The average relationship length of the sample was a little over two years (2.14 years for women and 2.05 years for men), though relationship length ranged from 1 to 108 months (9 years).The desire subscale of the Female Sexual Function Index and the Male Sexual Function Index were used to assess the outcome variable, sexual desire.
For women, their sexual desire decreased by .02 on the measure of desire for each additional month they were in their current relationship.
Certainly, over time, this decrease may become meaningful if it continues to decrease steadily over the course of a relationship.
But scores on the scale range from 1.2 to 6.0, so that gives you an idea of how much desire is decreasing each month.
For men, sexual desire was not significantly predicted by relationship length (but it was by sexual satisfaction).
Recent research has confirmed what has been a prominent theme in media messages about women’s sexual desire for a long time.
Women’s sexual desire decreases as relationship length increases.
However, men do not experience the same decrease in sexual desire as relationship duration lengthens.
University of Guelph researchers (and close colleagues of mine), Sarah Murray and Dr.
Robin Milhausen published their paper titled “Sexual Desire and Relationship Duration in Young Men and Women” in .
This research suggests that men and women may have different sexual desire experiences related to duration of relationship.
It also suggests that different factors may decrease desire for men and women.
This study surveyed 170 undergraduate men and women (91 female, 79 male) who ranged in age from 18 to 25.
