I’ve been seeing my boyfriend for a year and we still only have sex at his place because he insists on freshly laundered, ironed sheets on a perfectly-made bed. We both have to shower first. Why can’t he cope with messy spontaneity and my untidy bedroom?
"My partner is a fitness fanatic and she only ever wants to have sex after a workout. It’s great when our endorphins are racing and we’re a bit sweaty, but sometimes I would like it to be after a romantic dinner, like a normal couple. Why doesn’t she fancy me at any other time?”
I’ve started going out with a funny, charming, kind man who has a really unpleasant, untidy, dirty house, and his bedroom is the worst of all. He has tried to make an effort, but it’s still not great. We can’t always go back to mine.
My husband and I are going through a stressful patch in our lives, and our sex life has suffered. We know it’s important to be physically close and we miss the intimacy. I think I am more affected by it than him. What can we do?
