Sexless Marriage: America's Secret Taboo


If you think men are always ready for sex, think again. Clinical studies show that low desire in men is America’s best kept secret. Sexless marriage is more common than you think, and it seems men are the ones losing interest.

Why are so many spouses losing interest in sex?
According to a recent survey by a popular women’s magazine, sixty percent of the women said they wanted sex more than their husbands. But in a culture where virility is inextricably connected with masculinity, no man wants to broadcast his drop in sexual desire. It’s really hard to imagine a guy telling a friend ” I wish my wife didn’t want sex all the time.”  Additionally, men are unwilling to discuss this issue with their wives or seeking help from therapists.

Watch Michele Wainer-Davis tackle the subject of the “sex-starved wives” in this TED Talk video.
