Punishing a partner for not having sex by being disrespectful, emotionally distant or angry creates a dynamic where saying no to sex becomes imbued with anxiety or even fear of emotional retaliation. Consent is enthusiastic. Agreeing to sex only to avoid punishment is not consent. It is the result of coercion.

Dear Roe: I’ve spoken to him many times, but he reverts to the same behaviour
Sexual difficulties are among the most common difficulties in marriages. Underneath it all, though, is usually a big misunderstanding. There are usually a lot of other reasons that they want to have sex with you. And these reasons are usually a lot more kind and sincere than the ones that first come to your head.
Every night in households across America, as children sleep peacefully in their beds and husbands usually lounge on the couch with a bag of chips and watch television, women are tirelessly working. There are clothes to be ironed, next-day lunches to be made, lists to be written, and doors to be locked. Some men may command these roles, but more often than not, the maternal figure is tending to these responsibilities. As the man moves from the couch to the bed and waits on his lovely lady to join him, she still isn't done. For some women, night cream has to be applied, chin hairs need to be plucked, and ashy knees and elbows need to be lotioned. Finally, after checking on the children and the locked doors yet again, the woman slips into her comfortable bed and heaves a collective sigh of relief because no one needs anything else from her today. She can finally soak in the silence of the house and rest. But before she's even closed her eyes, he's turned onto his side to face her. She knows what he wants , what he needs yes, I said needs. I'm sure I've already outraged women everywhere with those few opening paragraphs.
