"She's not interested in sex"

The Huffington Post recently published a post titled '6 Things Men Complain About In Marriage Counseling'.  Some of them struck an immediate chord with me ("YESSSS!) so I thought I'd share some of them here, and then give you my 2¢ worth afterwards. If you want to read the whole article (and you should) you can find it here.
She's not interested in sex.  
Sex may not be as hot and heavy as it used to be, but for most couples, it still needs to be a priority. Neuman said that men often complain that they're starting to feel more like roommates than spouses -- their wives just don't seem interested in sex anymore."The biggest complaint in the intimacy department for men is not about how satisfying sex is with their wives, but that they feel there's simply not enough," he said.The solution doesn't rest squarely on wives' shoulders, said Neuman; husbands need to work on fostering intimacy by lending their wives some support outside the bedroom."Research shows that when men split the duties of household chores and child-rearing, they have more sex," he said. "Couples need to talk about what will make both of them happier -- what each need in order to create a more intimate relationship."
I love how these types of articles always still manage to turn it back on the men. Sure, if you're still acting like it's 1955 then you're gonna be disappointed when you find your wife isn't greeting you at the door with a cold beer and slippers when you come home from work (and a sexy whisper in your ear about how you can do her doggy style after she's put the kids to bed and you've enjoyed the dinner she's just prepared for you). Even as a kid reading Playboy I never believed married life was gonna be like that. It's 2015 and men are pretty evolved now. The split on household chores might not be 50/50 but we do our share (and it might be more if women didn't micromanage the way we do them).

If I seriously thought doing more chores would get me more sex I'd be cleaning and vacuuming EVERY day, trust me!
