David Deida said “The purpose of your intimacy is the passionate transmission of love, the rejuvenative healing of sexual energy, and the cultivation of heart through your mutual commitment to spiritual awakening.”
Many couples in couples therapy may complain about sex issues: discrepancies in desire, lack of attraction or sexual compatibility, arousal or orgasm problems, going through infidelity or in the trigger of trauma or other sexual challenges. Such issues are most often part of an underlying lack of safety and connection in the relationship that is caused by the unhealthy cycle between the partners.
Sex is very important in a relationship because it is how we bond at a greater level. By having sex with your partner, you show them that you care about their needs and you trust them. It is important to note that sex is not just physical; it can also be an emotional and mental adventure that brings you closer to your partner. Remember that the most important sexual organ is the brain.
When couples argue or resentful, they start drifting further away from physical intimacy. As they start to feel more disconnected, they’re not apt to feel very sexual, and a destructive cycle takes over. To regain a positive sex life, couples need to find a way to put sex back on the top of the list find a way to reduce daily and relationship stresses where they can. Both partners must redirect positive energy toward their relationship with each other, and get over feelings of anger, guilt or excuses that they are too busy, or too tired.
Start a ritual together, then work from there. For example, plan a special night, or simply spend quality time together after the kids have gone to bed, devote some attention to each other at least one night a week, if not more. Soon stress in your relationship will diminish and a greater connection will be established. This, in turn, will enable you to deal better with other life’s stress and that vicious negative circle that you face will rapidly reverse into a positive beneficial experience. You will feel happier, you’ll be more connected, feel supported and fulfilled.
Even though many women and men think it’s the key to a great connection, the importance of sex in a relationship is completely subjective. What one person might consider a crucial factor, another may dismiss altogether. How much sex matters within your own relationship is something only you can decide. If you and your partner are content with the situation – no matter what that is – then you may have already found your answer.
Intimacy and sex are not the same thing. Sex without intimacy is just physical. Intimacy without sex can be pure and spiritual. But sex with someone you love can be gentle and tender, hot and wild, comfortable or simply sublime.
