Having Sex | Fox News
A good article I think, I did not blame either sex with the problem, if that is what you thought. Just because the tread was about women, I gave my opinion about their side.
I had quickly checked for some statistics, I read books from Kinsey, Masters and Johnson and Shere Hite, but I do not own them. Luckily the site of Kinsey's has some interesting statistics too.
They are worse than mentioned in the Fox article (about 20% have problems) in the age group 50-59, 'Married Women': 82% has from no sex at all during the year to a maximum of once a week.
A couple of times a month is not enough in my view to be called a healthy sex life.
I agree with you that there is also a problem with men. But I think when men have a low sex drive there are medical issues at hand.
I think people should have quality sex 2-3 times a week, and give that a priority in their relation. Before kids...
You can argue about the 'should', ofcourse. It is just my opinion on what is needed to have a great emotional and physical bond with your partner, have fun, have joy, be intimate, have great sex.
Seen my first reaction you know I am fully aware of the sobering reality of most people in that aspect. It is often said by them, sex is not very important any more. Never I hear about good or great sex.
My impression is they look at sex like a sweaty, short, cumbersome experience, with the quality of having it under blue neonlight in concrete room.
It can be very different...
