This is something to seriously consider before marriage - do you really want to place yourself, structurally, as the sole supplier of intimacy for the remainder of your life - to this person? This whole trend of men and women whining about partners not giving sex is almost laughable. learn to control your damn hormones; learn self control.If you don't want to - will you be willing to drop the moral position that one's partner has to be sexually true if you turn said partner away over the long haul? Sex is fleeting, entirely too overemphasized, should never ever be 'expected' nor 'obligated,' and truly has absolutely nothing to do with happiness. I disagree completely, or perhaps I'm incorrect and just despise the outdated social construct called 'marriage contract,' - but here's my take on this...And it spares them the sexual negotiation with a partner that can feel exhausting. While women typically respond best to a slow sexual approach, the truth is, sometimes men want to just “get after it” when they feel the urge.Even when their partner wants sex more than they do, a man might withhold sex out of an unconscious need for the autonomy of sexual aloneness. With a body full of testosterone, they are sexual kindling to the sexual stimuli all around, and it can be discouraging when they have a female partner who cannot fathom what it feels like to ignite instantaneously.Narcissism can also be a factor — it may cause a man to feel deeply disappointed in the normal and inevitable physical changes in his partner, which are threatening his own sense of mortality. Regardless of whether he feels desire, if a man has problems getting or keeping an erection, or if he has trouble lasting a fair time during intercourse, he may hesitate to initiate. Whether to escape the vulnerability of being the initiator or simply to take a break from depending on another to meet their sexual needs, some men prefer masturbating over partnered sex.Unfortunately, women can misinterpret these problems as attraction problems and become critical or reactive, which just complicates the dynamic further. Often they use porn because it’s easy, it’s exciting, and it’s efficient.When Jenny's husband of several years barely ever initiated sex, she started to believe he wasn’t attracted to her anymore.He claimed he was, but he still never seemed to make a move.
I feel like the assumption that men should want sex all the time, otherwise something’s wrong, would be readily labeled as sexist if applied to the other gender – so why suggest that at all?
They cannot unilaterally insist on sexual fidelity while simultaneously not fulfilling their own responsibilities to be the intimate supplier.
You can't have all the rights while abdicating responsibilities. Where is this elusive 'rulebook' that infers sex is obligated? Sex being owed by or to anyone is ridiculous and based on neanderthal mindsets and societal expectations (both of which I personally love defying).
And when a man hears his partner’s complaint of “all you want is sex,” it can feel like male-bashing — when the truth is, while he does desperately want sex and is physiologically programmed to want sex, he wants sex with her specifically, his partner, to express both desire and love.
Occasionally, men need reciprocity of pure lust: “You want it, so I want it! Especially when there is a change in a man’s desire without apparent good reason, he might be having an affair.

Now, if one expects sexual fidelity within the context of marriage vows, then, structurally speaking, they have placed themselves in the role of being the sole supplier of sexual intimacy for their partner.
