Note: You might be wondering about the Attention Deficit Disorder part of the subtitle. It’s confusing, I know. When the book came out, in 2008, the official term was still in flux. Many people still said A.D.D. and others said A.D.H.D. to mean only ADHD with hyperactivity. To further complicate things, the new official term at that time was AD/HD. As I predicted, that didn’t last long. Bottom line: I made a call that I hoped would reach the most people. As for a future revision, who knows.
My second book, Adult ADHD-Focused Couple Therapy: Clinical Strategies, co-authored with veteran ADHD expert and psychologist Arthur L. Robin, with contributions from leading ADHD clinicians, was published by Routledge, in January 2016. Available at many outlets, including Amazon.

Yes, sexual expression is yet another one of those areas—like sleep—where the public and professionals alike often fail to connect the dots to ADHD symptoms.
As I write in my first book, Is It You, Me, or Adult A.D.D.?:
“When ADHD does create significant sexual problems, it usually falls into two categories: The ADHD partner initiates sex all the time or almost never. In the sexual relationship as in elsewhere with ADHD, we encounter variable challenges in self-regulation and summoning motivation.”
Between these extremes (always and never) lies a range of issues that can drive apart couples—if they don’t know what they’re dealing with or what strategies to implement. Ignorance about this critically important connection between ADHD and sexual intimacy creates so much unnecessary hurt.
