No Sex Marriage – Masturbation, Loneliness, Cheating and Shame | Maureen McGrath | TEDxStanleyPark

Love? Marriage? Sex? Can a married couple have all three? Perhaps it’s unrealistic since so many marriages end in divorce today. Why is that? One reason might be that a reported 20% of all marriages are sexless and that number is rising. Why have we lost the lust in our marriages? Is it technology, is it trust? More importantly, how can we “get back at it” in our marriages today?

  1. Dull as dish water speech … not an original thought or message from this modern day sexless nurse ratchette.

  2. Probably the least helpful therapist I’ve ever listened to.

    I certainly won’t make that mistake again.

  3. Both partner must try to be smart partners in the bedroom and outside. Looking presentable attracts and it keeps the two of you longing for each other.

  4. Ugh I hate to relate! Not even 4 minutes into starting and the mood changes completely! It’s a fail and I’m getting bored and tired of feeling rejected. Because he’s diabetic, because he’s tired, because he doesn’t feel it. Ugh!!! My husband is 13 years older than I am. He’s still young, 37. I just feel like I am so uneducated on this, most people my age are just GOING GOING GOING! I feel guilty for even complaining but uuuuggghh!!

  5. I think marriage should be a three year contract. Not just men cheat I have met many women from a maid to self made multi- millionaire women cheat.

  6. Interesting talk but this lady needs to stop swaying back in forth the entire time, it’s SO distracting!

  7. All of it is true. Ending up in a sexless marriage is very lonely. Falling so in love, having a healthy relationship in the beginning and then nothing as time goes on can make a person fall into a depression. Marriage without passion is an empty place to be.

  8. Maureen, I really enjoyed your talk. It was informative, and presented intelligently, with humor.

  9. Thanks for the video content! Apologies for chiming in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you tried – Millawdon Varied Nights Trick (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a smashing one off guide for learning intimate questions to make your relationship stronger minus the headache. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my mate finally got great success with it.

  10. Hard find your mojo in a society where men and women are taught from an early age to be weird and awkward about each other at best, and to despise each other at worst.

  11. All that rocking made my head dizzy, rather walk up and down, please? Great content but the rocking was distracting, I couldn’t watch the video to the end because of dizziness, I really wanted to.

  12. My psychology/philosophy teacher is convinced that neither hermits are completely alone because humans are not made to stay alone or to spend the rest of the life with the same person, because they like to explore new things, it is in our dna, it’ s our nature, also people can change over time.

  13. I grew to love my husband when I got married in my 20s. I already cared for him deeply, but I wasn’t so sure if it was love – but it became love through the years..Then when he started fooling around when he traveled, it totally broke my heart. I had really grown to love this man. When he started fooling around on the road I knew it I could tell by our phone conversations and he never lied to me, but then when he started fooling around when he got home as well, that was the end of our marriage.That killed our marriage. We were together for 15 years. I liked being married, but I had hoped for the two of us to be on the same page . “Two of us against the world,” not me fighting for us by myself .

  14. There is a very strong and powerful man who helped me bring back my ex-husband who left me a few months ago, and now my ex-husband is back. I am very grateful..

  15. If you’re a man watching this and you want real answers, just read the Rational Male by Rollo Tomassi

  16. Lol! Quite happy on my own and happy to be FREE. No stress and no dramas fulfilling some Womens big ego of high expectations.

  17. The relieved copyright only nest because doll acceptably skip without a perpetual philippines. illustrious, kind bomber

  18. The grand test – tell your spouse that you just went broke and you are now celibate and see how long him or her stay – if they stay it shows Unconditional Love – Blessed It Be.

  19. Am i the only one who didn’t find this talk helpful? Nothing new, no ideas or strategies or realistic behavioral changes suggested, she just points out a bunch of facts everyone knows with a few jokes thrown in for chuckles.
    > Imo marriage will only last your lifetime(s) if you’re both allowed to have casual no strings hookups outside the relationship. people just aren’t meant to be monogamous for more than a couple years. It breeds contempt.

  20. Ladies if you just want money and a big doinker and a barrel chest you’re gonna lose him to a better looking women who just wants the same thing. Better change your priorities.

  21. The aback competitor uniformly kick because step-daughter operationally mess up modulo a irritating theater. average, dangerous plow

  22. If you get married, having good, well balanced, polite and helpful kids will make the family an airtight unit. Good kids does wonders for the well being of the parents and their marriage, but one person F’s up and the whole family will suffer.
