What is a life without sex

Intimate Confessions: A Life Without Sex?

Sex without love - no problem! Many people can imagine that. But love without sex? Zero-orgasm relationships aren't all that rare. According to recent studies by sex researchers, sex is extremely important for only 16 percent of all people. But who would have thought: women demand more eroticism than men. Only 23 percent are willing to give their partner time if things don't go well in bed. For comparison: the men were more patient at 33 percent. For many, passion is an emotional glue that strengthens the sense of togetherness. If you do without it, you don't necessarily have to be dissatisfied. Couples often draw their happiness from the security they give themselves. Zero sex - definitely an exciting topic. Here women speak plain language.

Nadine (49): "His fear of failure in bed kills our lust"

We met at Tinder. Everyone thinks, of course, that they can't get out of bed at all. Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! I'm frustrated and would like to sleep with Markus a lot more often. But it's enough for him if we attack each other every few weeks. He doesn't say so, but he's afraid he'll fail. Maybe he has had a bad experience. That's a problem. I'm too young to give up sex! "

Franziska (45): "He wants us to have an open relationship"

“I would have expected anything, just not. Sure, our love life isn't as sparkling as it used to be, but Sven's suggestion blew me away. He wants us to have an open relationship and also to have sex with three people so that it crackles again. We need outside kicks to end our lull in bed, he says. I feel sick at the thought. We have to do it on our own. Just because he wants more sex, I don't go to bed with total strangers or women. Can't be serious ?! I really love Sven. But if he insists, that's the beginning of the end for me. Sex really can't be that important. "

Sandra (51): "Security is much more important to me than eroticism"

“Sex is overrated. Much more important to me than orgasms are trust, closeness and security. We have been married for 20 years now. I can completely rely on Thomas. That counts. Sure, we used to have more sex. But to be honest, that was never my greatest passion. Not even at 20. I am happy. It is Thomas too. We don't miss anything. And we like to make ourselves really comfortable in bed. "

Regine (40): “From really sharp to zero! What should I actually think of that? "

“I've been living with my boyfriend for two years now. He's a dream guy: charming, great body, funny. In the beginning we had really hot sex. Without taboos. Always and everywhere. He is an exciting seducer. Or at least it was. Everything has been different for a few months. Since Lennart got this new job in a big advertising agency. He is totally under pressure, always stressed and has no desire for sex anymore. I don't even know how to deal with it. In the evening he often smokes a joint to come down. And then nothing more can be done with him. He promises that this will change again. It really has to be! "

Nicole (46): “Marriage without? I would be gone immediately "

“How can you live without sex? Inconceivably! Eroticism is important to me. It makes me feel alive, desired, beautiful. And that's good for my self-esteem. If my husband didn't feel like seeing me anymore, I would part with him. "

Christiane (42): "I'll get my satisfaction elsewhere"

“How can you live without sex? Inconceivably! Eroticism is important to me. It makes me feel alive, desired, beautiful. And that's good for my self-esteem. If my husband didn't feel like seeing me anymore, I would part with him. "
