Dr. Metz explains the most prevalent sexual problem women face.
The biggest problem that I see in my practice that women seem to be struggling with as being reasonable about their sexual and their relationship expectations. I think much of that is fuelled especially in the last 20 or 30 years by increasingly more focus on simplistic notions of sexuality and sexual intimacy, that it’s very simple, that it’s about attractiveness, that your body drives the whole machine and I think that simplification, or what we in professional terms talk about as a simplification of a complexity of sexuality, is one of the things that is kind of part of our culture now.
We see that in medicine. You have lost desire, we will give you an injection of testosterone or a patch or you are having trouble lubricating, here is a cream or a suppository and so the simple approach to physically dealing with difficulties in the bedroom I think is one of the major problems that I see. When there’s a simple cause and a simple cure, we set people up to really miss the larger human dimension of what we call “good enough sex” and acceptance of each other.
