Posted July 30, Reviewed by Jessica Schrader. Few activities are as exciting as sex. There is a lot of biology that makes sex so interesting. The survival of the species depends on it. And yet, some people lose interest in having sex with their partner.
How can something so exciting get so boring? However, there are plenty of people who are still interested in sex in general, but much less interested in being sexual with their partner. They still have sexual thoughts and fantasiesthey still respond to sexual stimuli like a racy scene in a movieand perhaps even still masturbate regularly, but they feel bored or avoid sex with their partner. Usually the first reason long-term couples give for fading desire is familiarity—excitement requires some amount of novelty and uncertainty, both of which fall to the unstoppable march of familiarity.
Yes, but no. If you feel that you know your partner too well, then perhaps you have fallen into a rut of just doing all that same old stuff. More of the same can indeed lose its spark.

Without selling out your integrity, I would also encourage you to sometimes put unresolved disagreements aside temporarily and make a point of connecting with your partner, sexually and otherwise.
In fact, some positive connection can boost good will towards each other and make it easier to do the hard work of problem resolution. By ignoring the restorative effects of occasional positive connection, you starve yourself of the crucial emotional fuel that enables you to hash out the really difficult matters.
