Why, mainly in males, is the duration of marriage a factor with sexual inactivity?
Dr. Trina’s Response:
(1) Sex for men is one of the few ways they can show emotion. It is their emotional connection to their partner-most people believe it is the woman.
When the sex stops, so does his main outlet to have an emotional bond.
(2) Men’s biological nature is to “go forth and spread their seed.” Anthropologists have proven that humans coupled long enough to conceive and raise the child until it was self-mobile (approximately two to three years). Then the man moved on.
(3) Over half the world’s population today is polygamous. Even though our socially accepting form of bonding here in the Western world is “to death do us part” it is not a natural state for human beings.
