The Affection Vs. Intercourse Problem or All He Wants Is My Body.
Knox, David
This paper discusses the problems of affection versus intercourse in a male/female relationship, with differing degrees or periods of sexual interest listed as the most frequent sexual problem reported by students studied who were living together and by married couples. The problem occurs when one partner is refused while trying to initiate sexual behavior with the other. The author reviews a procedure which has been helpful in overcoming differences in sexual desires and which, theoretically, should develop a new attitude toward intercourse for both partners. Minor successes were reported in an actual study of 10 couples who used this procedure. Success was defined by the wife learning a more positive attitude toward her husband's approach behavior, and the husband perceiving his wife as desiring intercourse more frequently. Several problems with the procedure are reviewed and caution urged in its therapeutic use. (PC)
