Let’s Talk About SEX Drive In Marriage: Dealing With The Ups and Downs of Drive

In Podcast by Debra Fileta

Let’s talk about sex drive in marriage. Because there are a lot of false expectations out there about what sex in marriage is going to look like.

I know this to be true, because I surveyed over 1,000 singles, and 1,000 married people to get their views on sex and sex drive in marriage. And the EXPECTATIONS of what sex people thought would be like, compared to the REALITY of what sex actually looked like in marriage, were drastically different. (Check out the full survey with the interesting results in my book, Choosing Marriage.)

Our expectations of sex are often so far from reality. And truth be told, struggling with a low or no sex drive in marriage is not something people expect, yet something many are dealing with.

As a single, you can barely control your raging sex drive (check out the Sex Drive and The Single Life: Controlling Your Sex Drive Before it Controls You Podcast Episode Here!), so it’s hard to imagine a day when you might be struggling to “feel it”.

But low sex drive is something that too many people are struggling with in silence. And today, we’re talking about it. Because today’s question comes from a caller who is more than satisfied in her marriage, yet still struggling to desire sex. Her low sex drive is starting to cause stress in their marriage, and she’s not sure what to do.

In today’s episode, I’m joined by my friend, and author of The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex, Sheila Gregoire.

Together, we tackle this important question and talk you through what you can do when you find that you’re dealing with a low sex drive in marriage.
