Every Thursday I post a survey on marriage and sex issues (see below if you would like to get notice on these). A couple of months ago the question was “What Is Most Lacking in Your Marriage?”
We all know what the men said – sex, sex, and more sex! Yes, that was the most listed thing that was lacking – with 66% choosing it. However, the stereotype ends there. The second most listed item, chosen by 54%, was romance. This was followed by 47% saying they want more time together, and 44% saying their marriage needs more non-sexual touch.
Ladies, this is men saying they want more romance, time together, and more non-sexual touch! I know you are thinking these men must be an anomaly, but the fact that two-thirds said they want more sex does suggest these are normal men.
I also asked how important various things are, with one being most important, and sixteen least important. The chart below is the average for men taking the survey:
Sex was number three, after communication and time together.
So is your husband an outlier, or would he rate these things about the same? You might be surprised. Apparently, most men want more than sex from their wife – how encouraging!
