Guilt Sex

Definition - What does Guilt Sex mean?

Guilt sex is sex done out of guilt. It is more common among women than men. The guilt often stems from feelings of inadequacy as a sex partner. The guilty party may feel that they do not desire sex enough, and do not give in enough to their partner's advances.

Kinkly explains Guilt Sex

There are opposing arguments about guilt sex. One contends that sex – any sex – is good for a relationship. According to that theory, guilt sex can nourish one's relationship and strengthen the bond between partners. The other sees guilt sex as a form of coercion. It is not the best foundation of a healthy relationship. How one sees guilt sex depends on the individual. If guilt sex makes any of the partners feel bad, it is better to seek a therapist's help and have sex only when both partners are in the mood.
