A woman's sex drive begins to plummet once she is in a secure relationship, according to research.

Researchers from Germany found that four years into a relationship, less than half of 30-year-old women wanted regular sex.

Conversely, the team found a man's libido remained the same regardless of how long he had been in a relationship.

Then give them irregular sex, right?

Gee, just think of all the married guys who will be lining up to argue with this, if this thread goes into the hundreds, we might get two or three.

The old adage: women have everything to worry about until they get married, man have nothing to worry about until they get married, is true.

That is kind of like Hillary realizing men and women are different. They needed a study to figure this out. Why didn’t they just call about 10 married men. They would have been a big enough sample to know the ultimate answer.

Another way to put it, an Optimist is a single guy looking forward to marriage. A pessimist is the married optimist.

Try buying the wife roses every month, better yet send them to her at her job. It worked for me when I had still had a sex drive. Now on Medicare, I can now use the flower money for doctor visits.

I agree 100%. Jewelry works too, but not like flowers. There's something about spending big money on something as useless as flowers that keeps a woman going, especially if you send them to her job.

She instantly becomes the envy of the office, the center of attention. I can't tell you what it does to the other husbands that evening, but I know what it does for me....

From personal experience, age has no bearing on it either. My buddy is coming over for lunch tomorrow. He lives in Sac. My son goes to Sac State.

I grew chicken of the other men. Cluck ... Cluck ... am Hen Pecked. Wife works in a nearly total female environment. Two or three men on her floor. I do send her to the office with my cooking but she has strict instructions to tell the ladies she works with, that she was the cook. Sent flowers a few times but ladies talk to one another and then go home to their husbands and talk some more. I was starting to get a reputation that the ladies’ husbands found offensive. Was mentioned a few time and for a few times I blew the conversations off. There are nearly fifty women working on that floor and I have no desire to fend off fifty guys out for blood. Now on a good day would have once considered it but with age come wisdom enough to hopefully keep one alive for another day and another load of laundry and wash the dishes.

Check those birth control pills, they can really interfere with a woman’s sex drive.

That study is either a load of doo-doo... Or I am abby-normal and my husband is lucky.

First love at age 13 (1972). Started dating (again) New Year’s 1976. Married 1979. My heart still jumps into my throat when I hear his voice.
