The article describes how an increasing number of people view low sex drive as a medical problem. The same can be said for people who suffer from Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). As life expectancy of such patients has increased they want a better sex life and a satisfying relationship with another person. Low sex drive is a problem for many people with SCI and could result from low testosterone levels, drug use or emotional factors. The article discusses how these problems can be overcome.
