Woman with low sexual desire

Great article about women with low sexual desire and painful intercourse in NYT

Women who want to want

MORE THAN BY any other sexual problem — the elusiveness of orgasm, say, or pain
during sex — women feel plagued by low desire. The problems often overlap, but
above all the others that can thwart an erotic life, the remoteness of lust is
what impels women to seek treatment. And as Brotto discusses the disorder, she
is not talking about something physical. She regularly wires the genitals of her
patients to a photoplethysmograph to measure whether the women respond with
surges of vaginal blood flow while they watch a pornographic video. Almost
always, they do.
