Before I start answering this topic, I want to say thank you for the messages I've been receiving and the reviews you’ve been leaving on ✨The Pleasure Principles Podcast✨. It's heart-warming to know that you are enjoying the content, and it's helping you find more connection, more pleasure in your life and your relationships. So, with that said, why are we (still) having less sex?
When speaking to a women's group last week, I was asked why this is so hard. “My husband and I have things together in pretty much every area of our lives, our careers with our kids, things are going pretty smoothly. We're great communicators. But the truth is, I don't want sex anymore. He feels rejected. And I feel like there's something wrong with me.”
First of all, I want to say that this woman is not alone. This is a global issue, a pleasure pandemic. You've probably already heard that millennials are having less sex than the previous two generations. But the fact is, we are all having less sex. A study back in 2000 reported that people were having 6.3 sexual encounters per month on average. Twelve years later that dropped to 4.8. So that's almost two less sexual encounters per month.
So, why are we having less sex?
Here are the 5 main areas couples struggle with:
Let’s face it, humans are hardwired for connection. And when we're not having the sex that we want, our relationships are not fulfilling.
