“You can’t force sexual chemistry to exist where it doesn’t in the same way you can’t deny it when it does.”
If someone asked you if less sex meant less spark, and you thought, “Less sex? What on earth are you talking about?” then you’re probably one of two people. You’re either a) a lucky bastard in a brand spanking new, shiny relationship, or b) a sex robot sent from the future to woo mankind with your mechanical wiles. If you’re person A, then read this anyway – because it will happen eventually. And if you are person B, welcome! You probably don’t even need to read this, as you’re no doubt programmed for constant sexy times. But everyone else… read on. You might just learn a little something.

Thanks to cheap sex, marriage may be doomed.
The share of Americans ages 25-34 who are married dropped 13 percentage points from 2000 to 2014. A new book by sociologist Mark Regnerus blames this declining rate on how easy it is for men to get off.
Regnerus calls it “cheap sex,” an economic term meant to describe sex that has very little cost in terms of time or emotional investment, giving it little value.

Buzzfeed invited 3 couples to join in 30 days sex challenge. Rules laid down by participants themselves and some of them are:

Ginger Manley has talked about sex. A lot.
For nearly 40 years, Manley has worked as a sex therapist, gravitating toward the practice in the 1970s after working as a nurse practitioner. As part of her routine interviewing new patients with chronic illnesses, she would ask them about their ability to function sexually. The overwhelmingly common response — that things weren’t going well — prompted her to get more education and specialty training on the matter.
“’Sex’ is as important as eating or drinking and we ought to allow the one appetite to be satisfied with as little restraint or false modesty as the other.” -Marquis de Sade
After spending a good deal of yesterday on my social media accounts I was left thinking about the way that we tend to compare our lives to others. Humans have always done it, but now in the age of social media and very little personal privacy, every part of our lives end up on display. One can’t help but compare themselves to others. He has a better job, a bigger salary, a fancier car, a better vacation, is having better sex… wait, do we do it with sex and relationships too? ABSOLUTELY. This is probably the thing that we compare the most.
Sometimes a couple just finds themselves in a rut. No matter how much they want to get out of it and reconnect with each other, they just can’t. They’re stuck. This might sound familiar to you. You may be in that exact place right now. Maybe you have been there before and don’t want to go back. It’s not fun when you feel the distance between you and your partner.

Some of these games are a bit silly, but that’s the idea! You should be having fun together and once you’re able to laugh together again, you’ll be connecting in other ways too.

You’ve been seeing each other for a while, and it’s going great! You’ve hooked up several times a week for several months; you like him and he likes you back. But you might be starting to wonder: Are you just friends, or are you in a relationship?

But Americans today are having less of it than Americans a decade ago, according to a just-released study appearing in Archives of Sexual Behavior.
