Sex, Love and Intimacy Through Midlife Changes (cont.)

grigori_WebMD: question. What is the best way to handle a libido mismatch?

Jacobowitz: tell/Moderator: No they mean she does he doesn't or vice versa

Jacobowitz: Masturbation is a healthy answer if you want no partner, have no partner, or are slower to arousal than your partner. A mismatch takes some negotiating, and communication is the best aphrodisiac and the best lubricant. Okay?

Jacobowitz: Yes, I know that there is a beauty in having and savoring a good intimate relationship. You have to work at it and it's worth it.
