Book Review: My Spouse Wants More Sex Than Me By Ruxandra LeMay, Psy.D.

I don't know many couples who haven't struggled with this issue at some point or another: the commitment to family and career dulls the blooms on the rose and the physical relationship with our partner suffers. But who has time to commitment to reading a 250-to 300-page book about how to fix it? Now, there's a solution.

In less than seventy-five pages, My Spouse Wants More Sex Than Me by Ruxandra LeMay, Psy.D. boils this topic down into what you need to do--and can do in a short period of time--to improve your relationship.

Written with authority and humor, LeMay understands what couples are dealing with because she has dealt with it too. She has taken what can seem like an overwhelming situation and gives the reader ideas they can try right away to make a difference in their relationship with their spouse.

My favorite part is how the material is presented. While acknowledging the content slants more toward women, LeMay doesn't forget how men feel about this sensitive topic. She talks to them too; making this an excellent resource for both genders. I also like that the author talks about the commitment marriage requires. Her dedication to helping couples understand each other is evident throughout the book.

I would highly recommend My Spouse Wants More Sex Than Me to anyone struggling with this issue or to anyone looking to maintain a happy and fulfilling physical relationship with their spouse.

Dr. Ruxandra LeMay is a licensed psychologist in Phoenix, Arizona. After earning her undergraduate degree in Business Management, she spent 15 years in the corporate business world. While working with numbers and negotiating contracts, she realized that she enjoyed working and motivating co-workers with different personalities and different ways of doing things. She liked working with people, helping them focus on their strengths, and mediating communication with their management or conflict with peers. It was during this time, she decided to dive into the world of psychology. She went back to school and earned her Master’s and Doctorate degrees in Clinical Psychology.
During her formal training, she continued with her interest in relationships, this time in family and couples’ therapy: pre-marital education, marriage counseling, and post-divorce mediation. In addition, she worked with adults and adolescents struggling with addiction, anxiety, and mood disorder related issues. Last but not least, as she became a wife and mother, women’s life concerns became another topic of interest. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, ante- and post-partum challenges, low sex drive, and parenting have all been at the forefront of her study for the last ten years.
She has a very direct and practical style. Therapy takes time and money. They are both valuable and she does not want to waste your time or your money. She wants to offer the most effective recommendations that you can implement right away so you can feel immediate relief from whatever it is that you are facing. Her book, blogs, and therapy are all a reflection of her belief that even small changes, if they are the right ones, can make a big difference in someone’s life.
Her latest book is the nonfiction/psychology/self-help book, My Spouse Wants More Sex Than Me: The 2-Minute Solution for a Happier Marriage.
