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.
