I was recently interviewed for an article that was published in the Health magazine as well as MSN. com. The topic was-what happens when a woman craves more sex than the man in a relationship. It was a fulfilling experience for me to shed light on a very common misconception that in a couple with mismatched desire, it's almost always the man who has the higher libido. The truth is that it is very common for women to crave sex more than men. In a situation of mismatched desire, the partner with the higher libido is likely to experience feelings of rejection, sexual frustration & low self-esteem. The partner with the lower desire is likely to experience anxiety, guilt & pressure. The causes for mismatched desire could be physical or relational. I also shared a few helpful tips for couples struggling with mismatched desire and how they can bridge the gap. If you are experiencing a similar issue in your relationship, I am sharing the links to the article in the hopes of providing some support & relief. If you are unable to tackle this issue on your own, sex therapy might help.
