Trans activists have savaged Scarlett Johansson for playing a trans person in an upcoming film. This almost guarantees the film won’t get made–a tragedy for trans people. What star in their right mind will now make such a movie?
As a sex therapist, I work with couples every week in which one partner wants more sex than the other.
When it’s a small disparity people generally work it out. But when one person wants sex twice a week and other wants it twice a year, many couples simply can’t cope. Ideally, couples would struggle over this together: what are WE going to do about OUR problem?
What’s more common, unfortunately, is that each partner sees themselves as having the primary pain. And each person looks at the other and says what are YOU going to do about MY suffering that YOU’VE created?
