Paul Hokemeyer, PhD, Marriage & Family Therapy, answeredYes. Romantic relationships are based on an intimacy that is born of trust. The more one partner can allow him or her self to be intimate and vulnerable with their mate, the deeper and more satisfying their sex lives will become. This is not to say that you need to engage in any sexual activity that makes you feel unsafe or puts your health at risk. The vulnerability I am talking about is based on honesty, love of others and love of self.Helpful? 3 people found this helpful.
Good In Bed answeredWe have all heard the stories about couples who fight like cats and dogs but have great sex that keeps them coming back for more. In fact, you may have found yourself in a relationship that was wrong in most respects but sexually exciting -- maybe this is even how you justified it. It begs the question: Is the quality or health of a relationship really connected to a couple’s sexual satisfaction?
The answer is resoundingly yes. Research has shown that the happiest relationships are also the most sexually satisfied relationships over the long term. You can have a bad relationship, with amazing sex, but rarely does the satisfaction last. These relationships either don’t endure long-term or become less satisfying and, eventually, the sex follows suit.
Most sex therapists agree that when a sexual complaint crops up in a relationship, there tends to be an interpersonal issue contributing to or causing it, whether it is how a couple communicates, how they make each other feel, or how connected they are outside of the bedroom. In most cases, relationship quality is indeed related to what’s going on sexually and vice versa.Helpful? 5 people found this helpful.
