Our expert says:
Your question addresses a very common sexual problem called 'disparity of desire'. Testosterone is the hormone that causes sexual drive (libido) and because men have more testosterone than women, they usually want to have sex about 3 times more often. This is perfectly normal. It is very important to discuss your sexual needs with each other. Enjoy a lot of physical cuddling and touch that does not necessarily end with intercourse. Women are turned off if they feel that every touch must lead to 'full on' sex. You might consider discussing masturbation (alone or together). Ask her how you can 'be' more with her; you are not a mind reader! This can help facilitate communication.
