Low-Sex and Sexless Couples

How much sex is too much, and how much is not enough?

This workshop recording will uncover where lack of desire originates in sexless and low-sex couples and how to treat desire discrepancy using contemporary interventions and treatment models.

Through real case studies, we’ll focus on three areas that are often at the root of low- or no-sex marriages—pleasure resistance, pleasure avoidance, and pleasure rejection—and the most effective strategies to help couples achieve sexual empathy and long-term erotic recovery.
