Poor Health and Lack of Communication Related to Low Sexual Interest, Study Says

Nov 28, 2017

"These findings suggest that for women early sexual experiences may shape future sexual encounters/relationships to a greater extent than for men,” the study authors explained.

They added that healthcare providers might consider relationship and contextual factors when treating patients with low interest.

They also encouraged the inclusion of relationship education to overall sex education “rather than limiting attention only to adverse consequences of sex and how to prevent them.” Doing so, they noted, could help people whose sexual health might be affected by early sexual experiences.
