    Well, at least I know what I have to look forward to.

    Wait ... I'll shoot myself if I start reading about sex as opposed to having it when I am middle-aged. That and I won't watch Lifetime .... or We or Oxygen.

    So, I guess the point was: "Is this supposed to be news?"

    A poll of nearly 10 people at the pub was unanimous that the Telegraph would publish any old ***** to full up the paper.

    Unfortunately for most married men, wives would rather read about it than do it

    Well that's a damn shame and I would consider my life to be pretty much over if I reached that point.

    Hey, why you all hating on rdowns. :D

    No shock here. Men are more visual and look at porn. Women are more cerebral and read about sex.

    As for married men not getting it, I find that argument to be complete and utter ********. Most of my friends are married (we're all in our 40s) and have been for more than 10 years. All but one have great sex lives. Maybe married men need to step up their games. Maybe you aren't cutting it for your lady.

    I think that putting all the pressure on the man is not right, either... that is one thing that gets in a lot of women's way in enjoying sex. They think that having sex involves just sitting there and having everything done to them, and they don't understand why they don't really enjoy it. Anyway, there's no good reason sex shouldn't continue to be an active part of your relationship all the way through... but both partners have to make a serious effort to make sex meaningful.

    IMHO, sex is an extension of the whole relationship. When things are good and both partners are giving to each other, sex is good and improves the relationship. When things are bad and there are resentments and selfishness, sex makes everything worse.

    I believe that women tend to "feel" all of it more, though, cause that is, for the most part, how they are. Men can have sex without relating it to love, women are not as capable of that. (I know that last statement was a generalization and is not true for everyone.)

    So does this survey applies only to those in UK or this is a generally accepted globally? Well i do not quite understand how women in other parts of the world feel or what their general perception of about sex is.

    Wait till you have sprogs, if you're that way inclined.

    Most couples I know, their sex lives vanish once you have kids. It's not just going off sex, it's really really wanting to have sex, both of you, but absolutely no time or energy in between holing jobs down (both of you) and looking after kids at night and dealing with feeding and dressing and generally being a full-on all round decent parent. There's nothing left over. Sleep and personal space becomes more valuable.

    No offense, my dear, but I kind of, um, hypothetically, thought you were already middle aged?

    Serious internet cajones.

    I've just realized that everybody here is completely ageless to me. Strange that I never wondered...

    True.

    All part of life. :)

    Good point.

    Probably a good idea. :D

    It wasn't meant to be insulting to her. Just an appropriate answer to Melrose's statement/question that I thought was both funny, and appropriate. :p


    And I'm really surprised that nobody made any silly replies to my previous post. :confused: I figured someone here would respond with something like, "It must have been a short story", or perhaps, "No need to read it. I heard it was anti-climactic at the end".
