Our expert says:
People’s preferences differ so it is difficult to generalize. What is however quite common is that women tend to need time to switch off from all the external demands for them to be really in the mood. It might be that after a hectic day with work; food and children that she is hardly in the mood or has the energy to give herself over to sex. Your need for a bit longer foreplay and “play” in general should however also be given attention. One could do that by specifically arranging time away for the two of you where you and your relationship are given the isolated attention you deserve. Finding a balance between what works for both of you and integrating should be the focus; rather than trying to change the other one’s preferences or making of it more than what it is.
