problems that can kill your sexual relationship Wavebreak Media/Thinkstock

Have you and your partner been having issues in the bedroom? Does one or the other have a low sex drive and it’s killing your relationship?

It doesn’t have to be this way. You just need to identify the problem and then fix it.

Here’s how.

1. The Killer – Internet Porn Addiction.
Research has proven that men who watch online porn on a regular basis can create the same buzz as gambling, drugs, or any other kind of addiction.

Once he’s hooked, he no longer needs a human sexual partner, he can masturbate his needs away in front of the computer while his partner lies sleeping in the next room.

There’s no way she can compete with internet porn unless she can transform herself into a new woman every night with novel ideas that are next to impossible.

The Fix.
An online porn addict must quit cold turkey before he can see his way clear back into the bedroom. If he needs help to break the habit, convince him to seek counseling and/or attend a Sex Addict Anonymous (SAA) meeting.

2. The Killer - Vibrator Overuse.
Sex is a healthy sport and having a vibrator or two in your bedroom drawer can provide excellent stimulation when you’re a single woman. It can also be a great way to incorporate more excitement when you’re with somebody.

But women often receive more intense orgasms with hand-held vibrating toys because 1) It creates continuous pleasure (as long as the batteries are charged); 2) A women can discover her pleasure points much easier by masturbating than attempting to communicate the right spot to her partner.

Impatience and frustration can be a real libido killer for both parties.

The Fix.
Try a vibrator detox for a week. Hold off on any other stimulation other than with your partner and see what happens. The next time you have sex with your man, communicate your needs and help him find your pleasure points. You may be surprised with the results.

3. The Killer - Erectile Dysfunction (ED).
Older men often suffer from ED because they take medications for high blood pressure, depression or other drugs that brings the blood flow down. Younger men can also suffer from ED from overuse of online porn.
