You mum may also have never spelled out to you how desire can fluctuate according to where you are in your menstrual cycle and also depending upon how well you are currently getting on with your partner.
Sustaining a long-term relationship is not just about sex but about companionship and sharing chores and laughing together and so on. All these things can affect our sex lives. Also, stress and tiredness have big adverse effects on sex.
Your mum may not have known this – let alone have thought to tell you – because perhaps her life was not quite as complicated as yours.
Today’s woman is so often juggling a full-time job, children, elderly parents, maybe step-children and so on – which is an awful lot to cope with. No wonder sex sometimes slips down our list of priorities.
