No sex or relationship question is too embarrassing because it’s time to ask EmpowHer’s sexuality expert – Dr. Marty Klein, anything.
An anonymous woman on EmpowHer writes in to ask Dr. Klein, “My husband has no sex drive. When we have sex, it’s mechanical instead of the glorious lovemaking I would like to give him. Dr. Klein, should we see a doctor?”
Dr. Marty Klein:
It’s always disappointing when two people in a couple have a different vision of what kind of a sexual relationship they are going to have, and sometimes what that couple needs is to talk frankly about “Okay, why do you want sex so much less than I do?” And if you can get the other person to answer honestly, sometimes you can fix the problem yourself, assuming that it’s fixable at all.
Sometimes men have low desire because they are anxious about their erections, and they are afraid to get started because they are afraid that they are going to fail miserably--their expression, not mine, by the way.
