Most women wish that their partners would pipe it down slightly, but there are many other women who wish that their partners would just approach them for sex, or any form of physical contact once in a while.

We want sex for the intimacy that goes with it. If we’re not getting any from the one we love, it can be extremely difficult. If all your friends are complaining about their partners who can’t leave them alone, how are you going to explain to them that yours don’t want you at all?
