No Sex Marriage – Masturbation, Loneliness, Cheating and Shame | Maureen McGrath | TEDxStanleyPark

82870 ratings | 15572038 views
Love? Marriage? Sex? Can a married couple have all three? Perhaps it’s unrealistic since so many marriages end in divorce today. Why is that? One reason might be that a reported 20% of all marriages are sexless and that number is rising. Why have we lost the lust in our marriages? Is it technology, is it trust? More importantly, how can we “get back at it” in our marriages today? Maureen McGrath - nursetalk@hotmail.com - hosts the Sunday Night Sex Show on News Talk 980 CKNW. She is a Registered Nurse, Sex Educator and author of “Sex & Health". This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Double Standard of life: A man is expected to take the time to learn his women’s body and what makes her tick because they are complicated. But women don’t need to take the same time to figure out her man and figure out what makes him tick because apparently we are all simple beings.
Alfred Pardoe (1 day ago)
Maureen McGrath funny because most girls I’ve been with don’t and almost all of my male friends complain that no women know what they are doing....seems both sexes have an issue with making the other tick. It seems women don’t know how to make men tick as much as men don’t know how to make women tick

We know what makes men tick. +Alfred Pardoe

I saw this video years ago, then for a second time today, but something weird I noticed... Why the six second audio replacement edit starting at 17m28s ? (I think there was another one earlier in the video also, but couldn't detect it again, on another quick scan through).. Great video, was just wondering.
Maureen McGrath (3 days ago)
The videographer forgot to put the back up mic on. Of course the mic failed so I had to go and re-record that bit. I said exactly the same thing as I did at the theatre. Thanks for your nice comment. +KiwiCatherineJemma

There are people who sabotage their relationships... Marriage by delibertly making their partners miserable. By being demanding, selfish, hateful , critical of their mates. This puts a wall barrier in the marriage that is a control tool.

Why is she dancing all the time? Disturbing.
Stephan Gruhne (5 days ago)
Huh? I feel like there's missing something. I'm not a native Speaker, so would you explain your Answer? Dance like nobody is watching? Dance at it. Nobody is watching? (Then: dance what for?) You left me confused.
Maureen McGrath (5 days ago)
Dance as if nobody is watching. +Stephan Gruhne

The view count here is amazing and sad, so many of us just can't seem to find satisfaction with our own life. No matter how far you go, no matter where you end up, you can never escape "You" We put people on these pedestals and when they don't add up for us, we move on to the next person to use.

"Why did you marry your wife?" ..."To acquire physical labor..."
Lccl lccl (9 days ago)
Mrs. McGrath, thank you for talking about this difficult subject. I think it's important to say that there ARE some WOMEN who want intimacy and the MEN don't. After I became a mother, the intimacy between my husband and me plummeted... It can cause some serious communication breakdowns and hurt feelings... I am taking notes of your speech!
Lccl lccl (9 days ago)
Yes, because the joke is always that the woman "has a headache", etc and the men comiserate, but NONE of the women in my group of friends has this problem... I honestly don't think they can empathize... they always say, "Oh, you're lucky that he's not asking all the time", but they don't realize that it's a huge disappointment and frustration. I used to try to talk about it with my husband, but after 10 years, and listening to Eckhart Tolle about the human condition, I let it go...
Maureen McGrath (9 days ago)
Indeed, there certainly is desire discrepancy whereby the men lack the desire. Dare I say it is often more devastating for a woman when this occurs. +Lccl lccl

I never needed 'drinks', either 'he' hit the 'spot' or he didn't. It's called being 'selfless' & sometimes it's your gift to that person, what else would it be ??? No choice :D

I always thought "Ted Talks" featured intelligent people. Until now.
vitola1111 (11 days ago)
If two people come into a relationship with a selfish mindset thinking “what is in it for me?” then it’s bound for doom. If both come in with an otherness mindset of “how can I better please my spouse?” it’s going to work out. This selfish prideful culture is the death of marriage. No self sacrifice, just self exaltation and self-worship.
