Often couples come to therapy struggling with a difference in libido. Women and many men struggle with low libido (it's NOT just a woman's issue). Human beings are hardwired for connection. Connection is as basic of a need as food and shelter.
In this Ted Talk Michelle Weiner-Davis discusses Sex Starved Marriages. She also discusses 3 things people need to do if they are living in a Sex Starved Marriage.
- Understand how you feel connected to your partner, but most of all, become an expert in how your partner feels connected to you.
- If you are with someone desiring more connection, more affection, or more sex don't delude yourself into thinking "it's just sex." Sex is a powerful way to connect and bond with someone you love.
- When you understand how your partner feels connection and love you don't have to understand or agree with it, you just have to DO IT!
