It wasn't sex therapy, though. The sex was really the only thing in our relationship that was working at the time.
I'd still recommend it. Never underestimate the value of therapy.

There are a lot of things that can affect your sex life in a relationship, but without knowing what else may have changed, we can't be of too much help. I will say that I recently noticed the error of my own ways in getting too comfortable in my relationship with BlasphemousGirl, and through a lot of talking and fixing the errors in my ways, things have gotten a lot better than they have been in a very long time.

My personal opinion/experience with counseling is that its a really good thing. A couple years ago I had to see a therapist to for an ADHD diagnosis. I had never been to one before nor thought that I would ever. I was suprised at how great it fealt to just talk to someone who wasn't judging you. Furthermore, it really cleared up a lot of things for me in my life that I was always confused about or felt like I was failing at. They have the professional experience and knowledge that enables them to recognize when certain things are being caused by legitimate issues rather than assuming that everything going wrong is your fault because you don't try hard enough or whatever. For example, I always thought that I was not very smart and was too lazy to ever accomplish anything, and so did other people, but after seeing the therapists, I learned that most of my biggest downfalls were attributes of having ADHD my whole life and never treating it. I also learned that many of my strengths are also attributes of my ADHD .
Seeing a counselor will deffinitely help you guys by helping you realize the things that are right infront of you but just can't see. I feel like it will also help you both see each others' point of view in a new light, and respect it more. I hope you guys give it a try and figure things out.
