If you’re denying your spouse sex, you’re denying yourself the chance for a rich, happy marriage in and out of the bedroom. Many happy marriages go awry because of little known differences in the way each partner looks at, and reacts to, sex. Stereotypes are simply wrong when it comes to many men and women, yet no one is talking about it so no one knows how to bring the love back.
