My husband's sex drive has gone off the boil since our wedding

Dear Coleen

I have been married nearly two years now. Before we were married my husband was really interested in me, but now that we’re married he never touches me and rarely wants to have sex – it’s always me making the first move.

And when we do have sex he struggles to get aroused and sometimes goes floppy while we’re doing it. What does this mean?

Coleen says

I think it means you need to ask him what he feels the problem is, but you need to be prepared for his answer.

Maybe it’s a psychological issue in that he doesn’t feel the same since getting married – perhaps it’s not as exciting for him any more.

Or maybe there’s a physical problem that he needs to discuss with his doctor.

Two years isn’t long enough to have got into a rut – you should still be at a stage where things are very passionate and exciting.

Talking about sex is never easy, but I don’t think there’s an alternative unless you’re happy to continue the way things are.

Have the conversation, but do it away from the bedroom, so neither of you feels under pressure to perform.
