4 Ways Bad Sex Negatively Affects Your Relationship

Did you know “bad sex” can happen to good relationships.  

Sure, sex can be pure fun and pleasure. But is important in a healthy relationship.

In the same way good sex can strengthen a relationship by maintaining the "spark", unenjoyable sex can impact a good one.

When a couple fails to pay more attention to their sex life and considers it " no big deal" for a strong and healthy relationship, it can spell disaster. 

So today, in this article, we are going to cover 4 ways bad sex can have a negative effect on your relationship…

Bad sex minimizes communication between you and your partner

People communicate during sex. What they want and what they don't want, how they want it, etc. 

It can bring both partners closer together and create intimacy between them. 

So what happens when problems start to arise in the bedroom? 

One Study revealed a reduction in sexual communication in the bedroom may lead to less general communication. 

Less communication may spell trouble for your relationship. 

When there's less communication, both partners grow further and further apart and this may affect the relationship negatively, or in severe cases, may end the relationship. 

Bad sex can build up frustration

Bad and unsatisfactory sex can result in both parts feeling frustrated and stressed. 

When you're frustrated, it's harder to think rationally. 

You overreact to trivial issues, you can lose your sense of humor, and you can no longer take a joke. 

When this happens, it results in more misunderstandings between you and your partner, which leads to more fights and a strained relationship. 

In addition to bad sex affecting your relationship, it also affects other areas of your life when frustrations are built up. 

Bad sex creates no desire for sex 

Bad sex in a relationship can lower your sex drive. 

Instead of wanting to have a cozy time with your partner, all your desires focus on activities that exclude them.  Sure, it's natural to not want sex every minute of the day… or want to have sex at the same time.

But when you never want to have sex, this could be a problem. 

When the desire to have sex with your partner is no longer there, maybe your constant unsatisfactory sex with your partner might contribute to a decline.

Sex is an important part of a healthy relationship

For some people, sex might be the best way to connect emotionally with their partner.   

And when bad sex creates no desire for sex, it makes it difficult for both partners in a relationship to nurture the essential connection.

When there's no desire to have sex or at least a mismatched desire, couples grow apart, which ultimately leads to the end of the relationship. 

Bad sex kills feelings and romance in your relationship

The same way good sex renews feelings in a relationship, bad sex can suppress it.

Sex connects you and your partner emotionally, when the emotional connection is no longer there, it may be hard for the feelings to keep growing and for the relationship to progress. 

Good sex in a relationship keeps the "fire" burning. 

Bad sex, on the other hand, can quench the "fire" in your relationship. 

With bad sex, you may not feel the need to do the things you love to do with your partner. 

Not spending enough time together like you used to creates a gap between you both, which may further drive you apart and ultimately spell the end of your relationship. 

Final thoughts:

Bad sex can mean different things to a lot of people, the same way good sex does to different people. The bottom line is, when you are not regularly satisfied by your partner in the bedroom, it's just bad sex. 

Although bad sex can end a relationship if proper care isn't taken, but it shouldn't be the sole reason for breaking off a relationship.
