Sexual difficulties are surprisingly common. Research suggests that more than half of us will experience a problem at some point. It might be the impact of children, ageing, work, illness, disability or the use of pornography. In a long term relationship it might be over-familiarity, lack of motivation, or just growing apart.
Sometimes, things from our past such as what we learnt (or didn't learn) about sex, emotional difficulties, abuse or trauma can affect how we are sexually now - despite our best efforts for things to be different.
Some of us experience specific difficulties such as:
• loss of desire or a discrepancy of desire
• erectile difficulties
• early (premature) or inhibited (delayed) ejaculation
• orgasmic difficulties
• penetration difficulties (vaginismus and vulval pain)
• sexual addiction
• sexual phobias
Sex therapy is a 'talking therapy' that offers an opportunity to explore, understand and resolve these difficulties. You don't have to be in a relationship for sex therapy to be helpful.
