You’re both working from home. You spent three hours binge-watching Too Hot to Handle. You’ve had a few glasses of wine during two back-to-back Zoom happy hours. You have nowhere to be tomorrow morning. If there was ever an ideal time to have sex, it would be right this second.
Sometimes your partner is in the mood, and you just want to lie in bed. Or sometimes you’re in the mood and they just want to sit on the couch and play video games. You both navigate between bursts of joy, boredom, panic, stress and exhaustion, but you’re always just slightly out of sync. And so it continues, as the days stretch into weeks. Into months.
If this is you, you’re not alone. Does it mean the relationship isn’t as strong as you’d initially thought? Or that you just aren’t “enough” for each other right now? Is there something you should be doing to keep things interesting in bed?
