It is important to learn how to live with our changing bodies to avoid disappointments and unnecessary health risks.

Men and low libido: 8 ways to reignite desire

It certainly is not something men like to talk about. But a low libido, especially later in life, is something that can be dealt with. And since there are cures and because, as explained by Barry McCarthy, professor emeritus of psychology and and sex therapist expert at the American University in Washington, a low libido can hurt a couple more than any other sex related disorder.

All the same, there needs to be some way to measure sexual desire.
