When the Cause of a Sexless Relationship Is — Surprise! — the Man

Monday, March 19, 2018 | 2 a.m.

There are varying definitions of a sexless marriage or sexless relationship: no sex in the past year, no sex in the past six months or sex 10 or fewer times a year. According to one study, approximately 15 percent of married couples are sexless: spouses who haven’t had sex with each other in the past six months to one year.

I have debated admitting this publicly, but my story feels different from the narrative advanced by our patriarchal society. Why? Because I was the one begging for sex from a uninterested male partner. Sex 10 times a year would have been 10 times more than what I was having.
