A great deal of prior research has examined the complexity of sexual desire and the role of sexual desire discrepancy in long-term relationships, but little research has specifically examined strategies used to mitigate sexual desire discrepancy when it arises. Thus, the purpose of the present mixed methods study was to identify the strategies that individuals in long-term relationships use during times of desire discrepancy and to address whether the use of specific strategies influenced sexual and relationship satisfaction and sexual desire.

We collected data from participants and our thematic content analysis produced 17 strategies, divided into five main groups disengagement, communication, engagement in activity alone, engagement in other activity with partner, and have sex anyway. Specific strategies were associated with sexual and relationship satisfaction but not with sexual desire. Specifically, partnered strategies were associated with higher levels of sexual and relationship satisfaction compared to individual strategies.

Additionally, participants who reported that their strategies were very helpful had higher levels of sexual and relationship satisfaction compared to participants who found them somewhat helpful followed by not at all helpful. These have implications for clinicians, educators, and researchers and highlight the importance of using effective strategies to deal with desire discrepancy and communicating about them in relationships.

The use of effective strategies can have implications for overall couple well-being. However, relatively little attention has been paid to the strategies people in long-term relationships use when only one partner is interested in sexual activity. A recent systematic review from Mark and Lasslo provides an overview and a conceptual model highlighting the myriad of factors that influence sexual desire and discusses ways to maintain sexual desire in relationships. Factors influencing sexual desire can be individual, interpersonal, and societal. Some suggested mechanisms whereby couples can maintain sexual desire for each other include engaging in self-expanding activities together and avoiding monotony Ferreira et al.

While these strategies can be helpful in maintaining sexual desire, there may be specific strategies that are particularly well suited to cases of sexual desire discrepancy. A recent study found that while couples are generally in sync with their sexual desire i. The specific strategies used to mitigate sexual desire discrepancy within long-term relationships have been investigated to a degree in prior research.

For example, in a mixed methods study of women in long-term relationships with men, the participants were asked what they do to get their desire back on track when they are out of sync Herbenick et al. The authors identified several strategies that the women used to deal with the desire discrepancy including having sex anyway, using toys, being close physically without having sex, or scheduling sex.

Most of the participants in the sample also stated that they found the strategies at least somewhat helpful. The study was the first of its kind to try to identify specific strategies that couples may use to help with desire discrepancy.

However, the sample consisted of only women and the focus was on getting desire back on track when it is problematic rather than managing naturally occurring and recurring instances of desire discrepancy. The present paper aimed to build on the study by Herbenick et al. A large-scale study conducted in the Beautiful couples wants group sex Rockville. In order to elicit as many strategies as possible, we used open-ended questions to allow participants to report on any and as many strategies as they wanted. We then used thematic content analysis to code and analyze the qualitative data and did not make any a priori hypotheses on what strategies participants would provide.

Our goal was to code individual strategies into groups to enable us to make comparisons between strategies. The approach did not attempt to produce data that are expected to replicate in the future or in other groups, but rather to suggest areas for future study. The primary purpose of the study was twofold: 1 to identify a variety of strategies that individuals used in long-term relationships to mitigate instances of desire discrepancy using qualitative analysis and 2 to determine whether there were any gender and activity partner vs.

Participants were recruited using non-targeted snowball sampling through social media, primarily through sharing a Facebook post through social and professional networks and a tweet on Twitter asking for users to retweet for eligible respondents using hashtags such as relationshipscience and sexscience and relationships.

The social media posts linked directly to the link to the study where participants were assessed for eligibility, read the informationand consented to participate if they were still interested. The eligibility criteria included being at least 18 years old and currently in a romantic relationship.

Participants completed an online questionnaire and answered demographic questions in addition to measures assessing sexual desire, sexual satisfaction, relationship satisfaction, and open-ended questions about how participants mitigate sexual desire discrepancy on discrepant days in addition to how helpful the strategies were for them. All study protocols were approved by the Institutional Review Board of University of Kentucky, and informed consent was obtained from all individual participants included in the study.

The sample consisted of 73 Furthermore, The participants were The majority of the participants were married or cohabiting Seventeen participants 7. The majority of the participants were White The following demographic variables were measured: gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, relationship length, and relationship status.

Additionally, participants completed several instruments to assess a of constructs of interest and open-ended questions, detailed below. The scale is scored on a 7-point semantic differential scale, and higher scores are indicative of greater sexual satisfaction. For the current study, we preregistered analyses involving the full scale and used Beautiful couples wants group sex Rockville partner and solitary scales in the exploratory analyses. The initial stage of the analysis was exploratory in nature in which all possible strategies were first compiled into a single list by the first author.

She then read the list for an understanding of the themes and categorized them based on similar responses into five overarching themes with subthemes, which were entered into a codebook. The second author read the themes and subthemes for clarity and some of the codes were renamed and some combined. The final codebook consisted of five main themes and 17 subthemes. If participants mentioned multiple themes, their main theme was based on either their most common answer or the highest group i.

