Sexual Desire Discrepancy

When we talk sex and about sexual desire discrepancy, we always take it for granted men want sex more often than women.

However, according to various studies there are lots of men actually wanting less sex than women. First, it was thought the figure was about 25%, but the latest studies indicate it is closer to or more than 30% in some instances.

This means about one third of the male population have lower libido than women and they need less sex!

In any relationship it is of upmost importance for the sexual relationship to be thriving. To achieve it the desire should be in a perfect balance.

There are not many studies available to verify the direct consequences of sexual discrepancy. One can easily imagine what it can do for a person who is required to have sex often against his/her will. On the other end of the scale is a person who does not get what he/she wants.

This may lead to sleep disorders, anxiety, cheating and finally a possible end of the relationship. It is not enough to simply say: ‘sex is of no importance’, ‘there are more important things in the life than sex’, as it can ruin an otherwise perfect marriage.

Perhaps, we should take more care while selecting our partners. It is worthwhile to wait an extra year or two in order to get a person we are satisfied with in all aspects.

No matter how we go about it, there is still a possibility the sex drive will change during our relationship. Especially in monogamous relationships men tend to have low libido after a while.

Women, on the other hand, may experience serious changes in their hormonal levels especially during pregnancy and child birth. Prolactin, a hormone which aids milk production, in higher levels, is a well known sex drive killer.
