Understanding the ebb and flow of sex and desire is challenging to most individuals in relationships. Fueled by self-doubt or what seems as confusing messages, people often blame themselves when a partner appears distant or withdrawn. The feelings of insecurities prompt questions like, 'are you okay', 'have I done something wrong' or even more fearful questions like 'is there someone else' or 'do you still love me'. When physical touch, intimate desire and sex ebbs in a relationship the partner experiences abandonment and loss unless there are significant reasons like medical issues or other factors. Many times the ebb and flow is simply a natural process of growth and change in the relationship, understanding and accepting this is the challenge. All of this speaks to the significance of physical touch and its ability to reassure, comfort and maintain an intimate relationship.
