One out of every three couples struggles with mismatched sexual desire---a formula for marital disaster. When one spouse is sexually dissatisfied and the other is oblivious, unconcerned, or uncaring, sex isn't the only casualty; a sense of emotional connection can also disappear. Helping couples bridge the desire gap can be challenging when one spouse appears unmotivated or lacks empathy. This speech presents a collaborative model for partners to work together to turn around the decline in their sex lives and reignite their emotional connection.
- Explain how to end the vicious cycle of refusing sex which leads to anger, less desire and more refusal.
- Demonstrate coaching both partners about specific ways to alter their approach to increase their partner's empathy and willingness to change.