Consistent with the preregistered plan, the five main themes were used to form five groups of individuals who endorsed a particular strategy.

Due to the assumption of independence, each participant was only included in one group. As specified in the preregistration, three chi-squared tests were used to compare the differences between genders and frequencies of strategies used. In order to control for the experiment-wise error rate often associated with conducting multiple statistical tests, the criteria for statistical ificance for the preregistered hypotheses were assessed using the Holm—Bonferroni method Holm, ; Hommel, The smallest Holm—Bonferroni corrected alpha level is then compared to the smallest p value in the study.

All analyses were conducted in SPSS Due to non-normal distribution of the outcome variables, we did not impute data using expectation maximization as specified in the preregistration.

Strategies to Dealing with Desire Discrepancy The first three questions were used to elicit as many strategies as possible that participants and their partners used by either themselves or together. Similar strategies were combined together, and these resulted in a total of 17 strategies that were further categorized into main themes, which were used in the quantitative analyses. Each participant could report multiple strategies, but each strategy was counted only once if a participant mentioned the strategy in response to more than one question. A summary of the main themes and subthemes with frequencies and Beautiful couples wants group sex Rockville quotes can be found in Table 1.

I am very passionate and affectionate, she is not at all. I wait until I begin to see some level of intimacy interest and then usual ask if she would like to me in the bedroom because I am needing that 1-on-1 time. We will always kiss, cuddle and stroke, no matter what. The percentages and overall s for the main themes were only counted once for each individual. However, each individual may have mentioned more than one subtheme, so the total N for the subthemes is greater than the total of participants in the sample. Most participants who reported masturbating did not specifically mention whether they masturbated alone or with a partner.

Not mutually masturbation though. I would be totally into that but him not so much. Different sexual activities included, for example, oral sex, manual stimulation, masturbating together, or using sex toys on each other. Some participants felt that the advances were welcome and often successful in stimulating desire. It has a rather high success rate. He tries to get me in the mood, if that fails he can get grumpy. So, sex has a function right now, and it is to preserve the relationship. Overall, participants reported a wide range of strategies and many of them also reported multiple strategies to deal with desire discrepancy on days when only one partner desired sex.

Some participants also explained that they would use different strategies depending on the situation. Participants also indicated that there were times when different strategies were used by them and their partner. However, because we do not have data from both members of the couple and most participants reported similar strategies to both questions, we did not analyze these separately.

Helpfulness of Strategies The final open-ended question was related to how helpful participants found the strategies they used. We were able to categorize responses.

The rest of the participants either left the question blank or indicated that the question did not apply to them. I feel very satisfied with the sexual part of our relationship. Less than half the participants who engaged in activity alone A total of 51 participants found their strategies at least somewhat helpful At least one-third of the participants who said they communicated In contrast, only a minority of participants who reported disengaging Finally, 25 participants indicated that their strategies were not helpful Some of the participants who were unhappy with their strategies wished they were able to engage in activity together.

None of the participants who reported communicating about their desire discrepancy reported their strategy unhelpful. We did not specify any post hoc comparisons in the preregistration, and therefore the comparisons are exploratory. Beautiful couples wants group sex Rockville used the adjusted residual scores to compute a chi-squared score and corresponding p values, which were adjusted for multiple comparisons using the Holm—Bonferroni correction. None of the post hoc comparisons were ificant. Next, we explored the possibility that men and women differed in solitary versus partnered strategies and indicated that women were 2.

In order to address H2, we conducted two chi-squared tests: one to compare the frequency of choosing solitary strategies compared to partnered strategies and one to compare the frequency of choosing each strategy. The provided support for the hypothesis and indicated that participants were 1. Further, participants were 1. In contrast, they were 1. A series of Kruskal—Wallis H tests were used to answer H3. None of the other comparisons were ificant after correcting for the familywise error rate. Thus, the provided support for the H3a and H3b but not H3c. Finally, we conducted a series of Kruskal—Wallis tests to assess whether individuals who found their strategies very helpful, somewhat helpful, and not at all helpful differed in their levels of sexual and relationship satisfaction and sexual desire.

We predicted that participants who found their strategies more helpful would have higher levels of sexual and relationship satisfaction and desire. The prediction was directional, and therefore the p values are adjusted for one-tailed alpha level. Therefore, the findings provided support for H4a and H4b but not for H4c. Although not specified in the preregistration, we also conducted Kruskal—Wallis H tests to compare solitary and partnered strategies. Because these hypotheses were not specified a priori, they should be interpreted as exploratory and were not part of the Holm—Bonferroni corrected tests.

Because the chi-squared analyses indicated ificant differences between men and women in the strategies they chose, we decided to also examine whether the strategies associated with sexual and relationship satisfaction and sexual desire differed for men and for women. None of the other comparisons were ificant after controlling for the familywise error rate.

We also compared solitary and partnered strategies for men and women separately. None of the analyses were ificant for sexual desire. We used the full-scale score of the SDI for the confirmatory analyses but were also interested in whether there would be ificant group differences in dyadic sexual desire and solitary sexual desire.
