When a partner no longer wants to engage in sex, we may become worried and anxious. And if the lustless partner in question is a man (and heterosexual) it may sound an even louder alarm. Aren’t men supposed to crave sex constantly? And what about women? The simple answer is: not always. No sex is not always a reason to worry about the state of a relationship. Trained psychologist and sexual therapist Nicole Engel explores the many reasons why sometimes there’s no action in bed and explains that things might not be as bad as they seem.
From Sigmund Freud to today: for centuries female sexuality has been a source of irritation for men. The confusion about “what women want” was and remains so fundamental that men have devoted whole libraries to exploring female desire. This is a manifesto on what women really want! Or don’t. Because what we want is actually quite simple–if not easy. It comes down to two things, according to our author Tina Molin.
The successful german author Caroline Rosales loves her life as a single mother and in her new book advocates for single parents. Here is a portrait of a great woman!
In the office, at family events or with friends – women apologize endlessly. According to an article from the German newspaper, Süddeutschen Zeitung, approximately 75% of everyday apologies come from the mouths of women.

The ultimate must-dos might include anything from partying at Berlin’s famous Berghain and celebrating at the Oscars to spending a year lounging in Koh Pha-ngan and experiencing a sex orgy. But how does a drama-free threesome actually work? Our author Tina Molin has a few tips to help you.
“Sexual issues are mostly psychological in nature for both men and women. Common problems include difficulties with sexual arousal, desire fatigue and dyspareunia – or pain during sex. Men talk more often about premature ejaculation. Women talk more often about vaginismus, also known as vaginal cramps,” the certified psychologist and sexual therapist Nicole Engel explains.
Women are romantic. We love cuddling, kissing, candlelight, satin sheets – and above all else – extensive foreplay. OK. Wow. What a load of you know what. In the same way every human body is different, so are sexual preferences. Speaking for myself, I don’t get turned on at all by long rounds of foreplay. I’m a woman of action and, if you go by statistics, I am not alone in this preference. But still the relationship between women and foreplay remains a mystical topic, as if it was some high-level witchcraft. In contrast, just by taking a quick poll in the streets of New York, we found the perspectives on foreplay from both men and women to be quite different.
