Would bad sex be enough reason for you to leave a relationship?

After trying new things, books, etc? Would this really be a good reason to get out of a relationship?
Is this really that important and why.. I'd love to hear both sides. I'm very neutral on this.

  • personally, sex isn't a very important part of our relationship. i wouldn't leave because of bad sex. there are other ways to show your affection

  • I think if there is a good emotional connection the sex will at least be fair. The brain is the most important sexual organ.

  • My stbx was ONLY concerned about the sex in the relationship and if he wasn't getting any he found it else where and assumed I was doing the same. Not the case, he was just feeling guilty and playing the blame game.

  • I have left relationships over bad sex but we didn't have that much going on in other areas either. I've also stayed in relationships where there was no sex bc I thought the guy rocked and he was important, not the sex.

  • I do not believe that bad sex would be a good enough reason to leave. It shouldnt be just physical relationship it should be about how you really feel about the person.

  • I have a different is sex....what makes it special is the connection between 2 people who truly love each other
    If it is not happening in your heart then it is not meant to making is an art between 2 people
    again sex is sex if there isn't any mutual feelings

  • YES!! There is no way I could withstand a relationship if I was dreading the bedroom! Good, decent sex is one of my requirements. I could not and I know it, I could not stand a relationship for long if I was resentful in the bedroom. I tend to hold long grudges so sex problems have to be solved or at least shown some improvement. BUT, being married I know that over time sexual performance drops and I'm not about to hold that against my dh. There are other ways to scratch that itch without losing the relationship.

  • No. Communication in a relationship is more important than the sex, especially once you have children. Sex will go through ups and downs - communication lasts an entire relationship. Putting that much stock in sex now will eventually lead to a downturn in the relationship (what happens when you all get older and the sex wanes? Gotta have something left to the relationship to keep it going).

  • No, like everything else in a relationship that takes work to perfect. When you have good communication and openness then you can work on anything. If you can't seem to agree on ANYTHING then I would feel like considering leaving. But only after trying to work on things.
