Rajan Bhonsle, consultant in sexual medicine & counsellor and his wife Minnu Bhonsle, consulting psychotherapist & counsellor highlight an epidemic that is common amongst today’s working couples
Sex and Passion
Some admit it, some won’t, but all are aware that sex and passion are as integral to a relationship, as emotional bonding. A relationship is healthy if there is both sexual and emotional compatibility.
Going on dates, holidays, binge-watching Netflix or spending quality time with the children have a very positive effect on the sense of well being of a person, but what kind of action one is having between the sheets also goes a long way to create a bonding between two individuals.
How two people are conveying and communicating their sexual needs says a lot about what kind of a long-term relationship they will have. Sometimes this wrong idea is perpetuated that as long as emotional bonding is there sex is not important.
But that is a wrong thing that a couple can believe in. If there is no effort to sustain sex then inevitably the relationship would fizzle out at some point.
