Dr. Love,I don’t know if I am a normal healthy woman or if I have a sexual problem. I love sex. I love being intimate with my man.The problem is that during sex, my orgasms grow in intensity and I have numerous ones. My man can’t keep up with me. After sex, I am left wanting more.If I go without sex for at least a week, the urge seems to go away. As soon as I have it again, I have the need for more and more. I am not complaining about this. I just wanted your advice as to whether this is normal or not.My partner is not complaining although he kids that I am trying to kill him. Thank you for listening.Michele
It is wonderful that you are so sexually responsive. What concerns me is that you worry that you have a problem. What exactly worries you about your sexual response?You need to identify what that is and then explore your concern. Are you worried that you are going to overwhelm your partner? Are you worried that you are feeling emotionally empty and that sex is being used to fill that hole inside yourself (no pun intended)?I always encourage people to listen to their concerns and not dismiss them. So do explore the concern and see where it leads.From a strictly textbook point of view, your response isn’t out of bounds. There are some lucky women who find it easy to achieve multiple and explosive orgasms. The fact is that human sexual response is as varied as are fingerprints.All that counts is that you are comfortable with your sexuality. Clearly you aren’t, and that is the area that must be addressed and resolved.
