If you have been having trouble in the bedroom, it has probably affected your self-esteem and confidence. Often, when women experience sexual difficulties they keep the problem to themselves and only think about how it is affecting them and their partner in the bedroom itself. Yet sexual dysfunction can affect your relationship in many other ways. Here are just a few.
Lack of Intimacy
While sex is not the only way to be intimate with your partner, it is one of the primary ways that couples show intimacy. You may find yourself pulling away from your partner to avoid sex. This leads to a general lack of intimacy. This lack of intimacy can carry over into your daily lives and make you and your partner feel as though you are growing apart.
Fear of Rejection
All humans have an inherent fear of rejection. When women are not able to achieve orgasm or enjoy sex, it can make a partner feel as though they are being rejected. Likewise, a woman who feels she is not satisfying her partner may feel as though she could be rejected at any time. This mutual fear of rejection can cause issues within the relationship itself.
Lack of Communication
Many women are not comfortable talking to their partners about their sexual problems. They may fake orgasms or avoid the topic as much as possible. If you find yourself not communicating with your partner about sex, you may also begin to lack communication in other areas.
