A SLOW-DOWN in sex as a relationship progresses is nothing new – but have you ever wondered why this happens?
Helen Fisher, a biological anthropologist, told Men’s Health: “That early stage of intense, romantic love drives up the dopamine system, which in turn increases testosterone and strong libido.
“But over time, attachment becomes more and more powerful and this does not necessarily trigger the sex drive.”
Susan Whitbourne, a professor of psychology at the University of Massachusetts added: “Maybe this is desirable.
“If we spent our days in the throes of all-consuming love fires, we’d never get anything accomplished.”
To be fair, Susan has a point – we probably wouldn’t get too far in life if we spent all our hours bonking.
