The age-old stereotype of horny husband pestering frigid wife is becoming less and less, well, typical, as it emerges that there are just as many men not in the mood for a little horizontal hokey-cokey of an evening as their female counterparts.
The NHS website explains that loss of libido, also known as having a low sex drive, is a serious and common problem that affects 1 in 5 men and even more women at some point in their life. Every day issues such as stress, exhaustion, alcohol, medication and getting older are all factors in why you might not be in the mood.
After an article on Huffington Post in which several women told their stories about their sexless marriages, TNT have compiled their own top ten reasons (from women) for not feeling amorous:
- Pissed off at partner
- Too tired
- Time of the month
- We’ll wake the kids
- Busy watching TV
- I don’t feel pretty/ I don’t feel sexy
- I feel fat
- I haven’t worked out today
- I got nothing sexy to wear coz I’m skint
Are you guilty of using any of these excuses? Or maybe you have your own? Share your thoughts below.
