Oh, you can’t define that. I think you don’t know what is normal so I think what we do is that we talk to the women and they have something that’s distressing for them. So the strange thing about having sexual problems and I guess both the men and women but especially in women are that, what could be normal for me is not normal for my neighbor. So I think it’s a very individual thing that you have to find out. What are the expectations? Are they within a range that can be so-called normal, or is it you are just expecting something that’s not realistic? But what is normal is very difficult to say. So I think you have to talk to a woman and find out is this really a problem, and does it makes sense that it is the problem for her, and then you could say this is not what it’s supposed to be for her. So I don’t think you can say what is normal. We have some kind of data saying this is what most women do but that doesn’t usually make it normal. I think it’s so difficult to answer because sexuality is influenced by so many different aspects. So if you are working ten hours a day and have five children at home, I would say it’s normal not have sexual desire. So I think normal is very difficult to define and I think that’s one of the most common asked questions.
