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?
