There is so much more to a relationship than sex, but sex should be a part of your romantic relationship. I mean, think about it: if you’re not having sex with your partner, then how is your relationship with him any different than the one you have with your sister, best friend, father, or coworker? If you’ve been together for a while, then your comfort level is probably pretty high. Perhaps too high. You may already be wearing your period panties around him and using the toilet with him in the bathroom. You share gossip with him about your friends, and have shows you binge watch together over a bottle of wine. Can you see how, very quickly, if you stop having sex, you’ll just become like a couple of sorority sisters? Yikes! Don’t let that happen to your relationship—it’s hard to come back from. Here is what happens when you give up on sex in your relationship.
You become insecure
You start to feel insecure in your relationship. When you stop having sex, your body and his stop producing some very important bonding chemicals—chemicals that make him feel protective of and attached to you. And you can feel their absence.
