Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Too often, when women are not interested in sex at the same levels their male partners are, they are told either that there is something wrong with them or that they are obligated to find a way to meet mens desires. Friends instruct us to engage in maintenance sex in order to keep our male partners happy. Women are told they are cruel or bad partners if they dont have sex with their boyfriends and husbands enough or in the ways requested of them. In sex advice columns and self help books, as well as in sex therapy, women are often instructed to watch pornography with their partners or are told there must be something wrong with their relationship because they dont show interest (or the correct level of interest) in penetrative, heteronormative sex. Somehow, it is always women who are the problem " dysfunctional, prudish, selfish, or lazy.

To learn more about the ways sex therapy, sex advice, and sexology more broadly reinforce ideas that harm women and perpetuate rape culture, Meghan Murphy speaks with Dr Meagan Tyler, a Senior Lecturer at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia.
