A Descriptive Analysis of Sexual Problems in Long-Term Heterosexual Relationships

As I commented on Twitter:

Was there perhaps wisdom in traditions that advised careful cultivation of sexual desire (less focus on orgasm), in contrast with today's sexology advice, which advises exhausting desire, and then ramping up stimulation when habituation sets in - thus numbing pleasure response?

Wonderful posts thank you

I feel so blessed that I found this website and Karezza. The problems that others have around not enough sex, etc, is not my problem and sex is better and better, not more boring as described so often in these studies and observations.

One thing that went a long time ago with my wife is desire, but that doesn’t really matter. Apparently we are in the top 7 % anyway, couples who have been together a long time and having sex four times a week, LOL.


Hi, sorry if this is too personal, but what do you mean by the loss of desire? Do you not desire your wife anymore? Is this mutual? I’m just curious by what you meant. Thank you

Here’s what I mean

I love my wife and she loves me. We have frequent Karrezza intercourse. But she has no sexual libido to speak of. She never had a strong sex drive, and since menopause has zero sex drive.


Does she enjoy it?

I've always wondered from your posts that, since your wife is willing to participate so frequently, is it that she mostly doesn't enjoy it that much, or that she does enjoy it but wouldn't think to initiate?
