When it comes to sex, what is normal, anyway? Although the idea of sex saturates just about everything — it’s all over advertising, TV shows, and the Internet — discussions about what’s really going on in people’s bedroom can be few and far between. So when you experience pretty normal sex problems no couple should be ashamed of, you and your partner may feel like something is seriously off in your relationship. More open discourse could help couples everywhere realize that these problems are very common and (in most cases) capable of being fixed.
Maybe you’re both just too tired from work and childcare to even think about anything other than sleep. Or maybe your desires don’t match up perfectly once the relationship is more settled. These don’t have to be issues that tear you apart as a couple; chances are, with a little honest communication and schedule readjustment, you can find a level of sexuality that fits both of you. It’s more about what actually works for you as a couple instead of measuring up to the amount and type of sex you think you “should” be having. And what’s more sexy than a couple who can communicate together and find compromises that benefit them both?
