Dr Ramani and Silvia Saige look at the factors behind our varying sexual appetites.

A comprehensive new study reveals that a pharmaceutical cure for "female impotence" does not exist. Dr Ramani explains the results. She and Silvia offer solutions for building a healthy sex drive, which leads to discussions of "sexual peak," sex toys, shame, and the differences between male and female arousal.

A listener finds herself in a relationship where the difference in their sex drives sabotages her happiness. Ramani and Silvia wonder: Is she uninterested in all sexual activity, sex with any partner, or sex with her specific partner?

Then, a virgin male listener struggles with his low desire for sex vs. his intense desire to masturbate to porn, raising again the spectre of dehumanized sex and incels. Hear Silvia talk about what it means to be a sexual commodity in an over-sexed age.

IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING with what you feel is a low sex drive, ALWAYS consult your physician first. They can refer you to appropriate specialists, be they therapists or internists, and will screen out more serious physical conditions that might be affecting your libido.

Dr Ramani and Silvia Saige advise listeners in opposite scenarios - one desperate to leave, one hoping to stay. So how are their situations almost identical?

The first listener lost his first real relationship to his partner’s grief and alcoholism. He wants to know how their love can survive the recovery process. Silvia points out some red flags he may be ignoring, and Ramani unpacks the complicated dynamic between alcoholism, grief, and deeper dysfunction.

Then, a listener who has stayed with a borderline abusive partner for financial support analyzes her own situation beautifully. Ramani and Silvia talk about how to build the strength, resources and plan to actually leave, even when family and friends may not be there for you.

It’s a look at narcissistic partners from both sides of the equation - wanting to stay and wanting to go.

Dr Ramani and Silvia Saige are off this week, but new listeners might appreciate this look back on their first episode together.

THIS EPISODE WAS RELEASED ALMOST EXACTLY A YEAR AGO, ON SEPTEMBER 5, 2017. Learn more about Silvia and hear the ladies' on-air chemistry spark for the first time.

If you're new to the podcast, Sexual Disorientation was originally conceived to have rotating guests sit with Dr Ramani on an episode-by-episode basis. But we liked comedian/adult film star Silvia Saige so much, we asked her to stay! We know you'll agree it's proved to be an exceptional decision.

We encourage all listeners to write us, ALWAYS ANONYMOUS, with questions, comments and opinions at: sexualdisorientation@gmail.com

A listener has spent 7 years trying to get over a breakup. Dr Ramani and Silvia Saige talk loneliness – Is it normal? Harmful? How do you break the cycle?

Let us know how YOU have dealt with heartbreak or loneliness. Your story can help others. What held you back? What thoughts or actions helped you move forward, if any? Write us, ALWAYS ANONYMOUS, at: sexualdisorientation@gmail.com 

Dr Ramani defines the boundary between grieving a relationship's end and experiencing dangerous depression. She explores what depression actually is, and how it's treated, especially for those who think therapy can't help.

Silvia and Producer Bill share their own anecdotes about finding the right therapist.

Finally, Ramani explains how the fear of being alone can insidiously erode your health and well-being. But rejecting companionship is no solution either...
