Women more likely to lose interest in sex than men — Study

Women are more than twice as likely as men to lack interest in sex when living with a partner, a study of British sexual attitudes suggests.

It found that while men and women lost passion with age, women were often left cold by longer relationships.

Overall, poor health and a lack of emotional closeness affected both men’s and women’s desire for sex.

The findings are based on the experiences of nearly 5,000 men and 6,700 women, published in  BMJ Open.

The UK researchers said problems of sexual desire should be treated by looking at the whole person, rather than simply resorting to drugs. ‘Pain and misery’

Relate sex therapist Ammanda Major said losing interest in sex wasn’t necessarily abnormal, and there were many different reasons why men’s and women’s needs changed.

“For some, it is a natural and normal place to be, but for others it causes pain and misery,” she said.

In total, 15% of men and 34% of women surveyed said they had lost interest in sex for three months or more in the previous year.

For men, this lack of interest was highest at the ages of 35-44 while for women it peaked between 55 and 64.

But the researchers, from the University of Southampton and University College London, said there was no evidence that the menopause was a factor for women.

However, they did find that having young children at home was a particular turn-off for women.

Poor physical and mental health, poor communication and a lack of emotional connection during sex were the main reasons why men and women lost interest. Five tips to rekindling interest in sex

  • Start talking about the issue early on rather than leaving it to fester – ignoring it can lead to other problems and make you feel resentful. If that doesn’t work, confront the reason why you don’t want to talk about it
  • Explore other forms of intimacy such as holding hands, talking gently to each other, cuddling and stroking rather than full-on sex
  • Feeling as if you are not being heard is a barrier to sex – so make your partner feel respected and important
  • Get some additional support by going to see a sex therapist, relationship counsellor or your GP
  • Relax – many relationships work very well when they are non-sexual, if it’s an outcome that is reached jointly

In the National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles in Britain, those who found it “always easy to talk about sex” with their partner were less likely to say they lacked interest.

However, those whose partner had had sexual difficulties, and those who were less happy in their relationship, were more likely to say they had lost interest in sex at some stage, the researchers said.

Among women, the study found that “not sharing the same level of sexual interest with a partner, and not sharing the same sexual likes and dislikes” were also a factor in loss of interest in sex.

Cynthia Graham, professor of sexual and reproductive health at the University of Southampton, said the findings increased understanding of what lay behind men and women’s lack of interest in sex and how to treat it.

“This highlights the need to assess and – if necessary – treat sexual desire problems in a holistic and relationship-specific, as well as gender-specific way.”

She added that this was a problem that could not be fixed by a pill alone.

“It is important to look beyond anti-depressives,” Prof Graham said.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved the first-ever drug aimed at boosting female libido, called flibanserin.

Ammanda Major said: “Sex is a very personal thing, and talking about it can be embarrassing. But talking is often the best thing you can do to improve your sex life.”

The sudden breakup between NBS TV’s Zahara Totto and her boyfriend, Don Solomon Ugwu alias Big Papa (Oga) continue to surface with more secrets spilled regarding their one-year old relationship.

Issues seem not light at all as we may have earlier anticipated, for the motor-mouthed media personality after another video storming social media today showing a bitter fight between Zahara and now ex-boyfriend, Don Solomon.

In the video, the mother of four is seen ridiculously nagging and clinging to her boyfriend as she begs him not call it quits in their relationship.

She is later thumped to the ground continuously by Big Papa giving her no chance again in his life.

The fight is most-likely to have been a continuation of the leaked audio where Oga was hectically trying to conclude his affair with the ‘Uncut’ show host.

By BigEyeUg Team

Songbird Desire Luzinda has been conservative with disclosing her activities ever since she relocated to the United States of America but here, she bumps with it.

The ‘Ekitone’ singer has shocked her fans and social media followers back here home in Uganda after parading her pictures appearing in a medic dress code, suggesting that she is now pursuing a medical career.

Desire has gone further to reveal that she is now a phlebotomist, ready to attend to patients in blood laboratories especially after her successful phlebotomy exam last week.

She also opened up about her academic journey that at most times failed because of her music career dominancy.

At first, she enrolled at Makerere University pursuing a degree in Development Economics but unfortunately dropped out two years later because of her thrilling music career at that time.

She was also backed-up with hopes of accomplishing the studies someday.

The curvaceous-lady later scooped another chance and got registered at Nkozi University for Development Studies but her love for education was ruined likewise it was at the first time.

This time round, she failed to have her first exam because it collided with her UK music tour dates.

Here, Desire got discouraged more than never before even when I knew the granite importance of Education.

However, her dream of further education was brilliantly forwarded of recent after bearing more commitment and desire enroll again in another preferable field, which she believes is according to God’s wish.

Desire also vows to stick to her goal this time round amidst all hardships she may meet.

Read her statement in full;

This week as I was preparing for my Phlebotomy exam, many thoughts came to my mind.

Many years ago, I enrolled at Makerere University pursuing a degree in Development Economics which I did not complete because my music career had kicked off in high gear. Having dropped off in year 2, at the back of my mind I knew someday I will bounce back and pursue further studies.

Years later, I enrolled at Nkozi university for Development Studies which I barely did for a year because I had a UK tour that my manager ‘then’ committed to and the dates collided with my first Exam period. I began to get tired of trying even when I knew the granite importance of Education.

Fast forward, as I prepared to enroll ‘again’ little did I know God was preparing for me a career totally different. And while many classmates dropped off because of the virtual classes, I said to myself, “not the third time! I have to do this!” So I chose to push even when it was so tough. And here I am on a many years journey of a career very interesting. My point is, never stop trying at something that makes you a better person. People will always talk but would you rather give them talk of you being successful or a failure?! IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU FALL BUT THAT ONE TIME YOU RISE UP AND MAKE IT RIGHT. YOUR JOURNEY IN LIFE IS PERSONAL SO CHASE IT PERSONALLY – Desire

Desire moved to the USA in 2018 and since then, she has often been reported pursuing pastorialship until today when she has buried the rumors.

She breads together with her daughter Michelle.
