Karen Nimmo asked sex therapist Mary Hodson, of Sex Therapy New Zealand, these questions.

  • Is there an ideal amount of sex in a relationship?
  • When most couples are under huge stress with work and families and life admin, at the end of a hard day, a cup of tea and a good book make pretty decent bed partners, don’t they?
  • What should couples struggling with differences in libido do?
  • Is it possible for a couple to change their sexual style?
