How Do I Stop Fantasizing about Her?

How Do I Stop Fantasizing about Her?

Lesbian Partner is Angry about Lack of Sex

Dear Dr. Corwin: My (lesbian) partner and I had a complete blowout last weekend, and now she says she’s done. She was angry because I’d just gotten back from a long trip, and for the first 24 hours I was home I just was into settling back, catching up on work, enjoying being home–but she […]

Is it Anti-Feminist for a Lesbian to Initiate Sex?

Is it Anti-Feminist for a Lesbian to Initiate Sex?

What’s a very common refrain you hear when you ask a lesbian about her sex life? “Once we get started, I love it!” Actually, you hear a version of that about a lot of things, not just sex. “I didn’t want to go to that party, but once I got there I had a great […]

I’m Just Not Attracted to You

I’m Just Not Attracted to You

Here’s something that doesn’t need to be said:  I’m just not attracted to you. Recently “Sally & Sue” came in to talk because they hadn’t had sex in several months. Sally was very upset about it.

Let’s Talk about Sex and Orgasms

Let’s Talk about Sex and Orgasms

One morning in my office a woman told me her biggest fear about beginning to date again was about sex; specifically, how to deal with the fact that orgasm had been so difficult with her last partner, and she just didn’t want to go through that again. That afternoon, another woman told me that she’d […]

Recently I attended a couples’ therapy training program, which was terrific–research-based, positive, practical.   And unexpectedly depressing, as they showed videos of elderly heterosexual couples holding hands and talking tenderly about their 50-70 years of wedded bliss.  How many us can identify? Never mind the sexual orientation–how many of us have that many years in that […]

Is Lesbian Bed Death Inevitable? We Think Not

Is Lesbian Bed Death Inevitable? We Think Not

Seven years ago a young woman came to my office for consultation about a very specific question.  She asked “Do you think lesbian bed death is inevitable?”  Her story was sadly familiar.  She had been living with her partner for 12 years, the past 5 without sex.  She was unhappy about this, but her partner […]
