Sexual Dysfunctions

Sexual Dysfunctions are far more common than most people realize. Many people seek sexual counseling, for one or more of the following types of problems (DSM-IV, 2000; Heiman, 2002):

  • Desire Disorders – the individual has little or no sexual motivation.
  • Arousal Disorders – the person desires sexual activity, but is not easily sexually aroused.
  • Orgasm Disorders – the person does not have orgasms or has them too soon or too late.
  • Sexual Pain Disorders – the person experiences pain that makes love-making uncomfortable or impossible.

There was a time when people suffered such problems in silence, However, in recent years, effective medical treatments have helped many people with physical sexual problems. Counseling or therapy can also be helpful.
