Couples in a successful relationship also enjoy happy sex lives. Some relationships fail because they do not enjoy a satisfying sex life. It is not always the lack of sexual urges that is to blame. There are some things that couples may be guilty of doing that can ruin their sex lives. Here are just some of them.
Making Sex Routine
For many long-term relationships, it can be quite easy to fall into the routine trap. Some couples have grown accustomed to doing the same things repeatedly that they have developed it into a routine. While it may have some benefits, routine will not translate into a happy sex life.
Couples have grown accustomed to having sex the same way over and over again that each partner already knows what to expect from it. Gone is the element of surprise and adventure. There is lesser excitement. Over time, couples get bored over sex.
Intimacy For The Sake Of Sex
There are couples who show only intimacy to each other whenever they have sex. Other than that, they do not show anything remotely intimate to a partner. There are no surprise cuddles, occasional hugs or even holding hands. A relationship can sometimes get to a point where couples get close to each other just to have sex. Any show of closeness comes with a carnal motive and nothing else. Just like routine, this can easily ruin a couple’s sex life.
Some career couples find that their time is better spent on work. Due to their busy schedules, they spend less and less time enjoying sex by going straight to the deed without any need for foreplay. Busy couples may begin to find foreplay as a waste of time. But this can have a damaging effect to a couple’s sex life over the long term. Couples will eventually consider sex as something that they need to get over with. It is no longer what they want to do. Over time, expectation over sex wanes, ruining it in the process.
