Bedroom Blues

Losing interest in sex when you've been in a relationship for awhile, and even if you haven't, can be frustrating and even embarrassing. You want to experience your partner intimately and of course, your partner does too! If you've lost interest in sex with your partner, how can you find out what is behind it? What can you and your partner do?

A lackluster libido can cause some serious tension between you and your partner. He wants it; you don't. He always initiates; you would rather watch Desperate Housewives.

It can get frustrating -- on both sides. Our SheKnows Love & Sex experts, Dan Baritchi and Jennifer Hunt of, talked to some insiders to answer the question: Why have I lost interest in sex, and what can my partner and I do to fix it?

My husband and I have been married 45+ years and in all those years we only had once. He told me was disgusting, pointless, meaningless, messy, smelly and wish's to never have it again. he can't understand why two people would want to something so gross to each other. I was instructed to leave him alone and never speak to him again. He also volunteered to work the midnight shift so he didn't have to sleep or be near me. The only time we say some thing to each other is when we go to the tax person, and that is nothing more than Hi or BYE.
