Our expert says:
Men generally have a need for sex more often so negotiation of how this is accommodated is important. It is also necessary to develop your ‘erotic script’ (this means keeping the spice in your sex life) together. The “Intimacy” magazine has information and ideas based on Christian values – this may be a starting point. The regular use of pornography can negatively affect relationships. There is some evidence that suggests that use of internet porn changes the arousal circuit in the brain, effectively meaning that the user gets used to high levels of stimulation and require more to achieve similar levels of arousal. Try getting back in touch with each other and what sensations you experience when together. Anal penetration for a man is very pleasurable because it stimulates the prostate gland which is only accessible from the anus. Sometimes sex problems are linked with other relationship issues. Have a good talk about your relationship and the things / values that are really important to both of you. Resentment towards your husband can also have a negative effect on sex.
