Sexuality

Although occasional problems with sexual function are common, such as lack of sexual desire or inability to achieve arousal or orgasm, if your problems last for more than a few months or cause distress to you or your partner, it is advisable to see a professional.

What are sexual dysfunctions?

Difficulties in sexual relations are called dysfunctions and there are different types with specific characteristics. We can speak of a lack of desire or rejection of any sexual contact, difficulty in reaching an adequate level of arousal that allows for satisfactory sexual relations or painful sexual interchange, among others.

Enjoying sexuality is something we all want, but it is not uncommon for difficulties to appear in order to achieve a satisfactory sex life. This generates feelings of guilt, anguish or shame in those who suffer from it, so it is important to solve them. On many occasions the dysfunctions appear due to a lack of information, in response to very stressful life circumstances, or due to a lack of communication or intimacy within the couple.

As you can see, sexuality is much more than physiology or sexual response itself, it is emotion, it is communication, it is education and it is choice.

Symptoms of sexuality problems

Sexual problems can occur during different times of the sexual encounter and may be presented as some of these symptoms:

  • Absence or decrease of desire, or on the contrary an uncontrollable and excessive desire that dominates you.
  • Not enough excitement is achieved to facilitate full and painless sexual intercourse.
  • It is difficult to enjoy the moment and let yourself go.
  • Orgasm is not achieved.

But also, as we have said, sexuality goes beyond sex with a partner. We can be talking about traumas of a sexual nature that make the person’s current day difficult. And also about doubts about one’s own identity or conflicts with it that need to be worked out with a trusted person.

How to fully enjoy your sexuality

Enjoying full sexuality begins with clarifying one’s knowledge of oneself, one’s psychology and physiology and, if necessary, establishing a clear identity in terms of gender and sexual orientation. Information and self-knowledge is the first tool we must have.

A good case study will help to highlight the problem at the tip of the iceberg, which is sexual dissatisfaction: a traumatic event, the sum of bad experiences in the field of intimacy, high anxiety and self-observation, lack of communication, problems in other areas of life that impact on sexuality, etc.
