Old therapy joke:
Q: What’s the difference between defense mechanisms and sex? A: You can go a whole day without sex.
Actually, we can go without sex for a lot longer than that. But you wouldn’t know it from listening to some of my patients. Or their partners.
It generally sounds like this: “So I just need a lot of sex. I can’t help it, that’s just how I am—I need a lot of sex, preferably every day.”
