You can read books about female desire on the Tube and buy a vibrator from Boots. But the statistics tell a different story about the sex lives of UK women. We’re having less sex than we were a decade ago, and we’re having less satisfying sex than men. This matters, since the research is clear that regular, satisfying sex has a positive impact on your mental and physical health. With that in mind, we’ve called upon the expertise of a real life sex doctor to tackle the goal of building a more satisfying sex life. This week, Senior Editor Roisín Dervish-O’Kane chats to Dr Karen Gurney, a clinical psychologist, psycho-sexologist and the author of the brand new book <Mind The Gap: The Truth About Desire And How To Futureproof Your Sex Life>.
