What a previous partner liked may not be what gets you off, since each of us is different. Gather as much factual information as you can about both your STI(s), including transmission, prevention, treatment, and the actual physical effects of the infection.

So it will come as no surprise that a third of them say they are less interested in sex than their male partner.Meanwhile just one in ten men said they want sex less than their partner.Professor Gabb said: ‘Men reported they wanted to have sex more frequently, while women wanted it less often, and we saw that some men thought about sex in a different way.‘For some men, sex appeared to feature as something that was done for them by their female partners rather than something that was shared between the couple.’The findings were presented to the British Sociological Association’s annual conference in Manchester.At the start of a relationship this was the case for only one in five women.But after 16 years together, almost half of women found their sex drive had fallen below their partner’s.Following a survey of 5,000 people in relationships aged 16 to 65, researchers from the Open University and Huddersfield University found couples who can talk about the difference in their sex drive are the best at carrying on regardless.
