Are you a woman who is worried about a loss of libido? Do you feel that your lack of desire is negatively affecting your life and relationship? If so, you are not alone. Statistics indicate that 30% of women lose interest in sex at some point in time. Desire loss and orgasm issues are the most common problems women report in international studies of sexual satisfaction. This course is designed to help you uncover the reasons why your libido went on vacation and didn't take you along.

Transform Your Sex Life Using Current Scientific Information on Female Sexuality.

This class looks at the scientific research on female sexuality: why women lose interest in sex and how they can use science to transform their sex life.

This course examines the cultural, medical, psychological, and relational aspects of female desire loss. While there are plenty of sexuality courses and books that will give you a general overview on why women lose interest in sex, very few are backed up with solid scientific data.  Many are just plain fluff and taught by people with questionable credentials. Plus, some aspects of the issue are usually given the short shrift.

This course is comprehensive, provides solid information, and takes a broad perspective. It is designed to help women of all ages improve their sex lives. The only requirements are an open mind and a commitment to making changes in your life.

What You Will Learn:

  • You will learn the common reasons women lose interest in sex.
  • Which medications kill your sex drive.
  • How the major female hormones impact desire, and why hormonal factors aren't usually the sole cause of desire loss in women.
  • How to have a better orgasm (or have one at all, if you've never been orgasmic).
  • How to talk about sex with your partner.
  • Specific strategies to deal with desire discrepancies in relationships.
  • How to use cognitive restructuring to change negative thought patterns that decrease desire and enjoyment.
  • How to manage body image issues and performance anxiety.
  • How cultural norms may have undermined your sexuality.
  • You will develop increased self-awareness.
  • You will learn about FDA approved treatments for desire loss.
  • You will gain increased insight into yourself and your partner.
