Life happens, which means dry spells happen, am I right? No biggie—unless that dry spell morphs into more of a, well, severe drought. Wondering why don't I want to have sex anymore? Factors like stress, time, and kids can seriously zap your sex drive. That said, you shouldn't just give up on your sex life forever.
Is It O.K. to Find Sexual Satisfaction Outside Your Marriage?
I’m in an open marriage, and now I desire other partners more than my husband.
In the movie Far From Heaven, four young housewives discuss their sex lives over lunchtime daiquiris. The boldest of the group coaxes the others to reveal how often their husbands want to make love. Can you imagine? The movie is set in the '50s and the clothing and interior decorating reflect the era, as does the girlish modesty of the confessions. Sex is presented as a wifely duty, an activity that, while not unpleasant, is engaged in because one's husband insists on it. Still, while the women roll their eyes at their husbands' appetites, the tone is one of thrilled, bubbling excitement. Half a century later, in a San Francisco kitchen, the subject is the same but the conversation is very different.
Having Sex with Other People Makes My Husband and I Want Each Other More

We might text a few times in the next week or two, but only to schedule more sex. When I first met the man who is now my husband, neither of us expected anything beyond friendship and fun, despite our obvious attraction to each other.
