Brett felt Connie was withholding sex, and that she was doing this to control him. He said they always had to do things her way, and this wasn’t just with sex. Connie countered that Brett was inconsiderate. He was always pressuring her for sex. His complaint about her dominating the relationship was nonsense. If they always did things her way, how come she felt constant pressure to do things his way? According to Connie, Brett was like many men: All he wanted was sex. Brett and Connie’s prior attempt in counseling failed to solve their problem.

I had Brett’s undivided attention. “Brett, you might think the low desire partner controls sex when a relationship is in trouble, and that things won’t be like this when your relationship gets better. The truth is, the low desire partner controls sex whether things are going great or not. It never changes, even when your relationships improves. ” Brett looked puzzled, and I continued. ” “This is the rule whether you like it or not. You can attempt to get around it by coercing your partner to have sex.

Second, Connie finally realized I wasn’t going to turn on her and blame her for their sexual desire problems.
