Sexual dysfunction can be any problems that prevent a person or couple from experiencing satisfaction from sexual activity. Some 43% of women and 31% of men report some degree of sexual dysfunction.
Sexual dysfunction generally is classified into four categories:
Lack of sexual desire or interest in sex.
Inability to become physically aroused or excited during sexual activity.
Delay or absence of orgasm (climax).
Pain During Intercourse.
|IN MEN AND WOMEN
For the couple who wants to begin enjoying their sexual relationship, it’s well worth the time and effort to work with a trained professional. Therapists are often good marital counsellors, as well.
These involve various techniques, including insights into harmful behaviours in the relationship, or techniques such as self-stimulation for treatment of problems with arousal and/or orgasm.
Therapy with a trained counsellor can help you address sexual trauma from the past, feelings of anxiety, fear, guilt and poor body image. All of these factors may affect sexual function.
