      i honestly can't say, as i've never been in a serious relationship before, and the ones that i did have didn't last that long at all.  however, to get back to your question, i don't think sex should ever become routinely boring at all.  if you feel it is, then maybe you should try other things to stimulate the relationship.  after all, relationships only become routine if you allow it to be. 

      like you can probably try like kama sutra positions. not that i would know, as i've never used them.  however from what i've heard, they work pretty well.  then you can also try roleplaying where you both act out your fantasies.  i know a few people that told me that works for them.  lol. 

      plus, you can always heavily emphasize on the foreplay a bit more.  after all, i think the problem from what most people tell me about their relationships, that sex becomes so routine that they don't even bother with it.  however, i think that mind set alone is what causes it, as there a lot of foreplay methods that can work that most people don't even consider outside the norm.  i would tell you more, but i don't want to get banned from forums.  lol lol lol  anyway, i hope that helps you.  don't ask me how i know all this stuff, as i have very little experience with relationships in general in my life.  however, lets just say that i just know what i know due to people always TELLING me about their sex lives.  lol.  don't ask me why they tell me, but they just do even though i never ask them to.

      If it got that far, you missed all the warning signs and it might be too late. If it isn't, then go to the hub daochii, and try that intimacy approach. Sex is not always dependent on sexual contact and orgasmic release. Sex is in the soul. If you're bored, your OWN soul has withered.

    people think marriage can destroy sex..., but I believe, people eventually don't marry for sex only, there other things in life to share besides sex. If the two are truly in love, they can always rekindle that spark.

    With age, some positions become a bit uncomfortable. Maybe that's why one tends to put sex in the back burner once you're married. The couch potato position is much more comfortable than a 69.

    Jaggedfrostposted 6 years ago

    Perhaps it might be observed that those who find their sex life boring are those who have stopped being romantics at heart.  Heaven knows men do this more then women or at least when a man starts to be romantic I have never met a woman who won't jump on that band wagon in an instant.   Usually there is a lot more resistance the other way around.  I have gone through periods in my relationship with my wife where there were pauses but I am a very patient if passionate person.  I made sure that when my partner felt capable of being romantic I made it an event to remember.

    Jaggedfrostposted 6 years ago

    lol @ Greek and @ Worldgrandeur  If one actually cares about the feelings of one's wife and spent the time to get to know her before making love those problems go away but until they do it is probably important to have a perspective that gives womanhood some slack in their efforts to keep from bruising your egos.  When the numbers state only twenty percent of women feel satisfied after intercourse it is the men who need to brush up on their Shakespeare.

      LOL, I'm sure you would and I'd love to give it to you, but it was just a comment.

      Unfortunately, I know too many people, women mostly who find sex to be just another demand in an already too demanding life.  Sex is such a pleasure, I just find it sad that there are people who lose the ability to enjoy it, that's all.

      Timing is everything. If I drive down to my husband's shop right now, drag him off into his office, lock the door behind us and jump his bones, I can have a really good time with him.  But, if I wait till he gets home after a 12 hr. day, the last thing on his mind is sex and all he will want to do is eat his supper and fall asleep on the sofa while watching the news on TV.

    If sex is boring, pointless and emotionless then don't do it. I think that point has already been made but it's worth repeating. It all depends what your looking for when you have sex.
    Many years ago I was with a girlfriend in a bar, watching a Rugby match. She asked why it is that men scream at a football game but not during intercourse. I told her that it's because most men know the difference between scoring and making love. If the only reason your doing it is to make your partner happy, then good for you. If all you want to do is score a fake scream is just as loud as a real one. If you are doing it for your own pleasure then wait until it's pleasurable. Either way, the only reasons for sex are Love, Lust or fun. If you have a combination of all three you're on to a winner.
    If you don't have any of those, I refer you to the wisdom of the Greek One and his ShakeSpeare.

    lol  not that i agree with it, as i think SEX should be on that list, and i don't know about the talking part.  as i usually have very little to say, so it's always nice to talk to someone that talks a lot.  this way, i don't have to.  lol.  however, you got to admit that's funny stuff.  lol.

              As for the OP...I agree that divorce works wonders. Luckily, I have yet to find the activity burdensome in any way...except maybe in the middle of summer when it's 100 degrees out, then it's a lot more work, but still most definitely worth it. My husband may have a different take on things, though...I think he thought by the third trimester I might have slowed down a bit tongue.

    In all seriousness - there are times when I feel it is my obligation/responsibility to satisfy my fiance, even when I have no interest in physical contact at the time.
    What it usually boils down to is this:
    He needs that physical intimacy in order to "feel" the connection of our love.  When I deny him that - neither one of us gets what we want/need.
    By giving him that connection it opens him back up to be able to provide the type of intimacy I need - which is through verbal communication and intelectual stimulation.

    It's just part of being in a commited relationship. You do what you can to make the other person happy & let them know you love them and that you are willing to compromise.

    You are a very good sort of woman Mom Kat even if, in my opinion, that shouldn't be an initial sacrifice that you should have to be, as a woman, required to make first.  I expect more of my sex then to at the minimum mope and act pathetic until they get what they want so that their wife can get what they need.

      I look at it from more of a psychological standpoint than most I think.
      I know that I don't always think in a "main streem" accepted manner.

      I understand the reason behind his desire to be physical.  Most men feel the act of physical intimacy is the closest form of bonding they can share with their partner.  His desire to be physical stems from his desire to show me he loves me.  By saying "no" - I am sending the message that I am rejecting his love, or his attempt at showing me love.
      I know how much it stings when I want to show someone how much I care and they reject it. I would never want to cause him to feel that same pain/hurt.
      I feel that my understanding on where he is coming from, coupled with my willingness to give first - opens up the opportunity for us to mend issues rather then escolate them.
      I know that once I show him I am willing to accept his "offerings of love" - he will be more capable/willing/able to provide the conversation & sharing I need/want.

        I completely understand and appreciate what you're saying. But I've been married five times (I won't even talk about the boyfriends) and not always to the sensitive, caring types either.  My first husband was an old pervert, seriously... he was bisexual and into BSDM, and he taught me that sex and love don't always have to go hand in hand. Sometimes you just want to feel good and get laid without all the emotional baggage that comes with loving someone.

          Totally - I've met my share of selfish, self serving men who only wanted to have their cake and eat it too.  Not every man was raised with honor, respect, and all the other good stuff we look for in a long, meaningful relationship.
          That being said - women can be just as bad.  Booty calls & using people happens by both men and women.
