Surviving‌ ‌a‌ ‌sexless‌ ‌marriage‌ ‌or‌ ‌relationship‌ ‌can‌ ‌be‌ ‌an‌ ‌ordeal‌ ‌for‌ ‌any‌ ‌couple,‌ ‌but‌ ‌it‌ ‌doesn’t‌ ‌have‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌ the‌ ‌end‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌road.‌ ‌The‌ ‌first‌ ‌step‌ ‌toward‌ ‌remedying‌ ‌this‌ ‌issue‌ ‌is‌ ‌to‌ ‌delve‌ ‌deeper‌ ‌into‌ ‌its‌ ‌underlying‌ ‌ triggers.‌ ‌One‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌common‌ ‌reasons‌ ‌behind‌ ‌one‌ ‌partner’s‌ ‌lack‌ ‌of‌ ‌interest‌ ‌in‌ ‌sex‌ ‌could‌ ‌be‌ ‌unresolved‌ sexual‌ ‌trauma‌ ‌from‌ ‌the‌ ‌past.‌ ‌Similarly,‌ ‌lacking‌ ‌or‌ ‌fizzling‌ ‌out‌ ‌emotional‌ ‌intimacy‌ ‌can‌ ‌also‌ ‌put‌ ‌your‌ ‌sex‌ ‌life‌ ‌in‌ ‌limbo.‌ ‌ ‌

Often,‌ ‌not‌ ‌knowing‌ ‌your‌ ‌way‌ ‌around‌ ‌your‌ ‌partner’s‌ ‌body‌ ‌and‌ ‌vice-versa‌ ‌can‌ ‌also‌ ‌take‌ ‌pleasure‌ ‌out‌ ‌of‌ ‌sexual‌ interactions,‌ ‌making‌ ‌it‌ ‌less‌ ‌and‌ ‌less‌ ‌appealing.‌ ‌Talking‌ ‌about‌ ‌sex‌ ‌and‌ ‌an‌ ‌uninhibited‌ ‌approach‌ ‌toward‌ expressing‌ ‌sexual‌ ‌needs‌ ‌and‌ ‌desires‌ ‌can‌ ‌prove‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌an‌ ‌effective‌ ‌tool‌ ‌toward‌ ‌combatting‌ ‌this‌ ‌roadblock‌ ‌that‌ ‌hinders‌ ‌intimacy‌ ‌and‌ ‌gives‌ ‌way ‌to‌ ‌sexless‌ ‌marriages‌ ‌and‌ ‌relationships.‌ ‌ ‌

You‌ ‌may‌ ‌not‌ ‌always‌ ‌be‌ ‌able‌ ‌to‌ ‌identify‌ ‌the‌ ‌signs‌ ‌your‌ ‌partner‌ ‌is‌ ‌faking‌ ‌it‌ ‌in‌ ‌bed.‌ ‌This‌ ‌is‌ ‌especially‌ ‌true‌ ‌for‌ ‌women‌ ‌who‌ ‌can‌ ‌fake‌ ‌climax‌ ‌signs‌ ‌and‌ ‌continue‌ ‌engaging‌ ‌in‌ ‌sex‌ ‌out‌ ‌of‌ ‌a‌ ‌sense‌ ‌of‌ ‌obligation‌ ‌toward‌ ‌their‌ ‌partners‌ ‌and‌ ‌relationships.‌ ‌Reaching‌ ‌out‌ ‌and‌ ‌talking‌ ‌to‌ ‌them‌ ‌is‌ ‌the‌ ‌best‌ ‌recourse‌ ‌for‌ ‌resolving‌ ‌issues‌ ‌of‌ ‌dissatisfying‌ ‌or‌ ‌non-existent‌ ‌sex‌ ‌life.‌ ‌ ‌
