Sexual and relationship difficulties are common, and, in many respects, reflect our response to our lifestyle and life experience. Our ability to enjoy our sexuality is affected by life demands and relationship strains. If sexual difficulties arise they can lead to avoidance of sexual contact, a reduction of loving touch and may interfere with intimacy.
Sexual difficulties may range from a lack of sexual desire and arousal to sexual addiction and paraphilia. Men and women and sex and gender diverse people may experience difficulty with arousal: manifesting as unreliable erections, dryness and discomfort or pain during sex. Lack of sexual satisfaction is common- men may ejaculate too quickly, too slowly or not at all, and individuals may dislike sex or may have trouble achieving orgasm. Couples often have different levels of desire, sexual styles and interest, which can lead to conflict and sexual dysfunction.
All sexual problems can be treated, often within a short period of time, and with simple measures that may include counselling, sexual education and medication. Some clients may require medical testing to establish the cause of their difficulty and to determine the best method of treatment.
