A myth busting article about how women are not always the cause of a sexless relationship. The author is a practicing OB-GYN and she shares her experience of being in a sexless relationship because of her male partner's lack of sexual interest/desire. Our societal and cultural programming perpetuates the myth that women usually have a lower libido than their male partners and if a relationship is in duress due to mismatched desire, it must be the woman who is less interested in sex than the man. It is very common for men to have a lower libido than women. However, women are more likely to be quiet if they want more sex than their partner because of the societal stereotypes surrounding female sexuality. The truth is that men and women are equally susceptible to low sexual desire which could be caused by a myriad of factors.
