Sexuality

Good morning. Lots of people have sex very frequently when in a new relationship or when entering different periods in their life. 

However, the frequency at which you are having sex seems to be concerning you? Is that because it is wit multiple different partners? Or because you are constantly thinking about sex? And chasing it?

If you wish to stop having (and wanting) sex so often, try to be aware of how you are feeling and what you are using the sex to avoid. This is usually what is happening when we start engaging in a behaviour more compulsively. Then try and address that emotion or issue, or ideally both. 

Othewise see a therapist to try and guide you through the process. I am contactable on despina@drlearmonth.com.
