Sex has a strong influence on many aspects of well-being: it is one of our most basic physiological needs. Sex feeds our identity and is a core element of our social life. But millions of people spend at least some of their adulthood not having sex. This sexual avoidance can result in emotional distress, shame and low self-esteem — both for the individual who avoids sex and for the partner who is rejected. As a researcher of human behavior who is fascinated by how sex and gender interact, I have found that sexual avoidance influences multiple aspects of our well-being.

More Adults Than You Think Are Avoiding Having Sex. Here's Why
Sex is one of the most intimate expressions of love for married couples. So what happens when one partner constantly says no to sex? She laments how her husband uses sex as a bargaining chip, obliging her to do it if she asks him for certain favours. Even if they are willing to sort other problems in their marriage, she no longer knows how to fix this particular issue.
The law in England and Wales recognises that each sexual encounter and activity requires separate consent and that a person has the right to withdraw or refuse consent at any time for any or no reason, and this applies equally to all persons and regardless of the relationship between them. It was not always like this. As recently as , the law of rape did not apply to married couples in England and Wales — because it was assumed that the wife gave lifelong consent to any and all sexual activity with her husband on her wedding day. This was a relic of the archaic patriarchal practice by which marriage was in effect the transfer of ownership of a woman from her father to her husband — a practice that has now thankfully been firmly set aside in England and Wales. However, the idea that a man can have ownership of a woman lingers on in the prostitution relationship, where the punter almost always a man pays for sexual access to another person typically a woman or girl.
