Women’s Sexual Health: Mayo Clinic Radio

September 1, 2013

Women's sexual health, like men's, is important to overall emotional and physical well-being. Achieving a healthy and satisfying sex life doesn't happen by magic. It takes self-reflection and candid communication. Although talking about sexuality can be difficult, it's a topic well worth addressing. Discussing women's sexual health concerns is the topic of our next program.  Stephanie Faubion, M.D., and Jacqueline Thielen, M.D., from the Mayo Women’s Health Clinic, will join us to talk about Women’s Sexual Health.

Many people think that sex starts with physical desire, and although this may be true for men, research suggests that women's sexual responses may be more complex. For many women, physical desire is not always the starting point. A woman may be motivated to have sex to feel close to her partner or to show her feelings.  What it means to be sexually fulfilled may differ for men and women, and even among women.

As you can tell, this will be a candid topic, but one well worth addressing.
