Do you feel like you and your partner are sexually mismatched? Clinical sexologist Dr Eve explores sexual desire discrepancy.

Are you and your partner on the same page when it comes to sex?

Some couples have disparate levels of sexual appetite, causing distress and difficulty in their relationships.

16% of men and 26% of women suffer from low sexual desire or Sexual Desire Disorder (SDD), says clinical sexologist Dr Eve.

She says partners should not try convince or coerce their significant others into sex - it may worsen matters.

According to Dr Eve, creating closeness, emotional intimacy and connection is an important way for couples to overcome SDD.

She explains that a dysfunctional sexual relationship impacts a couple more than the effects of a healthy sexual relationship.

Sexual difficulties cause 50%-75% of the relationship dissatisfaction.

Dr Eve, clinical sexologist

Majority of couples are struggling to find some kind of negotiable, satisfactory situation that does not negatively impact their relationship.

Dr Eve, clinical sexologist

Improving a woman's desire come from improving the connection, intimacy and communication.

Dr Eve offered her expert advice and listeners phoned in to share their personal experiences.

There's just no sexual drive on my wife's side. She has to remind herself to keep me physically happy. It becomes a chore for her. I've learned to accept it, but it becomes frustrating.

Andrew, caller

My girlfriend and I have been together for three years. In that three years we've had sex less than 20 times.

Paul, caller

I'm a 38-year-old mother of two and to be honest I don't know what an orgasm is.
