In our new series called, ‘I need advice’, we bring you questions that real-life people have asked in publications around the world. These are hard-hitting issues faced by men and women today. The questions could range from family, relationships and work, to abuse and sex.
Today’s question was sent to us from a user. If you have a question, please write in to us at email@example.com.
My wife and I are married for 2 years. No kids.
We both are happily busy with our jobs and work as we are into our prime time of our individual careers.
Pre-lockdown, we were always worried because we were not able to give time to each other, considering our job timings. However, in spite of that, we were able to enjoy a pretty decent bedroom life.
When the lockdown was enforced, we were forced to work from home. It turned out to be a boon for us. We worked from home and made love daily. Things were very nice for a couple of months.
Then the problem began.
Slowly I began to feel less and less attracted to my wife and lost the enthusiasm for lovemaking.
I don’t know what the reason for that is. Maybe it is the same household routine, daily fixed work. The fact that I am locked inside the house for three months is killing me from inside.
Things are becoming difficult day by day as my wife is asking the reason for it. Obviously, I don't want to tell her that I am bored of regular sex. It has become too “common” for me. There is nothing exciting in it anymore.
She loves me a lot and enjoys our lovemaking session. Evidently, she has not grown “bored” of it and want to continue our “sessions” every night.
I just cannot bring myself to have sex again.
This lockdown has turned out to be huge problem for me. Please help me.
