Our sex life is gone

My wife and I used to have a good sex-life before the coronavirus pandemic but it started slowly going downhill after lockdown started. She was obsessed with watching anything she could find connected to the pandemic. She listened to the radio, watched every bit of news on TV and could quote the Covid-19 statistics every day.

At night she’d tell me she doesn’t feel like sex because all she can think about is the people who are dying and those going hungry. Although I understand how she feels and also sympathise with those who are suffering, life must go on. All we can do is try to keep safe and help other people where we can.
