In this episode of “Ask a Mormon Sex Therapist” Brian talks with Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife about how the high desire partner can best contribute to a relationship that is sexually dysfunctional but also in the process of healing (hint: not necessarily just being patient), the second question is about male ownership of sexual desire (when you want it but you don’t openly acknowledge and express your sexual desire for your wife).

I was wondering where a married couple who are active in the church would go if they wanted to get ideas to add variety to their sex life. It seems risky to go just surfing around the internet. I realize you may not want to give specific websites, etc. but wondered if you have any direction you might head a person in.
