I want to encourage you, especially women, who are experiencing sexual power struggles, to take action.
Sexual power is power that is the result of the sexual desire in a relationship. Sexual power is often used by men against their partners or by women against men. Sexual power can be experienced by women when men dominate women, especially when these are relationships of power (a sexual relationship with a higher power, like a wife/wife) and in some situations in which sex between a man and a woman is viewed as sexual. Sex can be used as a weapon or a power play. When a man sexually dominates his partner, for example by withholding sex, she may experience sexual power in her relationship. For example, when a man withholds sex from his wife, he can use her sex power as a weapon to assert his dominance and control over her. In this case, the wife feels that he is using her sexual power against her and he may feel anger and/or resentment. The power that is often experienced is a power play, the power play that takes place between two people of unequal power who are sexually intimate. Some people have experienced sexual power without being physically intimate.
