Sexually, things can sometimes start to fizzle when you’ve been with the same person for awhile. Well, according to an article in Women’s Health,
A new study published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior reveals just when you can expect to hit the peak sexual stage in your relationship. Researchers surveyed nearly 3,000 couples ages 25 to 41 once a year for three years, asking them how satisfied they were with their sex lives, among other things. After controlling for other variables, researchers found that respondents reported the highest rate of satisfaction with their sex lives in the second half of the first year of the relationship. And unfortunately, after the first year, their sexual satisfaction steadily declined. Study authors say this is likely because the first year is when a relationship is fresh and new, and when partners are beginning to learn about each other’s sexual desires. Other findings: living together nor getting married had any impact on a couple’s sexual satisfaction, couples who were trying to conceive a child or were expecting a child had a boost in sexual satisfaction, and couples happiest with their sex lives were those that engaged in “intimate communication.”
I think every one and every relationship is different, but I get what this article is saying.
