A recent survey done by Ipsos commissioned by Global News revealed that Canadians are dissatisfied with their sex and romantic lives. A whopping 41%! Brrr….This survey was done in December a rather frigid month when couples should be getting beneath the covers!

The good news was that 59% felt their romantic and sex lives were good.

Why the big chill Canada? A frozen tundra. What’s going on in the dark, dead bedrooms of the Great White North? Where has the romance gone?

And what about that sex? All talk, no action? No talk, a little action? Are Canadians too busy? Bored? Too pre-occupied? Spend more time looking at your screens than you do your partner? Medical issues playing a role?

What does it take to make a good marriage/relationship and a great sex life?

My intimacy recipe has 4 ingredients:

  1. Emotional closeness or intimacy. Knowing your spouse on the deepest level. Empathy. Listen to prevent judgment.
  2. Physical closeness or touch, caress, massage, eye to eye contact.
  3. Play. Common interests like skiing, hiking, tennis, golf, cards, cooking, dancing are bonding.
  4. Sexual Closeness which can be summed up with feelings, right amount of frequency 4U2 & fantasies. Shared.

What role does our chronic busyness, the increased opportunity to cheat, the internet & free porn have to do with how satisfied Canadians are with their sex lives?
