A consultant obstetrician and gynecologist, Eric Okunna, has said the importance of healthy s*x life cannot be undermined in marriage.
According to NAN, the doctor sampled the views of locals in Awka, Anambra on matters of family and s*x.
He said respondents argued that couples shouldn’t deny each other s*x, especially by the woman to her husband.
Okunna said others argued that the man is the family head and his feelings “shouldn’t be toyed with.”
He said good s*x cements a relationship between the two people involved in a filial relationship.
He also said continuous demand for s*x by the man “can drive the wife crazy” and lead to torture for the man.
Okunna said it is vital to treat marriage as hallowed, therefore, women should not torture their husbands by denial.
The consultant added that s*x should not be used as a tool for revenge in case of any misgiving between the couple.
“S*x relationship on itself is a medication to calm the body down of so many life challenges like stress, emotional sickness and is a good exercise to keep the body relaxed and fit,” Okunna said.
“It is a natural occurrence to have disagreement between people in a relationship and marriage is no exception. There is no justification for any of the couples to use s*x as torture to resolve their differences.
“Instead, s*x should be a tool used to resolve any brewed issues between couples because it could be used to relax tensed nerves rather than a tool for disintegration.
“S*x torture or denial in marriage is a negative manner to handle marriage challenges because it could lead to home breakup.”
According to the doctor, s*x life should be moderate so partners are satisfied anytime the need arises to avoid boredom.
