Lack of enthusiasm is the number one reason that couples stop having s3x – and cheating is way down on the list
Whether it’s busy work schedules, or the exhaustion of parenting, keeping the fire alive in a relationship can be challenging.
And now scientists have revealed the real passion killers – and cheating is not the top of the list.
Psychologists delved into the s3x lives of hundreds of volunteers to discover why their s3x-lives are dwindling.
At the top of the list was a “lack of enthusiasm”, according to the Mail on Sunday.
This was followed by a lack of time and space, with couples reporting feeling “oppressed” by their other halves, the journal of Evolutionary Psychology states.
The third biggest mood killer was a hectic work schedule, and then perhaps the most offensive “bad s3x.”

Surprisingly, infidelity fell fifth on the list alongside abuse from a partner.
Professor Meneleos Apostolou from the University of Nicosia, Cyprus, who conducted the survey, said it was important to identify why s3x lives were waning.
Speaking to MOS he said: “Difficulties in keeping an intimate relationship could potentially cause considerable emotional pain to people.
“Identifying these difficulties is the first step toward addressing them and improving people’s emotional wellbeing.”
