I have a higher sex drive than my boyfriend. We started out okay but now he’s always trying to get out of doing it. What‘s going on?
Answer: While the general assumption has always been that a man would bang anything in a skirt or that a lady isn‘t as aggressive when it comes to sex, we all know that isn‘t true, now.
All things considered, the female and male sex drives are moving targets. They dip and peak, and it’s not always you’re on the same page. Sometimes, somebody wants it more.

There‘s another gorilla in the room; It‘s whatever is turned on electronically,” says Norman Spack, associate clinical professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. What does that tell us? Fingers off Facebook, and put that phone away.
