Sexual Issues & Enhancement

Sexual dysfunction (or sexual malfunction or sexual disorder) is difficulty experienced by an individual or a couple during any stage of sexual activity, including physical pleasure, desire, preference, arousal, or orgasm. 

Sexual issues can occur at any time in a person's life, can because by many things, and can cause a great day of heartache and frustration. 

Many people find talking about their sexual issues embarrassing, but research shows that 43% of women and 31% of men report some degree of difficulty. A trained professional will be completely comfortable talking about these issues and will have worked extensively with many types of sexual issues. 

Sexual dysfunction is generally classified into four main categories:

  • Desire Disorders: lack of sexual desire or interest in sex
  • Arousal Disorders: inability to become physically aroused or excited during sexual activity
  • Orgasm Disorders: delay or absence of orgasm (climax), or premature ejaculation
  • Pain Disorders: pain during intercourse

In women, symptoms can include:

  • Inability to achieve orgasm (anorgasmia)
  • Inadequate vaginal lubrication before and during intercourse
  • Inability to relax the vaginal muscles enough to allow intercourse (Vaginismus)

In men, symptoms can include:

  • Inability to achieve or maintain an erection (erectile dysfunction)
  • Absent or delayed ejaculation despite sexual stimulation (retarded ejaculation)
  • Inability to control the timing of ejaculation (early or premature ejaculation)

Symptoms seen in both men and women:

  • Lack of interest in or desire for sex
  • Inability to become aroused
  • Pain with intercourse

Causes of sexual dysfunction can be either physical or psychological. Physical causes can include diabetes, heart and vascular disease, neurological disorders, hormonal imbalances, chronic diseases such as kidney or liver failure, and alcoholism and drug abuse. Some medications including some anti-depressant drugs and blood pressure medications, can affect sexual function. Psychological causes can include work-related stress and anxiety, concern about sexual performance, marital or relationship problems, depression, feelings of guilt, concerns about body image, and the effects of a past sexual trauma.
