ADHD and Sex: Building Focus and Attention for Intimacy

June 22, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT


EXPERTS: Ari Tuckman, Psy.D., MBAStephanie Sarkis, Ph.D.

Partners in healthy, enduring romantic relationships typically experience sexual satisfaction as part of their strong connection. But as many couples living with ADHD know all too well, forgetfulness, procrastination, and other traits associated with ADHD can take a toll on relationships and on sex.

Sex therapist Ari Tuckman conducted a survey of 3,000 people with ADHD and their non-ADHD partners about their sex lives. He asked about levels of satisfaction, frequency, infidelity, and much more. Among his findings: people with ADHD feel things more intensely and experience more sexual eagerness than do their non-ADHD partners. Bridging these differences, and other flashpoints, can strengthen a relationship.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How ADHD can affect your sex life and relationship
  • Strategies to make time for intimacy and why this is important
  • Why sensitivity can make intimacy challenging for the non-ADHD partner
  • Approaches to help couples build trust for each other
  • How treatment for ADHD improves intimacy
