How Sex Therapy Can Help You is the question I’m going to answer in this document and podcast today. Sometimes professionals make the mistake of not explaining our work well and we do not realize that people on the street may have logical doubts as to whether or not they need specialized care for their problems.
Many times I have been asked, after going to the doctor and ruling out the physical or organic cause, if sexual problems may have a psychological cause and what did this mean. There is a lot of misinformation, confusion and shame when it comes to consulting a sexual dysfunction or difficulty. It is a problem that affects intimacy and the taboo of sex makes you suffer for too long before going to a specialist.
WHAT KIND OF PROBLEMS DOES SEXUAL THERAPY TREAT?
Sex therapy takes care of all kinds of problems that affect sexuality. Most often what is commonly understood by male and female sexual dysfunctions.
Sexual dysfunctions they occur in both sexes and are frequent. “Dysfunction” It means that something is not working well and we can differentiate three levels in sexuality where something can go wrong: in orgasm, in the phase of excitement and at the levels of appetite or sexual desire.
The most common in men is premature and delayed ejaculation and erection problems.
In women, anorgasmia, which is the difficulty of reaching orgasm and problems with vaginismus and pain during intercourse.
In both the problems of sexual desire, usually of low desire or loss of it.
WHO NEEDS IT SEXUAL THERAPY
Sex therapy may be necessary for everyone at some point in life. The lack of sexual information coupled with vital situations for which we are not prepared can lead to specific problems that, if they are not taken care of, lead to a more serious sexual problem. We can consider isolated episodes of erection failure or pain during intercourse as normal. They just happen, but if we worry and let ourselves be carried away by the fear of their recurrence, exactly what we fear can happen and get worse.
In men the current model of sexuality centered on the performance genital and not in the search for pleasant relationships where the ultimate goal is the enjoyment of the senses produces problems. It leads many men to significant anxiety levels related to their performance or ability to pleasure their partner and easily causes problems in their sexual response.
While men continue to think that intercourse is the only and most pleasurable form of sexual expression and that penetration is the expression of male virility, or that women’s pleasure depends on the man’s expertise in this regard and that he must satisfy it through sexual intercourse. intercourse will continue to occur anxiety for performance in every sexual encounter and it’s easy for something to go wrong.
Sexual problems in men are due, in the vast majority, to psychological causes. When a man suffers an episode of “failure” of his erection he is afraid of repeating it again and this anguish blocks the mechanisms of his sexual response.
In the women There may be sexual problems derived from the reduction of the time that is dedicated to maintaining erotic encounters that become more mechanical and faster. This also makes them less attractive and desirable and they do not respond to the needs of most women.
The more repressive the sexuality education received and the less possibilities to explore and to discover one’s own body and the pleasure, the easier it is going to be that a person does not discover his erotic preferences and does not reach orgasm for it.
It is easy to understand why in this society, where sexuality is still a taboo and where the concealment and lack of sexual information continues to have a major impact on the group of women, it is they who present this type of sexual disorder. This is so because the orgasm it is a part of sexuality that is discovered, that is learned to feel and depends, in many cases, on the ability to achieve it.
WHEN TO GO TO SEXUAL THERAPY
When a person or couple feels that they have exhausted all their resources and that a reasonable time has passed without observing an improvement in their sexual relations, it is time to ask for help.
When you realize that things are getting worse and affect other parts of the relationship, when we feel bad emotionally or when new sexual problems associated with the first arise, it is time to ask for help.
It is common for a problem of premature ejaculation in men it leads to a decrease in the frequency of sexual intercourse due to the fear that the problem will recur and have a bad time. Therefore it can lead to a problem of loss of sex drive or lead to greater difficulty in reach orgasm in the woman or erection problems in homosexual couples.
It is clear that an unattended sexual problem can lead to others or even cause a complete blockage of sexuality as a couple. Do not hesitate to ask for help as soon as possible as most sexual problems can be corrected and solved in a fairly short period of time.
WHAT TECHNIQUES ARE USED
As I say, sex therapy consists of iaccurate information on the sexed body itself and the functioning of the human sexual response and in erotic type tasks adapted to the person or couple and the type of sexual difficulty suffered.
Normally no drugs are used because we are not treating diseases and they are not necessary. The vast majority of sexual dysfunctions are due to psychological factors such as fear of failing, anxiety about repeating one more frustrating sexual relationship and ignorance of the male and female sexual response.
Masters y Johnson They are considered the fathers of modern Sexology thanks to their contributions on Human Sexual Response. They investigated in the laboratory the physiological bases of arousal and orgasm and invented, based on this scientific information on human sexuality, the first effective techniques of sex therapy to help people and couples with sexual problems. Today most of his contributions are still valid and specialists in sexology from around the world have used and adapted his sexual techniques to help millions of people affected by it.
CAN ONE PERSON GO ALONE?
Sex therapy cares for both single people and couples suffering from a sexual problem. All sexual dysfunctions can be treated individually in such a way that the lost ground is recovered, confidence increases and a future meeting with another person is successfully prepared.
If there is a relationship, it is recommended to come together or, where appropriate, share all the information from the therapy sessions and ensure the intelligent collaboration of the couple. In many cases time problems and family or work commitments make it very difficult to go together as a couple. It does not matter as long as the information is shared and understood and it is agreed to reserve a weekly space to perform the proposed tasks and ensure the adequate progress of the therapy.
In many cases it is very difficult to attend in person, either due to physical distance or difficulty of personal time for it. The solution is the OnLine Sexology that allows to attend to cases remotely with the same effectiveness as in person. Communication technology enables us to better help people and we must use it in this regard.
