Can bad sex alone be the reason for a breakup?

Bad sex undoubtedly creates tensions in a relationship. Some recent statistics find it is the second most common reason for breakups

What do you call “ bad sex”? There have been several surveys conducted about the issue.

Among the male participants 41 percent cited lack of orgasm; 36 percent named lack of foreplay; and 29 percent said that female partners did no reciprocate oral sex.

Among women, 44 percent of participants say that sex was bad they could not get climax.

If sex is bad before the relationship started, there would hardly be any break up because of bad sex. Both partners have known the quality of sex prior to starting a serious relationship.

But what if a partner loses the ability to perform good sex later on? It is mostly men who can suffer sexual dysfunction for smoking or excessive alcohol consumption. Sexual dysfunction also can occur because of an unhealthy lifestyle and certain types of medication.

Some diseases like diabetes, heart disease can reduce blood flow in penises. As a result, a man can be partially or fully impotent. Some surgical interventions can affect potency.

Some kinds of sexual dysfunction can be cured by medications. These temporary problems should not shake a serious relationship.

If a man loses potency permanently, a relationship can suffer a setback. When the couple is young, it is unlikely that the relationship will survive.

If the couple is old and matured, they can work something out in case of bad sex.

It also can be a case for the woman. Some accidents can occur. The female partner can be physically disabled as a result. It is inhuman to come out from a relationship for that reason.

If an accident does happen that makes one’s wife disabled, he has some moral obligations. In this case, the husband should be more devoted and attached to her regardless of sex.

I am sure, your wife would do the same for you. Once, I suffered temporary sexual dysfunction due to my smoking habit. My wife stood by me. I quit smoking and started to live healthier. It took many months before I regained my potency. She was waiting with patience and helping.

Our relationship never suffered a setback because of bad sex. But if my sexual dysfunction was permanent and my wife did not have a child, it could be another scenario. Maybe I would leave her before she did.

Sex is not just for pleasure, it is a physical necessity. Good sex helps both our physical and mental health. It also is part of intimacy and love. Repeated bad sex is a serious problem for a relationship.

Sex is the second most important thing next to money for a relationship.

It is not difficult to do more intense and effective foreplay. Partners should concentrate on better sex. They can explore the erogenous zone and stimulate the zone. Partners must give attention and energy to improve the quality of sex.

You must take your relationship seriously if you want to continue it
