It can be seen as the other partner’s sexual inappropriateness.
When looked at a little more deeply, “inappropriateness” can have different definitions according to each partner, and how each partner’s family might have defined it (and where each partner learned what inappropriate meant).
As definitions reveal each partner’s belief-systems, we can notice that it might appear the couple are jointly engaged in acting out the other’s dislikes (Partner A might not like sexual promiscuity, and Partner B acted it out. Partner B might not like frigidity and partner A acted it out).
Negotating mutual changes in behaviour can be helpful, each partner taking back their projected fear, and the relationship ends up not needing to act out split-off defences.Contact Dean today…
