Libido Differences Between Partners

Many studies show that generally a man’s sex drive is much stronger than a woman’s sex drive and less complicated. Men are aroused just thinking about sex, but a woman’s arousal involves many factors such as open communication, attitudes, social and cultural beliefs, feeling desired, self-image, and more. Women value an emotional connection to ignite sexual desire. Men also want intimacy and connection, but they frequently empathize this expression through sex.

Physiological factors can also affect libidos and are usually treated successfully. Since men’s sexual desire is tied more closely to biology, a low sexual drive and erection difficulties can be treated with drugs. Women do not usually respond in kind to these types of medications. Often emotional issues like depression, stress, and anxiety play a role in women and in women’s shrinking libido.

If you are struggling with low sexual desire, female or male sexuality issues, female or male hot spots, limited intimacy or other issues, contact Dr. Elsa Orlandini, a certified sex therapist. Dr. Orlandini will provide private sexual education consultations that can help you resolve your sexual problems.
