According 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!
