Although it is natural and normal for women’s libido to ebb and flow, male-dominated medical science often ignores this fact and leaves women and their partners without the knowledge to deal with this natural variation. Women’s arousal cycles take longer than men’s, are more variable and have more connection to psychological, emotional and environmental factors such as feelings of safety and the emotional affection. Working with a sex coach who understands these factors and doesn’t view them through a male-dominated schema can help women understand and navigate their own libido cycles and lead to a more satisfying and comfortable experience for women and their partners.
- Women need to be presented with safety and affection before they open up in an intimate manner.
- Female libido is a lot different from men, and the process in which women become aroused is a lot more complex.
- Many women find themselves in situations where they move forward with sexual practices when they are not fully aroused due to pressure.
“In this tender place where we both needed each other’s support and love, our mutual silence tore us apart through shame, resentment and fear.”
