Sexless relationships

--:--
What goes on behind closed doors can vary from couple to couple or even change between the same couple over time. In addition, your definition of a healthy sex life might not be exactly like your partner's. In other cases, one partner may no longer feel turned on by the other, or they may not desire sex because they're attracted to someone else or have a medical condition which makes love-making difficult.
And who better to discuss this than Dr Eve? She's an internationally trained clinical sexologist and couple and sex therapist in private practice. She's an academic, educator and author of four books. In this episode, she speaks to Nthabi Nhlapo about coping in a relationship where sex is impossible or not desired.
