Jo and Ben Bulpett have four children under seven. David Cook and Heron Nava have been partners for 32 years. Though still very much in love, David’s interest in sex has waned, whereas Heron is as keen as ever. How do they cope with such different expectations? Tammy and Danny Rich have been married for 18 years, but their relationship is under increasing strain as their expectations seem to increasingly diverge. Despite couple counseling, Tammy decides to move out. Results from Britain's National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles adds context to these couple's struggles.
