  5. Title: Why women must learn to say yes in the bedroom, says leading female therapist

    Author: Dr Pam Spurr

    By taking the feminist perspective and viewing sex as a 'me' rather than 'we' you are not thinking about the interest of your relationship. I agree with the author, by denying your partner of sex you are causing your relationship to dwindle. In the article the author refers to three women who's relationships had taken a turn due to the lack of sex they were having with their partners. Sex is a joint effort like everything else in your relationship and should be maintained. I for one know what it is like to have a partner who is emotionally and physically withdrawn from the relationship. I concur with the author.
