A relationship without sex could mean partners get a chance to bond in other ways such as talking and caring for each other. To some people it might mean trouble in paradise leading to “you don’t love me anymore” or “you don’t find me attractive”.
If you and your partner have sexual intercourse less than 10 times in a year, you are in a sexless relationship, according to Newsweek magazine. 702/CapeTalk presenter Redi Tlhabi spoke to Dr Eve about sexless relationships.

@RediTlhabi what about marriages? Lack of sex destroys marriages. There's no such thing as sexless relationship. intimacy improves— Isaac Mukwevho (@IsaacMukwevho) April 24, 2015
@RediTlhabi -Hubby is a compulsive cleaner&I'm relaxed that way.When he's in that mode I don't like him&that results in no sex. I just can't— Hlengiwe (@Freshfacedcosmy) April 24, 2015
