This is part 3 of a series that explores why some women seem to have low sexual desire. On 8/20/11, we talked about the importance of sex being part of love; 9/8/11 focused on biological differences between men and women as a likely cause and today we will talk about the importance of sensuality. What you think about and what is going on mentally and psychologically can make a big impact on sexual desire. We will talk about the difference between sensuality and sexuality and the problems we face when we compartmentalize our lives. What are some of the common blocks that get in our way and what are some ways we can tear down some of these walls? We will talk about the importance of sensuality as it pertains to a satisfying sex life.
