Sarah Fletcher, psychosexual therapist at Coupleworks. However much we like to say we're equal, we're different. Couples often don't talk truthfully about sex to one another.
For women, it's more likely to be chatrooms, online relationships, flirting, "Skype sex". How close can I let myself be to a person? It's seen as the worst thing in the world that would definitely lead to break-up.

Recently there have been the revelations and prosecutions around paedophilia and our service has seen more people coming forward because of unwanted sexual experiences in childhood. I think we definitely need to open up more conversations, in sex ed in school, in the media, and in sex advice, about the diversity of sexual orientations, and about how people manage the rules of their relationships around monogamy.
I think it's a response to online porn, Fifty Shades of Grey , the fact that sex is talked about more than ever. They've never really learned to enjoy their fantasies and their bodies so that sex can be pleasurable.
