My husband and I haven’t had sex in six months! He says it’s because I’m never in the mood, while I just think he’s never in the mood when I’m in the mood. Can a sex therapist help us work this out?
Mismatched libidos are certainly something that a sex therapist can help you figure out. In fact, it is probably one of the most of the common issues that couples face. Though sexless marriages are common (15 to 20 percent of Americans are believed to be in sexless marriages), lack of sex can destroy your relationship and chip away at your bond. It’s important to address this issue before it becomes larger than life, but the good news is that it sounds like you are both committed to making it work and improving your sexuality.
