husband less interested in sex than earlier in marriage
My husband and I have been happily married for 13 years, and still are, but lately he just isn't interested in sex like he used to be. He used to want to make love almost every day and now it's maybe once a week. He has had prostate trouble which is now better, but I can't initiate sex at all anymore.... I have talked to him about this and he kindly says it's just me being insecure but something is different. He is an amazing husband and father and I love him with all my heart and I know that he loves me. I just don't understand what has changed.
Unquestionably, things happened to change a man's sex drive. There will be medical issues--like his prostrate problem--these have an effect, but we have no expertise in these areas and can make no comment. It may be wise to consult with your doctor.
There are other reasons that a man's sex drive might diminish. Here are just a few:
- increasing age
- stress and emotional struggles
- pornography (or if not porn, then sexual distractions caused by responding to a sexualized environment)
- decreasing emotional connection
- reduced intimacy spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually can result in a decrease in the sexual component of intimacy.
