Honesty isn't easy

Couples frequently cite communication issues as the source of intimacy problems.

Many people believe that a good relationship can be measured by the frequency of how often a couple have sex.

But a couple’s sex life changes over time.

Busy lives, sleepless nights, too much stress and anxiety are all factors, and will contribute to a change or decline in a couple’s sex life. Individuals have different libidos and expect different things from sex. Problems can easily arise, and can be painful and difficult to talk about and to seek advice for.

In this section are a range of articles on various issues associated with sex and intimacy, including real stories about couples’ experiences (both good and bad), information about issues that can affect a couple’s sex life, and advice on getting over an affair.
