This is according to Robert Epstein, PhD, a San Diego research psychologist and founder/director emeritus of the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies in Beverly, MA,” they explain.

The article also said that a third of male participants in their thirties had not made love the previous year. 21% of women in their thirties reported the same.

“What’s important to note here is not just that you’re not alone if things have cooled down, but that less lovemaking doesn’t necessarily mean less love.,” Ed and Cathy add.

The couple present a paradox from a psychology professor who said that, when love making is good it makes up five percent of a marriage. However, when it is bad, it makes up ninety five percent.
