Maureen McGrath clinical therapist and Sexpert.
I discovered Maureen McGrath from her TEDx talk:
No Sex Marriage – Masturbation, Loneliness, Cheating and Shame
I was fascinated with her concise information regarding sex and marriage. The taboo sex subject many couples experience but few do anything to correct. For any number of reasons from shame, not wanting to rock the boat, finances or children many couples tolerate a Sexless or very low sex relationship.
Women cheat, Men Cheat
The sexes (men vs women) tend to cheat for very different reasons when experiencing a sexless marriage, according to Maureen. The common reason for cheating males is to stay in a relationship, while it’s the opposite for women.
There are other reasons for sexless marriages. Much of the brakes being put forth by a woman may range from physical dysfunction to psychological programming of society, famil, and philosophy.
Mens sexual dysfunction tends to fall into the arena of health problems. Prostate, obesity, or other physical conditions contribute to sexless marriage activity for men. Additionally a mans Self worth may also play heavily in the curtailment of sexual desire for their spouse or partner.
Despite what we all think, many sexless and low sex marriages are developed from the lack of self knowledge and misinformation. Couple don’t understand their partners needs as time passes and bodies and mindsets develop.by
