Sexless Marriage

I saw an article in a newspaper about a happily married couple who claim that don't have sex!

They say that they have one 4 year old son.    They also say that they  fear if they  have a bit of hanky panky  that their son might hear them.   The couple goes on to say that they work hard and too tired to have sex.  But they claim that they are always snogging and cuddling  each other and neither of them are cheated with each other and according to them that they are extremely happy.

I think they were in their thirties or forties.

They were two more happily married couples in Newspaper who  were older and were saying that they were in love but they don't have sex!

I'm absolutely gobsmacked  image

Can a marriage like that really work. If the people were in their nineties yes I could understand it.

  • A marriage will work if both parties are happy with the arrangements..........

    marriages fail where both parties want different things and a compromise can't be met.......

    ^ this.

    There are plenty of elderly married couples in their 80s and 90s. I'm pretty sure those marriages are sexless but they aren't all rushing to get divorced.

    You need to engage your brain before posting sometimes Karen.

  • As Seren says, as long as both parties are happy with the arrangement, why not?

    People have different levels of interest in sex - put two who aren't very interested together, and they could be perfectly happy.

    Difficulties arise when people have different levels of sex drive.

  • Just because you don't do it at the same time and location doesn't mean there's no sex.

  • So people can't have marriages to work how they want and they are digusting if they have sex in a way not approved by Karen. Time to quit?

  • But we know Karen is into dogging so we know he is getting plenty

    Yes

  • Was that a small orgasm?

  • There are small orgasms? I've been trying too hard.

    The Answer is NO the marriage  will not last and won't work!

    Depends if that marriage was just the confirmation of a mutual fuck-fest.

    If it was based on something greater than hormonial bodily functions then if survives.

    LMAO - I just read this thread and thought that this has to be one of the strangest health and injury topics I have ever seen

     

  • A chap at work declared that he was well into tantric sex..... the f***er is creepy enough as he is image Now we know that little nugget  imageimage

  • Let's face it most people that talk about their sex lives at work are creepy. 

    What's known can never be unknown - don't ask, don't tell, unless you want your colleagues to imagine you shagging sheep (or whatever floats your boat) next time you're giving a presentation.

    I had an ex boss who left her husband and got herself a toyboy. She insisted on telling me about it all through what was (thankfully) my leaving lunch. It was all I could do not to stick my fingers in my ears and sing, "Lalalalalalala!!!!!" 

  • These couples say they are happy without sex - but what if they were asked independently? Not so sure the answers would remain the same.

    Not that I necessarily want to think about it but couples in their eighties and nineties probably are at it too!

  • Tantric sex? Is that the one where you spend hours fucking and only come once?

    Seems inefficient to me.

    Me too.

    Yes...but for a really long time.

    Apparently.

  • I know of two marriages that were very successful without sex.  One couple were together from their early twenties until he died in his sixties and they had never once had sex and prefered not to sleep in the same room.  However they got on like a house on fire and unless you knew them well you would have no idea of the lack of activity upstairs.

    The other couple I don't know as well.  They appear to be happy but who knows what goes on behind closed doors?

  • Strangely filibusting came up on pointless yesterday!!

    This thread should be in "Clubhouse" but this forum's not just about running - that would be boring. As would llife...

    I thought it was sex without actual contact with each other; but looking it up on good 'ol Wikipedia.... (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neotantra)

    "Tantric sexual methods may be practiced solo, in partnership, or in the sacred rituals of groups. The specifics of these methods are often kept secret, and passed from practitioners to students in an oral tradition. It must be remembered that genuine tantric spiritual practice is merely one aspect of a comprehensive spiritual path of meditation—and that the sexual and erotic aspects of tantra cannot be authentically engaged in without adequate preparation and discipline.

    In sum, neotantric sexuality is just one dimension of a spiritual path that is devoted and dedicated to the challenge of becoming aware, in every moment of our embodied lives, of the supreme flow of the sacred lifeforce itself—the sacred unity of love"

    Well that clears that up then image 

    He is even more creepy now image image image

     

  • Ditch him, Karen!

  •  "or in the sacred rituals of groups" 

    So just an excuse for swinging then!!!!

  • "passed from practitioners to students in an oral tradition."

     

    I'll bet it is. "Today's lesson consists of you giving me a blowjob. Sting."

  • literatinliteratin ✭✭✭

    dammit, was just about to do the 'oral tradition' joke.

  • I was taken by the, "practiced solo" bit; saying I am off for a bit of solo, "genuine tantric spiritual practice" sounds like you are doing something meaningful.

    But I have always called it something else

  • And, "adequate preparation and discipline"; does that mean Razzle v. Penthouse? And remembering the tissues....
