Even though most guides will tell you that a great relationship isn’t based exclusively on sex, it would be insincere to claim sex to be irrelevant either. Now, over the course of years, novelists, philosophers, and theologians liked to give an abstract (almost idealistic) dimension to romantic relationships. On the other hand, modern science tends to strongly disagree on more than several of these issues. According to numerous surveys, the root of most relationship problems is of either financial or sexual nature. With this in mind, here are few ways in which sex can make or break a relationship.
Sexual Compatibility and Its Significance
They say that mathematics divides people into two groups – the first one are the people who don’t get it and the other group are the people who don’t get what’s not to get. A similar thing goes with sexual compatibility. Everyone has their own fetishes or at least sexual preferences and you would be surprised just how hard it may be to find someone who enjoys the same things in bed as you do. In fact, some people find this to be so significant, that they will choose to stay in a relationship with a person who they have little in common with. As unexpected as this may sound, this is an example where great sex has a negative effect on your relationship.
The Issue of Communication
Another thing that a lot of people tend to forget is the fact that good sex requires an open and sincere communication attempts. While there are more than a few nonverbal ways to suggest something to your partner, it is highly advisable to ask your partner before you try something new in bed. According to experts behind a prestigious sexual health clinic, the power of communication is so great that it can on its own fight stress and thus help with issues such as anxiety-caused erectile dysfunction. As you probably already know, the issue of communication is important on virtually every level of your relationship and the lack of it in sexual issues may be a symptom of a much bigger underlying problem.
Different Sex Drives
Finally, a relationship between people who have different sex drives can be a huge issue, one that can put even some of the strongest relationships in peril. A lot of people believe that love always goes hand in hand with sexual attraction. It is easy to see how the lack of one partner’s sexual desire might be interpreted as a more serious relationship problem.
This particular problem can be solved with masturbation, nonetheless, this is something that can easily backfire. In a scenario where your libido is greater than that of your SO, masturbation helps you alleviate this sexual tension on your own. Nonetheless, with the lack of proper communication (again with the communication), your partner can interpret this in the wrong way.
The thing about sex is that it reflects your relationship in more than several ways. The lack of communication in the bedroom can only serve as a symptom of a lack of communication in the relationship. The inability to satisfy your partner (or the other way around) can result in a lack of self-confidence or even trust in your partner. Finally, people who are happy with their sex life tend to have less interest in focusing on minor problems in their relationship and usually exercise a much greater level of tolerance towards their partner. To wrap things up – the secret to the perfect relationship lies in good communication and a VERY good sex.
