People are giving more importance to sex in relationships with rising awareness. But sometimes a hectic lifestyle and factors like stress can lead to patches where the couple lose physical intimacy for a while.

But such a dry phase doesn’t necessarily have to be the end of a relationship and an expert reveals the best way to get through it. She says that a couple should focus on importance of sex for them when they aren’t having sex as these dry spells can last for weeks or even months.

Rather than just sexual pleasure and orgasms, it’s important to pay attention to what’s missing from intimacy. Developing affection and touching in a less sexual way can help build intimacy.

She also said that many couples just have sex a number of times to feel normal and that frequency of sex can vary for different people. Having sex for such reasons gives rise to boredom which gradually makes people lose interest.

There also has to be communication as there is a need to be updated about changes in sexual desire over time and what partners want in the bedroom.

For single people the best thing in such situations is to explore self love and masturbation instead of just going for one night stands.
