Rejection of sex regularly can also lead men to look for sex outside a relationship. Though sexual rejection is rarely spoken about, it is something that affects men adversely. And there is data to prove it. Last month, it was reported that Sarah Hunter Murray, a relationship therapist with the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, had conducted a study to find out how sexual rejection affected men. Murray interviewed men who were in relationships for an average of 14 years. So depriving someone of this necessity can surely have its effects.
