Everyday stress hampers the bedroom activities!
Living in the age of Tinder and all the hookups that come with it, you might think people are having more sex than ever, but it’s just not true. According to the sexperts and their research, we’re actually getting it on less than ever before and only doing it 1.5 times a week on average. And that’s if you’re lucky.
So why has there been a decline in sexual frequency? A new survey from BBC Radio 5 Live in the U.K. reveals the number one problem in the bedroom isn’t being too busy or spending too much time on social media. It seems the reason we’re not having more sex is a common problem: stress.
According to the survey results, nearly half (45%) of respondents claim stress has negatively impacted their sex life. The number two reason people gave was physical health (32%), followed by mental health issues (26%), and having kids (20%). The survey also finds that a quarter of women admit they’re not happy with their sex lives. But sex is actually one of the best stress relievers, so it’s kind of ironic it’s the reason we’re not doing it more often.
As for how to get your groove back in the bedroom, relationship therapist Ellen Brady has some surprising advice. “Ban sex,” she explains. “Because whatever you’ve been doing sexually it’s gone wrong. So you want to wipe it out and start again, reconnecting emotionally and in terms of intimacy.” And maybe if we just stop stressing about not having sex, we’ll start having more of it.
