1 in 5 Unhappily Married Women say They aren’t Getting this ONE Thing AT ALL. As in NEVER!

March 26, 2014 — 11 Comments

67a3198168According to the dating website Ashley Madison a recent survey says that U.S. women top the list when it comes to sexless marriages.  I realize I have written about this before, but it appears that this problem is not getting better…in fact it is getting worse!  Let this stat sink in for a moment, “Twenty-two percent of the American women surveyed admitted to having NO sex with their husbands at all.”  Yes, studies show that 1 in 5 unhappily married women in the U.S. are in a sexless marriage! And to add insult to injury…do you know what the purpose of AshleyMadison.com?  It is a website for married folks who want to cheat on their spouse.

I hope I’m not boring you with my marital posts this week, but this is seriously breaking my heart. And please know that I’m not judging anyone, because I’m not a perfect husband.  In fact, at 47 years-old I am not as good as I once was, but I’m as good once as I ever was (Yes I stole that from Toby Keith).  Women hit their sexual peaks at about the time a man’s testosterone level is dropping, which I consider to be proof that the evolutionary process is far from complete or God has a warped sense of humor.  However, there are no excuses for a “sexless” marriage unless there is a medical problem that can’t be fixed, or both partners agree they just don’t want to do the Humpty dance.

If your sex life is lacking the LUSTer you crave then please consider listening to my podcast & Interview with A SexPert that I posted last month.  You will get some great tips and learn of a book that can put the X back in sex!

    Consider the source. Ashley Madison encourages affairs.

    I love your morning show and have for years. I am deeply saddened that a married man would use a website who’s moto is “life is short, have an affair” as a source of information therefore promoting this website. I think the basic idea of this article is true and right. The source you opened with just sucks.

      I hate that site! This was from an article in The Huffington Post, which used them as a source. I was hoping readers would feel my disdain for Ashley Madison in my statement, “And to add insult to injury…do you know what the purpose of AshleyMadison.com?  It is a website for married folks who want to cheat on their spouse.” I think you are misunderstanding me, but I do appreciate your thoughts and visit to my blog. My point is that many married folks aren’t connecting on an intimate level, and to make it worse there are websites that encourage them to go elsewhere to find it. When I quote a source it is simply that…it doesn’t mean I agree or approve of them.

    Statistics show that 25% of American women between 40 and 50 years old are on Antidepressants (New York Times). So with that in mind, do you think that there is a possible connection between Antidepressants and a lack of sex drive? Would be interesting to take the stats of your sexless marriages and see exactly how many are on medication. Just a thought!!
