A COUPLE going through a sexual rut during lockdown have been given a sneak preview of married life.
Martin Bishop and Emma Bradford are experiencing the matrimonial life they have often dreamed of as their desire for intercourse with each other has completely vanished.
Bishop said: “Just like a real married couple we had the honeymoon period where we’d go at it like rabbits in every room, but by the third day of lockdown the novelty had worn off.
“Also it’s difficult to keep the magic alive when you think your partner might have brought a deadly respiratory disease back with them from the shops.”
Bradford said: “My married friends told me it’s common for sex drives to dry up over time, only it usually takes a few years not a few hours.
“But I’m choosing to look at this in a positive light – Martin and I are so well matched that we’re already way ahead of the curve. The abstinent, joyless curve of a shagless marriage.”
