It's normal to want a good sex life
Everyone deserves to have rewarding relationships and a satisfying sex life. But for many people, sex is more of a problem than a source of pleasure.
Most people have problems with sex at some point in their life.
- Many young people may have sexual adjustment problems when they start dating or forming their first romantic relationship.
- Once the ‘honeymoon’ phase is over, it’s common for couples to go through stages where they don’t have the time or energy for regular sex.
- When children come along, new parents are often exhausted and struggle to spend time together let alone have sex.
- Older couples experience age related changes that hinder sexual activity.
These all too common life events if not well handled can lead to fights and feelings of resentment.
It’s normal to want a good sex life and sometimes there are specific reasons for your difficulties. Some people deal with these problems themselves but, for others, sexual problems can cause a lot of distress and unhappiness.
If you think you might have a sexual problem, then you are not alone. The media paints sex as natural, easy and spontaneous and makes it look like everyone except you are having loads of hot sex.
Why sex therapy?
Often, couples can’t solve these issues on their own because disappointment, hurt, anger, resentment and conflict have shut down the very discussion they need to have. Plus, what was once an easily solved problem is usually complicated by the fact that many people wait until an unworkable pattern becomes entrenched before seeking help.
If sex and/or relationships aren't giving you pleasure or are causing you concern, then talking things through can help. That said, many people find talking about sex difficult – sometimes excruciating. This is where seeing a sex therapist can help. Sex therapists are psychologists, counsellors or healthcare professionals who have done extra training in helping people with difficulties relating to sex.
