Why Is 'The Desire' Dwindling?

Not willing?
There is a remarkable decrease among men having no desire to have sex with their partners. The number has gone down by 40 per cent as compared with men ten years ago.

The rise in Internet pornography stress and anxiety are responsible for the new trend.

Twenty years ago, pornography was something you had to search out and buy. Now it's on every home computer, and more and more men are ruining their sex lives as a result. Because men can meet their desires without their wife, the actual desire for making love is going down.

Extreme emotional states, such as anxiety affect men's libido very negatively. Huge numbers of men have lost their jobs, and many more are worried about losing theirs. Some have to more than what men worked ten years back. They go back home with stress hormones racing through their bodies and therefore just can't feel aroused.

Men enjoy something new. A daily routine may make them feel bored and not willing to get engaged in the act of lovemaking. Their partners should make an effort to add some apice. In 99 per cent households, wives are also working and are tired after coming back home. So there is no desire from either sides.

Michele Weiner Davis, author of The Sex Starved Wife pointed out that as a society, we've perpetuated this myth about the ever-turned-on-male. "But all my research suggests that the differences between the genders aren't as great as we've been led to believe, all these years."
