Women Are More Likely to Lose Interest in Sex
A British study involving nearly 6.700 women and 5,000 men suggests women are twice as likely as men to lose interest in sex when living with a partner. The study, which was published in BMJ Open, also showed that physical and mental health problems and a lack of emotional closeness play a role in waning sexual interest for men and women.
Fifteen percent of men and 34 percent of women surveyed reported losing interest in sex for three months or longer in the previous year. In men, the lack of desire was highest between ages 35 and 44, and in women, it spiked between 55 and 64.
According to researchers at the University of Southampton and University College London, who conducted the survey, aging plays a role in loss of desire in women and men.
