We have collected your questions regarding sexual issues faced by married couples, and are delighted to have French Relationship and Sex Therapist France Licastro answer them below.
Qn: What are some common problems married couples have with sex?
Sexual communication is the common problem as women usually do not say what they like. Maybe bound by belief or shyness, and the men are not mind readers and cannot guess.
For the men: the will to have more sex but often getting rejected by their partner.
Qn: Are there signs a married couple can look out for that their sex lives are plateauing?
The plateau is reached when women start to be bored with sex in general, and the men’s sexual needs are higher and the women‘s desire digress. The signs are when one wants sex and the other is not interested in either men or women.
Qn: We’ve heard about married couples who have lost the spark in their sex lives after years of marriage and having children. How can they bring that spark back?
Bring back the romance which starts during the day with genuine compliments via a small SMS, a sign of affection: holding somebody’s hand, giving kisses when coming back from work.
Show gratefulness for any service done for each other such as taking the rubbish out or getting the washing done etc.
Dress for each other.
Qn: How can a couple resume physical intimacies after an affair?
Intimacy is based on trust, and trust takes time to recover.
Qn: Why are new moms so horny after birth?
I have never heard of moms being horny after birth and if anything, it is the contrary. They are tired and busy with the baby that so often, the men are left for themselves when it come to sex.
